Hi, I'm Thorsten Klein and I currently work as what some people call a "DevOps-Engineer"...
Basically I'm combining (infrastructure) operations and software development to enable other devs to care for their application throughout the whole software development lifecycle. That means, that I provide and manage the infrastructure and tools, help them to use them in a self-service way and sometimes develop new tools. You can checkout some of my open-source contributions in the Projects section below.
Everything I share here is personal content, even though I might've created it at work. Opinions and work styles shown here are my own and not my employer's.
Note: This site is under construction... maybe you'll find more content here soon.
Here's an exerpt of the projects which I'm currently working on:
Easily run Rancher Lab's k3s (minimal Kubernetes distro) in docker containers.
Project supporting rancher/k3d.
Web-UI to monitor the status of Kubernetes Jobs with links to the Rancher UI.
Enable easy injection of sidecars (and other settings) into pods before starting them.
Here are some things I wrote about tech topics. It's not much, but maybe I'll find some time to add new articles/posts later :)
- An Engineering-Driven Approach -
 This is my bachelor thesis (PDF) which I wrote in trivago's web-performance team: All about Microservices.
- Moving to Microservices for Monitoring Content Delivery Networks -
 A post I wrote for the trivago techblog that gives a short overview over my journey at trivago and some details about what I did in my bachelor thesis.
