He is a dynamic speaker on topics in DevOps, security testing, and serverless architecture.
James started the the Lonestar Application Security Conference, which is the largest annual security conference in Austin, Texas, and he also runs DevOps Days Austin and formerly served on the global DevOps Days board. He also holds several security certifications, including CISSP and GWAPT.
In his spare time James tweets as @wickett and he is trying to learn how to make a perfect BBQ brisket.
