Receiving the final sign off after four months off for my ruptured appendix.
I'm a Software Engineer with a passion for backend engineering, especially with regard to APIs and automation. I've recently been gaining a hands-on experience of DevOps culture and practices, and use my site as a method of blogging about my learnings, as well as sharing information about projects I have previously, or are currently, working on in my spare time.
I'm a GNU/Linux user, a big advocate for the Free Software Movement, and I try to self host my own services where possible, instead of relying on other providers.
