“When I started my career in IT, Infrastructure meant plugging tin together, being the eyes and hands on that operation. However, with the introduction of Cloud and DevOps all of that has changed. We no longer fight with server cage nuts to implement Infrastructure, we now fight with code to do that.
I’ve transformed from a traditional on premises Infrastructure engineer to Cloud Solution Architect. I’ve adopted the DevOps concepts of continuous deployment, feedback, and continuous learning to deploy Infrastructure as Code now. I’ve learnt concepts and tools I’d previously thought were only for developers, my core values haven’t changed though I still aim to build resilience, reliable, secure Infrastructure.”
