For the last three years, I have been working at Pivotal across engineering and product management on the Cloud Foundry open source project, which is having a significant impact on enterprises wanting to transform how they deliver software to their customers. Recently I have taken on a new role in Pivotal's Labs division, working with our customers to help them re-platform and modernise their applications on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. My role requires me to understand a range of computing abstractions, from the hardware to the containerisation technology; the fundamentals I learned at Cornwall College are still valuable today.
