In my last post, I mentioned the transition to Gridsome and it has been relatively pain free. I owe a lot of this to the existing community and the great list of starter resources. If a concept isn't explained or clear in the docs, chances are you can gain some insight from the various starters.
One particular concept I had a problem with right out of the gate was how to use markdown files from multiple directories. I started with the post type to handle /year/month/day/title routes but I wanted to move to an equivalent of the generic page type from Hexo ...

It's been over a year since my last post and while unfinished drafts don't count, I thought my blog was due for a change. The move from Octopress to Hexo was relatively uneventful but I found keeping up a little difficult. It wasn't completely on Hexo, I had tweaked things to a point that merging in changes over time became cumbersome and slow. In a previous post, I roughly mentioned the transition and a lot has happened to the web in over 3 years.
Static site generators like Hugo and Gatsby have picked up steam and the feature set of Gatsby, particularl ...

I wanted to mark what feels like an oasis in the desert of a long journey. During my last job search over 2 years ago, I
tired of what had become a disjointed resume update routine. Accomplish a task, go to the Word-document-as-one-true-source,

I yearned for one interchangeable format that allowed me to generate HTML, Word and PDF at the very least.
JSON Resume combined with resume-linkedin
seemed like a great fit. Unfortunately, due to recent Link ...

I said in my previous post that a lot can happen in 2 years.
In that time span I've:
Moved to using a MacBook and OSX.
OSX being very BSD-like makes it an prime target for web development. It isn't the second class citizen Windows
is in the Ruby or Node.js communities.
Transitioned away from .NET and don't really miss it. I do randomly play around with .NET core when possible but I
haven't actually built anything with it.
This was honestly very huge at the time but I still feel I made the right decision. Though Windows 10 is the
platform Windows 8 ...

A lot can happen in a little over 2 years...
In my last post, I
had proposed an attempt to tackle the FizzBuzz problem. PowerShell was done, PHP was barely started but I never pointed
to it in a subsequent post or finished what I wanted. The project url has
completed and checked solutions for PHP and Node.js. I had mentioned
b. F#, Objective-C, CoffeeScript, C/C++, Go, Dart, and Haskell are the planned languages I've mostly touched in passing or know about.,
as well as C#, Pascal, and Ruby but I may never get to them.
Shortly after that last post, I swit ...
