Looking back at my first post, I realized that I published the first Rails version of this blog over 10 years ago. First, it’s incredible that I’ve been working with Rails for over 10 years, but secondly, I can’t believe I haven’t taken the time to rewrite this blog in something else.
When I moved this blog from Wordpress to Rails, I used it as an opportunity to start messing around with new Rails features and to run my own VPS. At the time, my day job was maintaining physical servers and writing Rails apps (with the occasional PHP, ColdFusion, and a tiny bit of ASP.NET thrown in). Nowadays, pretty much everything I work on is deployed to AWS and I’m doing less and less Rails everyday.
After thinking about it for a while, I realized that I’ve been enjoying doing Go here and there, but I haven’t been able to really dive into doing it on a daily basis. What a better way to transition this blog into something written in Go? At first, I wondered about just using Hugo, but really, what fun would that be?
Over the next couple weeks, I’m hoping to roll this site into something written in Go and redeploy it, and then blog a little about it. Stay tuned for something new!
