So, tell us about a day in the life …
Quite literally, this was my day on 13/07/2022.
6:30 am: My alarm starts ringing. I hit the snooze button a few times before grabbing my phone to check my social media, then read for 20 minutes before getting up.
7:00 am: I go for a 40-minute run along the Brisbane River and the Botanical Gardens.
8:00 am: Get back home, have a shower, pack my lunch, get ready for work then scoot into our office. Although it is not required, I am an office person and prefer to come into the office most days. Part of the reason is that we’re fortunate with a waterfront office with awesome view of the Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point ... Also, I love my morning commute and the ultra-wide screens in the office.
9:10 am: I continue with my development task from yesterday. We implement new health check endpoints for clients’ APIs, allowing them to perform ‘auto-heal’ when a service becomes unhealthy. After multiple failed deployments and testings, I finally have it working. I update the deployment template and commit my change to the code repository.
11:30 am: I have a stand-up with my team. Depending on the day, I might join multiple client stand-ups. The Managed Services nature enables me to be on various projects simultaneously, and all of them are at the post-go-live stage. Working in the production stage allows me to see the impact of my work clearly and more frequently.
12:00 noon: I go out the have lunch at Brisbane’s Walter Steakhouse and Wine Bar with 20 Core Business Operation colleagues as we celebrate our recent FY22 promotions.
2:00 pm: I have a meeting with two other team members for a knowledge-transfer session on the change I made in the morning. I receive their feedback and reviews.
3:00 pm: I work on a deployment plan so we can get approval from the client before we start the production deployment pipeline.
5:00 pm: I play a few board games, and Nintendo Switch with my team while having some sliders from Grill’d.
7:00 pm: Walk home and watch Stranger Things (season 4 finale!).
9:00 pm: I go for a short walk around New Farm area, then get home and ready for bed.
