hey everyone, i'm kevin.
I started the journey 18 months ago; I first studied RoR in a coding bootcamp. Got a job at an airline company & learned Nodejs on the go to build Lambda functions for work. Right now i'm the devops lead for an e-commerce venture the under my company. Our stack primarily Magento 2, Angular 2 running on AWS.
In my free time i learn python for text sentiment analysis & the backend of an airline chatbot. Not pro-AWS but familiar; not anti-GCP either.
Who here are from airline companies? Say hi! :)
Not from an airline company, but that does make me think about what airline companies do with software more.
Also, you're killing it; 18 months later and you're a DevOps lead? Congrats dude!
Thanks man. It was a super bumpy ride with countless mistakes.
There's plenty of ways airlines seek to innovate from facial-recognition to speed up check-ins to buying flights and luggage via an AI assistant.
but to get to lead the devops my coding time had to take a hit. gotta spend less time looking at Cloudwatch dashboards!
I for one am looking forward to the day where we have instant check-ins on planes. Or luggage tracking! I've never had my luggage go missing but I imagine it must be a nightmare.
I don't think I'll ever stop wanting to code. I'm sure that'll change a bit in say, 18 months, but maybe not. Are you going to keep up with side projects or have you done a bit of coding as a DevOps lead?
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
