I’ve never really done test-driven development (TDD). But Advent of Code offers the perfect opportunity for that, because there is already an example input and an example result. So it is possible to create a test first and program until the test passes.

It’s time again to ask my followers: I have my homepage jlelse.dev, but I’m thinking about using jlelse.com for a more professional and appealing website about me. I can program, but my design skills are somewhat limited. What should I use to design and create the site? I used Carrd a couple of years ago. But are there any other recommendations?

First experience with my new unlimited mobile phone contract while traveling: The phone hotspot works much better than the ICE (German high speed train) WiFi usually does. At most, there are small interruptions in tunnels, but otherwise surfing, writing e-mails, and listening to music work perfectly. Even remote programming works. It was worth it…

Today GoBlog got the option to configure your own map tile server. So not only standard OpenStreetMap is possible, but also Stamen Toner for example. Fits much better to my blog aesthetics, right? (See the map page.)
