Actually the title is a lie…
This is the polar opposite of me being me.
I am usually a lurker, I find pride in being able to find the answers without asking the questions, it’s probably what drove my passion for technology.
I am going to do the exact opposite and I am probably going to overshare and give you a lot of useless information that is of no value, so I apologise in advance and you are free to scroll on
Without too much information, neurodiversity is a struggle, those that know, know, those that don’t can ask, but those that don’t want to know shouldn’t have to read it… I have had to make my own path over the years re: career and the only path is managing my own small business.
I have been a managed service provider for near to a decade and I tend to handpick my clients, the thing that has held me back in the past has been my lack of faith in the platforms available, I am not a software developer but I care about FoSS and have tried to keep up to date but became set in my ways. This year I could see things were changing and I decided enough was enough.
I am looking at setting up a platform for continuous delivery/deployment and have dived in the deep end this is how I learn.
I feel like the universe was waiting for this moment because Hashicorp has had all of the answers I need so far… Every problem I have had, I have made sure I have understood how to set things up manually, then find a solution to automate the process and each time my research has led me to a Hashicorp product, it literally feels like you are watching over me forget the bible…
Your philosophy feels closely aligned to mine, your software is free to use and your enterprise features really are that.
As I say I am not a developer, but I can do basic coding/scripting, I am more of a sysadmin, I do aim to setup a platform using your tools and I really hope that one day I am big enough to need to pay you a lot of money
What I do aim to do as one of my practice projects though is a blog following my experiences with Hashicorp products and guides etc and will share the content here, I need to start being better at being a community member, I just don’t feel I don’t have a lot to offer other than my motivation and drive to make things work properly
If anyone is interested in what I am doing or anyone has a project that they might need infrastructure for, I can either use my own existing infrastructure, brand new fresh bare metal, any existing cloud provider or potentially any custom solutions.
I am aiming to make a platform that makes it easy for my customers to develop, test and deploy highly optimised, scaleable code across a variety of platforms tailored for their target audience, I will be launching various products launched at markets based on their technical knowledge
I am definitely looking for people who have an interest in what I have to offer and I am open to networking and potential knowledge/skills/infrastructure sharing
