Who Are We?

This lesson introduces both of the authors of this course: Viktor and Darin.

We'll cover the following

Before we dive deeper into chaos engineering, let me introduce you to the team: me, Viktor, and another guy, Darin.

Who is Viktor?

Let’s start with me. My name is Viktor Farcic. I currently work in CloudBees. However, things are changing, and by the time you are reading this, I might be working somewhere else. Change is constant, and one can never know what the future brings. At the time of this writing, I am a principal software delivery strategist and developer advocate. It’s a very long title and, to be honest, I don’t like it because it is too long to memorize. But that’s what I am, officially.

What else can I say about myself? I am a member of the Google Developer Experts (GDE) group, and I’m one of the Docker Captains. You can probably guess from those credentials that I focus on containers, Cloud, Kubernetes, and a few other things.

I’m a published author. I have written quite a few books under the umbrella of The DevOps Toolkit Series. I also wrote DevOps Paradox and Test-Driven Java Development. Besides those, I have done a few Udemy courses.

I am very passionate about DevOps, Kubernetes, microservices, continuous integration, continuous delivery, and many other topics. I prefer coding in Go.

I speak in a lot of conferences and community gatherings, and I hold a lot of workshops.

I have a blog called TechnologyConversations.com where I keep my random thoughts, and I co-host a podcast called DevOps Paradox.

What really matters is that I’m curious about technology, and what I do changes often. A significant portion of my time is spent helping others (individuals, communities, or companies).

Now, you will meet the second person involved in the creation of this course. His name is Darin, and I will let him introduce himself.

Who is Darin?

My name is Darin Pope. I’m currently working at CloudBees as a professional services consultant. Along with Viktor, I’m the co-host of DevOps Paradox.

Whether it’s figuring out the latest changes with Kubernetes or creating more content to share with our listeners and viewers, I’m always learning. Always have, always will.

In the next lesson, we will discuss the principles behind chaos engineering.
