Setting up on Wilco

Ready to start work and get the local environment set up making sure that the backend and frontend are connected and a test user is created.

What's really cool about setting up the local environment is that they get you familiar with creating your own Github Codespaces. It's pretty quick you get the instructions for setup from your manager Ness and how to run docker within the codespace terminal to load their backend and frontend.

Ness asks about what work and skills you'd like to focus on with choices for work are out of Database, Backend, Frontend, and DevOps, and as for skills Setup, Operations, Debugging, Observability, Communication, Documentation, Monitoring, and Performance.

It's a quick quest that takes about 2 minutes to complete. I enjoy their retro-looking gifs which give me the feels of the Apple tv series Severance.
