December 2016


Since my last log, about a month and a half ago, I’ve

  • completed my two week #song_a_day challenge | listen here
  • written a few more tunes since the challenge | listen here
  • made it through the Black Friday/Cyber Monday hustle here at Shopify
  • read Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea by Guy Delisle, pretty interesting
  • traveled to and from New Jersey for 🇺🇸 Thanksgiving, heading back Monday for🎄
  • added caching to our NGINX configs to improve load times… should we CDN? Hmmm 🤔 #midnightmurderparty

Tonight I’m going to

  • meet with @rhitakorrr to discuss the Elm 0.18 upgrade, fine tune caching, and plan the coming week of dev
  • clean my apartment, gotta be spotless before I check out for three weeks
  • catch up with On A Sunbeam, one of the best web comics I’ve ever read

October 2016


👋 Hello again LittleLogs. It’s been a little while since I’ve posted on here. While I haven’t been working on Midnight Murder Party recently, I have been super productive in three other ways.

First off, the last couple weeks here at Shopify have been fantastic. Shipping code, fixing bugs, taking on a solo dev role in a hackathon and so on has been going super well. Programming wise, I’ve been very busy, just, only at work.

Secondarily, I’ve been super busy socially which I figure counts towards productivity. Compared to the couple months prior to September of almost exclusively playing FFXIV and developing MMP, socially, it’s been a night and day change.

Lastly, I’ve taken on a #song_a_day challenge as of two Sundays ago. I have released eight songs thus far and today will be song number 9. Follow along here if you’re interested. #music
