Reading the IBM Press book on Autonomic Computing. I really want to think of myself as an extension of this process. Even though I work in a call center, there is data to be collected and monitored. and being a part of the Autonomic process means containing these elements in a describable and agreed upon format to complete more automated tasks.
I suppose that as the number of cores increases, so will the amount of logging and analysis. In an effort to better equip myself to manage that kind of effort, I have decided to return to school. Starting off with some simple, remedial work in calculus, then moving on to something bigger and better in the world of engineering.
