And just like that, 2017 is almost gone. Last year, around this time, I wrote a post through which I reflected what I did or did not accomplish in 2016. It is now time to do the same for 2017. A lot happened in 2017 and I would like to take a step back and reflect to make sure I am still pursuing my goals.
I started learning AWS
There are a lot of options out there these days when it comes to cloud computing such as Azure, AWS, Google Cloud etc. I decided to pick AWS and learn the basics. There is no doubt that cloud is the way to go. 5-10 years from now, most companies will not have an infrastructure department. It will be provided by third party companies as a service. As far as I am concerned, I am interested in spinning up some EC2 instances on AWS, using S3/Glacier to store files and storing data in an AWS database such as RedShift.
