Achievement 2018!

I've never placed much emphasis on achievements, so much so that whenever I was asked about my achievements during job interviews, I tend to be unable to mention anything at all about why I'm more fantastic or better than anyone else.

So, I'm blogging about this, so that I may remember when it's time to talk about it.

This year, I

  • wrote a Packer builder for Tencent in about 1-2 months, learning Go at the same time as well.
  • fixed a bug in less than 2 weeks in a Python app that my colleague (ex-AWS with 5+ years experience there) couldn't fix in 8 months.
  • wrote lambda functions in Go and Terraform that dynamically updates AWS autoscaled instances and backs up data stored on them.
  • fixed memory leaks in a Delphi plugin that others with supposedly more professional experience than me couldn't fix.
And occasionally, someone who didn't understand what I accomplish would imply I'm less than capable just  because I didn't work in (take your pick of some software company, ie, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Yahoo, Facebook) as a software engineer.

So there... not bragging, but stating my accomplishments and achievements.
