If you want to work with me just get in touch! I’m always open to new & interesting opportunities.
My interests range widely but are somewhat confined to the technology sphere.
- Automation is what I crave most, sometimes even to my own detriment
- Writing is something I enjoyed for a while and do in public since 2020. Technical posts, tutorials & end user documentation - I enjoy writing it all!
- Home Automation: I love to automate things in my home with HomeKit and Home Assistant
Tools & Technologies
It is my daily driver and first choice for anything from quick proof-of-concept scripts to large scale backend operations.
It runs most of my daily automations and event based logic in small function-as-a-service scenarios.
The Basic Web Stack
Most of what I do is either static rendered sites like this one with Hugo, plain HTML served with NGINX or server-side rendered content with Django or Flask.
It’s my language of choice for complex web systems or APIs. I’m comfortable with Django and can use Flask if need be.
YAML, agent-less, automation - there is no other three word combination that makes me happier.
I’ve used it in completely new projects, challenging legacy infrastructure and situations where challenging doesn’t even cut it to manage both Linux and Windows hosts as well as cloud services.
Git is my version control of choice and whenever I have the chance I will use GitLab and it’s great CI/CD tooling to make life simpler.
Personally I use their great SaaS offering but I have experience running 100+ user deployments on premise including runners on container clusters, Linux and Windows hosts.
Where Code Runs
In the end code needs to run somewhere - OpenShift is where it’s at in my day job so I’m quite comfortable with it.
For personal projects I’m more drawn towards VM based deployments with Ansible on DigitalOcean or experimenting with function-as-a-service environments.
