New year, a new start
Because I work mainly on a privately hosted repository, I don't have the luxury of displaying my stats like I used to. I have been recording stuff on codestats but i find that its lacking alittle in actual stuff. WakaTime seems to be a good option but i'll need to figure out how to integrate it to the privately hosted gitlab instance that we have.
Last year was a pretty tumultuous year for me, and honestly i'm still worried about the situation. The blip as we call it was not a good sign, especially when we were still aggressively hiring prior to that, all of a sudden hiring stopped and bang 70% of the company headcout got retrenched. Roles were redefined, and everyone was taking on more work load.
For a good half of the year, we were so busy firefighting every single problem that surfaced. Our software went from v5.0 to v5.9.0-rc.5 at the end of 2023. Each week we were pushing fixes after fixes, refactoring code and figuring out where the issues were.
Manufacturing output started to pick up towards the last 2 quarters, and with all the work being done we managed to pull through strongly achieving all the targets set above and beyond the expected.
With every year, I hope that I can be better than yester-self. Onward and upwards!
