About Me, Lou πŸ‘‹

Lou

Hey, I’m Lou: a software engineer fascinated by what we can create using cloud tech.

The cloud industry changes fast, and I always found it difficult to keep up. After struggling to
find up-to-date and practical content I just ended up trying to make it myself!

It’s my aim that following along is like having a (keen!) friend who likes to
keep you up-to-date on on all things cloud software engineering.

I publish an article here every monday and publish the cloud software engineering newsletter to 400+ engineers
every month.
You can find me on Twitter for more bite-sized
☁️ cloud stuff, or Instagram for more
of the behind-the-scenes type things.

Speak soon, Cloud friend!
