Happy new year 2019 🎉 and hello again! I’m giving my blog a reboot after the previous one got deleted by OpenShift 😣. Most of the previous posts are recoverable, I just need some time to recreate it using Markdown. This time, I’m choosing Hugo over Ghost as the engine. I got to know Hugo when contributing to GopherconSG’s website. The continous deployment using Netlify is very seamless, I just love the simplicity!
I’ve been using GitKraken client at work. However, true that a lot of so called senior engineers, think that using client is for novice engineers 😓… although I don’t deny that using git command line … looks 😎 🤓. So here’s my git tips stash. Using alias to shorten commands. Inside your .gitconfig, add these: [alias] d = diff br = branch –all ci = commit co = checkout dh = diff HEAD lg = log –graph –pretty=format:'%Cred%h.
Vapor 3 Preview
Gave a talk at iOS Dev Scout this month about Vapor 3 which is still in preview mode, thanks to Yeo Kheng Meng from Engineers.sg who helped recording my talk! Engineers.sg page: https://engineers.sg/video/vapor-3-preview-ios-dev-scout--2585 Vapor has come to my attention since RayWenderlich launched a full course on it and it’s authored by Tim Condon who’s the contributor of Vapor himself! The development is exciting, however, I find the async (yes, async everywhere) concept more difficult to understand compared to protocol oriented programming on iOS.
First Visit to Taipei!
Warning! This is quite a lengthy blog post full of pictures from my recent trip to Taipei. It was a great idea to stop by Taipei on the way to Houston 🛬! When I knew that we’re going to US again, I’m happy to plan a stop in Taipei for a few days (since Dora is also stationed there for a while) before heading over to Houston. And EVA Air is just perfect to accomodate my plan.
My Favorite Hawker Dishes
Note: This post will be updated from time to time Hawker center is the other name for neighborhood food court, coffee shop, that are not in the mall, in Singapore. Sims Vista Market When I started working in Singapore at Citylife Advertising, the office is located at Sims Drive. The area, despite being famous for so many foods along Geylang road on the other side, I didn’t have so many choices but to patronise Sims Vista Market.
