Absolutely love listening to this podcast. Hany’s story telling is something out of this world. His ability to simplify tech concepts makes this podcast for anyone and everyone. Would highly recommend this. Also, the analogies are priceless. Keep it up!
Funny, good story telling and you also learn stuff!
A great podcast to learn about the dev ops space, even for a “non-tech” person! It is packed with operational specifics that anyone in the dev ops space should know and would in my opinion greatly benefit from. Hany’s abilities for story telling and his humor is just an added bonus! It’s amazing how much you can learn from his experiences.
