Leaving Permanent Employment

Now is an opportune time for a preview of exciting news coming down the tracks at Maolte.

I will be trading at some point in June as an Engineer, Writer and now Founder. Do stay tuned for exciting times ahead.

New Job and Exam Success

I have two updates for you. Firstly, it gives me great pleasure to announce my appointment to Sage Software as a Full-Time CloudOps Engineer starting November 15th, 2021. I will be joining a CloudOps team and get the opportunity to work on multi-stack production environments alongside my colleagues supporting Sage's cloud offering. Secondly and as exciting, I have sat and passed by a comfortable margin the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam. This was my first all-practical exam on servers ever under time pressure and a true learning experience in Kubernetes. I have shared my CKA experiences on my blog at https://maolte.ie/blog/25-certified-kubernetes-administrator-exam, which is a good read for technology lovers and a must-read for anybody studying for the CKA.

The Journey Begins

Just under 4 hours to the full launch of the site and my set up of my freelancing vehicle Maolte, which I am just bubbling with excitement about. Stay tuned to Blogs over the coming days, weeks, and months via menu selection and catch short blogs on everything from DevOps CICD gotchas to Infrastructure monitoring tips to Novel updates; forthcoming availability change updates plus more. Also, why not sign up to my Writing or Tech email lists, so you can get updated with these snippets as we go. My newsletters will range from weekly to monthly distributions with any more frequent updates via blogs only, as I know how irritating it is to be spammed on an email list. If you would like to see something added to them or have a question on availability or anything on the service offering, drop me a line via Contacts or directly at john@maolte.ie
