With the ongoing decline of the climate emergency, as well as the increased usage of cryptocurrencies, there's definitely something to think about in terms of how we improve our impact on this dying world
I've shared quite a bit in the past with how great #Gousto has been for our cooking and eating habits, especially over the pandemic, so if you're interested in giving it a go
JAMIE21201650 has an especially good deal for 60% off your first box, plus 30% off for a whole month (and we get a little money for the referral)
Think of my new NPM package that provides a test harness for #Spectral API linting as a holiday gift to y'all https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/12/23/spectral-test-harness/
Anyone thinking of / already using #Spectral for their API linting? I've written up how I've created a test harness to #TDD new API rules into our standards at https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/12/22/spectral-jest/
What are folks' thoughts about using a password manager i.e. KeepassXC to store TOTP data (not the recovery codes) for MFA? My initial thought is that this sounds like a Bad Idea, but not sure if I'm being a bit too paranoid?
Another thing you can now do with #Wiremock 2.32.0 is run your stubs from the classpath, instead of needing to store them outside of a standalone JAR - it's been on my list to document how to do it for 6 months, and I'm glad it's now supported https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/12/02/gradle-wiremock-standalone-stubs/
Very excited that we've now got support in #Wiremock 2.32.0 to run without the underlying HTTP Server (http://wiremock.org/docs/running-without-http-server/) so you now don't need to use my workaround in https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/04/29/wiremock-serverless/ 🤓
A few surprises in this year's #SpotifyWrapped (https://open.spotify.com/wrapped-2021/share-bd296b9dba6c4dcfbb3206f7d9ffa4a2-1080x1920?si=BlK7K4mqQj2G4uaA6J3NnA) with @Phaeleh snatching the top spot from a decade of @UppermostMusic and 59501 minutes of music!
If y'all aren't already following Brandur Leach's thoughts on their site, please go ahead and do it. I've spent the morning going through quite a few really well written and informative posts, and have remembered there's a good back catalogue for the Nanoglyph newsletter too which is excellent. Some really great learnings from years of building awesome stuff, thanks for it all!
Moving over to #Neovim was such a good idea - not only are the Async, LSP and general UI improvements making it a nicer experience, but I'd completely forgotten about being able to embed Neovim into other UIs, so this is being written from Neovim embedded into Firefox using the very awesome firenvim project
What do you call a DJ who loves garlic mayo? Steve Aioli
Don't know about everyone else, but I find it really difficult to find out / remember what versions of libraries are installed on the AWS Lambda runtime - luckily I've blogged about it so you don't have to remember! https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/11/17/aws-lambda-java-runtime/ (although JDK11 still needs a bit of help)
It's been a few days without y'all reading my ✨ Opinions ✨ so here's one about #OAuth2 client credentials, and why you shouldn't use a client secret https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/11/09/avoid-client-secret/
Do I know anyone who's got an XPS13 9310/9305? I'm looking to upgrade my 9343 to a 9305 and wondered what Linux support was like 👀
First trip to the office today, excited to meet my new colleagues and see the White Chapel Building where we're based!
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
First day nerves, but very excited to get started at the Data Standards Authority!
Self care is your first back massage in 18 months followed by a free McDonald's chocolate milkshake 😋
I like that Night Teeth looks like Collateral but ✨ Halloween ✨
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/
Is it just me or has the Infinidash hype train run out?
Welp, I'm sure I'll regret this, but I'm publishing my salary/compensation history publicly now!
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!
Well, it's official - I'm leaving Capital One and am joining the Cabinet Office in October 😱 https://www.jvt.me/posts/2021/08/19/joining-cabinet-office/
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?
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
Just had a power cut in Mapperley Park 😳
