I have talked about Salt at Jeudis du Libre conference. Check my Github for the decks.

I will give a talk about open source orchestration with Ansible at Ansible Automates EMEA 2020.

A bit more about me

I like building simple, fast, powerful, resilient, secure and automated infrastructures. Preferably based on open tools and protocols.

I care about security and privacy.

I automate things whenever I can! I'm a big fan of Ansible, Node-RED, Automagic on Android, Ulauncher on Linux, and hackable connected devices. For example, this website is automated.

I'm a heavy keyboard user and as such, i3wm is my window manager. I wrote about my desktop environment here.

When I'm not busy at the computer, I travel, hike, ski, camp out and take photos.

I'm an INTJ: INTJs are known as the "Systems Builders" of the types, perhaps in part because they possess the unusual trait of combining imagination and reliability. ~ Marina Margaret Heiss
