Sometimes I speak publicly. This is a place for those resources.

Aaron Aldrich is a Community Builder at Elastic and a founding organizer of the DevOps CT meetup & DevOpsDays Hartford 2017. He is passionate for connecting humans and using technology to enhance our natural inclination to connect with eachother. His writing can occasionally be found on crayzeigh.com if it's greater than 140 characters or on twitter @crayzeigh if fewer.


In general, I'll share my slides out using my slideshare account. That's here:

Future Events

As a Developer Advocate and Community Builder for Elastic, I'm traveling to many more conferences. While I'm not always speaking on stage, I'm willing to vamp on anything if you hum a few bars.


Past Events

While some may be the same talks I'll often update or edit slides between appearances; most talks are relatively off-the-cuff and content from one iteration of a talk may not perfectly match another. So I've uploaded each time I've talked. Usually the latest one is the best.
