Feel free to tell what you plan on doing this weekend and even ask for help or feedback.
Please keep in mind it’s more than OK to do nothing at all too!
Learning Django, anyone has had a similar experience where you build something quick in Flask but then it suffers a bit of “cohesiveness”? Hard to describe. There are a bunch of Flask-SomePackageThatDoesOneThing in my dependencies. I’ve been reading Django docs and almost everything is included. Need to generate a sitemap.xml? You got it. I need to hack the auth system so it works with our current passwordless auth (sends an email login link), and a few other customizations (setup loggers, prometheus/loki, etc). Overall, Django appears to be impressive. Any suggestions appreciated.
Django’s real killer feature is the admin site. With a bit of customization, it can be super useful for internal use. (i.e. within your team or company)
It also mixes well with their ORM, because keys can be strings like field__startswith, etc.
The big problem for me in writing complex application with Flask is the circular dependencies.
Traveling to Berlin for PyConDE
Few weeks ago I swapped the Golf GTI for a Fiesta ST, so heading out on a mini road trip through North Wales for breakfast in Betws-y-Coed before heading to the coast to help my mate finish getting his yacht ready for sailing. She relaunched last weekend and didn’t sink. Winter maintenance work was a success!
Also have a couple of blog post ideas on the todo list. We’ll see if I get anything written, but things are percolating around the noggin for sure. April isn’t the latest I’ve posted a first post of the year, I’ve got another three months in hand to clear that hurdle.
I am going to try and revive the gaming PC that my kid uses, again. I built it a couple years ago (with the excuse “hey we can get masks from Newegg if I order some gear”) and it worked great for a while and then stopped powering on; when you hit the power switch, things turn on for a split second and then go dead.
I moved it to my office to work on it and it mysteriously started working again; a couple days later it stopped working. I figured that the problem was something was loose and took it completely apart and put it back together, and it worked for a few months, and now it’s back to not working. I hate PCs.
Flaky PSU or motherboard, alas.
Sleeping. Been working my ass off at a product demo all week, and we’re gonna do it again next week except bigger and more.
Curious what your product is if you aren’t tired of talking about it by now!
My company makes drone autonomy software, we’re showing it off installed on a long-range transport drone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Th7A16YVb94
That is amazing!
