Hey everyone! Need someone to speak at your meetup/conference? I'm available to speak about a plethora of things: Python, Terraform, Technical Writing/Documentation, etc.. Feel free to DM me or comment with your CFP or just to start a convo. Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

It's a tragedy when the burnout and the inevitable declining well-being of ICs and line managers can only bubble up so far before it's met and ultimately overridden by organizational pressure to perform and deliver.

Multi-cloud is chaos magic. It tries to create stability from combining disharmonious things. Sure, maybe you’ll gain some stability if the circumstances are perfect. But chances are good it will blow up in unpredictable ways.

Happy Birthday to my first console. It will always have a special place in my heart.
Small, cute and sporting a built-in handle – the Nintendo GameCube debuted in Japan 20 years ago today alongside the spooky yet comical adventure, Luigi’s Mansion! What are some of your favourite memories with both?

Seriously, I blame @eddiezane and his Kubecon talk about home automation and K8s. If you too have to much disposable income and not enough automation, check it out. It’ll ruin your credit score 🀣 (Seriously, it’s a great talk) piped.kavin.rocks/icyTnoonRqI

Hot take: If your microservice architecture requires a majority of all the other microservices to run, you don't have a microservice. You have a distributed monolith.

So when I was in college I would easily get lost in lectures, got bored and zone out. I never really knew why but I'm curious if they were just too slow. I've started watching my Online graduate course videos at 1.5 - 2x speed and I'm totally engaged. I'm curious as to why...
