Other Projects

  • CSV Chef - built in Go, this project allows for a simple language to be used to programmatically transform CSVs - CSV-Chef
  • Slarty Bartfast - allows for smarter CI/CD flows where the dependencies of individual “builds” can be specified so that the server only needs to test and build projects that have changed in a given pull request. This allowed CI builds to go from 60+ minutes to 5 minutes or less by intelligently determining what code had changed. Allows for storage and re-use of built artifacts in S3 or locally, and rapid deployment of these artifacts without needing to build anything on the deployment server, obviating the need to install npm or other build libraries on web servers.
