    short story

    Hello

    I'm the Director of Technical Services at Go2Group. I hold a Bachelors degree in Computer Science.

    Started working in TCS, Chennai as a Campus recruit. Spent around 3.5 years in the United Kingdom, working for British Telecom and then migrated to the United States to join the Go2Group team.

    Now working as a DevOps SME and an Atlassian Consultant, implementing best practices and building custom solutions, to enable an efficient CI/CD pipeline.

      If you think it's expensive to hire a professional, wait until you hire an amateur!

      I am a doer

      It is easy to overlook the importance of a proper DevOps process until you experience it. A broken CI/CD pipeline results in loss of man-days, bad quality products and a frustrated working environment. What works in one company might not work in another and you need the people with the right knowledge and experience to adapt to your requirements and do whatever it takes to get it right.

      And, I can code. That makes a difference.
