Sameer Chopra, author of The Work Ahead, is a humorist, a technologist and DevOps enthusiast. Employed at one of the big cloud providers, he spends his time doing buzzwordy things like “adding value,” “having impact” and “breaking barriers.” He has spoken at many tech conferences and to tech companies about DevOps and how to embrace change. Sameer lives in the US in a fly-over state. But don’t worry- he gets his fair taste of culture when he travels all over the cultural world- from San Francisco to New York. In his free time he annoys his wife and kids with jokes.
