About me

My name is Jurgen Allewijn and this is my personal blog about mostly cloud and it related topics. I work as a cloud consultant at Cegeka. I have more then 20+ years of experience in IT. In this period my focus shifted from Novell to Windows NT4/Active directory to VMware to cloud and cloud native. I always have working at the infratructure/ops side of IT. For more information about my job history please visit my Linkedin profile.

I like to share knowledge regarding IT-related topics. One way of sharing is this blog. Most of my posts will be around a virtualization, (public & private & hybrid) cloud solutions and the cloud native landscape as these topics have my interest and also are the topics which I come accross during my job. Next to blogging I’m also one of the founders of the meetup group Cloudgurus. I also give workshops about and training cloud native related topics, like Docker Fundamentals, to customers and colleagues.

I’m a father of two sons. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and on my hobbies. Next to my IT and playing mmo’s like World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic, I really enjoy archery. I’m member of archery club HBSV Brederode. I’m a traditional archer which means that shoot with a wooden bow and wooden arrows. From the different ways of archery I like 3d archery the most. For more information about 3d archery visit the HBSV Brederode site. I’m also a member of the Dutch Warbow Society. Every Sunday we shoot at the Ruine of Teylingen.
