This is a common question any team/project will have to address — how to structure the knowledge we know of a project so that we are not missing things? Each project/application, of course, is different. But the overall is actually quite common. Here ...
Pandoc is awesome. I have been using it for the last six months now writing a reference architecture document for work. Here is some tips of how I'm using it.
Things that are specific to that document. This, thus, is context
This is a common trick. Say we have local machine (A), and a remote machine (B). If we can SSH from A→B, we can reroute browser traffic from A to B, much quicker than X-windows.
ssh -vv -ND ...
reveal.js is pretty awesome. I have been using it for the last 9 months now and love it. It was a bit of hassle to set it up initially. Once you have an example, yo can replicate and be productive ...
Finally a book on UML that makes sense to me (and is short enough so I was willing to read it, in one morning).
Milestone 1: requirement review
Everything starts with an analysis of the problem at hand. One thing
learned and I'd like to clarify is
Introduce tools to create screencast.
Django to REST
I have been building Django based web application for a while now. One design/request I get often is a REST API. Once the model data is exposed in REST, one can truly build a complete separate frontend ...
KVM is something new to me, and it sounds awesome. The experience I want to have is a local dev that I can copy & paste from some base image in case I forgot to take a snapshot at milestone. This way I feel comfortable to stand up a sandbox, try ...
The symptom is that typing jumps all over the place.
The idea here is to use
xinput command to tune finger sensitivity
values so to find a good balance. Also, we are to disable touch

Bye Bye GFW
The GFW is nothing but an anti-humanity instance that blocks knowledge transfer and information sharing in the 21st century when brain is the competition advantage and this gov decides to sacrifice all the future with a vain hope that creativity can continue to flourish while its citizens are excluded from ...
You got mail
After becoming an Emacs user for the last few months, I acquired a burning desire to migrate as much as my daily text editing activities into Emacs environment, in particular, emails.
Having tried offlineimap for a bit, I ended up battling its ...
What a wonderful editor!
I wouldn't even call it an editor because it can do so much beyond text editing. Still on the learning curve to get a grasp of what it can do in my daily development workflow. Here is to document the init.el that I'm ...

Deployment strategy for system architecture is centered around AWS services: EC2 for application server, RDS for database, and S3 for static files and media files. AWS does have message service as well. But to maintain a fair level of portability, I am not using that. Instead, vanilla message broker such ...
General system architecture
The word "system architect" has been puzzling to me. I was hired to be one at one point. But it was not a comfortable position. How much do we understand the business? What is the problem we are to solve? How does ...
DIY Pelican theme
Buildbot continuous integration setup
The whole point of quick development cycle is to shorten the path between a verbal or written requirement, and an actionable application that reflects an implementation of this requirement. Therefore, it becomes crucial to set up an CI environment not only to facilitate development and testing, but to enforce our ...
Crawler, TOR, and be a good web citizen
Many projects I have done involved harvesting data from public sites. Data crawling is an exciting business. On one hand, it is easy to develop a crawler these days. In the Python world, plenty tutorials will show you how to build a simple crawler using the Python urllib, or building ...
