Tech Landscape

A thousand feet view of the tools, platforms, languages that make today's technology landscape. This is my reference card to keep track of where all the new tools fit in the jigsaw of Enterprise IT, especially for a microservices + cloud native setup. >>


My tech notes uploaded in one place.. I follow the zettlekasten method of learning, documenting and connecting notes, which allows me to continue learning multiple technologies in small steps over time. The Slipbox is arranged so that the notes are easy to retrieve and to connect across the technology landscape today. >>

About me

I love applying tech to solve real world problems. My day job involves work on cloud ops, but I love exploring automation, security tools, web dev, databases and much more in my free time. This site is a side project to document as many lessons, notes and observations as best as I can. Most of these come from my experience working with and leading some of the smartest people in the information technology sector. A few are based on my hands on projects. I am currently exploring AWS, Kubernetes, Svelte and Go.
