I went ahead and bought a 2010 Macbook Pro when I was getting ready to start my bootcamp around this time last year. Since I started working at AWS, I’ve only been using my 2019 Macbook Pro that I got for work. I decided it was time to go ahead and boot up my oldie, and I’m glad I did!
I have a lot of good learning materials on this computer, and I have all of my old code on here. It’s funny how just being back on this old laptop makes me feel a little bit like I’ve arrived home even though I spend 9 hours a day on a laptop. I’ve been debating on whether I should get a new Macbook Pro to use outside of work, but after booting this old thing back up I think I’ll just use this one until it dies.
I’ve decided to study up on DevOps in my free time as well. Speaking of free time – now that I’m taking lunches at work I don’t feel completely drained when I do have free time which is quite nice! I can seriously tell a difference in what that one hour is doing for me, and I really like it. Thank you all for being a part of my commitment!
Back to DevOps… it seems like there is so much to learn about DevOps. With my new experience with AWS, I’m wondering if DevOps style roles are something that I should be looking into! It never hurts to learn more about anything in tech, so I’m going to enjoy learning a few new things while I explore DevOps concepts.
Survey : To tweet or not to tweet? I have a solid dislike for all things social media, but I’m wondering if Twitter would be good for me. I’m out in Portland without a developer / friend network, and I’ve been considering it.
