About Me

Hi, my name’s Diego and I’m a DevOps and full-stack engineer. I help startups and corporates to get ideas into production by using cutting-edge technologies like Kubernetes, Openshift, AWS and Spring Boot.

I started as a back-end developer in the financial industry, where I learned agile methods and software quality standards. Then my entrepreneurial spirit led me to work on different projects using the lean startup method.

I’m always open to discuss ideas and collaboration opportunities.
