My name is Ruan, A Platform Services Engineer focused on vSphere. I am venturing into the world of SysOps / DevOps, not sure what that actually mean but still doing it. I once heard someone say “The best way of learning is by teaching”, thus I will try to teach someone else something new.

This Blog is intended to show my journey into Infrastructure as code and automation practices. I am far from an expert in any field but found that I am fairly capable of getting out of trouble using my 18 years experience, training and bit of Googling.

I hold a few VMware VCP certifications and a VCAP Datacenter Deploy certification. I also hold a old Microsoft MCITP Enterprise admin certification.. With some hands on experience in the Cloud worlds of AWS and Microsoft Azure and a very passionate Home Lab builder (read as; Design, Build, Detroy and repeat) I tend to play around with multiple technologies and eventually hammer something together that form a solution to a problem that never existed before I touched it.
