Author of the Apress book
Getting Started with Grafana, Ronald McCollam is a "geek of all trades"
with experience ranging from full stack development to IT operations to
management and sales. He has a strong background in open source software,
starting when a stack of 3.5" Slackware floppies was the easy way to
install Linux. He's managed IT operations in datacenters from back when the
"cloud" was new and scary, built and run an OS certification program for
hardware running Linux, and spent entirely too long thinking about
observability. He's also a Certified Irish Whisky Taster.
When not on the road, Ronald resides on his back porch in Somerville, MA with a frosty beverage in hand.
