Nothing for last week – half term with kids so stayed away from computer as much as possible.
Really positive architecture meeting.
Solving issue with using Selenium to do integration testing and ‘mocking’ the database
Next week sees the first Blazor implementation that needs to be code reviewed, so have been using Pluralsight to re-visit that knowledge.
Completed the EF Core Introduction by Julie Lehman on Pluralsight.
Watched ASP.NET Community Standup – Building HTTP APIs
Very timely as we’ve just introduce Swagger across all microservices. Learnt some further best practices that will be added to the coding standards and retrospecitvely introduced to the code base.
.NET 6.0 Preview 1 Release Notes
Too early to start ‘playing’ with things, but with .NET 6 being the long term service release, really exciting to see the developments being made in this area.
Raspberry Pi Pico – UDS Sensor and Pico Explorer Base
Treated myself to a Pico Explorer Base (https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pico-explorer-base) from Pimorino, and developed my original UDS Sensor script to use the Pico Display and Audio output. Code for this is available from Git here: https://github.com/greg-bowie/raspberrypico/blob/main/pico-explorer-parking-sensor.py
Also bought a ‘Tiny Pico 2040’ – got it working and displaying the Rainbow LEDs, but need to think of a suitable project, and probably get a soldering iron out again.
Space Station Code Submission
Also worked (did the work?) with the kids to get submissions in for the Astro PI: Mission Zero project.
Big fans of Line of Duty, so decided to go backwards and watch some of them again. Started strangely with Series 2. Now heading back to Series 1.
Much better week this week. A PT session on Monday left me with DOMS until about Thursday!
Tuesday and Thursday saw 5k runs, and Saturday was a 5 mile run – concluding week 1 of a 20 week training plan for Race to the Stones.
By way of this running, also completed a Virtual North Downs Way 100km event, looking forward to the wooden coaster and postcard to arrive!
Need to improve diet and factor in rehab exercises for on-going groin injury, but much better than previous weeks.
