I am interested in the recent wave of Containers, Cloud, ML, SDN and Devops developments. I try to follow the latest developments in Open source projects like Docker, Kubernetes, Istio, Knative, Tensorflow, CoreOS and how it all ties together. You can find my presentations and hacky code here.

Currently, I am working as a Hybrid cloud specialist in Google Cloud, Bangalore. My primary responsibility is creating and deploying solutions for customers in application modernization and hybrid cloud space. I have around 20+ years experience in the IT industry. My background is mostly in the infrastructure and application side of things and my Google cloud experience gave me interesting perspectives on Data analytics and Machine learning.

I was a Docker captain for 3 years(till 2018) and that gave me a lot of exposure to learning new things and meeting very smart people. Before Google cloud, I worked with Cisco systems for 10+ years in private cloud and networking. Before that, I worked in a bunch of startups.

I am author of “Mastering CoreOS” book. I did the technical review for Mastering Ansible book, Network programmability and Automation book, CoreOS Cookbook and Mastering Ansible(second edition) book and “Ansible for Network automation” report.

In this blog, my goal is to capture things that I am learning as part of this new wave of technology developments happening in the Cloud and Networking industry. The opinions expressed are my own and does not reflect opinions of my employer. You can reach me through linkedin or follow me in Twitter at @srmakam.
