My name is Nikos Kormpakis and I’m from Greece, currently living in Athens. If you’re curious, my name in Greek is Νίκος Κορμπάκης.

My interests revolve around computing in general, especially infrastructure and complex systems. When not messing around with computers, you will find me shooting with my Nikon D7200, DJing with my Pioneer DDJ SB2, operating my U/V Amateur Radio transceivers as SV1QYH.

I currently work as a Systems Engineer at GRNET, Greece’s National Research and Educational Network. My team is involved with the design and operation of our large-scale infrastructure and services, including a public cloud (~okeanos), a number of mission-critical services (ESA Copernicus, Greek Blood Donor Registry, etc), and (lately), a number of public-facing services of the Public Sector.

I also maintain a LinkedIn profile with more details about my professional life, my previous jobs and more.

If you want to communicate with me, you can reach me at my personal email, nkorb (+b) (a t) (google’s)mail (ddott) com. I prefer plain text emails.
