Any bloopers in the past you would like to share?
I restarted one production server because of name similarities during an expansion project, there were two clusters with similar names, and one of them was carrying production traffic, I started working too early in the morning and was going to work on the non-production cluster but mistakenly connected to the production one and restarted a service, I realized it immediately and called my colleague to inform customer while I was monitoring, hopefully, traffic was not impacted because of the session failover.

Tell us any (weird) fun fact about you?
I am a curious person and when one topic is interesting and new to me, I google it immediately to learn more about it but sometimes people think I do this because I don’t believe what they say.
Why do you (want to) work for Techspire?
Techspire offers the possibility of working with different business environments and engaging in diverse projects to perfect my existing skills and develop new ones.
