Finally, it's online after three years!

Hello, after three years, I was able to to get this site up and running and why three year, long story short I was very busy with getting my future sorted out.

But hey it’s in a better state now than it’s was a few years ago.

What am I going to do with this blog?

Probably write a lot of technical rambling. I still got a few things to implement and they are

  • A third party comment system (probably with disqus, a free one will do me.)
  • Implement highlight.js (it’s one of those nice to have.)
  • Ability to upload images using mongodb gridfs, as I’m using docker container I can’t just use the normal file system method. I really have to think about this one. For now I stick with a third party image service.
  • A portfolio system.

I will eventually implement them when I get the time and space to do it.

Why didn’t you use Wordpress?

Because I’m not a fan of Wordpress, I save that for another topic.

What language is this site written in?

Google Go, I find it easier to work with, especially when it’s comes to deployment, it’s just one compiled file plus JavaScript and stylesheets, it’s very easy to wrap them into a docker container. :)

Happy Blogging!
