Session: The (Air) Force awakens: From Kessel Run to the moons of Bespin
We’ll chat about the origins of #KesselRun,#PlatformOne, what we’ve nailed, what we’ve screwed up, and where we’re headed next.
JeffMcCoy is the CTO for Platform One, a group of nerds helping the DoD do DevSecOps right. They recently brought telework tools to tens-of-thousands of federal employees in a couple days, put Kubernetes on a fighter jet, are helping modernize major weapon systems and sport a Baby Yoda logo. Before Platform One, Jeff was the CTO of SpaceCAMP delivering modern software for Space Force and also helped create DDS’s Rogue Squadron building counter-UAS software for special forces and North American defense. Jeff also really sucks at job interviews and was hired as the first Air Force UX designer for Kessel Run only to be reassigned as a lead engineer for the program the first day on the job.
