I'm back!

Sorry I've been silent for so long. I recently accepted a new job at Workday as a Software Development Engineer III! This is an exciting new role for me and I'll be working with tech like #Akka, #Kafka, and #K8s, all using #Scala. I took a few weeks off writing for DEV in order to study for my new position!

Workday builds Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software (payroll, employee scheduling, etc.), and has been moving from a monolith to microservices over the past few years. Accordingly, I have a lot to learn about Docker, Kubernetes, asynchronous programming, and more.

I know I've mainly written about Java on here in the past, but I'll likely focus on Scala in the future. Thanks for sticking with me!

Congratulations, Andrew! It's perfectly okay to take the break when there's something important that needs to take care of.

Best of luck on your new job!
