J. Bobby Lopez, DevOps Consultant


Welcome to my little corner of the Internet :)

Who are you?

I am a DevOps Consultant based in Toronto, Canada – specializing in the practice of DevOps, Private and Public Cloud Platform Development, Agile Team Building, Secure Software Delivery, Pipeline Orchestration, an IT Automation.

I am most passionate about Free and Open Source Software, Debian-based Linux distributions, and Productivity improvements via Automation.   I’ve had the good fortune to be able to turn that passion into my full-time career.  I’ve been working professionally in Enterprise IT  for over 20 years, and have had the opportunity to learn from and work with some amazing and brilliant people in the industry.  Professionally, I work for and am a proud member of The Sourced Group. – experts DevOps, CI/CD, and Enterprise Cloud Migration.

I have a range of experience in software and infrastructure design, implementation, and testing; along with configuration and release management, continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD), infrastructure automation, and compliance management. With a focus on DevOps practices,  I typically work with a mix of Linux, Unix and Open Source Software (such as Debian, RedHat, Ruby, Perl, Python, Ansible, Jenkins); along with commercial solutions (such as VMware, Oracle, Redhat, Solaris and Windows Servers).  My goals are always to build teams that can deliver high-quality systems and services for our customers, clients and peers.  I’m always eager to leverage the power of automation to increase productivity and I’m usually very adamant about adhering to clean, flexible, modular design practices.

Aside from my work in the IT industry, I’ve also spent a much time on self-study of various topics of interest, including philosophy, psychology, and science in general.  Most prominently has been my interest in the study of patterns and the scientific method.

You may also find me engaged in various discussions on Twitter or LinkedIn when the right topic strikes a nerve.

Enough about me :)  Tell me about you!  Who are you?  What brought you here? And what are you passionate about?  Thanks for visiting!
