Haven’t updated this blog for half a year because… I was actually writing it in a private blog. It’s mostly incoherent ramblings on the new frameworks/languages that I’ve been learning, trying to sort out my thoughts the whole time.
But there are a few key takeaways from the past couple of months since I’ve started working at Govtech.
The project that I’m working on utilizes the micro-service architecture. Which everyone know it’s a buzzword these days. However, to actually implement it in the way that works out as well as the bigger players like Netflix, Twitter, etc; is a heck a lot more difficult than I naively imagined it to be. (will probably have a separate post about micro-services cause it’s too much to write about in a single post)
Here’s the list of technologies that we are using, and pretty much all of them require me to pick up from scratch.
|Spring boot||Backend framework|
|React Redux Saga||Frontend framework|
|Terraform||Infrastructure as Code|
|Airflow||Scheduler (haven’t dive in yet)|
Because of what I’ve been working on, I have decided to revamp my January home server setup again. It’s still in progress because I can’t get my Kubernetes cluster to initiate correctly and it has been driving me bananas.
In this period of time I have also revamped my portfolio page to be more modern and doesn’t have slight misalignment that the previous layout had. The reason it turned out well is probably because I got tired of trying to do everything from scratch by myself and just used a well-known framework, Bootstrap. (Fun fact: It was built with pure CSS grid layout and ES6 generator functions)
In any case, I think I will make an effort to write here more often instead of dumping everything on a private blog. After all, sharing is caring right?
