My name is Ricardo Mendes, I have 2 decades of experience in different parts of the digital realm, my last position was project manager/CTO for an entrepreneurs-coworking-tech-event space in Brussels, it was a great opportunity to deploy my skill set but since I have taken the chance to specialize myself with a 7 months DevOps training with the goal of exploring my next steps in this field, I have always liked managing servers and deploying and maintaining web applications, so this was a good opportunity to learn the basics in different cloud providers and learn the fundamentals of the development and delivery lifecycle.

  • Automation is 100% handled by N8N and translation by DeepL, allowing the best translation possible given the context of war and the unique environment of information warfare.
