I am SRE Manager at LinkedIn with 8 years of industry experience. ELK and kafka are integral part of my day to day activity, apart from my regular responsibilities I build and manager ELK cluster for various team.
I am a technology enthusiasts and passionate on developing large scale infrastructure, I believe complex and large operations don’t necessarily have to be complex, simplicity is the best way.
