Keep a social journal of your work progress as you make and learn things.


Tonight was not as crazy as last night, as described in my last post, but it was still quite a crazy #midnightmurderparty dev night. Events worth noting:

  • Upgraded my internal network by changing by Bell router into a bridge and hooking up a new router I picked up yesterday. Down with 2.4GHz WiFi congestion, 5GHz AC or bust!
  • Fixed the Raspberry Pi staging server, which was completely out of commision with the aforementioned network changes.
  • Stripped out all environment variable usage in favour of a secrets YAML file.
  • Upgraded our DigitalOcean droplet to 1GB of RAM. Hot deploys work!!!

Basically: physical infrastructure, virtualized infrastructure, and code infrastructure.
