I am heading towards my first in-person tech event for 2023 → Civo Navigate, featuring great sessions and my awesome cloud native friends. I am preparing my slides for the new product launches and Kubernetes workshop. The only sad part is that my anniversary falls on 5th Feb, and I will be in the US, this breaks my heart, and if it had not been for Civo, I would have skipped this.
Apart from this, I have seen a few trends and examples being set up in DevRel space which I personally do not like, and I did a Twitter space on that clarifying some of the stuff(This was done in Hindi language). But more needs to be done in this space to say the right things and not just spread the hype. Some of the points from my space which was done in Hindi were posted as a thread by Scoutflo.
Another thing I shared is a mega thread on some of the advanced content on my YouTube to make you all aware that there are MANY deep dive, production, and FIRST TIME ON YOUTUBE videos on my channel. So Kubesimplify is a place having content for ALL skill levels :)
I know the first month of 2023 is already over but there has been a lot done by the community.
=> What have I been doing?
I have been working on a few items heads down for Civo
Created a video on the most hyped topic → ChatGPT but with my own touch ;)
In this video, I discuss how to use ChatGPT as a linux terminal, Kubernetes cluster, write demo programs, be safe from outputs, go code to interact with Kubernetes and also my views on our jobs with ChatGPT. So go check that out!
Worked on a new style of teaching and working a lot of content for you people, so do subscribe to my channel :)
Two Twitter spaces: one on DevRel in Hindi and another on Time management in English.
Civo Webinar - where I talked about different tooling and ways to reduce and put a check on your cloud spend.
One of the biggest launches this month was Kubesimplify on Instagram. I am not an Insta fan, but the ambassadors had an idea to post regularly on Instagram and try to post short tricks and concepts as visuals daily. So if you are on Instagram, then you can follow us.
Twitch streams - This is something our ambassadors Avinesh, Anurag and Dipankar have been trying to do on daily basis. Concept here is that they are learning and doing stuff live and the viewers can learn with them, so it’s a real form of learn by doing live.
Make sure to follow us on Twitch and support what they are doing and also learn with them.
