Adé mochtar

Co-Founder and CTO

Adé is Co-Founder and CTO of Instruqt. Before starting Instruqt, he was an engineer and consultant in Cloud and DevOps-related topics. A big part of that job was to educate organizations on how to adopt new technology.

With Instruqt, he tries to achieve the same but on a larger scale. His mission is to make learning DevOps and Cloud more effective and fun. Adé mainly focuses on back-end and infrastructure engineering using Terraform, Go, and (probably too much) Bash.
