For the foreseeable future I'm working for myself, as a contractor, here in sunny Helsinki, Finland.
My existing contract only requires me to work 1.5-2.0 days a week, meaning my week looks something like this:
- Monday & Tuesday
- I work for the client.
- Wednesday - Friday
- I act as a stay-at-home dad.
It does mean that I'm available for work Wednesday-Friday though, in the event I can find projects to work upon, or companies who would be willing to accept my invoices.
I think of myself as a sysadmin, but I know all about pipelines, automation, system administration, and coding in C, C++, Perl, Ruby, Golang, Lua, etc.
On the off-chance anybody reading this has a need for small projects, services, daemons, or APIs to be implemented then don't hesitate to get in touch.
I did manage to fill a few days over the past few weeks completing an online course from Helsinki Open University, Devops with Docker, it is possible I'll find some more courses to complete in the future. (There is an upcoming course Devops with Kubernetes which I'll definitely complete.)
