Now | Developer Musings


Inspired by the /now page movement. The purpose of this page is to share what I'm currently focused on.

What are my interests?

  • Self-Hosted Software
  • Resiliency
  • Automation
  • Reading - old fashioned paper books!
  • Hiking

What am I up to?

  • Doing lots of DIY in my first home with my new wife and playing fetch with my dog Millie
  • Focusing on creating rather than consuming
  • Building TurboAPI
  • Continuing to simplify

What tech am I using

  • At work and home I use a Macbook Pro of varying years (M1 at Home, MBP 16 inch at Work)
  • Primarily using Typescript to write new services and React to write front-ends
  • Using AWS to deploy and host
  • Configuring lots of bots/automations via Docker, Zapier, IFTTT, Shortcuts and a personal Slack workspace
  • I use an iPhone 8+ as my mobile device for security and usability reasons - don't @ me
  • You can find the setup for my machines (which are standardized) here
