Leaving Google AppEngine

Calvin Spealman
I can use AWS and work on technological engineering issues, or appengine and work on price-ological engineering issues. :-/


Maybe I should take myself seriously when I said this. In the past few months, I've barely done any feature or bug work on JournaApp, because it takes my limited time and energy just keeping myself under quota when I'm the only user of the app. I can't keep that up and keep my sanity, and it is honestly an emotionally draining exercise. This is creating a toxin that affects everything I do, so I'm going to take it out of my life.

I don't know if I'll port JournalApp or not. I like it, it has been fun and useful, but I'll probably take project notes in Evernote from here on forward, and on paper again. I miss paper.

Same story for me. I'm working on a hobby project that may or may not catch up. But in the last few months all I did are things affecting my quota. And, it took them ages to add a python version 2.7.

For my next project I'll probably consider heroku or plain AWS, too.

I write here about programming, how to program better, things I think are neat and are related to programming. I might write other things at my personal website.

I am happily employed by the excellent Caktus Group, located in beautiful and friendly Carrboro, NC, where I work with Python, Django, and Javascript.
