Kind notes

 Note

First trip to the office today, excited to meet my new colleagues and see the White Chapel Building where we're based!

 Note

For anyone interested in trying out #Gousto (i.e. via https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/07/07/four-months-gousto/ which still holds true) there's a better referral deal on for the next couple of weeks with JAMIE21201650 - get 60% off your first box, and 30% off the rest of the month

 Note

Self care is your first back massage in 18 months followed by a free McDonald's chocolate milkshake 😋

 Note

It's Lighting Talks at #TechNott tonight, which is always a super fun evening - I'll be talking about #salary and some of the Korma-level spice that's come out of my post about it last month https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/09/09/public-salary-history/

 Note

Today is the #Wiremock project's 10th birthday! That's a wonderful milestone to hit - thanks for all the work you've been doing over the years Tom Akehurst - it's made a huge difference for the way I've built software over the years!

 Note

First day back at #CapitalOne's offices in Nottingham after a whopping 545 days is a very weird feeling. Got some freebies, a free breakfast, and our first hybrid standup. Been nice to just wave to people, and I'm looking forward to making the most of the day!

 Note

Is the Meetup.com GraphQL API down? I'm seeing HTTP 502s with x-amzn-errortype: InternalServerErrorException. Was hoping to start a migration from REST to the GraphQL API but I guess not!

 Note

Has anyone written any (preferably permissive licensed) Java code that parsed Gherkin using the official java-gherkin library and gets an AST together that includes both steps and comments all in one place?

 Note

How is it 2021 and #Slack's Android app doesn't open links to Slack? So frustrating not being able to follow a link from someone!

 Note

Do I know anyone on the #Jenkins team who'd be able to give a hand with getting https://github.com/jenkinsci/job-dsl-plugin/pull/1232 merged? Core maintainers are currently taking a break, but this would fix a common issue folks have

 Note

#GitHub Copilot seems pretty interesting - licensing issues aside - but I wonder if a better angle is adding test coverage rather than production code? Most folks find writing tests (especially on less loved codebases) more difficult than the code

 Note

I had some fun using the open standard #Microformats2 to update my CV to be machine-parseable - you can check it out at https://hire.jvt.me and there's a bit more info on https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/05/25/microformats-resume/

 Note

Does anyone have an example of deprecating a media type from an #OpenApi spec? I've got a versioned media type that is being replaced with the new one, but can't seem to find any examples of how to do it 🤔

 Note

I'm looking forward to the #IndieWeb pop-up session tonight (https://events.indieweb.org/2021/05/webmentions-beyond-webmention-io-zG4JpHhZShVA) to talk about how we can improve the #Webmention experience for new IndieWeb folks

 Note

#Kubernetes peeps - is there a way to mount a Secrets volume as read-write and allow an application to write to it? I'm migrating code that expects a filesystem to persist secret changes to and am not sure if I'm trying to avoid rewriting too much?

 Note

Is anyone using #gitlab's Auto DevOps with a Maven/Gradle multimodule project? Thinking about maybe giving it a go, with deployment to GKE for ease of management of my services, but wanna find out if its suitable first, and how to pass secrets that would be in an application.properties on the host. Or I guess, do I need to rewire the app instead?

 Note

Nothing like a but of Phaeleh to soothe my soul while doing a stressful shop where it's busy, and there's a tonne of unmasked

 Note

Has anyone managed to use #Wiremock in a Java app and call the handlers without needing an HTTP server before? I've got it using Reflection but would prefer alternatives if possible 😅

 Note

Has anyone written #Java #Cucumber tests using cucumber-picocontainer recently? Looking at how to set up an object for a class that you don't control? Finding I can't easily instantiate it

 Note

Hey #ChefFriends how do you generally manage syncing a cookbook between Supermarket and #Chef Server? Wondered if there's anything currently out there to pull the cookbook and it's dependencies, in the right order to Server?

 Note

Reminder that it's #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham tonight! I hope to see you there at 1730 for some website stuff, and maybe playing around with some of the stuff I mentioned at #TechNott! https://events.indieweb.org/2021/04/homebrew-website-club-nottingham-7uyCl6f2j0vV

 Note

Had a fun bug tonight with the new #ApexLegends "Second Chance" mode that, as I was being respawned, my team was wiped, but me and one teammate still respawned. I couldn't control anything but they could and managed to fight a bit longer even though we were dead 😂

 Note

Thanks to everyone who joined me last night at #TechNott for my talk about the #IndieWeb - you can find the recording of the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFXOZww5mmE - I'll also look at getting it uploaded to Archive.org for longevity!

 Note

Happy #TechNott day all! Looking forward to seeing you later to hear a bit more about what the #IndieWeb is, and the ways you can get involved owning your data and building cool things for yourself https://www.technottingham.com/events/tech-nottingham-april-2021
