Mike is a systems engineer with an eye for detail and a passion for unix and open source. Mike created `deprec - deployment recipes for capistrano` in 2006 to simplify server provisioning and deployment of Ruby on Rails applications. While very popular at the time, the mass migration to the Cloud called for different approaches and tools. In 2014 Mike created the bash-my-aws CLI tools to make managing resources in Amazon AWS a fluid and graceful experience. The project takes the unusual approach of using simple bash functions to provide the commands, while keeping them clean, short and readable. The past five years has seen collaboration with some key contributors that has make the project really, really cool.
