Hi, I’m Josh Duffney
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, Terraform, DevOps, Career, Cloud, and digital minimalism.
When I need to escape the attention economy I disappear from social media. But I’m always writing. When I reemerge I use Twitter as my journal.
At my day job, I’m a Site Reliability Engineer @StackOverflow. 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.
TL:DR * Automation (PowerShell) * Source Control (Git) * Release Engineering (TeamCity, Octopus, GitHub Actions) * Infrastructure as Code (DSC, Ansible, Terraform) * Cloud (Azure & AWS) 7 Years of Learning in 5 Bullet points.
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.
