In the last month or so I have not seen any questions to you, so I’ve decided to drop you a line. 🙂 I like your idea of spreading knowledge to the people around you – I’m referring mostly to the colleagues, when I say people.
So here comes the question: have you ever been in a situation, where you wanted to share knowledge, but the people around you show no interest – either because of seniority or age difference, and they just do the things in ‘their way’?
What did/would you do?
Yeah, that’s a tough one.
Looks like DevOps Camp will be happening in July this year, and you can get all the details you might need, as well as sign up.
You might be wondering what Camp is all about.
Speedometers are fascinating devices. At least, the old mechanical ones used to be.
I’ve recently had a few folks ask something along the lines of, “how do you care for yourself, personally, and deal with the stress from work?”
It’s actually kind of a simple answer, but it comes in a few parts.
I love writing. It relaxes me, I can do it from anywhere, and it’s fun. Since 2001, I’ve written technology books – literally dozens of them – and thoroughly enjoyed doing so. But I’ve always wanted to branch out and tell stories.
Carpe diem, right? Why wait? I mean, worse case I suck at it, right?
We live in a world where new tech is bring introduced all the time. How do you tell which ones are right for you to spend time learning about, adopting, and using? Here’s a simple list, and new tech pretty much has to check off 3 or more of these in order to have a shot at staying with us.
I get a ton of questions from folks related to “career navigation.” That is, how do you “set yourself up” for whatever’s next in your career, and how do you even decide what that is?
Let me start with this:
Almost all modern languages rely on word order to convey meaning. Were I to say, “the ball fell,” you’d know what I meant. I’m talking about a ball, and something it did, which was to fall. If I said, “the fell ball,” I’d be conveying an entirely different meaning, that of a ball which is vicious and cruel, turning “fell” from a verb into an adjective simply by placement. But this word order situation hasn’t always been the norm.
Concrete. Yeah, concrete.
I know you love Disney Parks – how come?
I love concise questions! (use the “HMU” link at the top of this page to send yours.)
