Who am I?


Since I can remember I've been in love with art: cinema, photography, painting.
But also I've been in love with technology and how things work.
That's why I was a SysAdmin until 2014 when my other passion came into play.

From 2013 to 2018 I worked for my own project as a photographer: Pictob.
I went from solo to have a team of 4 photographers, the whole project was based on automation; something better learnt in my engineering work experience.
We had clients such as UberEats Spain, Take Eat Easy, Real Madrid (theclubme agency), Pernod Ricard Spain, and several small businesses around Spain.

Since 2018 I’m back in the game as a SRE / DevOps / SysAdmin.

What a ride!

What I like in tech


Kubernetes

I'm preparing my CKA (Certified Kubernetes Administrator) because I really love how Kubernetes works and the possibilities it opens.

Infrastructure as Code

Automation is key. From time saving to disaster recovery practire, IaC is awesome. Mix it with some configuration automation software if possible.

DevOps

DevOps culture is about breaking walls and avoiding silos. I enjoy having cooperation between departments and help people to be more independent to speed up the value stream.

Team

Feeling that your team is working fine is crucial, also to have ethics, empathy and honesty not only with them but also if you report to somebody.


Knowledge


Books

COVID19 and work from home helped me to have more time for reading and studying. So I opened a list of books that I've been reading and consider useful in some point.

Medium and blogs

Medium and community blogs are so helpful to fulfill knowledge. No matter if you are looking for Kubernetes the Hard Way or some example of infrastructure in the cloud.
