What an amazing year!

by

It’s been a weird and amazing year and this Monday I graduated from the 13 month long Management Trainee programme at IKEA. I spent yesterday reflecting on all of the people who made this year possible.

As IKEA is going through some major changes, my next step is still unclear. Luckily this also means that a lot needs to get done, and I’m in a temporary role as IT Project Lead looking into the area of DevOps. Hopefully, with some grit, skill and timing, my IKEA career has just begun!

On DevOps

Digging into the magnificent world of DevOps. It’s fun to see how one interest leads to the next. From data analytics to artificial intelligence and machine learning. From straight up agile teams to DevOps organizations. It goes hand in hand with what I’m exposed to at work.

Also, I miss working with robotics and physical products so much!

I catch myself watching Boston Dynamics videos while drinking my morning coffee. Reminiscing about the days when I built robots with my friends, not knowing what agile is, but working agile. Not knowing what lead time or customer value is, but feeling a positive sense of urgency to get it done and caring for the end result.

If you haven’t read up on DevOps (basic software manufacturing and care principles), then I highly recommend the DevOps Handbook!
