Stephen co-authored Docker in Action, 2nd Edition to share knowledge of how to use Docker from development through production.
Articles on process, product, and technical matters appear on the qualimente blog.
A few times a week on NoDrama DevOps, I share my thoughts on building robust systems, architecting for and migrating to AWS, and using DevOps and engineering practices to manage complexity and deliver safely.
I am an active organizer and speaker in the Phoenix tech community.
I help organize and run these following events:
- DevOps Phoenix (Organizer)
- Docker Phoenix (Organizer)
- DevOpsDays Phoenix
We are always looking for speakers to share relevant topics – reach out!
These are the presentations I have delivered publicly. Please contact me to arrange for a private presentation of these or similar topics for your team.
