Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty Eight

[And Then I Jumped Out Of The Airplane]

Not literally.

But OMG OMG OMG figuratively.

But first the news:

Last night I was having trouble falling asleep, stressed about today. My plan was to do my normal morning routine at work and do the live streaming today from one to three.

But.

As I was keeping my partner awake with mutterings, he suggested I do it as soon as I arrive at work. Immediately. No procrastination.

So I did.

While I received some AMAZING (saved, bookmarked, noted) ideas for projects around rainleander.github.io, I went with a published status of The Farmer Project and the supporting three projects Wake Up Beauty It’s Time to Beast [Health], Other People’s Computers [Technical], and Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick [Leadership] projects.

But first the news:

Tonight I finished the preliminary project design documents for all four documents as well as a preliminary review and uploaded it all to rainleander.github.io.

And.

Well.

I’m ludicrously #SQUEEE about the next year.

Actually SIXTEEN MONTHS.

SQUEEE!! !

I am joining not one but TWO events next week because I MUST DO ALL THE THINGS!

But first the news:

I also should probably STOP doing two events in a single week as it means on Tuesday night when I’ve done the second thing I’m going to super CRASH.

And have really wonky dreams.

But I LOVE LOVE LOVE these two events SO MUCH!! !

Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Nineteen

[Why Did The Farmer Receive An Award?]

Because they were out standing in their field.

But first the news:

I’m working with a Life Coach to be more proactive, rather than reactive, to my career. I love what I do, but until now, have been following the guidance of the department / company / project to form my path rather than taking a step back and considering my opinions / needs / desires.

While it’s worked out mostly fine – it’s time to take the wheel and not only drive, but consider where I’ve been and where I want to go.

Chart a course and follow it.

Mostly.

I realise that anything can happen along the way to shift, delay, or completely derail one’s goals but I haven’t actually done anything like this before.

Wait, that’s not true.

Dutch Lock Down Day Ninety Five

[See You Next Year!]

StackConf Online was the sixteenth through today. StackConf is about open source infrastructure in the spectrum of continuous integration, container, hybrid and cloud solutions. Bridging the gap between development, testing and operations is one of the fundamental paradigms in modern IT. StackConf covers this concept from multiple perspectives.

But first the news:

Due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), the conference organizers decided to turn stackconf 2020 into an online conference. All talks were presented in a single track over the course of three days from June 16 – 18, 2020. 

“How IT experts run their applications and infrastructure in production has a big influence on how they design and build their technology stack. At stackconf you learn how.

Well-known international open source experts present their ideas within our three-day online lecture program. Expect an intensive exchange of experience and inspiring encounters in the live chat with the speakers!

Trendsetting concepts, state-of-the-art technical expertise, top-level discussions and new perspectives in dealing with large infrastructures have shaped the event, formerly known as OSDC, since 2009.

As one of the leading open source infrastructure events in Europe the conference attracts more than 150 visitors per year – and we are very excited to see how many will join us online!”
