Rich loves building things in the cloud and tinkering with different technologies. Lately this involves either Kubernetes or Serverless. Based in the UK, he enjoys attending (Ya remember that!) technical conferences and speaking to other people about new technologies.
When he's not working, he likes spending time with his family, playing the guitar and riding his mountain bike. Having now discovered podcasts, he is making a news years resolution to consume more content and try and get through a book a month.
To improve his development skills he has also started writing smaller utility applications to simplfy the more repetitive tasks e.g.
- image manipulation
- text manipulation
- studying for certifications
Rich is also the Author of Hands-On Serverless Computing with Google Cloud.
In the book you learn about all the cool Google Serverless toys i.e. AppEngine, Cloud Functions and Cloud Run.
|App Engine||Fully Managed serverless platform for developing and hosting web applications at scale.|
|Cloud Functions||Scalable PAYG functions (FAAS)|
|Cloud Run||Fully managed compute platform for deploying containerized workloads|
Available at all good bookstores
