Dynatrace, New Relic, Selenium, Puppet, Ansible, GoCD, Jenkins, Docker, NGINX...
CouchDB, MongoDB, MySQL, Solr, Hadoop, Cacti, Nagios, Ceph, DRBD, Corosync...




Preferred Environment

The most amazing...

...thing was creating a Bootstrap-friendly continuous deployment (using CloudFormation and Ansible) that served jobs managed by a CM with their own release cycles.

Perform OCR on Image Playlists and Fetch Songs with Go
From time to time, one might stumble upon a neat music playlist, evidently picked with love, patience, and surgical precision that's sadly encapsulated in an image. The only downside of this approach is that, obviously, you can’t select songs and copy/paste them into YouTube…at least not without a few lines of code.

Bootstrap Karpathy RNN
There are plenty of resources on machine learning and neural networks, and many interactive playgrounds where you can learn and test out ML concepts; comes to the rescue—installing required system packages, fetching everything Torch-related, removing the user inquiry from install, retrieving Lua modules, and finally cloning Karpathy’s char-rnn repository.

Count Valid Words on Registration Plates with Elixir
How many valid words can we glue together with letters from registration plates codes and dictionary file—backed with Elixir, poolboy, and a tiny bit of Go and Docker as a tech stack?

In-house Dropbox Alternative with Enhanced Privacy
Our data is never safe and the only thing we can do is to make it harder for someone to obtain it. This open-source project aims to resolve privacy issues observed in Dropbox, Sync, OneDrive by giving you full control of your data, completely secured with AES 256-bit encryption.

Butchering Bootstrap
Although Bootstrap is awesome, it does require a bit of work around making it faster. In this post, numerous tools are used to actually move away to pure React and Flexbox with Google Lighthouse stats continuously providing performance measurements.
