Best year at work yet!

  • I worked on a project (with a several members of my team) to migrate our apps onto Kubernetes cluster since the beginning of 2017. We’ve been using Kubernetes in production since.
  • Convince and guide other teams to follow our initiative to migrate to Kubernetes.
  • 💸 Significantly reduce our AWS bills with the use of spot instances / spot fleet while maintaining high availability of the system.
  • ✌️ Got a new job!! Employer gave a counter offer matching compensation but I decided it’s time to move on.

Overall, I’ve set a concrete infrastructure for my company to move forward. I believe my team can step up and continue working on current projects.

My one and only

Being a father is overwhelming but certainly a great experience. Sleep depreviation sucks but any bad feelings seems to disappear when those little tiny hands hold my face and give me quick kiss on the cheek.

More books

I will not force myself to finish the book I’m not enjoying or learning from. I did this rigorously last year just for the sake of finishing the books.

I also want to learn speed-read this year.

Average readers read at speeds of around 250 words per minute with a typical comprehension of 60%. Imagine if you can read at 500 wpm, you can read twice as many books. It’s truly an amazing skill to have.

Talks

I didn’t give any talks last year. I would love to do 1 or 2 this year. Let’s make it happen.

2018 is gonna be a great year!
