re: What's the most excited you've ever been about a new technology? VIEW POST


Sadly, I've been in tech – both professionally and as a hobbyist – for so long that, much of what people seem to see as "new" feels more like "oh... You're reimplementing/converging X, Y and Z decades-old technologies." So, hasn't really been a lot to be excited about beyond being afforded more opportunities to automate away more tasks. The personal ability and desire has generally been there. However, it's only as people have included "devops" in their buzzword-kit that people have understood why I always "wasted so much time writing scripts" and are now allocating me actual work-time to do that kind of thing (rather than having to sneak it).
