James Force is a Senior Consultant at Red Hat. After working in a handful of infrastructure engineering and consulting jobs, James joined Red Hat at the start of 2020. He takes a forward-looking and straight-talking attitude in his work and promotes modern working methodologies to build easily reproducible, reliable, secure, and scalable systems. He is an advocate of FOSS, DevOps, and Ken Thompson's Unix philosophy and sees himself as a problem solver rather than an expert in a specific technology. When he's not leading customer engagements James can be found cafe-hopping, playing music, or traveling.
