Sometimes people are afraid to leave their jobs and make a change, but if you don't leave that comfort zone, you are always going to have the same knowledge. For those in technology careers, you cannot allow yourself to avoid learning or leaving your comfort zone.— Karen Ramirez, Performance Engineer at PSL

In today's Daily Standup, we interview Karen Ramirez, an up-and-coming Performance Engineer at PSL.
6 months - I really really like it.
As a performance engineer it's really difficult sometimes. It's not like being a developer where you have to learn how to develop in different languages and within different architectures. Or like an automation engineer, when you have to learn how to automate. Or even as a DevOps specialist, and you have to learn all about DevOps. Those roles have more clearly defined challenges and components that should be learned.
As a performance engineer, you have to know a little bit of everything. You have to be aware of architectures, programming languages, DevOps for performance, and think as a whole in performance engineering. You have to learn a lot of things, but also take into account the normal challenges when learning a new technology or process.
Mario Kart. One of our co workers has a Nintendo Switch so we get to play sometimes.
I learned how to use python libraries to create statistical models to predict and analyze performance results.
I like to go to the gym.
