Node.js in Production

It is a partly sunny Sunday in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Currently I am waiting for my wife to get ready to go out for a walk. Yesterday it was cloudy and sprinkled on and off all day. Towards the end of the day it cleared up but we were not in the mood to walk given that we were watching movies at home.

Spoke on the phone with my youngest son. He and his wife were driving to Wisconsin from Indiana to check out a few homes today. He got a job in the area and the family is moving in a month or two. Seems like a house that matched their expectations came on the market last week and they are hoping will meet and exceed their expectations. Will find more about it later this afternoon when they drive back home. Continue reading “Node.js in Production”

Basic RESTful Service – Part II

It is a rainy and stormy day in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. All is well with rain, but I do shutdown my computers as soon as we get lightning. Have my computers connected via different power supplies, but on more than one occasion I have lost multiple components. So as soon as I hear thunder, I immediately shutdown and read until the storm subsides.

I worked in 2-hour blocks. At the end of the second block I went up and prepare tea. My wife and I have this morning ritual. What was unique today is that a rafter of wild turkeys was in our backyard. Last Friday the tom had two females and they were stopping traffic on the parkway. Today the rafter has grown to include seven females. There are several large parks and dozens of lakes and ponds in this area. We see turkeys year round.

Node.js Issue – RESOLVED

A couple days ago the temperature in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul rose up to 70 F. Yesterday the highs were in the upper 50s. Today the temp is going to go as high as 34 F and will be raining and snowing. Not sure how much snow and rain we will be getting. Hopefully things will not flood.

I am working with micro services and Node.js in order to streamline a storage server currently implemented by three monolith services. We will be going the hybrid route for a while. Eventually all will be implemented with Docker and possibly running on a public cloud (i.e., AWS or Azure). Continue reading “Node.js Issue – RESOLVED”

About JavaScript – Part I

This morning I received a message from a discussion forum for the Graph Analytics for Big Data from the University of California San Diego by Coursera. I completed the course last year.

I tend to post now and then when I really see a need. Since then at least three students have used the contents of the post and were kind enough to leave me a message. I do appreciate it. Hope it helps fellow students even if they were in a hurry and did not have time to leave a thank you note. Feels good, what can I say. Continue reading “About JavaScript – Part I”
