En ligne Hors ligne
I'm an expert, highly-intelligent, and flexible DevOps guy. My primary focus has been on userspace Linux Systems Administration, but like all true DevOps experts I can easily switch back and forth between programming ("Dev") and systems administration ("Ops"). I have a particular passion for version control (Git, etc) and automation (all types from the simplest cronjob or shell script to a full featured configuration management system such as Puppet). Much of my professional-level programming experience has been in Ruby ("on Rails" or plain), but I'm also experienced with a broad variety of other tools and languages, and can very quickly adjust to new, complex systems. My greatest non-technical skills are that I take the time to really learn what my clients want, I'm meticulously honest, and I adjust to new, complex system, incredibly fast.
