found some naive usages of dynamodb on a production app that were causing an incredible amount of Read Capacity Units and by making a few changes (described in this post brought rcu down from 50K to about 500. 🚀💪🤓

Finally got some shopify code working with Spring Boot. Still trying to get the damn app embed block working. Ugh.

Spoke at a meetup and two conferences (May/June are just loaded with all of these).

Made a comment on Reddit and supported it with a link to a video where I go into more details. I got back a detailed response explaining why I misunderstood the video. Apparently the guy in the video (me) was talking about something else...

I started a new project – developer utilities.

I even have a few people using it so very happy with the progress!

Working on making the design prettier and will share it with more people next week.

I got my Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics! Also, I moved out of a role with grace, prepped for the new one, and made significant progress towards course and book deals on major platforms.

Someone handed me a small novel problem to code up a small "Chaos Monkey" style prog, so I got given 2-3 days to code something up in Go that will just wreck stuff for fun in order test basic infra resiliency.
