Today I completed my 5th AWS Certification. Something which I had hoped to complete before the end of 2017, but life got in the way. I started working dabbling with AWS a while ago - signed up for a free account at way back in the end of 2014 and started to play with it, but not too much. It was  not until the beginning of 2017 that I really went in full force. When I declared my goals for Q1 2017 one of them was to work on AWS.  I am happy to say that I have accomplished this goal -...

I cannot believe it is over 3 years since I created the openstack-git-env container.

I hardly mix my professional and personal life here on this blog. I will every now and again throw in some thoughts and feelings from my personal beliefs into my blog posts, when appropriate. The last time I did a Jewish perspective on a technical conference was VMworld 2014 in San Francisco - VMworld - from a Religious Jewish Orthodox Perspective. It was really interesting to see the comments in the blog post and also the feedback I received on Twitter - which lead me to realization that...
