At the end of the year it’s now become somewhat of a tradition that I partake in the whole year in summary thing. I do find it interesting to read these posts, and I like doing my own since it’s a good way to reflect.
After a year of how-to type blog posts it feels odd, yet fun to be back talking in first person again. Today we’ll cover quite a lot of (varied) ground in a way I wouldn’t typically be comfortable with. But I’m hoping the informality works out. The following are some of the key things I learned in 2019 that I’ll go into more detail on very soon:
- Serverless technologies require a lot of knowledge, skill and patience
- Terraform is an amazing technology (and why)
- Single event logging is an amazing monitoring method (and why)
- Motivation for blogging is difficult (and how I regained mine)
- Why I changed the way I run my newsletter (yet it’s still hard)
It seems it’s going to be a pretty detailed post so let’s get to it…
