Twenty sears of experience as a system administrator in heterogeneous networks, integrating Linux, various flavours of BSD and – occasionally – Windows.

Working at various companies developing software, I was responsible for CI and service transition. During that time, I noticed the need to understand developers better and started to learn programming beyond the needs of a system administrator, becoming a DevOps person coming from the other side – an OpsDev, if you will.

Focus of Activity MongoDB is a fast, mature and scalable NoSQL database. However, developing applications based on MongoDB has pitfalls for developers used to SQL based development. I helped both developers and operation specialists all over the globe to prevent those pitfalls and get fast, stable and reliable clusters up and running.
