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 dad is overwhelming but certainly a great experience. Sleep depreviation surely 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!
