I develop code in Go for just a few months now, but I learned to like it. It’s fast, simple and can produce static binaries. In contrast to Java (the language I have to use for a lot of university and work stuff) it does many things much simpler. And I think Go is really easy to learn, also thanks to its good documentation.

There are over a million Go developers worldwide, and companies all over the globe are looking to hire more. In fact, people often tell us that learning Go helped them get their first jobs in the tech industry. In the end, what we’re most proud of about Go is not a well-designed feature or a clever bit of code but the positive impact Go has had in so many people’s lives. We aimed to create a language that would help us be better developers, and we are thrilled that Go has helped so many others.

Delete Twitter?

Some time ago I decided to unfollow everyone on Twitter and put all accounts I previously followed into a list. This gave me the advantage to read tweets in a chronological order and not rely on what Twitter thinks is interesting to me or see “recommended” tweets. Since then I reduced my Twitter usage a lot. But that’s not the only reason, I’m thinking about deleting my account. Twitter is not fun anymore.
I can now make use of Micropub to post on my blog! More information: I am in search for an easier way to blog from the go for quite some time now. Recently, I implemented a web-based form to submit new posts using the API of my self-hosted Gitea. While that worked, it was still not optimal. I already heard of Micropub before, since I joined the IndieWeb, but I was always a bit scared of complexity to develop my own solution.

I am so grateful!

A little over two months ago I got together with my best friend (whom I have known for several years) and since then my life has not been what it used to be. And I don’t mean that negatively. Finally, there is something in life that is worth going through hard times, coping with stress, passing exams and so on. Finally a reason to actually plan the time and do the tasks instead of just procrastinating to have more time for nice things.
In my previous post about the operating systems I use, I wrote: And although it uses the Gnome desktop, it has some custom modifications I would like to deactivate (since I started using Fedora Silverblue, I got to love the stock Gnome desktop). I didn’t know (and I honestly didn’t searched for solutions before), but it’s possible to use Vanilla GNOME with Wayland on Ubuntu. It’s just a matter of one command:
