My Pluralsight Course is here! After a lengthy Winter vacation of recording and a few weekends of editing I present to you my Pluralsight AWS Developer Course - An Introudction to Lambda

Howdy! I’ve moved my site to Hugo! I’ve also deployed it using AWS’ static site hosting.

Here’s a few easy aliases to deploy your static hugo blog to AWS

alias myblog="cd ~/Documents/myblogfolder"
alias deployblog="myblog && hugo && aws s3 sync ./public s3://your-aws-website-bucketn && rm -r ./public"

I’m announcing my first attempt at a tool to help with Diceware master password adoption. I’ve created a single-page HTML file to quickly generate Diceware passwords from dice rolls. Here is a link to the source. And here is the live project. You can tweet at me if you have suggestions, improvements, or requests.

I put together this outline to help folks transitioning from a non-software job towards Web Development/Front End Development/UX Design. I’m no expert in the field, but I have spent a lot of time documenting and using a variety of free resources and I hope they’re useful for you. This doesn’t really dig into the steps to take to become a “full stack” developer but it’s a decent way to get your toes wet.

Thanks to all the great folks who came over to Wharton tonight for the Python User Group. I had a great time presenting and then learning about PySpark from Monetate. Some folks wanted the slides to my talk so I’ve included them Here. You’re also welcome to checkout the code I used on Github. You can also see the live project (hosted by github). PRs welcome! Lastly, some of you were curious about other ‘formulas’ for password creation.
