Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez
I don’t know the angle of the documentary trying to view from, but it is very sadden to see a person with all the goods happened to him and the bads just caught up in his life.
This documentary is streaming on Netflix.
How I Work (2020)
Using AmazonBasic laptop stand to raise up the laptop. A 22-inch monitor as the main monitor and roate another 22-inch monitor for easier to read documentation.
The first generation of Apple Keyboard and the second generation of the Apple magic trackpad.
I am using a 13-inch MacBook Pro with i5 and 8G ram. It’s powerful enough to do my work. The alternative machine is a Dell XPS 13. Ever since I got the mac, I only turn it on once a month or whenever work is necessary.
SublimeText is my go to text editor. I have my own theme that is 99% based on Dayle Rees’s Hub Light. I just “fixed” it with the syntax highlight problem.
I started using VS Code because AWS CDK works very well with it.
I used Nord Theme and swith to Zsh with Oh my zsh
I use Homestead. Docker is my alternative.
I use Muji’s Weekly notebook. They don’t sell online in the US. (Weird)
- Google Calendar
- Google Drive / Google Drive File Stream
Tech Stack - 2020 Edition
In the beginning, I was a BASIC “programmer” because I want to stop dying in Nibble.
I took a computer science in college, humble by alogrithm, math, and compile time with C++. While I was wondering if this is something I want to do, I took a web development class with
PHP. It is the moment that I discover web is something I want to do.
Two decades later, web development is not just
PHP anymore. It involves a lot more. Today, it appears to involve more for making a scalable web application.
Let’s take a look.
- Laravel (Dynamic App) <3
- Bootstrap (HTML)
- SASS (CSS)
- Linux (OS)
- Apache/Ngnix (Web server)
- MySQL/DynamnoDB (Database)
- AWS (CloudFormation, CDK, VPC, EC2, RDS)
- Docker (Automation)
- Virualbox/Hyper-V (Local development)
- Packer (AMI preparement)
- Test Driven Development
- YAML, JSON, CLI, etc.
One cannot just learn to code, it takes commitment for life long learning.
In 2020, I want to advance what I did in 2019.
Read 30 Books
In order to archive this, I am going to cut down reading news and social media. Limit myself to maximum 15 minutes for each of these for once a day. I will always bring a book with me during lunch time and weekend.
I want to continue to swim on weekday before going to work. I am blessed to have a pool literally on the way to work. This will require me to sleep around 9:30PM. I want to be able to do breaststroke and flip to turn. If I cannot get this done by September, I will get a coach.
I want to continue to get better with my skill on Machine Learning. I will work closely with DeepRacer and DeepComposer. I will get certified by AWS.
I will continue to improve my DevOps skill. I will use GitHub Action to deploy this blog and post an update to Twitter.
Write more. One post a month, no matter how shitty it is.
It has been a good year. I finished 19 books, deploy couple applications, more hands on project on DevOps, and contribute to the open source projects.
I started to learn work on Machine Learning. The project that I worked on still on its early stage. I hope that through my knowledge on Machine Learning, I can help out my community.
I went to Laravel and AWS conference, visit couple countries and went to couple different states. It is a blessing to have these opportunities to continue expanding my work knowledge and expand my horizon in the world that I live in.
I actually almost swim every morning on the weekday. My health is significantly much better.
I discovered the power of making a ToDo list and sticking with it. I, at least, felt that I am a lot of productive.
I felt that in 2019, I started to understand myself more. I am more on pace with my own rhythm and I am more content with my own limit.
Thank you, 2019.
