Well that was fun. Migrating a pretty simple javascript react project to typescript took two evenings because of a rouge

const React = require('react');

line causing a smattering of errors that, in retrospect, make sense -- but in no way helped me track that down.

Tomorrow: actually make progress.

Hello TypeScript, why you're a fun thing to learn tonight!

We sometimes wonder if the garage is closed. Well, now there’s a micro controller keeping track of if our garage door is up or down and posting to Slack.

Switching between reading a book on Digital Signal Processing and a podcast with folks ranking different milks ( overcast.fm/+FFDai5faI ) is a pretty solid combination... right?

Wanted an iOS app to exist, but I haven't built an iOS app in many years -- and last time was using Objective-C (2011-ish?). Started learning Swift around 24 hours ago and I have a basic app that does a minimum of what I want already.
