I Cannot Wait For You

Git Cute Issue #12

(Have you been forwarded this email?)

Hey everyone!

It’s less spring and more summer now. With several days in the mid-80s, there’s no denying it here on the East Coast! Now is the time of short dresses, maximalist fashion, and tech conferences and I plan on doing it all.



  • Conquer System Design is on pace for the mid-May release, and I am very excited. Who knew that it would take so long to create videos to audio? The preorder price is still available until launch day and will increase!

  • I have to move come the end of July due to my lease ending which is fine, but damn I did not want to have to do this move in the middle of the summer. I have it narrowed down to a couple of apartment buildings, and then I will finalize it hopefully by the end of the month!

  • Work has become extremely busy for me. The team I lead will go from 2 engineers to 7/8 flex next quarter, and I have two new engineers starting this month! I am very excited to see where this goes because I feel I can build a great team through this.


This week's email is sponsored by Microsoft Surface - the Microsoft computer with touchscreen and digital pen capabilities!

Microsoft Surface computers are fashionable and come in a wide range of beautiful colors that can match your style. It allows people the choice between a laptop, a tablet, or honestly, both at the same time to adjust to the various needs of their busy lives. Our products are designed with sustainability and accessibility at heart, with a goal to be 100% recyclable packaging and Surface devices by 2030. Microsoft built their computers FOR Windows 11 and Microsoft 365, meaning safety is built-in from the moment you unbox your computer, and there IS NO better computer to work with your favorite applications!

The Microsoft Surface Pro 9 (starting at $999.99 USD) has the power of a laptop and the flexibility of a tablet! With a 13” touch screen and adjustable built-in kickstand, it’s built for everything you do and anywhere you do it!

It’s all about speed and style with the Surface Laptop 5 (starting at $999.99 USD.) In a super sleek and lightweight design, the laptop has a touchscreen, making it perfect for multitasking at high speed with up to 17 hours of battery life!

And when you do purchase your Microsoft Surface, don’t forget to add the additional functionality with purchasing the Microsoft Surface Pro Signature Keyboard with Slim Pen 2!

Kubernetes is now run by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, but who originally designed the system?

Links That Made Me Happy

Some of these links may be affiliate links for me, but no one mentioned has told or paid me to mention their products. You don't have to use them if you do not wish to use them!

  • This winter, I went through and purged a lot of clothes that didn’t fit, weren't in the best shape, or things I just did not wear. This week, I realized that many of my spring and summer clothes were non-existent. While I did go to my mainstay for mid and plus-size clothing, ASOS, I decided to take the leap of faith and invest in some pieces from Madewell and Mara Hoffman! My favorite piece has to be this dress. The colors, the textures… love!

  • Because I am now the tech lead of a Platform team, I decided that I wanted to get as much information about site reliability as possible. I realized this book wasn’t in my library, so I picked it up for light reading on the treadmill.

Have an amazing week, and please be kind to yourself and others.
