Damian is a Principal Consultant for Innofactor; an evangelist, Blogger, Lecturer and Public Speaker; Husband and proud father of two beautiful girls.
My career has been extended, and enjoyable, with a finger in computers and toe in electronics. Over the years I have accepted many accolades, but my favourites have included been honoured to be recognised as a Microsoft MVP since 2011 under the disciplines of ‘Hyper-V’ and ‘Cloud and Datacenter’, while also been a Cisco Champion since 2014.
I am not the most prolific social media user, and freely admit a dislike to facebook (and feel very vindicated as a result of the ‘Cambridge Analytica’ revelations). I do a little tweeting under the alias @damian_flynn, and frequent Linked In regularly.
Over the last number of years, I have published some white papers and technical articles, a contributing author to Petri.com, hosting and participating in many webinars, and co-author of multiple Microsoft Cloud related books, and Official Courseware. However, my real passion is meeting and working with people, which I get to embrace as a regular presenter at many international and community events and conferences.
I am Currently focused on Cloud Technologies and the Hybrid Datacentre, Specialising in Azure Governance, and sustainable DevOps; Assisting organisations on Cloud optimised delivery of Legacy Apps and Microservices, leveraging containers and serverless when possible.
