  • Project Report: Orchestrating a Go application & provisioning a Vagrant box to serve it!

    Go Application

    Here is a sample Go application which creates a connection with Redis data structure store. The app increments a counter, on every new incoming request & retains the count.

    Setting up the app

    • Use make build to compile the binary.
    • Set the environment variables:
      • DEMO_APP_ADDR: Address where the app should listen to
      • DEMO_REDIS_ADDR: Address where...

    Okay, finally I’m here writing something technical. I’m still not sure what’s gonna be the flow but I’m keeping my hopes high (or otherwise I'll strike it once I'm done XD).

    Actually this post is gonna be my talk-notes for the Liz Rice’s talk What Have Namespaces Done for You Lately? So, everything written later in the post is entirelly credited to Liz Rice who in-turn thanks Julian Friedman...

  • The first some Photographs!

    June 5, 2020

    Apart from the daily office working hours, nowadays, I’m devoting a good part of my day, actually working on constructing some good habits in myself (oh yea, definitely, meanwhile improving the bad ones).

    To me, reading books, writing morning pages, daily journal, taking occassional hand-written notes and doing my meditation, I consider all of these as the best things, that I’ve built & earned over past few months. And...

  • My experience applying to Outreachy (back in september, 2019)!

    May 23, 2020

    May 23, 2020

    I always saw this incomplete, half written draft about my experience applying to Outreachy internship, lying in one corner of my folder. At first I thought I should just delete it because I’m already done with the internship & I’ve already written my wrap-up post describing a little about my experience. But then I just couldn’t do it only.

  • Updates: talk on github actions, upgrade to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS!

    May 10, 2020

    Too tired to write a detailed technical blogpost today. So, will try to keep it short & simple, and just writing about some updates here.


    I gave my first ever talk yesterday. It finally happened! (this is a note for myself :P).

    I procastinated for how long I don’t even remember now. Even I don’t know if it was just procastination or was accompanied by my some more lame thoughts...

  • Custom GCP type provider for automating `VPC Network Peering` creation!

    April 27, 2020

    April 27, 2020

    Yesterday, I wrote a post around writing custom GCP type providers.

    That post basically provided a solution to one of the problems I faced while deploying a resource (a private dataproc cluster with a Presto installation on it) on GCP for which there was no official GCP type provider available.

    Today’s post is just an extension with a similar use-case, where again, I needed to write a custom GCP type provider,...

  • Automating private dataproc cluster deployment having Presto Installation (on GCP)!

    April 26, 2020

    April 26, 2020

    A few weeks back, I was working on writing automation templates, for achieving a one click deployment of the entire Atlan stack, on Google Cloud Platform(GCP).

    And writing automation templates here, basically, meant writing Infrastructure as Code (IaC).

    Here, the good part is that GCP has its own internal tool/software, called deployment-manager, for writing Infrastructure-as-Code(IaC). It supports automation using Jinja & Python templates.

    I chose to write all my templates...

  • I commit to writing on this blog fortnightly!

    April 11, 2020

    I was lazy!

    And I didn’t write anything here (for a very long time, and I know it’s nothing good to brag about).

    But because I should write for my own goodness,

    I commit to writing on this blog at least for once every 2 weeks.

    I know it’s doable, but I do break the streak very easily. I write with a nice frequency for a while and then stop it eventually...

  • An experience that might help you!

    March 06, 2020

    March 06, 2020

    I thought I should share it here. It might help someone like me. :)

    Oh no, I’m not saying you’re not smart enough to get a job all by yourself, I just meant for someone who might be stuck because of some missing help.

    So, I am pasting here one of my replies from the Outreachy zulip chat conversations.

    Hi, I missed the chat. But I have an...
