Speaker - Tom "spot" Callaway
Tom is a Principal Open Source Strategist for AWS. He has been a part of the FOSS community since 1997, when he skipped his last day of junior high to go to Linux Expo. During college, he worked for a high-availability startup to cover tuition, and when they crashed along with the majority of the IT sector, he dropped out of college and went to work for Red Hat full-time. He worked for Red Hat for almost twenty years, in Support, Sales Engineering, Release Engineering, Engineering Management, University Outreach (CTO's office), and Employment Brand. He’s an active contributor to Fedora and helped to write the Fedora Packaging and Legal Guidelines which are still in use today. He is co-author of Raspberry Pi Hacks (2013, O’Reilly). When he’s not working, he finds enjoyment in 3D printing, pinball, hockey, games (board & video), geocaching, craft beer, B-movies, science fiction, trivia, traveling, and his wife and two boys.
