Note: In this post I use the acronym CDM to mean “Canonical Data Model”.
My side project for the last two months has been putting together what has ended up being docker based website fronted by Kong. (With a docker image repository thrown in for good measure.) It’s been a bit of an odyssey to be honest. I didn’t start out meaning to create this monster; it was just supposed to be a Drupal site running on docker but as I worked out the development and maintenance processes around it little details made me gradually add complexity. It might be a bit of a monster but it is my monster it works well for me.
While I wait for decision makers where I work to decide on whether to approve our recommendation of looking at a new integration platform I have been able to spend some time getting familiar with the Snaplogic iPaaS. Apart from Snaplogic's own site there isn't too much online discussing it so I thought I would share my first impressions.
So here's some more random ramblings I want to put into my blog.
I am pretty sure that I want to build my own iPasS. Although as usual I could be wrong and remain (somewhat) persuadable.
I am currently looking into the future of integrations at my organisation (Check out my last blog https://code.metcarob.com/node/13 for a bit more background.)
We use the expression "buy before build" a lot where I work but after a conversation with my manager today I found myself wondering what build actually means!
I thought I would start my blog with a post about why I am writing it. At the very least it will help collect my thoughts together about how I plan and write posts. Not that I expect that anyone will read it. You see I am not an expert, and I don't plan to write about stuff I know well. This blog is going to be a place for me to put my thoughts, my ideas and my plans. Many many things I put here will be wrong! Even worse, I am a terrible communicator, terrible at writing and my spelling and grammar sucks more than you know. But, I am an idea machine.
