I'm a senior DevOps Lead, software engineer, ops enthusiast, former manager, client advocate, fixer, and champion of best practices.

I've been a software engineer for 20+ years and a DevOps practitioner for 10 years. I've worked in research, consulting, web portal development, IT systems management development, cloud computing, hybrid cloud, deployment automation, and most recently, web platform development and operations.

My specialties are DevOps, continuous delivery, security, compliance, cloud computing, virtualization, configuration management, distributed systems, software engineering, agile development, continuous integration, shift-left, and test automation.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, scuba diving, travel, games, and having fun with my husband, two daughters, and the family dog.

A blue-green deployment is a fully automated version of the production mirror setup.

You still have a mirror of the production environment, but a blue-green deployment assumes that all of the deployment and testing is automated, so the tests either fail or pass within a few minutes, and the cut-over to the new environment is fully automated and very fast.
