For our latest StackPod episode, we invited Hyke’s DevOps team lead and AWS Cloud architect: Yousef Sedky. Axiom Telecom is one of the largest telephone retailers in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, and Hyke, its sister company, is a distribution platform for mobile products.
Yousef joined Hyke about 2.5 years ago. His first challenge was to build the architecture from scratch, which was a great experience for him. “All the logistics you don’t know about when you’re in a corporate company, you come to do it by yourself in a startup company,” says Yousef. Yousef and his team learned a lot about DevOps principles and how to incorporate them into their practice, like CI/CD, infrastructure as code, production control, security, centralized logging and monitoring.
