I am working as a Principal Developer at Ericsson Software Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. My interests include automation, CI/CD, DevOps, and Infrastructure and currently involved in several large scale CI/CD initiatives both internally and within open source.

I served as a committer-at-large member in OPNFV Technical Steering Committee (TSC) between 2016-2018 and I am currently a member of Nordix Technical Committee. (TC)

The initiatives I take part in aim to establish CI/CD principles and practices in the industry and across open source. OPNFV Cross Community CI (XCI) Project started within OPNFV community during 2016 which I was the creator and technical lead of. XCI helped us to pave the way for broader collaboration across different open source communities in CI/CD and Infrastructure area. This resulted in an initiative named OpenCI in April 2018. I am co-founder of this initiative.

Following the work we have been doing within the industry and across various open source communities, we proposed the formation of Special Interest Group (SIG) Interoperability to Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF). The SIG was approved during January 2020 by CDF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC). I currently serve as the chair to the SIG. In addition to my involvement in SIG Interoperability, I am a contributor to CDF TOC.

In following sections, you will find the list of talks I’ve given, webinars, panels and interviews I’ve taken part of and articles and blog posts I contributed to.
