Week Notes 24#06

  • Monday was doing a few bits at work ahead of being off for a couple of days, and then finalising my talk + blog post before the big day
  • My week was largely taken up by State of Open Con, which was great!
    • My talk went well, and although I was in one of the bigger tracks, I had about the same sort of numbers as some of the smaller tracks which was nice. Looking forward to sharing the video when it's out
    • Was cool to hear someone - doing a talk about SBOMs in government - had already tried to use dependency-management-data, but that they'd not found it worked quite for some of the use cases they needed, which appears to be due to a misunderstanding by me around how folks may be continually building + layering their SBOMs, instead of having one just "done"
    • I'll be doing more of a writeup soon ™️
    • Met a number of new folks - including a couple I'd only ever seen/heard on social media or podcasts - as well as seeing some folks I've not seen for a while, which was nice 😊
    • Took it easier on Wednesday morning and treated myself to Eggslut 😋 and was very appreciative that they gave me some free hashbrowns too, which were very 😋
  • After listening to a podcast on dependency freshness I finally got around to looking at Libyear and added support into dependency-management-data - it's flagged some interesting data, but I think I need to rethink how I recommend using Ecosyste.ms due to performance concerns
  • I was mentally a bit beat so took a few days off doing Octordle, but at the weekend caught up after I felt a bit refreshed
  • Now State of Open Con is out of the way, I've been able to start thinking about me being on Changelog and Friends this coming week 😱 I've got a Google Doc I've been putting trains of thought that we may want to follow
  • Did a last lesson with Trevor on the motorway, so I could have a safe-ish introduction to going zoom zoom
    • A bit nerve wracking, my first time in 5th (and then 6th!) gear, but before long I was happily overtaking and changing lanes at 70mph
    • Very glad I've done it, especially as the weather wasn't perfect, but j
  • Had some good chats at the TODO Group touchpoint chat on Friday
  • Bit disappointed to have finished Cat Snack Bar's levels, and so am waiting for the next levels to be created, which means I'm kinda stuck and it's much less engaging 😅 The event levels are super slow working, and the event in between them will be wasted given I can't progress any further
  • Did a big shop on Friday, enjoying the freedom that having the car means and going in with the "what would I want to buy with my own money", and it turns out, a lot 🙈 But also got pizza for Friday and a Valentine's dinner for Saturday which was 🥰
  • On the way back from Asda picked up our first tank of petrol
  • Drove us for a roast at the Larch Farm which was 😋
  • The old-ish kitchen spatula has finally died - after being rather floppy for some time - and fortunately we've got a newer one that I've been preferring for some time anyway
  • Confirmed that I'm speaking at TechFast in a couple of weeks and already wondering how I'm going to wake up that early 😹
  • Cleaned up the CI setup for oapi-codegen's repos, as well as getting it building on Go 1.22
  • Updated dependency-management-data to be on Go 1.22, too
  • Was nice to see Carol this afternoon for a bit
  • Started looking at net/http-only support for oapi-codegen

Watched:

  • SNL (on YouTube)
  • The Bear
  • The Good Witch
  • The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
