In this talk, I want to share with you how I came to where I stand today. Husband and father of a 5 months old son, director of developer experience at Red Hat, traveling the world. I will share with you the good, the bad, the ugly. My failures and my learnings along the way. And, don’t worry… some cloud related things too
