I started my journey as a networking guy, used to be satisfied and happy about what I know inside out about networking. But as Cloud evolves, I realized that there’s so much about virtualization await to be learnt. It’s necessary to have a place to memo whatever I learned and be kept well for future troubleshooting reference. This is also a perfect place to encourage myself to keep learning, because it’s the best weapon you may have in IT world.

I actually started blogging since 2012 on Wordpress, but recently migrated all contents into new web tech going serverless, that’s why you may see blog starts year 2018 only, because all data was imported since then.
