Hello World

March 25, 2019

Obligatory hello world post incoming!

function sayHello(to: string): string {
  return `Hello, ${to}!`;

sayHelllo('World'); // Hello, World!

So I guess I should introduce myself. I’m Patt-tom, I’m a Software Engineer living and working in London.

I work with Node.js, TypeScript, Docker, Kubernetes and a variety of tools / libraries that live in these ecosystems.

I’ve had various versions of a “blog” over the years that usually end in some state of disrepair with a poor excuse as to why. Subscriptions not being paid, servers failing, domains expiring, etc.

This time I’m hoping it’s a little different (famous last words), This blog is all static and the writing itself lives in Git / GitHub thanks to Gatsby and it costs nothing to host it thanks to Netlify,so even if something goes wrong at least I can hold onto everything that i’ve written.

The only thing I need to remember to do is pay for the domain and keep writing on it.

With that said, this is intended to be a place for me to share my opinions in a long-form medium and also share interesting things I’ve learnt or have built.
