DevOps Zone is brought to you in partnership with:

Ben is a writer, editor, coffee addict, beer snob, and music lover living in Cary, NC. He first became interested in computer hardware at a young age, and has built more than his fair share of desktop PCs over the years. He's a total device junkie and welcomes the coming age of the Internet of Things. His interest has since spread to tech media in general—in particular he writes about cloud technologies, middleware, DevOps, IoT, and enterprise architecture. He's easy to get a hold of, especially on Twitter, where he keeps an active presence. Get in contact to discuss all things software, whatever your favorite beer is, interesting tech topics... really, just talk about anything.
