The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 730,000 times in 2015. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 31 days for that many people to see it.

Eureka! – 2014 Review

Spending most of my time working for Lane Crawford last year. A very good experience to train up myself especially in Continuous Integration and systems/application monitoring~ Thanks Ronnie for giving me a chance to work with him again and also meet a interesting team in LC.

Other than tech stuff like Puppet, Django and Dashing etc. I think the most important thing i learn is about the goal of adopting Continuous Integration. In that past, i always thought that CI is about automating tedious steps and reduce any prone to human error. But now i realize that other than these practical purposes, CI also helps to promote team work with your colleagues which, for me, is very important in a working environment. And that may be the reason why i love working on CI project so much as i am always looking forward to working in a harmonic and funny team.

All the best in 2015!

Steep or Gentle Learning Curve?

I just realize i always misinterpret the meaning of learning curve. So here are the definitions on the internet.

From Wikipedia
The expression steep learning curve is used with opposite meanings. The term is often used in common English with the meaning of a difficult initial learning process. Nevertheless, the Oxford English Dictionary, The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, and Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary define a learning curve as the rate at which skill is acquired, so a steep increase would mean a quick increment of skill.
From StackOverflow
The term learning curve refers to the graphical relation between the amount of learning and the time it takes to learn.
A graphic representation of progress in learning measured against the time required to achieve mastery.

Here’s an excerpt:

About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 730,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 13 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in Europe!
