I am a software engineer - since I was 9 😄.
What can I say about myself? I always want to reach deeper understanding of the stuff I am dealing with. How exactly is rebalancing in Kafka implemented? How does Zookeeper reach its consensus? Those are the questions that inspire me to dig in the code and share my findings with others.
In my opinion the most important virtue of a software engineer is eagerness to understand the principles that drive almost all technologies, since libraries, frameworks, and databases come and go, but principles last forever. That enables us to grasp a brand-new technology quicker and understand its pros and cons better.
Although I try hard to tackle complex issues on this blog, by all means I do not feel like an absolute expert, so I highly encourage you to drop a comment here and there to let me know what you think. I am always keen on discussing tech stuff, since it is the quickest way to learn.
