I really like Docker. I’ve been using it in anger for the past couple of months and it’s made my deployment-to-production much easier. Where I was really struggling was getting it working for local development.
If I’m truthful, I don’t really get LinkedIn. I guess a marketing consultant would tell me that I need to develop a social media strategy to decide what I want out of it, but I haven’t.
I made a statement in a recent article that “there is no such thing as self-documented code”. Clearly this is untrue - after all, it has it’s own Wikipedia page. Despite this, I strongly believe that self-documenting code is a nonsense.
I’m a contractor, so I see lots of different coding styles and messy code is the bane of my life. This isn’t bad code as such, or even spaghetti code, just messy.
I regularly get asked “on a scale of 1-10, how good are you at x technology?”.
Last weekend, I saw my neighbour whilst walking into the village. We got chatting about this and that and he said “ooooh, you’re a web designer - we’re looking for one at the council. You should apply for it.”
This happened last week…
If I thought it was painful getting code coverage working for a Node TypeScript project, then getting it working in Karma was even more painful. The worst thing is, there’s precious little (useful) documentation out there for it. After two days worth of experiments, I got it working.
