Vlad Ionescu, Independent Consultant
Hero since 2019
Vlad is a DevOps Consultant helping companies deliver more reliable software faster and safer. He is focused on observability and reliability, with a passion for rapid deployments and simplicity. He jokingly describes his role as a "professional mistake avoider".
Vlad’s work is predominantly focused on Kubernetes and Serverless. After starting with kops, he then moved to EKS which he enjoys pushing as far as possible. He can often be found sharing insights in #eks on the Kubernetes Slack.
When avoiding tech, Vlad is very much into cocktails, whiskey, and wine — finding him at a tasting or food pairing is a sure bet. He cherishes mental health and is an avid proponent of any effort in the area.
