A read a few “a ha!” posts today that made me think. Check out a range of pieces below that cover everything from context-switching to better visibility into software dependencies.
[blog] Context-Switching vs. Multitasking: Postpone Clean Work vs. a Messy Mind. Read this short post. It’s a useful take on how to balance lots of tasks on your plate.
[blog] Is there still a place in this world for Architects? One of the better takes on “how to be a good architect” that you’ll read. If you’re an aspiring architect, or a stale one, get a reset from this post.
[article] The AI singularity is here. I absolutely have confirmation bias when I come across pieces like this, but it’s hard for me to NOT agree with everything here. I’m seeing the same.
[blog] TBM 212: A Problem vs. The Problem. Are you defining the right problem, or just labeling something as “THE problem” that’s not the actual root cause? Great read here.
[blog] Build a Modern Platform with Crossplane, Anthos and ArgoCD: The Future of Infrastructure Management. I’ve seen more of this stack come up for those who are running Kubernetes environments.
[blog] What developers need to know about generative AI. If you’re just watching all this LLM and generative AI stuff, that’s cool. Keep reading and learning, though. Good post from GitHub.
[article] Preview: Google Cloud Dataplex wows. I still haven’t played with this yet, but it seems powerful for data governance and organization purposes.
[blog] The Golden Path to Cloud Success. My friend James has a good post about platform engineering and end-to-end experiences.
[article] A Brief DevOps History: The Roots of Infrastructure as Code. DevOps became a thing, in part, because we finally had the ability to manage infrastructure fleets effectively at scale. Part of that is due to programmable infrastructure and new systems for provisioning and maintaining that infrastructure.
