About the Cooks

luke_on_the_balkony2Luke Martin Feldman (also known as Martin Linxfeld or Martin, The Cook) 

I am Cloud Evangelist, currently working as Cloud Solution Architect at Oracle, focused on Infrastructure as Code concept. Privately happy husband and father of 3 teenage kids, an extreme fan of board games. Also, jogger, on the run a few times a week, enjoying nearby forests with my dog.

Before I joined Oracle, I worked for Hewlett-Packard and many other smaller and bigger companies for the last 20 years. My journey has also included my own cloud-based startup which has been an honest lesson on how to fail. 🙂

My personal credo is to never give up and learn as quickly as it is possible. Let’s say without harm to my family. I really enjoy my work. Frankly speaking, I believe the Internet is the greatest place for sharing knowledge. Two years ago I have passed Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2018 Certified Architect Associate and recently I have updated my level to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2019 Certified Architect Professional. On the other hand I have passed also exam for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Developer 2020 Certified Associate. At this blog, I like to share my experiences with OCI, Terraform and Ansible and for sure other interesting news.

I am Kranthi Manchikanti working as a Cloud Solutions Engineer at Oracle and certified in hybrid cloud infrastructures like Oracle Cloud, GCP, Azure and Blockchain solutions with more than 5 years of industry experience in application design, management and development. I am a technology evangelist and spoke at conferences like RSA, MACC (Midwest Architecture Community Collaboration).

I run, play Racketball and write poetry. Solving business problems using technology is my passion and I wake up every day hoping to learn the same and make a difference by exploring solutions. We are in the exciting era of the cloud world and I use this blog to share such topics that could save time and energy.

I am a technologist, currently working as Director of Cloud Engineering at Cintra, where I spend most of my time designing and validating complex cloud architectures and writing code to automate deployments. A very happy husband and father of two kids used to be a serial board gamer, but now I spend most of my time with the kids and fiddling with electronics, mostly IoT devices to augment my home automation setup. I go rowing and snowboarding when I can (alas, never too often). Before joining Cintra I worked as a freelance consultant for a Bank, as CTO for a couple of small IT firms and for a not so small financial services startup (Zopa Italy). I am a fan of doing things ‘the right way’, and that often means I spend way more time planning and experimenting with the tooling before getting things ‘going’. The upside of it is that when I get things right the result is often spectacular in how fast things get moving once all the tools and pieces are in place. I am a Certified Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2019 Architect Professional, and an AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional. On this blog, my plans are to share experiences and opinions on DevOps patterns and tools.
