Were you always interested in technology? What sparked your interest towards it?

I wanted a career that is never-ending with learning possibilities and very challenging. DevOps is exactly that.
What was the first programming language that caught your interest?
How did you discover DevOps?
I didn’t, it discovered me by chance when an opening for an internship was up and I went all in.
What is the most memorable solution you have come up with as a DevOps engineer?
I did a complete reverse engineering on a legacy code with Terraform and I managed to propose a refactored code with a new solution which even non-DevOps people will understand. The solution worked on the first run, without the possibility to test it even locally, because of access issues.
