About the Author
Dave Swersky is a DevOps and enterprise architect with over 20 years of IT experience.
Currently, Dave works as a solutions architect for the US Department of Agriculture, where he offers DevOps strategy consulting—including cloud and CI/CD development—enterprise architecture strategy, and application architecture and support.
Dave's first job in computing was building PCs for a retailer—back when the 486 was state of the art. He then had an opportunity to work at Microsoft Product Support, where he began to dabble in programming. (Access will always have a special place in his heart.)
He developed applications using VB for Applications, VB6, and VB.NET, in systems ranging across asset management, ERP, and web portal. He made his transition to C# while working on a content management platform and never looked back. Then, after more than ten years writing software on the .NET platform, he transitioned to enterprise architecture. His focus and passion is now DevOps and continuous delivery.
