I currently work as an Automation and Operations Engineer specialising in Linux-based systems and Amazon Web Services as part of a major DevOps consultancy working with FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies and multi-national firms across Europe.
I graduated from Cardiff University in 2005, and I have almost 20 years experience in working with Linux systems. Since 2010 I have been working under the DevOps methodology, working heavily around on automation of systems at all levels, as well as accelerating development and deployment of features and fixes for the business.
For the last two years, I have been working as part of a consultancy firm which specializes in helping larger, and enterprise companies facilitate their DevOps transformations, either starting from their earliest stages or helping other companies progress or accelerate their journey. This output ranges from analysis and reporting of their current state with details on areas of improvement, to full on-site engagements. I also contribute to new PoC and MVP projects as part of an effort to enable companies to develop best practices around Agile, DevOps, and cloud support.
