I had a project pop up short notice that required we use a open source tool that we didn’t have on-staff expertise in. Mike stepped up, scoped the project and delivered a concise and thorough plan of action. I highly recommend Mike and will be leveraging him again in the future.

I hired Michael for a small-ish Python API project and he ended up staying with us for months. Michael is a very hard worker and very knowledgeable about modern development practices. He’s great at both establishing best practices as well as executing on getting the work done. I would highly recommend Michael as a knowledgeable practitioner and a great person.

How Can We Help?
In the early days of technology, engineers and technicians had a core focus. Perhaps they were the “exchange person” or the “active directory” person. It was a logical approach to have that focus from a financial and career stability perspective. Now, in the world of Cloud, DevOps, and Automation, it’s very rare to have one core focus. For example, there’s no longer the “virtual machines in the cloud” person. You’re expected to know many aspects of the cloud.
In the world we live in, Michael believes in having a core focus on a specific technology instead of a platform. For example, instead of having a core focus on Jenkins (the platform), have a focus on CI/CD (the technology).
Michael takes these considerations in when architecting, planning, and scaling any environment.
