Patrik Uytterhoeven has over 16 years of experience in IT, mostly with HP UNIX and Red Hat Linux. In late 2012, he joined Open-Future, a leading open source integrator and the first Zabbix reseller and training partner in Belgium. When Patrik joined Open-Future, he also became a Zabbix certified trainer. Since then, he has provided training and public demonstrations around the world, from Belgium to America and Asia. His next step was to author a book, so the first Zabbix Cookbook was born. Because Patrik also has a deep interest in configuration management, he wrote some Ansible roles. Patrik was also a technical reviewer of Learning Ansible and Ansible Configuration Management, both published by Packt Publishing.
