👋 Hey, nice to meet you

Yet another newsletter, you may wonder? Yes. Are you transitioning from Dev to Ops to DevOps, trying to learn the value in metrics and app instrumentation? Are you interested in solving engineering and Ops challenges and thinking about day-2-ops? Welcome to my story, you are invited to learn together :)

I started as a backend developer, joined an OSS monitoring project, learned how the software was used in Ops and learned to love the performance insights and tools to become a better developer. Since then, I see myself as the Ops in Dev, or a developer turned ops, with all mistakes on the way, now learning Kubernetes and cloud-native microservices and struggling with code instrumentation myself. It's been an exciting learning story in the past 20 years.
