Series are long-form content. They usually start with a premise: let's make X! Or, let's understand Y! And from there, things balloon out of control.
They're different from articles, which are on a single page.
I often give bits and pieces of advice on how to build Rust stuff the comfy way. But it can be hard to see how everything comes together, especially when it comes to, say, deploying a web service in production.
Let's use the Advent of Code 2022, a series of programming challenges of increasing difficulty, to learn more about the Rust programming language.
In 2020, I switched from a static site generator to something homemade.
And, as tradition commands, I did a whole write-up about it.
In this series, I change a critical component of this website's asset pipeline from "just calling a bunch of external tools" to statically linking with everything I need to process assets. It involves autoconf, CMake, Meson, CI, pkg-config, and some code crimes.
In this series, we'll attempt to understand how Linux executables are organized, how they are executed, and how to make a program that takes an executable fresh off the linker and compresses it - just because we can.
Let's use the Advent of Code 2020, a series of programming challenges of increasing difficulty, to learn more about the Rust programming language.
Enhance! In this series, we're looking at TV depictions of technology, and reviewing how realistic they are. Of course, they're very rarely accurate, but it's still interesting to take a look and try to figure out what they could've been thinking of, and just reminisce in general.
When I launched my Patreon, I vowed to explain how computers work. But in 2019, computers rarely work in isolation. So let's take the time to write a few articles about how computers talk to each other.
Everybody knows how to use files. You just open up File Explorer, the Finder, or a File Manager, and bam - it's chock-full of files. There's folders and files as far as the eye can see. It's a genuine filapalooza. I have never once heard someone complain there were not enough files on their computer.
