WHEN HE'S NOT CODING...
HOW DID your JOURNEY INTO TECH BEGIN?
It began in 2010 as Network Support Engineer, I used to work in own premises data center dealing with network devices like Cisco switches, routers, and servers. I started part time to support my financial needs alongside my studies. Then I moved onto the next step to systems, and then virtualization and then cloud. After virtualization I moved to DevOps and realised the path was important, because on the cloud you need the same understating as your own premises. So, since 2013 I have been working as a DevOps engineer.
HOW DID you GET INVOLVED WITH CFG?
I was initially involved as a volunteer from 2013 – 2015 with a private training centre to teach and promote Linux operating systems. I also started answering questions on Stack Overflow to help the community. In 2021 I realized that needed to do more to support open source projects, so I sponsored some GitHub projects and started working as a volunteer at CFG to empower and promote women in the DevOps sector. I was the lead instructor on the first DevOps cohort.
