Discoveries 26 Posts

Surfing around in the web is a daily routine every developer should have. Learning about new platforms, libraries or techniques is a must, due to the tremendous speed on our business. Stay current, all the time.

I’m a fan of RSS and I’m using Feedly to read my favourite blogs. Unfortunately RSS feeds is not so common anymore, due to Facebook and other social media giants, but I stay informed.

In this series I present some of the absolute pearls I found while reading. Stunning solutions or incredible tools, which I must first and foremost remember for myself, to try them out one day.

SV Wehen Wiesbaden 3 Posts

In 2023 I discovered football for myself, in the form of the club of my hometown Wiesbaden (Hesse, Germany). How it came to this I have described in the initial article “My Hometown, My Club” of this series, in which I report in loose order of my experiences and encounters in the stadium and around it.

A New Blog 18 Posts

Starting a new project is always exciting, especially when the building platform is totally new for oneself. As I started this blog with Hexo, I had a good experience with JavaScript and some with Node, but no with EJS, Lodash and some of the other libraries Hexo is using.

This series is a little technical diary, how I started the blog and implemented my needs one by one. Learning by doing. Maybe some of my solutions are valuable to somebody else,
who faces the same issues I had.

Great Finds 5 Posts

From time to time I stumble across software or related solutions that amaze me for their elegance, cleverness or usefulness. Mostly no big solutions in terms of line of code or something like that, but great in terms of the idea or the implementation of its creator(s).

In this series I blog about those pearls, first and foremost, to remember them for me as well. A simple bookmark would not be appropriate.

Software development is the art of automation … because Developers are lazy. Manual work steps quickly end in writing scripts. But sometimes the effort is not justified or it is simply impossible to automate something, because of OS barriers or other show stoppers. Then it is better to optimize und document the manual steps.

In this series I want to share you some step-by-step instructions of various topics I stumbled upon in the past. My processes shown here are of course highly individual and mainly meant for me, but maybe someone has a hint I haven’t thought of yet or is inspired to set up something similar.

IndieWeb 3 Posts

I work in the IT industry, so it’s perhaps not surprising that I’m not a fan boy of Facebook and other social media giants. You don’t pay with money, but with your data.

A few years ago, a few protagonists like Aaron Parecki founded an initiative called IndieWeb, which describes a counter design in terms of blogs, which I think is worth supporting and which I write about in this series from time to time.
