Hi there. I’m Kris Evans and I’ve been working in IT for over 16 years as a Windows systems engineer. As I’ve progressed throughout my career, I’ve come to realise a few things about myself:
- I’m one of the few people I know who genuinely enjoys what I do (although like everyone some days are less enjoyable than others)
- I like to share knowledge (but not always food)
- I’m quite a fan of researching what I like (you should see my cookbook collection…)
- I actively seek out ways to be more effective and efficient at my work but…
- Good habits are hard to form and bad ones are hard to break
And there’s one really annoying realisation (probably already one that’s already dawned on those of you already in a technical IT role, perhaps starting off in your career or already a veteran): if you’re anything like me, you’ll know that there’s never enough time to learn all the stuff you want to know (…and there’s always plenty of that).
Weaving all that together, I’m starting this blog to help share what I’ve experienced, what I’ve tried and tested and what I’ve found to work (at least for me… as with everything, your mileage may vary). There’s some ideas & thoughts, some tech stuff (both deep and shallow), but hopefully it’ll be useful to you and help you to be more productive. It’s not just limited to tech people but to anyone out there who struggles to get more out of the day and is starting on the journey to be more effective (a journey I’ve found to be very introspective… and there’s still plenty of road to go).
Most importantly though, I’m launching this blog to help give back to the community; blogs and articles have helped my career immensely by blogs and articles like the one I’m writing and I’d like to think that it’ll help other engineers out there in the same way. Pay it forward, as they say.
So, if you’d like to join me on this journey, enter your email into the Follow widget and you’ll receive updates when I post. You can also find me on Twitter at @dconstructdtech.
