Eric Smalling

Docker Inc.
Solution Architect
Eric has 25 years of professional experience in enterprise software development and architecture, including build, test and deployment automation. He has been practicing DevOps concepts since long before the term was coined. On practically every project throughout his career, he has worn multiple hats: developer, automated testing evangelist, version control administrator and build system engineer.

Eric has been a continuous integration advocate and implementer for nearly a decade, he is active in the Jenkins community and is responsible for implementing and administering a large-scale Jenkins cluster at one of the nation’s largest airlines. Eric started and runs the Dallas-Fort Worth Jenkins Area Meetup (JAM). A second generation software developer (his father was a SNOBOL coder in the 60s!), he grew up in the 1980s and was coding 8-bit machines in elementary school.

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, traveling, photography, volunteering at his church and, of course, hacking on software.
