I haven’t been posting on this weblog for ages. Why? For a few reasons, mainly because I switched jobs from development to operations which has been taking a lot of my time. I consciously made this switch, since I reasoned that if I spent some time in operations I’d learn more about how delivered code behaves in production. So far, that has been paying off. This is not to say that I’m not programming anymore – I just write code from a different angle and with different goals. I hope to blog a bit more about the things that have kept me busy lately, such as troubleshooting, performance tuning, monitoring and programming in general (which still interests me the most). Hopefully I’ll find enough time to write new posts, elaborate on questions/comments etc. If not, you can safely assume that I’m busy keeping sloppy applications running in high traffic environments.
