I would like to take this opportunity to Welcome Ramesh, he will be joining the Content Team and will be focussing on Modules. As time passes he will become more and more visible and most definitely won’t be a stranger. The whole team are thrilled to have Ramesh join us.
Here are a few words from Ramesh himself:
I am Ramesh Sencha, I have 11+ years of experience in Architecting, Designing, Developing & Managing enterprise products. I have worked on large-scale application development and build & deployment in multi-cloud environments. I am CKA certified and highly experienced with DevOps practices & Infrastructure Automation using Chef, Puppet, Terraform, Vault, Rundeck and Jenkins. In my spare time I am a keen bicyclist and I love to play Cricket and Badminton.
We have been spoilt rotten this week with a second Monday off in a row due to the Kings Coronation. I hope that anyone who chose to celebrate had a great time. In Belfast there were quite a few events running across the city to suit everyone!
