Hi, I’m Josh Duffney

Welcome to my blog. I write, present, teach, and tweet about; DevOps, Cloud, and how to work in technology without being consumed by it.

At my day job, I’m a Site Reliability Engineer @StackOverflow. Working in technology is fast paced and ever changing. That’s why I treat my career as a business. A business dedicated to always learning and always sharing.

I write a weekly email, Tuesday’s Thoughts. Where I share how I stay in the driver’s seat of my career. I only share the most valuable lessons I’ve learned, as I learn them.

My blog is a collection of my work, curated resources, and ideas. Ideas I’ve used to improve my career, myself and my life. As you browse my digital home, you’ll find content on; PowerShell, Ansible, DevOps, Career, Cloud, deep work, and digital minimalism.

I’ve documented my journey from sysadmin to SRE in a series of posts. Doubling My Salary a PowerShell Story, Becoming a Craftsman, What Matters Beyond the Salary, and You’re an Engineer be an Engineer.

Technology has given me a career, not a job. I love what I do, but there’s a catch. It’s nearly impossible to avoid the clutches of an always-on, always connected mentality. Falling prey to that mentality has led me to burnout.

To combat it, I focus on deep, meaningful work and practice digital minialism in order to detach from distraction and live a life empowered by technology not consumed by it.
