Johan SiebensRelease Engineer ToThePoint
Johan Siebens is an Evolutionary Cloud Architect at ToThePoint, where he runs the release engineering competence center. Ever since his original role as a consultant Java developer on various projects, he was always the first to volunteer on "pain-in-the-ass" assignments such as configuring build servers, designing pipelines, and continuously delivering his viewpoint: "releasing should be as painless as pressing a button." He has found his "ikigai," which in layman’s terms means: find what you are good at, what the world needs, what you are able to get paid for, and what you love doing — in short, how to make your hobby your job. In so doing, he evangelizes the DevOps culture and, as his involvement in the cloud environment grew, so did his expertise.
