While working at Droplet my main responsibility is to create a new, modern infrastructure that provides stability, security and speed (both for the end-user and the developers). To provide this we'll be working with containerisation technology such as Docker and systems that build on this (CoreOs for example).
I've written a series of technical posts about the various tech and environment tools that we now use and rough guides on how.
