Peter McGowan has worked for Red Hat in the UK since 2012, both as a consulting architect, and more latterly in the Systems Engineering team, where he works with Red Hat’s Cloud Suite of products.
Peter started his IT career programming on PDP-11s, before weaving a trail through various Microsoft technologies, and into open source software. For much of this time he has specialised in enterprise systems management and automation.
When not programming Ruby he can be found trying to locate the best cappuccinos, and crate-digging for old records to play on his beloved Linn record player. He is step-dad to three wonderful grown-up children, Luke, Lucie and Imogen, and husband to the very lovely Sarah.
