Principal Cloud DevOps Engineer - Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator & DevOps Expert

I’m an IT Professional who lives in Melbourne Australia since 2013 and been working in the industry since 2009.

I had performed various roles throughout my career mostly related to infrastructure side of Information Technology.

Some of titles I had owned in the past were:

  • IT Officer
  • Systems & Networks Administrator
  • Infrastructure Engineer
  • and lately I’ve been known as a Cloud DevOps Engineer starting from 2016.

Since 2013, I have been working for technology companies who have been creating, releasing, hosting and monitoring in-house built software applications.

During my career I was able to see the transition of Cloud technologies and DevOps practices that complements Agile project management style and how valuable it is to the businesses and engineers to migrate and adopt to these methodologies to improve the Software Development Lifecycle.

Long story short, I’m a former Server System Engineer gradually evolved into a Cloud DevOps Engineer since 2016 and Microsoft Azure is the first public cloud platform I have used. Since then I have been achieved to become a Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator and DevOps Expert. It’s safe to say that; my main area of expertise, is Microsoft Azure Cloud platform and other relevant SaaS, PaaS and IaaS technologies.

My other technology interests are public cloud platforms, Infrastructure as Code, scripting, automation and emerging virtualization technologies such as Docker containers and Kubernetes.
