Michael Duffy

Michael Duffy is a technology consultant who spends far too much of his time getting excited about automation tools. Michael lives in a tiny village in Suffolk and when he isn't reading, writing, or playing with automation and infrastructure tools, he can be found spending as much time as he can with his family. He runs his own consultancy, Stunt Hamster Ltd, and spends a lot of time telling clients that DevOps is an approach rather than a job title. Stunt Hamster Ltd. has provided services to clients as large as Telefonica O2 and BskyB and is currently working on software to ease the pain of managing decentralized platforms. Michael has previously written Puppet Reporting and Monitoring, published by Packt Publishing.
