Grant Steinfeld - Biography (October, 2020)

DevOps Architect, Cloud Engineer, primarily focusing on server-side technology, with a track record of building beautiful spaces for scalable systems, psychologically safe teamwork, and collaborative innovation. Superpower is as a tinkerer, with depth in scalable architecture and breadth in all things technology and frameworks. Strong agile software design and development skills focusing on languages: Python, PowerShell, C#, TypeScript and JavaScript. Happy as an individual contributor as well leading, managing and mentoring development teams.

With over two decades experience, focus has been on backend systems – middleware and Enterprise Integration Patterns and databases are a core passion. Early adopter and champion for Blockchain technologies, primarily permissioned private topologies. Administrator, advocate and SmartContract programmer in particular, Hyperledger Fabric Blockchain.

The idea of space is a very fundamental one for me. This is what draws me to carpentry, metalwork and landscape / gardening. This is also what draws me to how we organize the space for building systems architectures. Are our tools organized beautifully? I truly take pride in building developer productivity tools, even if they are command line programs, to be beautiful! Beautiful spaces are not just about the tools and things we can touch, it’s also about the space of our interactions, where constant curiosity, learning,mentoring and nurturing is an integral part of my value system.
