This time last year I was just transitioning off of swing shift/night shift. What a weird year it's been. From managing two shifts, composing 5 supervisors and ~115 employees, to then managing training and development for a factory, to leaving and moving a county away to much, much closer to the mountains and managing 4 employees in research and development. It's been a crash course in r&d and a new industry for me, learning data engineering & things like datalakes and how all of this can help improve r&d processes. Been a lot in 8 months and feeling like I'm just now really getting a hang of it.
