  • Quality of Service for Pods #29

    August 03, 2021

    August 03, 2021

    While working on a side project yesterday, I was reading through the Pod manifests for some services. And one of the fields, I read there was qosClass: BestEffort.

  • Notes: online communication hygiene!

    July 24, 2021

    I started reading (actually, listening to) the book, Pragmatic Programmer in the morning, today. I have just finished the first chapter. I feel it’s a very “easy to consume” book (which is a very good thing for me).
