How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?
With my 20+ years developer experiences, I’ve been helping enterprise Java developers build microservices, cloud native applications, and serverless functions from on-premise Kubernetes to public managed services. In the meantime, I’ve luckily learned, shared, asked about developers’ concerns, suggestions, feedback, and thoughts when they modernized existing monolithic applications in production environments. With that, I have more chances to evangelize them with shared experiences and knowledge so far.
