I am a DevOps practitioner
with a strong background in
web application development.

Hello!

My name is Steven Rombauts. I am a Belgian software developer and DevOps practitioner currently living in Cambridge, UK. With my expertise I bring responsibility to every stage of a project development's cycle: from writing code to deployment and systems monitoring. Here's how I look at these different parts:

Dev

I start from the understanding that quality software cannot be created by writing code alone. The result of a developer’s work is not just code, it’s running software in production that has to solve real-life problems.

Ops

Development and operations are equal parts of the equation. A good developer closely follows the day-to-day operations of their software: You build it, you run it.

DevOps

Armed with the insights gained from running and monitoring software in production, I want to help build bridges between all departments and teams inside an organisation. This DevOps mindset is key to maintain the focus and prioritise the work according to business objectives.

Vision

I am passionate about open source, sharing and collaboration. I firmly believe that open technologies and increased transparency can make a better world.

Work

I currently work full-time as a consultant and spend most of my days working with the great people over at Timble, where I help to build and manage the back-ends of the Joomlatools and Wordplugs brands, work on the consultancy projects and develop a powerful suite of open source tools for Joomla developers.
