Alex is a Data Platform MVP who loves DevOps.

He's has been helping data professionals apply DevOps principles to relational database development and deployment since 2010. He's most proud of helping Skyscanner develop the ability to deploy 95 times a day. Alex has worked with clients on every continent except Antarctica - so he's keen to meet anyone who researches penguins.

A keen community member, he helps organise Data Relay and he created speakingmentors.com. He blogs at workingwithdevs.com, speaks wherever they'll let him and manages the DLM Digest quarterly email: a report on the latest database DevOps news/tutorials. He was awarded his first MVP award in 2017.

He's quite fond of nutella. And otters. (Not together.)
