In my opinion, DevOps has more growth and income potential. I can't see automation testing skills getting much more complex, but I am also not experienced in testing so maybe I'm wrong. I just thing DevOps has more potential in the future.


Thank you for your suggestion 😊

How have your students changed this school year (compared to pre-pandemic)?

I’ve noticed that my students are EXTREMELY quiet this year. In almost every class you can hear a pin drop. I teach underclassmen high schoolers so I find it extremely odd. When I try to get them talking to me or even each other, I am met with quiet stares. I feel like they lost the ability to socialize with others and it’s the equivalent of having their cameras off but in person.

Can anyone else relate?

I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age but always worked through any issues I had by just trying harder. I recently started a new position that has to do large amounts of coding. I can’t seem to concentrate for the life of me but when I drink a Celsius energy drink it works like magic. I do not want to become dependent on energy drinks just to sit, focus and be interested in learning. Anyone have any experience with any natural supplements? I tried green machta tea but it doesn’t work for me

Hi! I am having a bit of trouble with some old pcs in our company. We have about 20 pcs running windows 10. They have not been used for a couple of years. Now we’re starting to use them again, but a small problem: the old admin has put a block on some few websites on the user profiles, and for the love of god, we can’t figure out how to remove that block. Any ideas?

It depends on the unit tests.

It depends on the dependencies.

It depends on the data.

It depends on the environment.

It depends on the service.

It depends on the config settings.

It depends on the build framework.

It depends on the network firewall.

It depends on the server.

It depends most of all on the team I emailed last week about a prod issue that I still don’t have an answer to.
