got up and deployed some software. whoo.
did a bunch of release engineer project management ticket shuffling crap after that. ended up having a small bug that i had to scramble to hotfix. whee.
had my first 1:1 with my first direct report. that was pretty cool, it’s been a while since i’ve had somebody who really needs and wants the mentoring.
found another small bug in the afternoon; scrambled to fix that too.
by 3pm everything was back to purring along. spent some time catching up on my “read later” backlog, and planning out next week’s release (and occasionally looking at vote totals…)
