What I’ve Been Doing
Having had time to settle in to my new job, it’s become more apparent by the day that it was a good move. I have spent a lot of time enjoying the new set of challenges provided by my job, and being part of a robust code review culture does wonders for keeping you on your best behaviour. It also polishes your ego on the occasions where people don’t find much fault with your work, which I am striving to increase the frequency of.
What I’m Doing Now
I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to get a firmer grasp of AWS services beyond EC2. I’ve particularly enjoyed getting to grips with kubernetes, as my previous ops experience mostly extended to SSH and hope. I’m aiming to pursue some AWS certifications to show off the cool new stuff I’m picking up. Does that let me put letters after my name? It had better.
