Another year has gone by. Considering I’m supposed to be retired from tech blogging, and that I moved country this year, and wrote extremely detailed walkthroughs of Day of the Tentacle and Menzoberranzan, I’m surprised that I managed to write as much as I did.
Among the 26 articles I’ve published over the past year are:
- GoLang articles including “GoLang Timestamps: A Cross-Platform Nightmare“, “From .NET to GoLang: Here We Go Again“, “TOTP and Authenticator Apps for 2FA in Go” and “GoLang: Using defer for Scope Bound Resource Management“.
- VS Code articles including “Formatting JSON in Visual Studio Code“, “Working with VS Code Launch Configurations“, “Getting Started with the Go Programming Language (GoLang) using VS Code“, “Getting Started with Rust using VS Code” and “Go To Line Number in Visual Studio Code“.
- Articles about Switzerland including the detailed “Surviving in Canton Zurich” and the simpler “Surprising Swiss Trivia“.
- A combination of articles about graph databases covering Memgraph, Cartography and more, including “Using the Neo4j Bolt Driver for Python with Memgraph“, “Project Management is a Graph Problem“, “Getting Started with Cartography for Okta” and “Migrating Cartography to Memgraph“.
- A brief return to Unity3D with “Unity3D: Dungeon Crawler Movement with Collisions“, shortly before the company decided to rip off its users.
- “Hiring Software Engineers: From Dev to Interviewer“, a detailed overview of being a developer on the interviewing side, from my perspective.
- “Running Puppeteer under Docker“, a messy hack that you probably shouldn’t do.
- Other articles on security, user experience, Flask/AlpineJS, barcodes, and the 10th anniversary of Programmer’s Ranch.
Having stopped working with .NET has clearly opened up the way to more interesting things. Given that the three most popular articles in the last three months were written in the last year, I like to think that at least some of what I’ve written has appealed to a wide audience and is helping them to solve problems.
I’m not sure what the tenth year will be like for Gigi Labs, but I hope it will be fun!
