Troy Mann has had an unusual trip around the block. He graduated with an engineering degree in a tough market, and ended up writing code. His career really took off with the private cloud known as SharePoint. However he found himself doing SharePoint and .NET by day, while working with open source mobile and big data applications by night. Troy transitioned from SharePoint to the Azure public cloud, and has worked on several projects using AWS and GCP as well. His knowledge of the Hadoop stack, ML, and DevOps rapidly placed him in a position to join IoT and Data Science projects. Today he works at an awesome job doing what he loves - DevOps oriented Data Engineering.
