Russ McKendrick

I am an experienced solutions architect who has been working in IT and related industries for the better part of 25 years. During my career, I have had varied responsibilities in many different sectors, ranging from looking after an entire IT infrastructure to providing first-line, second-line, and senior support in both client-facing and internal teams for small and large organisations.

I work almost exclusively with Linux, using open source systems and tools across both dedicated hardware and virtual machines hosted in public and private clouds at Node4 Limited, where I head up the Open Source Solutions team.

In my spare time, I have written five books "Monitoring Docker", "Extending Docker", "Docker Bootcamp", "Mastering Docker" and "Kubernetes for Serverless Applications" which are all available now from Packt. I have also contributed to "Monitoring and Management With Docker and Containers", which was published by The New Stack.

My sixth book, Learn Ansible , has just been published by Packt.

I also buy way too many records.
