As a Platform Architect I bridge the gap between Infrastructure and Development. This means I get to support developers, implement the build processes , liaise with all parties on platform related activities , take responsibility for deployment and generally have lots of fun while doing all this. I’ve been doing this for far more years than I’d like to recall but apparently a large chunk of what I’ve been doing all these years is called DevOps! A few explantions I like of of what DevOps actually means can be found at the Grok and Roll and Katar.net blogs. Beyond the Devops type thing I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with Public cloud solutions. I decided that this blog would be the best place to gather my rather longer ramblings on these areas. I have a work blog here which covers a wider range of topics and I will carry on making the occasional post there . For my shorter thoughts on what’s happening in he cloud market place I contribute comments to Cloud Comments .net . So I’d just like to say hello and hope you’ll find some nuggets of interest over the coming months.
