About Me - Bret Fisher

Trying to be a better human, and help others do the same.

Who's also a people-person who finds himself in front of the computer way too often.

Hey, thanks for stopping by. I'm a freelance DevOps and Docker consultant, Udemy Instructor, trainer, speaker, and Open Source volunteer working from Virginia Beach, VA

I teach courses on Docker and Container technology that you can find here.

I do live training workshops often, which you can come join me at over here.

I've got my resume over here (yawn). Got questions? bret@bretfisher.com

I volunteer as a Docker Captain and Code for America Brigade Captain.

^^^^ I like to help others. ^^^^

I'm obsessed with containerizing any app I see, and I'll likely talk your ear off about it next time we meet.

Oh, also I'm a damn good freelance Cloud, Linux, Docker, Microsoft, and Open Source sysadmin focusing on DevOps tasks around continuous delivery, containers, automation, and anything that improves platforms and services on the web.

I sometimes develop in Node.js, Bash, and general web, usually for open source. Created a cloud services and consulting company coreenable.com. Created a web startup winsitter.com (that didn't take off) for business to easily monitor their servers. Have been blogging tech for over 15 years (check Way Back Machine from 2000).

I'm a volunteer captain for Code for Hampton Roads, which is a Code for America Brigade, helping open government data and bring local gov into the modern web.

Always looking for new adventures.

When not working, I CrossFit, surf a little, geekout in the awesome local dev community http://757dev.org, hangout in my neighborhood at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and ViBe District, and travel with my Wife. We spend our time trying to figure out how to "live deliberately". Say hi: @BretFisher or bret@bretfisher.com
