My name is Jason Paul. I’m a computer geek with over 20 years experience in Information Technology.

Currently I’m focused on growing my career in Cloud, DevOps, Infrastructure, Platform, and/or Site Reliability Engineering.

I’m experienced with Amazon Web Services and Docker, as well as container orchestration like Kubernetes. I like automation and Infrastructure as Code, and frequently use tools like Ansible and Terraform. I mainly code in Bash and Python.

I run a fairly extensive homelab based on Proxmox and TrueNAS, and I’m constantly updating and adding services to test and experiment with.

I’m currently a member of the AWS Community Builders program and an active member of our local Kitchener-Waterloo Linux User Group.

I enjoy sharing knowledge and information around the topics I learn. I hope some of the things I post help you.

About Me

When I’m not learning about new technologies, I’m usually travelling with my wife, spending time with friends, or checking out new restaurants and breweries to sample good food and craft beer. I enjoy cooking, video games, board games, skiing, swimming, archery, cycling, and going to the gym.

I volunteer at The Food Bank of Waterloo Region when I have spare time, helping in the warehouse where needed.
