This week I moved the blog from http to https. The reason - everything is moving to https and maybe it’s good for SEO. There were several steps.
At the beginning of the 2015 I worked on a python application in Google App Engine. After all, because of some limitations and vendor locks, the app was moved to docker environment. Here is the list of these limitations. I did not check since then, maybe something changed, there is App Engine Flexible Environment, but it’s still in beta.
The last 4 years I worked on Macbook Air Mid 2012 - 8 Gb, now I have Macbook Pro 13.3” 2016 - lowest model, no touchbar, but with 16 Gb. Actually there is nothing to compare, the Macbook Pro is better in every aspect.
The main result is that everything 1.5-2 times faster, some examples:
A list of my most important achievments in 2016:
- started a new job at MailInBlack, like it.
- used a lot of different technologies: flask, celery, angular, mondodb, scala, docker, azure & google clouds, google app engine
As usual at the beginning of the year I decided to continue the blog, but I was on a new macbook with a fresh system and also I forgot how to use octopress. So, why not to try something new.
When you work on the backend part of django or flask project and there are many static files, sometimes the development server becomes slow. In this case it’s possible to use nginx as reverse proxy to serve static. I’m using nginx in docker and the configuration is quite simple.
