Got published in the Snyk blog which took off nicely.

I completed a full stack app project as a milestone for my bootcamp. 🥳 And as part of it, I used an async function to get all of the data and alphabetize it in the API router functions.

I didn't know what an API router function was a couple of weeks ago. 😊

I used React, Node, Express, and MySQL.

The function

This is awesome! API routing can be such a confusing topic, but you learn soooo much about HTTP along the way and it's a really great way to learn because you're not just learning the what, but also the why. 💯

Just published a new blog post with a hand-drawn cover image

Writing new posts is fun, but making the cover images is even better. I like the process of brainstorming new images, and browsing other people's work for inspiration.

And now, with the weekend coming around, it's time to read more Rust in Action.

I was experimenting with ARM-based servers on Google Kubernetes Engine, but in order to do that I had to add a selector to every deployment that said "it's okay to run this on servers with ARM processors" (so if you have both ARM and Intel servers, it doesn't try to run stuff for one on the other), including deployments I didn't create myself. Someone suggested a way of automating it, and I posted a bit about that journey, originally started as a question, on

Kubernetes webhooks and certs for those webhooks - The Ops Community ⚙️

I'm experimenting with running ARM-based workloads on GKE so I need to set nodeSelector:...

Moved all my projects' Windows CI to Github Actions instead of Appveyor. Because Windows is involved it was a gigantic ball-ache, but I'm 97% of the way there and have decided I can't be bothered with any more debugging for the one remaining project which fails in Github Actions Windows but passed in Appveyor's Windows.

I have built an app using AI that allows its users to use the power of the AI

It generates personalised emails for the recruiters, and I am about to respond with this link to all the bad emails from recruiters I am receiving.
