Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I was an avid user of GitHub Copilot during the technical preview phase. Apparently, as many as 1.2 million developers used Copilot. But now Copilot is out of beta and suddenly costs money.

(Smart Home) Automation with Node-RED

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Yesterday I expanded the memory in my home and code server to 16 GB and wondered what I could do with all the resources this server provides me.

Visit in the office

Published on in 💬 Micro

But everything worked at the office and when the internet worked again at home, this exceptional experience was already over and I went back again.
