Weekly Journal #8 - All My Life
Even though I listen to the @foofighters every day in my earbuds while I work there isn’t anything quite like a live show with the roar of the crowd, the flashing lights, and really feeling the music blast through your body as you get to see your favorite band for the first time! Thank your for coming back to #boise after 22 years and putting on a show I’ll never forget. #foofighters #foofightersconcert
Well the highlight of my week was getting to see the Foo Fighters for the first time in concert. It was a nice surprise too since I found out I was going the day of when my Father-in-law surprised me with an extra ticket!
One of the major things I finished up this week was the Load Tester that I have been working on so we can test the performance of our new aws infastructure. It was pretty much done last week, but it was mostly just a bunch of random scripts that I hacked together just so I could get it all to work initiallly. So this week I cleaned it all up so that it had some structure and documented how it all worked and shared it with the rest of the team.
Side project Updates
I didn’t get a whole lot done on SkillSift this week. I guess some weeks are just better than others.
One of the podcast episodes that I listened to this week was Under The Radar - 108: Punch-List Mode. A great episode about finishing that remaining 10% of things on a project that seem to take another 90% of the time. It was kind of perfect timing for this episode as I was trying to polish up the Load Tester I was working on and getting it ready to “ship”.
