Back from Donationcoder past....


Hello all!  Been a long time.  I just checked my profile and it looks like the last time I was on, at least regularly, was over 4 years ago.  :-[

Crazy 4 years, though.  After I got my new position at work 4 years ago, I was too busy to really come back to the boards.  About a year and a half later, I got laid off, and then a new position in a growing software company where I am a DevOps Engineer.  For those who don't already know, that basically means I am part time sysadmin, part time code deployment guru for our company. I love this new position (Well, not new anymore. I have been at it for 3 years in October).  In this position, I install, configure, and maintain hundreds of servers, push services, websites, and database scripts all over the place, and lately have even gotten heavily into automation scripting and some lighter programming.

I want to put out this shout out right here to Donation Coder as a whole, and Mouser in particular as it's founder, because it is here, where I really started learning about scripting and programming.  I learned the languages, in school, but it was here that I learned how to work through actual code issues in the Code School.  I never got very good, but it was a basis that made me able to get into automation scripting very efficiently, and for that, I can't thank this community enough.

I don't know how often I will get back to say hello and participate again - it may be another 4 years for all I know; but I just wanted to say thank you while I am here.

Good for you!  :Thmbsup:

Steeladept it is great to hear from you -- and congratulations!
 You joined the forum in 2006 -- over 10 years ago.  Time flies so quickly -- a more quickly every year it seems.

Thank you for posting and giving us an update -- it makes me happy to hear that you are doing well and that you are happy.

Now don't be so shy in the future -- feel free to lean on us a little if you run into an issue you need help with or if you just want to share some good or bad news, etc.

I definitely intend to.  Anytime I can give back here, I will do what I can.
