About Me

Maxime Cote

Hello, I’m Maxime Cote

Welcome to my little spot on the internet. Here I’ll try to draw from my job experience as a developer, sysadmin, and security mixed with a wide range of interests and research to bring you article to help get you more effective in those areas and your life in general.

But who am I?

I’m a trained developer in Java, C++, Python, and JavaScript, mainly in back-end development. From that point, I became a self-taught Linux and Kubernetes system administrator, mainly designing servers, VMs, containers, and everything in between.

I also recently started on the path to becoming SSCP certified in the hope of reaching CISSP from there.

If not apparent by this point, I’m very passionate about researching and learning new technologies. I love to try to make my work or life easier using those new technologies and teaching them to others.

Other than work, I’m also a big fan of music, productivity, writing, reading, and gaming, among other things. One of my main goals is to help others by sharing my experience or discussing exciting ideas. I will also try to explore the impact technology could have on our future (or not) and the trends I see coming in.

My blog is split between some more technical articles and some more general ones. To help navigate this, I tagged the technical one with “Technical” in their categories, which will appear above all titles. An excellent place to start for technical is here: What did I learn from having 3 jobs in a small company? and for more general here: How to prevent overwhelm with the five projects rules
