2022 is slowly reaching its end, making it a good time to sum up the previous 12 months. Globally, this year was a big mess, that's for sure, however, our personal lives didn't lack smaller or larger accomplishments here and there.
We'd love to ask you to share some of your achievements, things that made you proud or simply excited! Sky is the limit - pick anything that pops out in your mind 🎉
Every participant gets a unique "2022 Rewinder" badge and +100 bonus points.
Let's start with my little-big success: I've finally driven a left-hand car during my holidays in Cyprus. It wasn't as stressful as I've expected, even though the traffic was super busy! Now I feel ready to explore with rental cars New Zealand, South Africa, Japan... 😎
My two accomplishments for year (one Dynatrace related and one not)
1.) Setup Monaco to backup Dynatrace for two companies
2.) Started playing tennis again as I hadn't played since high school (many years ago)
I like the one Dynatrace related and one not accomplishment of Kenny, I'll stick with that.
1) Managed to bring the whole extension services team together for the first time, with people from all the way from North America to Europe to Australia.
2) Started eating healthier lunches (fruit and yoghurt!)
Was really excited about building my first (and then 2nd, 3rd, ..) 3D Printer from scratch. Had built a few from kits before but sourcing all the parts and building it from scratch was really great experience and lot's of fun.
The very first has been a while 😄
But I think for most of the printers the first print was a classic test print: Benchy
Also maybe not quite safe for work, but great for certain days is the F***topus 😉 :
Oh my, I understand you @Michal_Gebacki ! I had the same sensation some years ago after driving 500 miles in the UK for the first time 😁
Lots of good things this year for me to remember. I do love gardening a lot, and I would say I became a banana producer this year! 113 (not that big) bananas from the Madeira subspecie. They are more sweeter and tastier than the Cavendish subspecie that you might know, but are smaller.
Wow, a lovely garden indeed Had to do a quick research about Madeiras, is it true that you can't get those anywhere except Portugal?
Not a specialist in International Law, or European law, but seems that in the past some have defined what a "normal" banana is. And bananas from Madeira are not normal, so they can't be sold elsewhere than in Portugal. This might have evolved, not even checked for this post, but I have heard some strange things about bananas in the past. BTW, there is a good reason for the expression "banana republic"...
I also knew nothing about banana plants before a neighbors mother (from Madeira) brought 3 little banana babies for me. They have replicated into something very nice.
BTW2: I was really expecting that some keen eye would have noticed the bananas I posted in the following comment 🤣
Some are related to Dynatrace and some are not. Both are exciting events.
1) Selected as “the Community Member of the Month for September 2022”. I received a backpack as a prize, which I use for commuting.
2) Looking back on 2022, it's a new topic, but Japan's historic victory🙌 over Germany and Spain at the FIFA World Cup 2022⚽.
My big achievment this year is to be a part of Dynamight .
The second is, I joined the biggest customer in the MiddleEast for some achievement and the ENV is too huge.
Hope 2023 reserve best things.
2022 was a great year to me, despite the COVID (and its side effects in general).
- Got my Kyndryl SRE Level 2 certificaiton and am even more engaged in the SRE community there.
- Decided to take a great step in my personal life x work balance, working at home, in my home town, where I left 16 years ago to seek my career. I am now close to my old friends and family.
This year I changed a side from client to provider (dark side 😉) to share my DT experince with other clients. I started to follow my dream and I could focus only on DT in 2022.
I became a DynaMight. 😍
With the Community Team we launched the Hungarian user group which is growing.
I organaized the first Dynatrace PUB for our client's SREs.
Wow, that is an awesome challenge! Let's see what comes to my mind ....
3 vacations with my family!
Mission accomplished: We did catch up on vacations after the pandemic!
Same is true for socializing events with my one-of-a-kind Dynatrace colleagues:
Got some outdoor ice time with the grandkids. Tim Hortons coffee cups for goal posts! Was a late season thing last winter, but looking forward to many more of these skates this upcoming season!
Greetings, Community! 😄
Despite being a year of "coming back to normal", its intensity was a major crescendo with lots of fun stuff going on!
Professionally, I got 3 major achievements:
What a year! Sure hope 2023 will be even better, not necessarily with so many different personal achievements, but rather with lots of new great stuff that Dynatrace is building for us!
Outside work, and with pandemic-preventing measures fading out, my year finally returned to its usual, socially-intense, culturally-diverse, filled with lots of great events agenda! 😄
Being a volunteer at a cultural non-profit, the biggest feeling of accomplishment comes with finishing up an event (sometimes, for several thousand people) and realising that attendees enjoyed their time, and had fun with something you closely help to create!!
This frame was of our "Palmela White Party", from August: a "few" thousand people, 6 hours of party, right there in our home town! Talk about seeing your Community happy 😍
Also, with Covid gone, people could not only be together, celebrate together... but also play music together!
Again, the feeling of being part of something bigger than yourself is truly great!
In the picture below, a group of musicians from our Phillarmonic Society (myself included, of course!) played as a Marching Band in our annual tradition, after two years of Covid-induced cancellation…
The first grapes of the year were stomped (yes, with those top guys’ feet 🙂 ) while we (and other groups) played!
Again: 2022, you've been great and all, but... let's get ready for 2023! 😄 🎉
Kudos to you for being a member your community can (and definitely is!) proud of 💪💛 your 2022 sounds very busy but also joyful! And isn't it just the best combination!
What a year 2022 was!
At last we were back hosting face to face meetings, round tables and showing in conventions. The highlight for us as dynatrace RFO in Israel was hosting Dynatrace day Israel with over then 250 attendees, together with Mediro guys our co RFO from South Africa and our dynatrace guardian. Dynatrace Day Israel it was a blast!
From the recreation side of life as Covid-19 start to fadeaway my spouse and I took for our self 6 week of absence and went to Vietnam and Cambodia to clear our minds and get ready for new challenges to come. After riding local motorcycles in different parts of those countries I decided that is the right time in life to go back to my old love and back at home I bought a motorcycle for my self to feel again the engine roaring and the road flying 15cm under my feet at 120 km/h.
Here are few souvenirs from this last vacation
See you all around here next year and please stay safe
All the best
2022 was full of new experiences. I marked my 1st year with Dynatrace and also finished my 1st account as ACE consultant. With the end of this year, I'm transitioning to D1.
With family added a new member cat, Cherry. Had some awesome vacation in UP, South Carolina & Hawaii.
With the last day of 2022 I'm celebrating my first half a year of being a Dynatracer and a proud member of the Dynatrace Community team 💪
On the personal side of things, lots of stuff to be excited about as well: two concerts, fours trips (big and small), lots of creativity and opportunities to learn more about myself and the world around me.
Still waiting for the highlight of the year, though, the first reunion with my family since the war broke 💔
Here in Argentina football ⚽ is in our DNA. Enjoying the World Cup 💓💓💓 🇦🇷 with them is the best of this year even better than winning the cup. They are my might.
I've seen videos from streets of Buenos Aires crowded that much that footballers need to get out of the city centre through helicopter 😆 My cousin is now on the trip through South America, she says the spirit of people in this part of the world is priceless and encourages to come back - despite the distance, in the age of 25 she visited Argentine twice! 😎
Well, in this article someone writes the true character of our way of being, we have many defects, but much of what is written here by a foreigner is a good profile of how we are seen from the outside. I prefer to choose the good over the bad.
My accomplishment & I'm simply excited for year 2022
1. Successfully implemented Dynatrace for major clients 🏦
2. Blessed with baby Boy 👶🏼
3. Did certification is ScrumMaster
4. 33,522 steps at mount side on signal day to see temple🛕with beautiful view (wishlist✅)
5. Unplanned trip to hidden place during monsoon
Cheers R !!!
2022 was full of various adventures, and I really, really liked it - crossing my fingers that the next one will be similar 😊
As for accomplishments:
Thanks for reminding me to my Ireland trip a few years ago, I had only troubles with shifting gears with the 'wrong' hand 😅
This year was great, my daughter was born this summer 😍.
Far behind is then the 2nd great thing, I finally updated my workshop and joined the massive wood guild 🌲
Let's enjoy the last days of this year 🙂
2022 was quite a busy year for myself and my Family. Looking back on 2022 I'm so thankful for everything, our main highlights include:
- 2022 Community Rock Star Award
- My Wife and I had our first child
- We purchased our first house
- Had our first of everything with our Daughter (Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years)
- Started a new job just before the New Year
in the 2022
i was able finally to buy a PC with all requirements i want, the top of each component until that moment. with my others PCs i was just able to buy only low profile pcs.
probably was the year where i made more tools in python that draw images, trees, fields, calendars, beautifull fractal trees,
this year was the year were my son was more independent a more trustworthy person and the year were he want to expend more time playing with his friends than me its something that i know that happens but its my partner in games.
For me professionally it was a very good, but challenging year. I passed two Dynatrace certifications - Dynatrace Master and Services Delivery. Also, I learned a lot. Again.
Personally, finally after two years of "limited pandemic travel", it was the year when I and my family spent part of our summer vacation at the beach. And my Dynatrace backpack travelled with me 😁 Proof from Rhodes (Παραλία Πρασονησίου) is below.
My greatest achievement was in 2022,
1. I bought Apple products for the first time, including iPhone (Optimus Prime), iPad Pro (Brownie), iWatch (Pikachu), AirPods Pro (Akamaru), MacBook Pro (Naruto) and PS5 and Galaxy S22 Ultra (Hope 2.0), not to forget. It was one of the best years of my life in purchasing gadgets.
2. I managed to make friends with an amazing person and felt good. Being an introvert, it is a great deal for us when we make new friends and they're actually trustworthy.
So many things happened in the community while I was enjoying a 3-week holiday at the coast, so I'm late to the party but here goes...both are personal accomplishments:
From a Dynatrace perspective, it was pretty much a business-as-usual year for me, so no specific events or achievements to mention - perhaps 2023 will have more excitement in store for me!
