Sean Feeney
Architect of the digital age
 
 
I'm an experienced technology executive who bridges the divide between Dev and Ops. I help companies big and small develop and execute their technology strategy. I am a firm believer that complexity is toxic. There's an art to developing and implementing conceptually simple - yet operationally and functionally robust - solutions and with the whiteboard as my palette I have shown company after company that transformation is achievable.

Speaking

Minneapolis seems to have a lot of meetups. With three kids my time is at a premium these days, but I'd love to be invited to speak at your event. I probably don't have the free time to respond to your CFP unless you want to grab one of the works above. I will, however, put time into a deck for your event if it's a fit. Here are common topics I present on:
  • AWS and the cloud
  • DevOps
  • Open source
  • Datacenter migrations
  • Digital business strategy
  • Knowledge management
  • Legislative and/or corporate solutions to the student loan mess
  • The importance of youth, and a talent pipeline, in whatever business you think you're running
I also oblige hands-on workshop requests for the right audience and STEM competitive judging requests where possible.
