Brendan Thompson

I am a Principal Engineer at Azenix, a company that is part of the Mantel Group house of brands. Currently living in Melbourne, Australia.

In my professional life, I enjoy working on Microsoft Azure, writing Terraform infrastructure-as-code, contributing to open source projects, and I am an avid gopher. In my personal life, I enjoy doing everything I do in my professional life and watching TV, reading, rollerblading, and playing video games.

If you're interested in learning more about what I have done in my career, then check out my experience. Feel free to get in contact with me via email or Twitter.

I have also put together a list of the hardware and software that I use daily, and you can check that out here.
