My name is Dmitry Figol and I am based in Poland. Currently I work at AWS Professional Services as a Cloud Infrastructure Architect where I help customers from different verticals build their infrastructure on AWS securely at scale and achieve desired business outcomes such as faster deployment of applications with enhanced security, decreasing operational costs, enabling new capabilities.

I like to lead design discussions with a number of stakeholders across different teams as well as lead implementation efforts of the team. I enjoy knowledge sharing, mentoring and enabling others.

At a previous job I was designing and implementing network automation systems.

My main expertise is AWS cloud, IaC, Python (12+ years) and network automation (5+ years).

I hold Cisco DevNet Expert, CCIE Enterprise Infrastructure, AWS Solutions Architect Associate, Developer Associate and Network Specialty certifications. I was one of the few people who built DevNet Expert lab exam.

I used to do live streaming about network programmability, automation and programming in Python on Twitch but I stopped. Some recordings can be found on my older YouTube channel.
However, in 2024 I started producing content about AWS Networking on my new YouTube channel

I used to host Network Automation Hangout — casual podcast about network automation with the community. But we no longer record new episodes.

I have Bachelor of Science (BS) in Telecommunications. I have also taken Master courses in Cologne University of Applied Sciences and Georgia Tech Online Master of Science in Computer Science program (OMSCS).
