“There he goes. One of God’s own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.”

A DevOps specialist by profession and a grease monkey by heart.

Integrator for various platforms and services.
Rich experience with multidisciplinary environments.

LINUX and MS environments on AWS and AZURE cloud providers, and as well ONPREM with VMWARE infra,
I like the UBUNTU flavor the most but live in peace with all of them.
For infra as a code I prefer to use TERRAFORM, specially on AWS.
Strong hands-on experience with containerized and microservices ecosystem – Docker / Kubernetes
Experienced with EKS, REDHAT OPENSHIFT, k3s, RKE, and RANCHER as a kubernetes manager, experienced with ROSA as well.
Experienced with HELM, deploying, maintaining and upgrading.

In the CI\CD domain I often use good old JENKINS (could be scripted or declarative), GITLAB CI, as well i am experienced with GitHub Actions workflows and selfhosted runners.
I am pretty used to DOCKER and often use DOCKER COMPOSE, I write optimized DOCKERFILEs , emphasis on layers and multistage files.
For monitoring I use GRAFANA, and very much like it stacked with INFLUXDB and TELEGRAF.
