Kenny Deckers

Profile

Hi, I'm Kenny! At the age of 14 I started my coding journey by coding websites in HTML and PHP. I started out as a full stack web developer with focus on building websites and webshops. I've always been interested in managing the infrastructure and different technologies that glue all the pieces together, which is how I've grown towards a DevOps engineer role.

In the beginning of 2017 I launched my own company Implode - Digital Agency, which allows me to offer websites, webshops and all other kind of digital solutions to companies.

Besides working I'm a big fan of the outdoors. (Trail)running, cycling, hiking, traveling and attempting to improve my photography game are a few of the things I really enjoy doing.
