Hello everyone!

Erik from Stockholm, Sweden. Currently working with helping companies build and improve cloud-based solutions and architectures, with a focus on cloud infrastructure and platform engineering - mainly with AWS in practice. Worked in a IT consultant role in the past 28 years.

Saw a note in dev.to about this community and thought this sounded like a great place :-)

Nice to meet you Erik, I think I'll want to check in with you about Web RTC and alternatives for AWS, but that's on a back burner for now. I do a good bit with serverless and lambdas, and have used serverless and amplify to deploy.

Hello there !

I am derlin, a passionate software engineer (hard on coding) drawn to devops against my will... Mostly working with Kubernetes (AWS EKS) and OpenShift (on-premise) right now, I had to learn the ropes of gitops (and all the tools/technologies surrounding it).

I must admit I enjoy it more than expected ;)

I love to learn (which I do well), but also to share. This community seems the perfect fit !

PS: I am already active on dev.to (same handle), where I post more software/less infra posts. See you there if you are interested !

Hi There,

I am Jatin, an AWS Engineer who is trying to shift from developer -> Core DevOps. Have been writing about aws for my employer for quite a time, but nobody talked about DevOps or how DevOps can help modern software application development.

Thank you OPS community for giving me this platform where I can learn and help others.

I will try to focus more on the basics where people who are just joining this community or starting their journey with DevOps are not overwhelmed.

Let's make this platform, this OPS community the best place/home for all the passionate cloud engineers, DevOps and tech guys.

Here is my first blog .

I regularly post about aws, and DevOps on LinkedIn too:-

Linkedin:- linkedin.com/in/jatinmehrotra/

Twitter:- twitter.com/imjatinmehrotra

I'm Marija from Microtica, a software developer and a co-founder of Microtica.

We're building a DevOps self-service platform for developers to be able to setup infrastructure and deploy apps in minutes.

Naturally because of this I'm interested in all topics DevOps, AWS, Kubernetes, GitOps.

I'm an advocate for all things lean, cloud, and automation. I help teams improve their feedback loops, build the right things (not just build things fast), and help teams make data-driven decisions. I believe that people and culture are critical for transformational change.

With a strong background in Software Development, and over a decade of experience consulting to enterprises, my passion for helping people, understanding computers, and problem-solving has made me a sought-after trusted advisor and thought-leader.

I'm so glad to have found this community!

I'm Jei from Malaysia.

Been focusing on DevOps & Cloud for the past 6 years building innovative tools and solutions (both personal and professional) coupled with my development background experience working with startups and enterprise companies.

Finally found a home where I can truly share all of my Dev.to articles that are mostly related to Ops/SRE/Cloud <3. I'm looking to learn, share and grow more with the community.

Glad to be part of this community @johnson_brad ! I've been holding back on posting new Ops related articles in Dev.to wondering if it would get to the right audiences. With this community, I don't need to hold back any longer. Stay tune for new posts coming soon! Got loads to share in relation to AWS, Azure, etc.

Hi,

I'm Rich Burroughs. I work as a Senior Developer Advocate at Loft Labs, where I focus on Kubernetes self-service and multi-tenancy. We created the open source tools vcluster and DevSpace.

Before working in DevRel I did infrastructure work for many years. I started as a sysadmin in the 1990s, and later move into doing config management and SRE.

I'm the host of a podcast called Kube Cuddle where I interview people in the Kubernetes community. You should be able to find it in your podcast player of choice.

Hey there this is Clemens,

my path was quite straightforward: PHP-Coder -> IT Generalist -> DevOps
Besides working mostly with cloud technology and being deep into the automation side of things, I am fascinated by the social aspects of DevOps.

I was only a little bit active on dev.to and would like to repost an article on here to see how it fares. So if no one steps up to tell me that it is a bad idea I'll go ahead with it 8-)

Cheers
