These are thoughts and updates I collect from my desk to bring to you.
Lobbed a Letter Your Way
I’m now a senior software engineer at Lob.
Using Minio As Your Object Store with Arc
The last thing I want to do is have a bucket in my AWS S3 account solely for the sake of development support. And having an actual store to hit in integration tests without incurring fees (you do load tests often, right)? is nice.
Diving Deeper into Freelancing
Buckling down in my freelancing lifestyle.
Check In Often With Those You Love
Getting off the phone with a friends of decades made me realize that I don’t lean back often enough.
Hopping Off, Opening Doors
A lot has happened in the last two weeks of life. I’ve entered funemployment, Good For POC is transitioning to being an open source platform and I’m launching a few more projects.
I’m Launching a Newsletter
I’ll abide by the CAN-SPAM rules, I promise.
Stop Writing Tests For MVPs
I’ve attempted to work on a few side projects for close to a year now. The biggest roadblocks weren’t prototyping interfaces or hammering out user feedback. It was always around me attempting to debug and capture test cases that didn’t exist.
App Installs are Dying
I’m really about this WebASM tho!
I’ve Failed At Being a Man
This was an apology to Shay. Being accountable and deeply reflective is something that comes with great difficulty for me. The end of the last relationship I was in allowed me to see how toxic of a person we both are and what we both need to do in order to grow as people.
Pulling My Thangs In Haus
I love the notion of hosting software for single tenant use. It’s the equivalent to reading a recipe and making the food at home versus visiting a chain and getting a boring, easily reproducible experience. Some people really enjoy chain meals but I will body a home cooked meal every time.
I’m not sure why I wrote this post. It definitely came as a point of reckoning, me attempting to clear my mind a bit.
Catching That Ride
After a moment of searching, I’ll be joining the teams at Lyft to make ridesharing more friendly and accessible for all.
