People have been asking how I made my little mailer on my website (go here and click on chat), so I figured I would just write it down…

Going through the process of renting your first server and setting up your first website is exciting! My first attempt at this was not ideal, I had my website frontend running off my server, as well as a little node express server that brought in SendGrid. To send the mail, my front end would ping the root of this server, and send me an email…. Like so (here was my node server):

This week I decided to challenge myself… to really dig deep. I wanted to write a blog post, but had no inclination towards any specific topic. So, in order to brain storm I did a “technic of ideation”, in which I write down things that I love and lo, the words “python calculus” were there on the page. “Is this even possible?” I asked myself, “sigh, maybe not today… I can’t handle a rabbit hole right now, I have things to do”.

In this world, there are few hills I am willing to die on…

and Vim being not only the best editor, but also one of the most powerful and multi-faceted tools for your work-flow on a computer computer is a hill that I, every time I interact with my computer, become more and more sure of…Quite simply, YES… the hype is real and I wish, someday, for you to join me on that hill.

Wait no, where are you going please come BAAAACCCCKK!!

The goal of this blog post (part 1 of 2) is not just to evangelize, proclaim and…

As someone who has gone through a boot-camp, and helped navigate
