About the Speaker
Chris Layton hails from the tech trenches in Memphis,TN where he kept the packets flowing for over a decade for a locally owned ISP as a Senior Engineer. At some point in 2010 the call of the mountains, and large supercomputers, in the Knoxville area proved too strong and he moved out east to work at Oak Ridge National Labs on the HPC Infrastructure team. When he is not hacking away at a keyboard Chris enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter (usually outdoors), racing small sports cars, and travelling.
Chris also serves on the LOPSA Tech Team.
