Where have I been writing when I haven’t been writing here? If you don’t want to wait for these monthly summaries, subscribe to my weekly newsletter!
Over on Opensource.com, we had our 7th consecutive million-page-view month. I’m not going to bother mentioning this anymore. I wrote the articles below.
- Haters gonna hate: 7 ways to deal with criticism – Jason van Gumster and I wrote this Taylor Swift-themed article about dealing with haters when you share your work. One commenter even turned it into a live demo.
- Creative Commons: 1.2 billion strong and growing – Creative Commons released their annual “State of the Commons” report this week. More and more works use those licenses, and there’s some really interesting projects (like a human skull-shaped 3D-printable candy dish).
Meanwhile, I wrote or edited a few things for work, too:
- How can you save money with Preemptible VMs? – A look at how CycleCloud makes it easy to save money on compute costs with Google Cloud’s Preemptible VMs.
- Customize your cloud instances with CycleCloud projects – Our developers have been hard at work to make it easier to manage custom cloud instance configuration.
- Automatic license installation for CycleCloud – We shortened the onboarding process by automating license management. I’m particularly fond of this feature because I did some of the coding for it at our last engineering meeting.
- Various ghost-written pieces. I’ll never tell which ones!
