New Project Announcement

28 Nov 2021 | 1 minute read

It’s been a year since my last post, which was kind of expected, and also means it’s probably time for another.

Big news! I’ve started a new project!

One that I’m feeling pretty committed to finishing. As far as such a project can be finished.

My uncle is a physics teacher, and has requested some software that manages equipment ordering for the lab techs to fulfill. There are existing solutions, but apparently not great ones.

Anyway, I’m not particularly interested in what the software actually does, but I’m going to have a go at writing the whole thing from scratch as if it were a big project. All the bells and whistles, except I’ll do everything.

I more want to use this as a project to put together things I’ve learnt at Tessian and to try my hand at setting up, and writing things I’m maybe not so experienced with.

Some examples of things to come (I hope):

  • Microservices!
  • Separate authentication server
  • Terraform
  • GraphQL
  • React frontend
  • Bazel (at Tessian we use Pants but the naming makes troubleshooting hard, and I want to try something a bit more supported)
  • Continuous Integration / Deployment
  • Automated testing
