About me

My name is Daniel Heitmann and I’m a Site Reliability Engineer at trivago while also offering consulting services.

I’m moving YAML around and glueing various open source components together to form reliable systems at scale. I also occasionally contribute back to some of those projects.

I’ve also been hosting the DevOps & Infrastructure Meetup NRW in Düsseldorf for more than 5 years. Show up and say Hi! when you’re there!

Apart from the doing stuff with computers, I spend a lot of time with my amazing girlfriend and our beautiful cats. To stay fit, I’m either on a bicycle, practicing Wing Tsun Kung Fu or reading books (or something from my life-long Pocket backlog). If you want to see what I’m reading online, make sure to boomark this Twitter search.
