I did some Rancher2 work today. Somewhat fulfilling I can say. That magic when things you do fall into place and you keep your people happy.
We work on top of layers, on top of layer, on top of yet more layers of abstraction. The machine is so far away that we may not even need to know the details of it to make it work (“The line is a dot to you” like Joey said). Nor do our horror stories look like this. Yet while they are equally epic, they’re not just as legendary.
