About Me

Welcome to KendrickColeman.com! Over the past 7 years, this blog has been dedicated to IT infrastructure, namely virtualization and the evolution of the cloud with VMware. The only real constant is change, so has my focus. I'm very fortunate that I have a storied past with VMware technologies, but it has led me to learning about the other side of IT, development. I've learned frameworks such as Ruby on Rails and Node.js + Express.js + MongoDB, all my projects fit into Docker containers, and GitHub is my friend. I try to bring all of these worlds together in a way to share my experiences. I use this blog for publishing solutions to uncommon problems I find in my day to day duties. If I happen to resolve a problem that google can't find, you can expect me to write a blog post about it.

 

About Me: I'm Kenny Coleman (Kendrick is my full name), and live in Louisville, KY. I started my career off as a windows system engineer after graduating from the University of Kentucky, which lead me wanting to get back into networking (I attended Trinity High School in Louisville,KY that had one of the inaugural CCNA courses for high school students) and landed me my first certification, CCNA. As a Cisco and systems engineer, it lead me into my new passion of virtualization. I've been honored by VMware with the vExpert award for my contributions to the VMware community and being a virtualization evangelist. Times change, and so do focuses, so I have been engaged in software development with technologies such as Ruby, Rails, Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Redis, Python, RabbitMQ, Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos, and much more. I have a broad range of experience with many different technologies. I believe that's what has made me so successful this far into my career. I love diving into new technologies, trying to be a bourbon connoisseur, cheering on #BBN, hanging out with my beautiful wife and daughter, and being around friends.

 

Bio: Kendrick Coleman is a reformed sysadmin/virtualization ninja/cloud junkie turned coder and awaits for an idea to spawn to tackle it with Ruby or Javascript. In his daily role a developer advocate for EMC Code, he works with a team to focus and publish all things open source.
