Introducing John Simons

Hi, I'm John and I have joined the Octopus team in January 2017.

For the past 5 years I have been working remotely focused on distributed systems. I started gaining interest in Octopus when I came across Paul's blog posts on how Octopus works and all the benefits of working for Octopus.

About 3 years ago, I started using Octopus Deploy for deployments and it just worked, it was a niche product that solved a problem really really well. The kind of product that once it is installed and configured you can relax and leave it alone to do its thing, hands off. This is the kind of product I like, just do what I tell you and leave me alone.

A bit more about me, I live in the Sunshine Coast (about 1.5 hours drive to Brisbane) with my family, we have a small property with 2 acres, my weekends used to be occupied mowing grass, but now I have a ride-on mower so a lot more time to enjoy and relax.

I enjoy the outdoors and on the weekend we tend to go camping and four wheel (off road) driving at Teewah Beach.

I am super excited to be part of the Octopus family and can't wait to get more familiar with the code base and help out make this awesome product even more awesome!
