I’ve been writing drafts of technical posts recently. I was going to put them on my personal site, but they didn’t seem to fit there. So I decided to start a whole new site for my technical writing.
Over the last year or so I’ve been playing with a lot of fascinating technology: microservices, Spring boot, AWS, Jenkins, REST and so on. For a while I’d been bored by programming but I now feel enthusiasm again. I’m full of ideas for things to learn and services that I want to build, and wanted a space where I could write about what I’d learned and what I was thinking.
I’m off to µCon on Thursday, then the LJC Open Conference on Saturday, both of which I’m sure will give me a lot to write about. There are various new technologies I want to play with, like Vagrant. I’ve been thinking about how the lessons from microservices apply to the world of monoliths. Programming has become massively more complicated over the years I’ve been doing it, but that is starting to feel exciting.
