Got verified today with the amazing help of Amanda Stewart and the team over at Polywork. 🚀
While the verification process took less than 5 minutes (and that's including some informal introductions and small chit-chat), we hit one of Murphy's general laws and a software bug hindered us from instantly deploying the fancy verified badge next to my profile name. 🔥

Fortunately, the development team dispatched whatever caused the issue in record time and, in less than 15 minutes, Amanda got back to me over email saying it's fixed! 🚧

Good news everyone! 🤖

Attended an event
Yesterday, I attended an event on how to improve a Linkedin profile. Here are some of the important points:
1. Always add a message while sending a connection request.
2. Add all the important experiences/responsibilities in the Headline section of your LinkedIn page.
3. You may add even in your smallest achievements in the Featured section.
4. Keep your Linkedin profile updated.
5. Build the habit to open Linkedin regularly and check for opportunities.

Attended an industry event
 Attending tech conferences is something that I have found really helps improve and enhance knowledge of the industry and learn about new tools and technology. Having been sure to check their Covid rules beforehand (and wearing a mask throughout), I went to the Blueprint LDN event (co-located with Big Data LDN). It was great to be among people that are wanting to move things forwards, to look at how AI and automation improve processes and operational rigour.

Some of the sessions of interest:

I also came away with a desire to learn more about Docker and platforms such as Kubernetes and Rancher.

It was certainly a good use of my time to attend and I hope they grow the event next year.
