Myles Young
I am a father and husband with a passion for tech. I have large-scale enterprise IT experience in network security, agile development, middleware, QA, system reliability engineering, and data infrastructure engineering. I have worked in DevOps for most of my IT career with a focus on using automation and big data technologies for operational analytics and log aggregation to further support CI/CD pipelines. I have a great appreciation for distributed systems and finding non-obvious answers in mountains of data. I am excited to be working at Linux Academy where I get to share what I've learned with our awesome students!
