Om författaren (2018)

Philip Jönsson

Philip Jönsson was born in Malmö City, Sweden 1988 where he still lives with his family. He gained an interest in technology at an early age. When he was eight years old the family got a home PC, which was the first step in his career.

Since Philip had a big interest in technology, choosing his education was easy. His IT studies started at The Nordic Technical Institute (NTI) where he studied the basics of computer technology and eventually focused on network. Later on he studied IT-security at Academedia Masters.

Philip’s first job in the IT business was at a home electronics company in Sweden. He worked at the IT department and was responsible for managing and troubleshooting the sales equipment in the stores and managing the IT infrastructure within the organisation. This is where Philip first encountered a BIG-IP controller.

Philip eventually started working in a Technical Assistance Center (TAC) department at an IT security company. Now Philip works as a consultant focused on F5 products in a department at one of the largest IT security company in Europe and handles major projects and solves problems for Sweden's most well-known companies.
