Kind notes

 Note

I both really like the idea of, and am terrified of, not having a staging environment. Having seen how some folks treat their staging environment, I'd never wish users to experience that in production! #TechNott

 Note

Is anyone at #TechNott interested in #PHP? You're in luck, because Thursday is #PHPMiNDS and we've got the awesome @akrabat speaking about Slim 4: PHP's Microwebframework

More details on the website https://phpminds.org/ and the Meetup https://www.meetup.com/PHPMiNDS-in-Nottingham/events/268999773/

 Note

Very excited for the talks tonight at #TechNott - @NickyWrightson's talk at #DevOpsDays London was really insightful for how to run on-call right, and I've heard great things about the talk from @adactio and @rem - hope to see y'all there!

 Note

Not having my headphones at work yesterday really ruined my productivity - it's quite interesting how much I rely on them, and music, to help me focus

 Note

It may not be ready by the #IndieWeb newsletter tomorrow, but I'm hoping my web-based Micropub media endpoint upload client will be live this weekend - exactly what would fit for https://jlelse.blog/micro/2020/01/2020-01-01-frviz/

 Note

I was hoping to hack together a little thing to proxy multipart form requests via #Netlify functions this evening, but unfortunately it looks like Netlify doesn't support it, and it's less easy with AWS Lambda so I guess Spring Boot it is!

 Note

Just bought my #DevOpsDays London ticket! There are still £99 super early bird tickets at https://devopsdays.org/events/2020-london/welcome/

It's an awesome conference, which I'd thoroughly recommend - you can read about my time at https://www.jvt.me/tags/devopsdays/

 Note

Has there been a patch for #ApexLegends that I wasn't aware of? It appears that everyone has been nerfed because I'm magically able to not die instantly in games 😅 it can't be that I'm getting better

 Note

#BirdsOfPrey was awesome. I'm writing some notes because I'm going to do an actual review of it, because it was so good but has had some pretty bad press. Feeling like I could go rob a police station with a confetti cannon right now!

 Note

Just got my first credit card! So of course the best way to prove whether I've got a high enough credit limit is to go to Five Guys 😂🍔

 Note

Folks using #Jenkins, how do you manage your jobs? Only through the UI? Or using #JobDsl? If not the latter, would you like a talk on being able to track all your jobs in repo and peer-review changes? While being able to quickly spit out duplicate jobs

 Note

The smell coming from Annie's Burger Shack as I walked past it is not helping my hunger!

 Note

Been a pretty good start to the day - woke up naturally with Hue, closed off a couple of stories just after standup, and spent the rest of the morning sending unsolicited positive feedback to colleagues and requesting some for myself - amazing what a good start to the day does for you!

 Note

I've just published the headlines of my #Spotify data for 2011-2019 on my site - https://www.jvt.me/series/music-in-review/ - organised per year, but also with a view across the whole decade! Enjoy a look into my music data #IndieWeb

 Note

I've found that the food tonight at #TechNott was even better than usual - is it maybe because there wasn't a huge queue to fight to the precious food?? I guess we won't know until next month, when the Spring Season starts!

 Note

I really hope that someone filmed @MrAndrew doing the announcement for #TechNott's seasons - the pace he went through the many awesome speakers lined up was so much fun - a very Andrew explosion of content! 😅

 Note

As @MrAndrew mentioned at #TechNott, @CapitalOneUK are hiring! Come have a chat about #LifeAtCapitalOne - we've got Software Development, Software Testing, Infrastructure Engineering, Management, Cyber Security and more at https://jobs.capitalone.co.uk

 Note

A (good) night's sleep is seriously the best #debugging trick you can use - managed to get a regex right the first time that was kicking my ass all evening yesterday!

 Note

I've just received the #Spotify data I'd requested in https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/12/29/spotify-wrapped-data-request/ and am going to enjoy looking through all the data I've got from 2012-2020! I may even publish my own "Year in Review" of music.

 Note

Pretty happy with first few games of #ApexLegends season 4 - some good changes to things, map is different and I even played a couple of games with Revenant 💀 - not sure I've sussed him out yet though

 Note

Reminder that on Wednesday its #HomebrewWebsiteClub Nottingham! I hope to see you there to work on your personal website - be it new or existing https://events.indieweb.org/2020/02/homebrew-website-club-nottingham-8IgcYeAQhIKX

 Note

So I sorted my Webmention sending issue after an incredibly frustrating day of fighting with Jackson parsing my XML sitemap. I'm still not sure what the issue was, as I've ended up replacing my POJO with another one, but 🤷🏽‍♂️ at least Webmentions are sending again

 Note

Woops, looks like I broke my Webmention sending yesterday when I upgraded all my versions of Spring / Spring Boot. That'd explain why things haven't syndicated to Twitter today. Film time now, so will fix tomorrow!

 Note

I interact a lot with Twitter from my website, and as such the interactions you see are i.e. "Like of @indiewebcamp's tweet" which isn't super helpful. So I've just added the ability to mark up my interactions with some context of what the post was so it's eaiser to see without navigating there.

This is using the awesome https://granary.io/ and will hopefully make reading Twitter interactions through my site much nicer!

You can see https://www.jvt.me/mf2/2020/02/ihnc5/ for an example of what it'll look like (including photos!), and https://indieweb.org/reply-context for more info from around the #indieweb

 Note

Very interesting podcast about #OpenBanking and #StrongCustomerAuthentication. It's nice to hear some other folks' thoughts on what it looks like both as a bank and as a third party https://fi.11fs.com/573 #FintechInsider

 Note

Hope folks going to #fosdem this weekend have a great time. I decided not to go this year but will have a look through the talks and watch live/once they're uploaded

 Note

I've just updated https://www.jvt.me/posts/2019/12/19/meetup-mf2-hfeed/ with a note that last night, https://aaronparecki.com helped me get the h-feed support in https://aperture.p3k.io/ over the line!

It required some changes to return a valid parsed-MF2 location which it didn't up until now (https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/meetup-mf2/-/merge_requests/5)

And I also made a change to render the HTML description from Meetup actually show as HTML for the consumer, as well as rendering a plaintext format (https://gitlab.com/jamietanna/meetup-mf2/-/merge_requests/6)

 Note

Woops, after spending ~40 mins working on getting my Webmention notifications (https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/01/12/webmention-notifications/) to send the author's avatar in the notification, I've now realised the Pushover API doesn't support it. Doh!

 Note

I've just updated https://www.jvt.me/posts/2020/01/12/webmention-notifications/ to mention that I've replaced Pushbullet with Pushover for my Webmention notifications service! Looking forward to getting lots of lovely push notifications, again!
