About

Hi, ๐Ÿ‘‹ My name is Danny!

I'm a Cloud Consultant who started using AWS since 2014 and I have been specialising myself in building high-availability environments using automation (IaC) & migrating workloads.

My fascination with Cloud and Automation started when I was started my first job as a Unix Administrator in 2013. My job was to maintain and monitor loads of on-premise servers for our customers. This meant we had to do a lot of repetitive tasks in order to keep the websites up and running continuously. Through a new project, I discovered AWS and its concepts of creating highly available environments using auto-scaling and distributed systems.

These concepts sparked my interest and inspired me to automate and build scalable, self-healing, and immutable (stateless) environments. This meant I had to learn more about the DevOps way of thinking and use toolings such as CloudFormation, git, python, and bash. By continuously developing myself Iโ€™ve learned to adapt myself quickly to new emerging technologies.

In 2020 I started this blog because I wanted to write down my learnings on my day-to-day activities as a Cloud Engineer who works with AWS Services. So far this had two positive effects, I keep track of what I build and other people can benefit from the knowledge that I share in public.
