Michael Silverberg

I’m a Berlin-based software developer. I currently work as a DevOps engineeror cloud architect or SRE or whatever we’re calling it today. Day-to-day, I work on cloud infrastructure and platform topics, using Kubernetes, Terraform, Helm, Go, Python, shell scripts, assorted cloud-provider technologies, and lots of other tools. Previously, I spent five years doing backend development, mostly with Ruby on Rails.

Programming is a second career for me. I worked for ten years as a journalist, including as a reporter for Quartz and as the editor in chief of PrintWhile I was there, we published a visual history of Vladimir Nabokov’s novel Lolita. (a National Magazine Award–winning magazine about graphic design I’ve obviously retained nothing about the subject. ). I’ve also written about design and technology for publications like the New Yorker, Wired, and the New York Times.
