Blog retrospective and update


I haven’t touched this blog for 5 years due to various reasons. I thought it would be entertaining to briefly summarize how projects and various tech concepts mentioned here stood the test of time.

I also decided to move the blog to Hugo and Netlify hosting. It’s an elegant solution and writing posts in chosen text editor is much better experience than clumsy Blogger interface. Markdown is okay, and although it’s probably not the best text-based document format out there, it doesn’t distract from writing. Netlify platform is polished and solid, and setting it up took me below 1h (with domain and certs). I certainly recommend it to any person with enough programming knowledge to set up Hugo and a Github repository.
