Since NickyTOnline suggested I dig into rust I’ve started gathering all of these links. This page is a single place to keep the references I want to go through or those I’ve found most useful. It’s not meant to encompass everything, just what I like. It will be updated from time to time. 29 Aug 2022
I recently found myself with 100 resumes to sort through over the course of 2 afternoons. I was a bit surprised by what I found and discovered that I have some opinions on the topic. In most cases these are contrary to what you will be told by a recruiter.
In my exploration of tools for data engineering and analytics I stumbled on the Cloudera Quickstart Docker Image. It appears to be a one stop shop for getting a full data environment running on your laptop - single node. It’s not suitable for processing serious data but you can use it for learning or demoing. Only problem is it is a little older and no longer supported. What a shame.
I still remember my wife crying on the way home from the airport after she picked me up. It wasn’t a singular event. She was pregnant. And we already had 2 children under the age of 5.
About how 5 months ago I went through a screening for a job. It was a referral from a friend and it had been a while since I responded to a recruiter. I was surprised how the process has changed in the past 5 years.
Over the past few months I’ve lost 38lbs fat and muscle. My thirst has been insatiable - at least a gallon of water per day. Plus anything else I can get my hands on. Juice, pop, milk. I eat anything I want as much as I can. And I sleep all the time. I’ve slept through the whole winter (or been sick in bed).
