Working steadily with #typescript now, jasmine/karma testing is a blast and actually starting to see dev team I work with write almost similar code. On the #rails front trying to find a decent content editor that works well with angular, sticking with mercury editor for now.

Made a few long overdue changes to #ep, now just watching the #aws outage rage on twitter. It seems their Zone-B datacenter is down but Zone-A unaffected so far. Probably related to the awful weather they are having.

Preparing for EnergyPledge launch this weekend, mostly UI stuff and writing more tests for a bit of confidence. Excited and terrified at the thought of some actual traffic. Made some major progress with #webpack at my dayjob getting our assets down to a third of their previous size.
