First of all, Hi there.
I’m Nick, currently working in the Public Sector, and was a web dev guy, but now seem to be into DevOps. This site … err I have no idea. Probably my little slice of the internet to post stuff onto. I’d like to help businesses out with technical advice and see where that gets me.
As for experience you can find me on LinkedIn, but here is my bio on that site.
Primarily a SQL DBA / software designer and manager of IT systems. But currently getting into DevOps, Cloud Architecture, Docker & CI Pipeline.
Firmly believe that the more you learn about IT the more you realise how huge and complicated it all really is. The fun part is using your experiences within IT, from many different fields to solve problems, help my team and ultimately learn something new..
IT Project Manager designing web based applications, Business Objects Universes and other software solutions. Bringing together Prince2, ITIL & a good level of common sense & motivation to get the job done.
