Infrastructure and software as a hobby
I've noticed over time, since this / these hobbies overlap with work (I'm an IT Leader), I've been coupling the topics we read about here with related endeavours. Most recently with the TIG stack : Telegraf, InfluxDB and Grafana to monitor my small home lab starting with 2 RPIs.
Eventually I will add my Windows machines (where the problem I was trying to solve originated, one of my laptops was overheating), and maybe some environment data from my temp/humidity sensors etc. I also will add internet speed data, since I support the online movie streaming landscape here in the house 🙂
Wanting to build the developer's workstation (or a variation thereof) in the DroneBot Workshop video/article, but not wanting to build from scratch, I built a virtual machine using VMWare Workstation Player.
Time series databases, monitoring and dashboards, virtual servers/desktops.....all technologies my teams support.
My project backlog grows, sometime exponentially it seems. Anybody else see hobby/work overlapping?
Oh, I should add....my project space is visible when I have Teams/Zoom meetings. I get lots of comments on the "home lab", a good ice-breaker!
Enjoy whatever it is you are building today!
