About Me

After a couple of decades in the ISP, Web Hosting and Cloud Industry as a sysadmin / Infrastructure Coder, Mick Pollard just completed a 16 month engagement at the Australian Government’s Digital Transformation Agency to help build clearer, simpler, faster public services.

Mick’s focus at the DTA was on building cloud.gov.au, the next generation hosting platform that allowed digital transformation teams to operate safely at speed.

Mick co-founded Devops Sydney along with Lindsay Holmwood in Feb 2010 - a monthly meetup for ideas and knowledge sharing around helping development and operations work more efficiently together rather than in silos.

When not tapping at a keyboard Mick can be found chasing clouds in the Australian country.
