I’m Mike Pfeiffer, an independent technical consultant, author, trainer and conference speaker with nearly 20 years of experience in the tech industry. After spending many years as an enterprise consultant, I went to work for Microsoft supporting some of their biggest enterprise customers. Later, I joined Amazon Web Services (AWS) where I spent most of my time speaking at live events, writing code to build fully automated solutions, and helping customers and partners architect solutions in the cloud.

Consulting, Teaching, and Speaking

Today I am self-employed and work mostly on select consulting engagements focused on Microsoft Azure, AWS, DevOps, and automation. When I’m not working with customers I’m usually teaching training classes or speaking at industry conferences. In addition to live classes and events, I spend a lot of time authoring on-demand video training courses with Pluralsight.


I’ve written for several publications over the years and I’m currently a contributor for TechTarget. In addition to writing white papers and contributing to tech sites, I’ve published a few books focused on shell scripting and automation. Check out my Amazon author profile for a complete list of my books.
