Work History

Hi, I’m Dave…!

Thanks or visiting my website! I’m David Menache and I have been a linux sysadmin and web developer for close to 20 years now. I am very interested in everything related to AWS and high availability web hosting. DevOps & Platforms is an aspirational title that arose from the passion I’ve developed around these particular topics in recent years.

This website is my playground. It is a place where I can experiment with new technologies related to these interests.
