Creating Your Own Tools

One thing I’ve noticed in my devops career, either when working on my own project or a project for a company/startup is that there isn’t always a tool or library for your needs. This is one of the brilliant things about being in the open source community, is the ability to adapt and create what you need, when you need it. An example of this is recently I was setting up a Minecraft related thing, specifically Technic Solder and manually packaging and uploading the jar files of mods was extremely painful and tedious....

Why I prefer JavaScript over Python

Over the years I’ve been using Python less and less. This has become more and more apparent as my GitHub and other websites I store code on have little to no Python on them anymore.
