My personal list that I’m sure will help others
In my last blog post, I mentioned how we programmers have the “CREATIVITY PHASE” during quarantine. The phase where we are most likely to sit and learn new tech, acquire some new skills and be more “equipped”, and have a variety of “ammo” at our disposal!
While those creativity phases might not happen as often as we’d like them to, utilizing one in the best possible way to ensure that it helps us most in the long term should be the goal to have in mind.
Because, little productive time >>>>>>> no creativity time!
Let’s jump right in!
What’s a skill you must take up now, if you haven’t have those already!
Containerize them apps! With Docker, developers can focus on writing code without worrying about the system on which their code will run. Applications become truly portable. You can repeatably run your application on any other machine running Docker with confidence. If you don’t know how to dockerize them apps, this is the time!
We as developers should be more integrated in the design process, so we all can fell comfortable with the outcome. With that being said, if the developer feels comfortable with the design, then it will be easier building it from the ground up. And it’s time to ask ourselves, is our CSS really at the level we want?
Kubernetes is an orchestration tool for Docker. So, clearly, originally we started by using Docker and later on discovered the advantages that Kubernetes offered.
Kubernetes offers a wide range of advantages: first, it poses high scalability, easier container management and helps to reduce the delay in communication, another issue which maybe be connected with Docker.
4. Be Cloud Ready
If you asked me how to benefit from adopting cloud services, my first question would be, “Which services?” Every user and every organization is going to get a different set of benefits. The most important thing I can suggest is to think across the spectrum. Evaluate the potential savings, but also think about the soft benefits: improved productivity, more speed and lowered risk.
Whatever the case might be, a cloud ready developer is a boon for any organization!
Perhaps, this is the part of “breaking (dancing)” we developers understand least. If there was ever a good time to learn how to dance, it is now!
Happy Quarantining! Stay home! Stay safe 🙂
Written with love,
