When I was tagged on Twitter about @ioshints (Ivan Pepelnjak (CCIE#1354 Emeritus)) latest blog post I thought somebody was telling me I should read the latest blog
I flagged this as “Hey what a coincidence I was just writing about #chatbots with Discord – I gotta read this later”
Why this is so special to me is that I started my automation journey with an ipSpace.net subscription which was a very key part of my early success with Ansible and Cloud automation specifically. Ivan has also personally helped me write better code and taken a personal interest in my success.
I am so incredibly humbled and thankful for Ivan’s recognition but even more by his commitment to be honest and open with his vast knowledge.
In a lot of ways I am trying to emulate Ivan’s approach and appreciate having a virtual mentor of such quality and capability.
