So how to motivate yourself when you work from home and your work is becoming boring. Well do a side project, open source or something that you want to do but cant introduce at your company. I started reading hadoop but again I was just reading but not doing it.
Then one of my friend came up to me and said he wanted to move the build system for his side project into EC2 and can I help him. I was like why not, I did it free of charge over 1 hour daily in night for 2-3 months but in this process I learnt a lot about :
- Jenkins and how to spin new slaves and launch remote builds
- how to install CentOS on EC2 and use yum
