This Wired article makes me think of @starstryder and helps me understand in retrospect why she and I have chatted so much about programming and tech over the years despite our very different fields. Given the data intensive nature of modern astronomy, this pressure to bring more capabilities from the realm of software development, from big data to machine learning, is hardly surprising. Kind of makes me want to find some volunteer opportunities to help where I can.
15.4K lines of code later, this new dev tool is done. Enough for now, anyway. Not sure why I needed to write it so badly, just did.
TFW your mad cackling at getting your code working invites trying to explain something that loses in the translation to non-coders.
Spent a large part of the day coding. A new dev tool for the day job. In Rust, building skills with it specifically for web apps.
So my choices for programming tasks recently have been a project using a stack I consider out-dated, a project that is effectively a UI developer’s playground, or personal projects. No wonder I end up working on the last pretty much all the time.
Is there a server framework that downloads a client bundle straight from npm so a server repo can be truly separate?
Is age catching up with me? Full stack seems harder these days. More like full stacks of stacks.
Diesel tutorial was quick. Now to the biggie, a web framework. Looking at Iron.
Breaking my Rust project into chunks. Finished some JWT coding over the weekend. Digging into the Diesel tutorial, now.
Getting further learning the Rust programming language lately because I finally have a project I want to port to it.
