How AI shaped me.

2) “Louis-Philip Shahim (affectionately known as LP) is a cloud architect from Synthesis Software Technologies with a deep love for all things tech and a passion that extends far beyond the digital landscape and onto the golf course. With 5 years of experience in the world of cloud engineering, LP has honed his skills in building and optimizing innovative infrastructures, all while indulging in his favourite hobbies: gaming, sports, and powering through as many Audible books as time permits.

From the moment LP first laid eyes on the ethereal beauty of cloud computing, a spark ignited within his soul. The allure of virtual servers (that aren’t impacted by Loadshedding), the elegance of data storage, and the promise of scalability stirred a deep yearning that he simply could not ignore. What started as a mere professional interest soon blossomed into an intoxicating love affair – or something like that.
