About This Blog

Increasing development productivity and building a foundation for technical thinking with development patterns are the main themes of (almost all) articles on this website. From time to time, I will also write some quick reviews about the latest technologies that I find interesting.

If you're looking for tutorials and how-tos, I highly recommend visiting SlideScript — the platform I created to provide tutorials for how you can build in the cloud.

DISCLAIMER Everything on this site should be considered my own viewpoint.

Things That I Do

I'm constantly learning new technologies and what I love the most is to simplify the complexity of technologies and turn into something easier to understand.

In short

I write — I'm specialized in containers, serverless computing, and microservices integration patterns - which you can find most of my articles here.

I give talks — at various conferences, mainly concentrating in South East Asia. You'll find the list of my talks in this page.

I create content and run SlideScript — a short video-based online course platform, which you can join for free. From beginners to pro, feel free to drop at SlideScript and learn something new.
