I was interviewed for Scott Lowe’s Full Stack Journey podcast hosted by #packetpushers #vexpert

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

Full Stack Journey tells personal stories about the ongoing quest to become a full stack engineer: an IT pro who can move among multiple silos and work across multiple layers of the modern data center.

Very cool to be asked, as I feel my personal IT transformation journey has only just begun.
I admire Scott greatly and his many vSphere books helped me get my first certifications.
His Blog is an amazing source of information, and his own shift toward cloud-native technologies is something I am very much hoping to emulate.

Robert and I talk about a few different topics during the episode:

  • The need for IT professionals to shift their mindset to become more of a facilitator, a mediator between silos

  • Embracing DevOps (it’s about more than a name change!)

  • Trying to find the balance between hands-on experience and broader architect-level knowledge
