    I’m grateful to everyone who in one or the other way, was with me, and helped me become the person, I’m today! All the just criticisms, the healthy criticisms, the directions, the mentorship, the care, the support I received from everyone & anyone, I’m simply grateful to every single one of them. I really mean it from the core of my heart. I know it helped me...

    Recently (last month, the 27th of july), I got a chance to speak at the GNOME Annual Conference, GUADEC’20.

  • [Python for DevOps] Pytest for DevOps!

    August 10, 2020

    August 10, 2020

    Ok, this time I made a jump from chapter 3, to directly chapter 8 in the book Python for DevOps, because I needed to learn about writing tests/unitests in python.

    When I say writing tests, I broadly mean writing validation steps, to check if everything is happening the intended way or not. And if not, then what kind of behaviour I’m receiving from my program, or infrastructure.

    So far, my journey around learning Python is on a nice track. And I’m trying my best to keep it up & going!

    So, moving forward in the book, “Python for DevOps”, yesterday I finished the third chapter, Working with the command line! And I must say, now it’s no longer “me learning python once again” (that was till some parts of the first chapter), rather it’s simply, me learning python! (all...

    August 03, 2020

    August 03, 2020

    I’ve sort of started learning Python programming from scratch once again (I won’t say I knew it well before as well, but it was more of an on-off thing that I learnt whenever required). So, I’m trying to bring my brain back to thinking in more real programming terms (here I mean writing actual code, not just the usual yaml, json or bash scripts that I keep writing all the time for...

    July 19, 2020

    July 19, 2020

    The Google’s Site Reliability Enginnering is the one of the books, that have been recommended or talked about by almost all the experienced DevOps, SRE, or cloud/infrastructure engineers, I ever got a chance to have a conversation.

    Even in some of my recent interviews, there were discussions around the book. So, I no longer need any more facts to convice myself that this book is certainly a must read not only...
