So after the previous post of getting exposed in an interview, one thing that the interviewers were talking about stood out to me. He had said that even though he thought he was a great developer, when he was exposed to the lead engineer, he didn’t feel like he was up to snuff, and didn’t think it was possible to even get to his level. This sort of thing kind of brought me to the realization that perhaps getting into an area that people already have years of experience and natural drive may not be the best route to “become the best”, per se.
I talked to one of my good friends from University, and he suggested that I try getting into DevOps, as it’s a relatively new, emerging field with lots of interesting technology. Not to mention, that it does have high demand and is necessary for a lot of larger projects down the road.
Oh well, another day, another swap! Run it back, always learning.
