My sabbatical is over and today is my first day working at Weaveworks where I’m joining the Developer Experience team. I’m incredibly excited about this.
I got to know quite a few of my colleagues in the past weeks and they were without exception all incredibly likeable and smart people. The company believes in open source, is quite diverse and has an office in Berlin - also I’ll get to work with Cezzaine, Jonathan and Steve again.
Right from the start the technology really impressed me. Weave Cloud solves key problems many organisations and companies face today: being able to deploy services seamlessly, securely and easily and making monitoring and snapshots obvious and simple-to-use have an immediate impact on what you can do and what you spend your time on.
Here’s what it looks like in action:
If you’re on Google Cloud Platform, you can even use it for free or you can check out the tutorials to play around with it without having to install anything.
It’s going to be great to immerse myself and learn more about the underlying technologies and connect with the Cloud Native communities. It’s a big landscape with lots of activity and overlap, strong roots in the open source world and the passion to make modern workloads a more manageable problem.
At Weaveworks, I’ll be able to work on what I like best: talk to and work with devs, figure out what people need, look at docs and tools, connect people and make people’s lives easier.
One thing makes this experience even sweeter: I’ll get to reconnect with a lot of you folks! If you’re working in the space and I haven’t talked to you in a while, hit me up and let’s catch up soon again!
Alright, I need to start packing and off to the office for today… 🚲
