Hi there Hello there , my name is Russ.

Hello! I’m Russ, an IT professional with a strong background in DevOps and system administration. I’ve spent the last 30 years working in various IT roles across multiple industries. I have a deep passion for Linux, open-source systems, automation, and containers. I currently serve as the Practice Manager of SRE & DevOps at Node4, managing projects across public and private clouds.

Apart from my work, I have written and contributed to thirteen books primarily revolving around container technologies and automation. In my downtime, I enjoy expanding my vinyl record collection.

Publications 📚

All books were published by Packt Publishing, except for “Monitoring and Management With Docker and Containers”, which was published by The New Stack.
