About the Author:

Trevor Roberts, Jr. is a Senior Technical Marketing Manager for VMware. Trevor

has the CCIE Data Center certification, and he is a VMware Certified Advanced Professional

in the Data Center Design and Administration concentrations. In his spare time,

Trevor shares his insights on data center technologies at http://www.VMTrooper.

com, via the vBrownBag Professional OpenStack and Professional VMware podcasts,

and on Twitter (@VMTrooper). His contributions to the IT community have garnered

recognition by his designation as a VMware vExpert, Cisco Data Center Champion, and

EMC Elect.

 

Josh Atwell is a Cloud Architect for SolidFire, focusing on VMware and automation

solutions. Over the past 10+ years, he has worked very hard to allow little pieces of code

to do his work for him through various automation tools. Josh is a father of two boys with

wife Stephanie, and a daughter is on the way in early 2015. Based in the Raleigh, North

Carolina, area, he enjoys time with his family, golf, audiobooks, and trying new bourbons.

Josh has been highly active in the virtualization community, where he’s been a leader of

technology-based user groups such as CIPTUG, VMUG, and UCS Users Group. Josh

has worked with others on preparing for their professional development pursuits through

the vBrownBag podcast and the Virtual Design Master competition. Josh is also a regular

public speaker and contributing author to the Mastering vSphere series. Never known for

lacking an opinion, he blogs at vtesseract.com and talks shop on Twitter as @Josh_Atwell.

 

Egle Sigler (@eglute, anystacker.com) is currently a Principal Architect at Rackspace. She

started her career as a software developer, and still has a soft spot for all the people that

write, test, and deploy code, because she had a chance to do all of those tasks. Egle dreams

about a day when writing, testing, and deploying code will be a seamless and easy process,

bug and frustration free for all. Egle believes that knowledge should be shared, and tries to

do so by writing this book, giving talks and workshops at conferences, and blogging.

 

Yvo van Doorn has more than a decade of system administration experience. The first

part of his career, he manually built out and configured bare-metal servers. At Classmates,

Yvo became a champion of configuration management and virtualization. Before joining

Chef, he learned firsthand the power of VMware’s products when he moved a small Seattle

technology company’s complete production stack over to its virtualization platform. He’s

a strong believer in the culture change that comes with DevOps. When he isn’t busy

spreading the gospel of Chef, he’s probably enjoying a hoppy IPA, exploring the great

outdoors, or celebrating his Dutch heritage while eating a wheel of gouda and watching

Oranje lose the World Cup. Yvo lives with his wife and black lab in Seattle, Washington.
