I’m your host, Reddah Cherara, responsible for this blog DevOps For Beginners.

I'm developing software since I was a kid. I live in Montreal, Canada with my wife, my princess Ratil. I was weaned as a software developer on Microsoft BASIC in the 90's with z80 at the age 17, starting with my first PC Pentium 4, I continued programming on the PC with Turbo Pascal and C ++ , although I also spent significant time writing C++ in the first versions of Borland C++Builder. I am now quite comfortable in Java or C#, and I'm currently learning Go.

I consider myself a reasonably experienced  software developer with a particular interest in the human side of software development. Computers are fascinating machines, but they're mostly a reflection of the people using them. In the art of software development, studying code isn't enough; you have to study the people behind the software, too.

I'm highly motivated by learning new technology  and with this blog I can share these with the global software development communities.

Anyway this blog is a resource for myself, as I can’t remember EVERYTHING, and I hope it also serves as a resource to others. Over my career I have found so many valuable pieces of information from blogs of others. I thought it was about time that I contribute back to this community with some articles of my own.

I've worked at startups, where a developer is a real full-stack developer (from frontend to backend, from building to maintaining, from the cave to customer-facing meetings) and also at big companies, where stability and keeping high product quality standards is a must. Along my career I have been involved usually in development, design and architecture, for small and huge projects. Worked in waterfall and agile environments.

Now I'm working at a Canadian company as ECM Designer for a projects based on microservices. I like keeping ways of working as practical as possible but, at the same time, producing proper documentation and sharing knowledge.

You can find me on linkedin. If you have any comments on the stuff I write I would be thrilled to hear them, even if they're mean.

You can also laugh at my really bad git commits at Github.
