I’ve done a lot of stuff in the last half of 2017, but not much of it has made it here. Here’s a roundup of things published/spoken/embroidered/etc in other places:
- a cycling trip near Seattle, the San Juan Islands, and Vancouver Island
- some TCP fanart
- a writeup on
bunon the ocamllabs blog
- a talk on fuzzing in the CI/CD pipeline given at DevOps Days Madison
- a full-size cross-stitched reproduction of a scene from The Secret of Monkey Island (VGA remake)
- my reflections on the late-2017 MirageOS hack retreat in Marrakesh (raw text)
- a writeup on
ppx_deriving_crowbaron the ocamllabs blog
utopfanart, which is not yet complete
- a talk at the 34th Chaos Communication Congress (resilience track) on library operating systems (translated into French and German - click the gear in the lower right!)
Also, how about some direct links to software projects?
- bun, a project for integrating Crowbar tests into cloud-based CI pipelines
- ppx_deriving_crowbar, an experimental ppx_deriving plugin for automatically deriving generators for use in crowbar
- ocaml-test-stdlib, Crowbar tests for the
Setfunctors in the OCaml standard library run in Travis CI using
- ocaml-test-omp, a Crowbar test for ocaml-migrate-parsetree using
ppx_deriving_crowbarto automatically derive the types in OCaml’s
- certify, a three-year-old tool for generating X509 certificates that just saw its proper first release.
Oh yeah, and also a bit of software community service:
A post like this, standing in the doorway of a new year, invites some thoughts about the future as well as the past. I don’t have time for deep thoughts on this (my old cert expires in 18 minutes as of this writing, and I’d like to deploy this post before then), but I hope that in 2018, we can keep taking our time and attention away from those who would profit off of us, and continue making a better world.
