- DevOps engineers deploying custom software to Kubernetes
I have loved technology since my first Commodore 64, and that passion remains to this day. My days have me integrating enterprise platforms with Octopus, writing guides and books for platforms like Kubernetes, blogging, and training my colleagues, testing bleeding edge open source projects and contributing to various blogs. I hold patents from my time as an engineer at RedHat, and have authored several open source projects.
