Hey, I’m Adam Hawkins, independent software consultant, trainer, writer and speaker. My goal is help teams deliver software sooner, safer, and happier. I think continuous delivery paired with continuous improvement is the best way to do that. DevOps.
I started my career as a full stack web developer. That taught me sound software architecture principles and software engineering practices like test driven development.
Over time I shifted focus on to backend services and infrastructure. That lead me continuous deployment, production operations, SRE, and ultimately to DevOps.
I currently work as an SRE at Skillshare.
On the personal side, I was born in the California Bay Area. I lived abroad from 2011 to 2019 in Finland, Germany, Sweden, and India. I’ve lived in Hawaii with my wife since 2019. My hobbies include travel, trance, coffee, and the ocean.
