New @ Hasura, Me!

I would not assume you did know this dear reader, but I’ve joined the amazing team at Hasura! Over the last few years I’ve gotten back into a number of data oriented development efforts, often related to my own interest in database systems and web development. From this angle Hasura has a superb technology solution, a solid team with founders @tanmaigo@rajoshighosh leading the crew, and I’ll introduce many of them to you all too in the coming weeks and months! 👍🏻

What is Hasura?

Hasura is a GraphQL API Server, that can be serverless via the Hasura Cloud, deployed to any cloud provider, or run locally on your own infrastructure. It is open source too, so you can dig in and checkout how things work via the Github repo.

First Steps @ Hasura

My first step when joining I put together a deployment around infrastructure as code and wrote a blog entry “Setup Postgres and a GraphQL API with Hasura on Azure” using Terraform. It’s a fairly thorough post, albeit always open to critique, and will have a follow up real soon! Some of the next steps will include further data modeling, covering various relational database paradigms and how those map to Hasura, and lots of additional information. If there’s something you’d like to see, or technologies you’d like to see me put together, do reach out to me @Adron and I’ll see about getting some customized content put together!

Some of the first endeavors I’ve started tackling is coordinating new learning material around each of the features, capabilities, patterns, practices, and ideas behind GraphQL, development around and uses of GrahpQL, the Hasura product, and how all of these technologies fit together to make software development [pick awesome adjectives here: better, faster, etc] when one is working toward an idea!

See you deep in the code and data, science, data extraction, transformation, loading, and all the software development around it all! 🚀


For JavaScript, Go, Python, Terraform, and more infrastructure, infrastructure as code, web dev, data management, data science, data extraction, transformation, loading, and coding around all of this I stream regularly on Twitch at, post the VOD’s to YouTube along with entirely new tech and metal content at I’ll be regularly participating in, scheduling, and adding content at Hasura’s Twitch & YouTube Channels too, so follow and subscribe over there too.

Last, another way to get updated on just the bare minimum of content and coding I’m doing register for the Thrashing Code Newsletter!

Do Java Code Streams Exist?

Recently while doing some coding on Twitch I was posed a question, “Are there any people streaming Java?”

It’s an interesting question, as I’ve seen a lot of people streaming a lot of languages. The bulk of streamers seem to be streaming JavaScript and the related frameworks and tools like React, Node.js, Vue.js, and others. I’ve also seen a lot of people using Python, and a few doing things like Rust, C++, and a few others but barely anybody using Java.

Finally Solidified, Twitch Scheduling

twitch-logo-sizedIt’s been a year plus now that I’ve been streaming on Twitch (FOLLOW on the channel, it’s free not a paid subscription or anything). At points it has been weekly, sometimes every other week, sometimes every day of the week, or in some cases even more intermittently or frequently. The schedule, considering, has been kind of ridiculous. But that has now changed.

Catalina 10.15.1 & OBS 24.0.2 Catastrofuck “Oops” (UPDATE: 24.0.5 Release Fixes)

December 14th, 2019 UPDATE! Scroll to the end of the post for details and link to the latest version.

catalinaOver the last few months I’ve started working a lot more with DAW’s (Digital Audio Workstation) Software. The main software I’ve been using and have taught myself includes: Logic Pro X, Superior Drummer 3, and EZMix 2. I’ve written and played music for more years than I’ll count, and have wanted to make Twitch streaming one of my outlets to produce, mix, write, and offer up music that I put together.

obs-studioSince I’ve spent the time training up on Logic Pro X, that ties me somewhat to MacOS. I could switch to something else and there would be some familiarities. But whatever the case that would mean I’d need to retrain myself on those non-familiar nuances of the software. The other software I use is offered as either MacOS or Windows and considering I’ve seen how Windows behaves with many of these things, bloats up with other things, and overall gives me a general UX distaste I didn’t really want to move or shift to that OS.

Schedule Updates: Coding, Meetups, Twitch Streams, Etc. Starting Monday 7th

Another updated schedule for the coming weeks starting September 26th onward.

SeriesThrashing Code General Calamity

This is going to be a mix of tech this week. Probably some database hacking, code hacking, samples, and setup of even more examples for use throughout your coding week!

Series: Meetups!

Series: Emerald City Tech Conversations

Join me and several guests, on several different days to get into particulars about programming, coding, hacking, ops, devops, or whatever comes up. Ask questions, inquire, infer, or inform we’re here for the conversation. Join my guests and I!
