Troy Fontaine is a self-professed geek and technology addict who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
From a very early age he has displayed an aptitude for technology-starting with the disassembly and re-assembly of an alarm clock at age 3. Born and raised in Winnipeg, he has worked in a variety of roles but has always held a passion for understanding the devices and tools around him. Working with Mogo Finance Technology Inc since the summer of 2012, he has drastically developed his skill set and been lauded for his knack for troubleshooting and dedication by his team mates.
After having spent most of his career solely focused on Windows Clients and Servers, he is now working towards developing his skills and a working knowledge in the area of DevOps. Specifically using a farm of Raspberry Pi 2 Model B units to gain an understanding of Docker and common web server tools. While working on this, he is creating a series of tutorials to share via his blog-https://www.troyfontaine.com/geek/ to help others get up and running quickly with a variety of technologies as well as to share knowledge about a number of topics.
