Recent twts from prologic

#wf37oda prologic > (#yh3j5iq) Running prologic/static on it will work nicely and consume very little in the way of resources πŸ˜… I use this for all my static site hosting needs πŸ˜‚

@ocdtrekkie Yeah it’s actually something I want to build something around too. Something a bit like what Github Pages does. I self-host Gitea but it has no support for this. It’s relatively easy to do yourself, but it would be nice if there was an β€œapp” that just did this, and ways to shove shit online easily.

#bqxlviq prologic > I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😒 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

@lyse I found this article last night as I was trying to get to sleep (still not feeling 100%, sinuses still playing up 😒):

Best Practices for Testing in Go - FOSSA

Some good tips here in by a Jessica Black. I think I mostly agree with.

What do you think? πŸ€” Got anything else to share along these lines? πŸ™

@lyse Thanks bud πŸ€—

(#6lytfga) @abucci Can you chuck that up on our Wiki or create a PR and add it somewhere to like I dunno contrib or deployment? πŸ™

@mckinley Yeah thanks man I appreciate it! πŸ€— But right now I feel like my code sucks and I’ve been beaten 😒

I’m also worried about the β€œlack of unit tests” feedback too, because I am reminded of TDD When did it all go wrong – Where you see so many engineers do β€œunit tests” wrong πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ – If you don’t have time to watch this (rather long) video, TL;DR:

Unit tests test the behaviour of the system, or the API boundaries.
Unit tests should not test any implementation details.
They should let you refactor the implementation.

This was the original intent behind Unit Tests and AFAIK still is.

I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😒 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

Got the results of my take-home today and whilst there was some good feedback, man the criticisms of my work were harsh. I’m strictly not allowed to share the work I did for this take-home test, and I really can only agree with the β€œno unit tests” piece of the feedback, I could have done better there, but I was time pressured, sick and ran out of steam. I was using a lot of libraires to do the work so in the end found it difficult to actually think about a proper set of β€œUnit Tests”. I did write one (in shell) but I guess it wasn’t seen?

The other points were on my report and future work. Not detailed enough I guess? Hmmm πŸ€”

Am I really this bad? Does my code suck? πŸ€” Have I completely lost touch with software engineering? πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ

(#gqqqwca) I never get the whole English expression of β€œmoving something back an hour” or β€œMoving something forward an hour” it makes no logical sense to me the way people say it πŸ˜‚

#ayzujjq prologic > (#yems2fa) @abucci I think so. IndieAuth is what I'm a big fan of. All Yarn pods are IndieAuth providers for example (if there are any concumsers out there, we have to work on a consumer ourselves...)

@xuu Soonβ„’ We haven’t implemented it yet 😒

(#gqqqwca) @abucci Hehe πŸ˜‚ It was a hoke! You missed a great video call we had today. We hold a weekly video/audio call for the community if you’re interested πŸ€”

Hehe πŸ˜‚ Current version Git SHA 45.77.39.149 of GoNix boots up okay in Vultr which is good πŸ˜… But I’m missing a few things, and I’m not sure if networking came up πŸ˜‚

Need to build equivalents for:

  • ip addr show or ifconfig
  • ping

At the very least πŸ˜‚
