He’s passionate about sharing the stories of success (and failure) of the teams he works with and his own experiences. Previously, he designed and built distributed scheduling systems using Symfony (PHP), Amazon SQS, DynamoDB, and Redshift. Most recently, he was responsible for designing, building, and delivering a modern software delivery platform using Go and Angular, which was integrated with Docker Swarm and GitLab.
