It’s back. Me. This website. My drive to write. The continued existence of my technological journey through a wide spectrum of challenging endeavours. It’s back and better than ever.

Moving forward, a few things will be different. First off, this is no longer my personal outlet for internal thoughts and happenings: instead, you’ll be able to find those elsewhere (more later). Second, future posts will touch on everything from Python semantics, CI/CD, microservices, hacky one-liners, and every real approach to challenges many will encounter through their career in computing (as I have). Through more focused articles which will more accurately cover the reasoning behind challenging decisions, I hope you’ll find content here that informs and inspires you, all the while making you better in the process.

It’s been quite a long time since my last post. However, I can overwhelmingly define my general technical direction during this period with one exceptionally prevalent word: Kubernetes. From using docker-compose in the early days, to playing with Shipyard and Rancher, jumping head-first into Kubernetes has been an exciting and rewarding experience. I’ve met tons of amazing people, been to multiple exciting conferences, done podcasts and other events all while working daily on a myriad of kubernetes clusters.

Hence, many of my upcoming articles will be about or adjacently related to Kubernetes and microservice architectures. However, I’ll also share my findings and realizations working with others at my DevOps focused meetup group, Orchestructure. Finally, I’ll try to cover other technically inclined people, projects, and groups who are furthering distributed computing concepts and modern architectural principles in exciting ways!

It’s going to be a very good year…
