Greetings! I am Ilias, an engineer with experience in Kubernetes, Linux, Golang, and IaC. As a full-time Operations Engineer, I am deeply involved in infra-development and software-development, continually striving to innovate and improve. Additionally, I extend my skills and expertise as a freelancer, enthusiastically embracing new consulting opportunities.
Outside of my professional responsibilities, I engage in a variety of tech-related pursuits. These include software development, contributing to FOSS projects, and broadening my knowledge through reading. In moments of downtime, I enjoy unwinding with my favorite TV shows.
My commitment to the principles of open-source software, digital privacy, security, and sustainability extends beyond mere interest. These core values guide my efforts towards innovation, transparency, and trust. In an increasingly digital world, the need to protect personal data and advocate for privacy rights is paramount. Moreover, I am an advocate for sustainable practices within the technology sector, concentrating on the development of sustainable software that not only prolongs the life of hardware but also minimizes electronic waste. After all, the longevity of quality software and hardware benefits not just us but our planet too.
For communications, I lean towards Matrix, which has end-to-end encryption (E2E) enabled by default. It’s secure, and we can chat freely.
If you’re more comfortable reaching out via email, that works for me. Just remember, I use a third-party email provider and while we’d like to think our emails are private, they can potentially be accessed by others. So, for our mutual peace of mind and a good dose of privacy, let’s use GPG to secure our communications.
Should you have a project aligning with my areas of expertise or need consulting services, I encourage you to reach out. Looking forward to connecting with you!
