About Stewart

When not working with clients, Stewart’s time is generally spent running public training courses or helping to shape security and compliance practices at DevOpsGroup.

Joining DevOpsGroup in June of 2017 as an Engineer, Stew helped to transform and modernise software delivery for one of the company’s key enterprise clients. It was during this time that he re-discovered his love of training people (and whiteboards!) and the transition from engineering to technical consultancy seemed only logical.

Since then, Stew has helped many organisations to identify and remove the problems in their software delivery and operations practices by automating toil, reducing waste and improving the quality and predictability of software development. He has also helped to

create and deliver public training courses for the DevOpsGroup Academy – including the coveted “BCS Foundation Certificate in DevOps” – as well as ensuring DevOpsGroup remain vigilant and aware of cyber security threats by shaping policy and implementing security systems.

Stew has over 15 years of experience in IT, in a variety of roles. He has worked in the public and private sectors and has been an advocate of Agile and DevOps working practices for almost a decade. Stew considers himself something of an expert in IT operations – both traditional and modern – and has a passion for improving the lives and careers if IT workers everywhere.
