I started my career as a sysadmin trainee in my alma-mater university during my bachelor studies. This motivated me a lot to the idea of DevOps in all senses of this word: working over organizational processes in engineering department, automating all kinds of routine, describing infrastructure assets and lifecycle parts in the source code.

During the last 8 years I have helped many companies to improve their working practices by providing technical guidance on cloud native toolkit, Infrastructure management and the “brave new world” of Kubernetes. But, most importantly, I’ve focused on the organisation and people, trying to solve their real-world problems, rather than adapting new technologies for the sake of having one.

As mkdev expert, I help companies to get around the new trends and practices by educating them. We’ve built the Observability workshop explaining the interconnection between metrics, logs, and traces.
