Bruce Becker

Senior Operations Officer

Bruce is Senior Operations Officer of the EGI Foundation. After a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Cape Town, he finished two postdocs at CEA Saclay and INFN Cagliari on the ALICE experiment at CERN. He joins the EGI Operations team after a long history of close collaboration. The DevOps Bootcamp he has developed over the years, using methodology inspired by the Carpentries, aims to transfer the skills needed to make infrastructure development more agile and collaborative. He has been involved in supporting several user communities large and small, mostly concentrating on researchers from the Southern, Western and East African region.

Among Bruce’s many passions are continuous application delivery, frictionless data infrastructure, code as a research object and anything you can do on a beach. Ask him about automation, revolution and rock and roll.
