Hi, I am Norman Ovenseri.
I use this site to post about things I do, opinions, tutorials or things I like to point out. Most recently, have been pointing out police brutality and really stupid shit Trump says.
Little about myself is that I am a sorcerer of virtual worlds and processes and have fun discovering new and weird things online.
Coding is a hobby and profession for me. Video games are what led me to code, so I'll never stop playing them.
When I started coding, I coded up a browser game that started off similar to a game I played at the time. It ended up being my own thing in the end and I had a very fun time doing it. I plan to try again.
As I keep up coding, I find that vertically integrated infrastructure lacks quite a bit because mostly of new technologies that keep coming up. There really isn't anything out there that you can pick up and you can go from development all the way to deployment easily. It is all brittle and I can tell you it makes my day worse when the deployment system breaks. Infrastructure makes software engineering life easier to deal with and having a stable system that takes care of things properly is ideal.
Professionally, I've been here and there, so wearing this and that hat is my normal. Wearing less hats is better overall if someone else can do it better.
Most recently I've built a ton of wide ranging infrastructure software for myself and plan to release a few products that makes heavy use of it. I posted about some of my infrastructure adventures.
My primary musical tastes range from pop, rock, rap, metal and any mixture between them. I've preferred some genres over another at different times while growing up and I'm sure that will continue to fluctuate. I've had my Weird Al, Sum 41, Green Day, Utada Hikaru and Metallica phases. State of flux right now where I listen and sing along to these + more.
I don't watch television and movies as much to keep up. I watched anime, Shark Tank, Fresh Prince of Bel Air and other good shows while growing up and try to re-watch some from time to time. Hey, GoT Season 8 sucked.
I really don't like to feel like I'm wasting time. It happens anyway.
