Bret Fisher

DevOps Consultant

Bret Fisher is a Virginia Beach-based freelance DevOps and Docker consultant, trainer, speaker, and open source volunteer. Bret has been a cloud and data center ops and system administrator for 20 years. Currently, he helps teams Dockerize their apps and systems and improve their speed of deployment, resiliency, metrics, and awareness (all that DevOps-y stuff). Bret is a Docker Captain and Code for America Brigade Captain. He runs several monthly meetups, speaks at conferences, and is obsessed with containerizing any app he sees. (He’ll likely talk your ear off about it next time you meet.) Bret also develops in Node.js, Bash, and general web, usually for open source projects. In his free time, he does CrossFit, surfs a little, geeks out in the awesome local dev community in Virginia Beach, and travels with his wife. He writes at and tweets at @bretfisher.
