HI there 👋

I'm Nir Adler, a developer, maker, and open-source enthusiast with a passion for creating and contributing to projects that make a difference.

I currently work at Palo Alto Networks, where I am part of the CCS Scale Team. My responsibilities include designing high-scale and secure infrastructure on AWS, maintaining security and compliance in the cloud, and developing high-scale REST APIs using TypeScript. Additionally, I have experience with SQL/NoSQL databases, open-source development, and DevOps tools. I am a security champion in my team, and I am always working to improve the security posture of the company and help my colleagues with best practices and guidelines.

I have a strong background in open-source development and have been actively contributing to various open-source projects over the years, I am always happy to share my knowledge with others.

I am highly motivated and dedicated to driving projects forward, always eager to learn new technologies, and I deeply care about the products I deliver and maintain.
