A Life in Devops

I like computers! I am a geek!

For many years I have played with numerous technologies and deployed many systems and have always taken notes about how I have done it. This was great for me as I always have had a knowledge base of information. However I have noticed that whilst there are always bigger and better things and slightly different ways of doing things, the same problems keep coming around.

This blog is about publishing ideas, solutions and annoyances I have had whilst working within DevOps. There is a lot of information from the past and a lot of new things I am learning, but if you are interested in anything to do with configuration management systems, containers and CI/CD pipelines then this site may well be for you.

I am a huge fan of the Raspberry Pi and as my wife says our house is run on pis I will post articles about what I have done with these amazing little computers.

I have worked in the IT industry for about 20 years, starting in support for Mirror Group Newspapers. After working in support for 9 years I became a consultant and helped clients develop, build and release their applications. This is when I first encountered DevOps, but it was called “Platform Architecture” then.

In 2016 I started working for Chef where I work with partners and clients to get Chef working for them. This means that I am able to play with a host of technologies such as ARM templates, Docker, Habitat, VMWare etc etc.
