Boy, what a roller coaster! Shortly after opening a position for a Senior Devops engineer, we had a funding “event” and now the opening’s gone. What’s worse, I had to lay off one of my developers, right before before the end-of-year holidays. It was stressful for all involved.
We’re doing some interesting things with name relationships at work, and these present fun development challenges. I’m trying to spend as much time as possible in Emacs, because the less-fun work issues always occur when I’m not coding.
I upgraded our codebase to version 3 of Celery, just to get us off version 2. I’m still hankering to replace Celery, but it must have known it was living on borrowed time because it’s been behaving lately, so I’ve decided to fry some bigger fish. But the moment Celery starts acting up again…
I just turned 55. How the hell did that happen?!?
