Stories from an Italian Software Engineer
Let’s talk about dashboards, shall we?
It’s not uncommon in my work to work on Monitoring or Observability problems.
A team or multiple teams deploy their applications in one of the environments, we can assume production, and they want to know how the System behaves.
The evolution I’ve seen is:
I’m a nerd; I’ll not deny it. I love to explore new things, run experiments and learn from them.
I want a stable system to backup my data, be it pictures, videos, documents etc. I want a place to install and run software that I want to test and possibly have it at hand reach when needed.
I want everything in my network to work over SSL, and I want to have the ability to serve different services on different subdomains of a well-known domain so that my family can reach them without having to know an IP address.
After a couple of years of experimenting, I finally found something that works.
