I Hate Technology

Recently I had to update my email on all my accounts, keys, and more, and this quite simple to do, you simply open up a terminal, run the following commands and you’re able to add a new email/uid to the GPG key: gpg --edit-key <key id here> gpg> adduid gpg> uid <uid here> gpg> primary gpg> save But there comes a large amount of pain and frustration when it comes anything related to git if you want to remove a email or uid from a key....

Why I Use Sourcehut

A few people I know were asking why I prefer Sourcehut over more popular Git hosting services such as Github or even Gitlab. There’s a few reasons why I’ve started using it and prefering it more than more popular services, and this post should hopefully clear up why exactly I prefer to use it over other services as of recently. Open Source vs Proprietary GitHub (and implicitly Microsoft) are obviously trying to provide a service to host open source projects, but to me there’s one fatal flaw with what they’re doing, or rather how they’re doing it....

Why You Should Learn Zig

There is a lot of programming languages in the world, why create another, or more relevantly, why learn another? Today we’re going to be discussing the programming language named Zig and why I have fallen in love with it. Let’s start from the beginning, Zig is meant to “fix” a lot of issues other programming languages have, a good video to watch is The Road to Zig 1.0 by Andew Kelley, which goes into a lot of the nitpicking on other languages such as C, Rust, D, and others....

Stop Learning Everything

One mistake I’ve seen people make, especially newcomers to devops or programming in general, is they try to learn to much. I don’t mean in a specific time frame either, I mean overall. They end up learning 50 different languages and/or tools, when in reality they’re going to only end up using using at most 5, especially in their career. I know this because it’s something I’ve personally done, I ended up learning so many languages, tools and more, that I have per-say “cluttered” my brain with information that probably won’t be used, and this is problematic, especially at scale....

Why Is Vscode So Popular

There are a lot of editor’s in today’s age, most popular ones being Atom, VIM (and it’s derivatives), Emacs, Sublime Text, Notepad++, the list goes on, but one seems to have “taken the crown” since it’s release, and that happens to be Visual Studio Code, otherwise known as VSCode, but why exactly is it so popular, what benefits does it have over other editors, let’s discuss exactly that. Ecosystem One major upside VSCode has over other editors is it’s large extension and theme ecosystem, there is editors like Atom that also have a large ecosystem of themes and extensions, but from what I can tell, VSCode’s has grown massively and has probably, from my knowledge grown larger than any other editor’s ecosystem by a fair margin....
