CHRIS SHALLIKER

AUTOMATION / DEVOPS / CLOUD

I am an honest, hard-working and enthusiastic professional who brings a positive attitude to the workplace along with more than 17 years of technical support experience for medium to large businesses. This has given me considerable knowledge in all areas of hardware and software which enables me to take a systematic and logical approach to problem solving.

In a technical environment, I am able to quickly learn and adapt to new software and technologies therefore giving me the ability to support/repair something I have only recently encountered. I enjoy working as part of a team or on an individual basis using my own initiative to achieve any tasks and objectives. I am passionate about I.T. and hope to further my knowledge and experience in all aspects of this field.

NOTABLE PROJECTS

ESXi HOST DEPLOYMENT AUTOMATION

I automated the deployment of ESXi hosts into vCenter using PowerShell scripting and Gitlab as the CI/CD pipeline tool. All the client needed to do was plug the blank host into the network via DHCP and the automation would do the rest. The end result was the host appearing in the appropriate cluster in vCenter with ESXi installed and configured.
