IT Professional with 10+ years experience in Enterprise
I'm a young, passionate and motivated IT Professional currently working for the world's largest Cloud Provider. I'm also the co-creator of Python Programming blog - PyBites.
I began my career at the age of 19, working for Sun Microsystems where I maintained a data centre of all of Sun's hardware. I was able to play, build, test and troubleshoot systems ranging from systems older than me (at the time!) through to the latest prototypes. It was an amazing experience to which I attribute my successes today.
I then moved into the Field Support Team at Oracle in Australia where I spent my days deep in the heart of vendor data centres troubleshooting, repairing and installing beastly enterprise systems and appliances.
Currently I'm employed by Amazon Web Services Australia doing Data Centre-y things that I can't talk about.
I have exposure to many different products, be it hardware (SPARC, x86, Storage, Networking) or software (Database, Virtualization, Middleware, Applications), and am well in the process of learning many.
My passion is with constant self improvement in business, family, hobby or financially oriented areas.
My heart however is in I.T. I love technology, I love gaming and these days, I'm loving Python Programming.
I've been an avid gamer for as long as I can remember. Owning an original Atari was one of my crowning achievements as an 8 year old! Upgrading straight to a Nintendo 64 was like discovering heaven.
I discovered PC gaming in high school and never looked back. Most days were spent leading the fight in Battlefield 1942 and its sequels. Then in my later high school years the behemoth that is World of Warcraft came along and I was hooked.
PyBites takes up quite a bit of time but is one of my most satisfying achievements to date. Not only did it kick off my Python programming obsession but it also enabled me to finally build my first web app. I did this using the Flask micro web framework.
From building my first PC in high school to maintaining million dollar enterprise servers, there's no experience I haven't enjoyed and embraced.
I'd love nothing more than to share my experiences with the world.
