Mihail Fedorov


Hi there! I'm Mihail Fedorov, but you can call me Kolo. I've been a DevOps engineer for over 20 years, and I hold a bachelor's degree in Computer Science. My professional journey has been diverse, covering roles from security specialist to network administrator. Although I've stepped back from full-stack development, I'm still deeply passionate about technology—especially when it comes to automating software development, tinkering with IoT devices, and crafting intricate hybrid networks.

I'm currently heading up developer operations and infrastructure development at SmartFi.com. When I'm not immersed in work, I love diving into the world of cryptocurrency and imagining ways technology can make our work easier.
