Creating a static home page in Hugo

Over the past few weeks I have been converting a few of my friends sites that I host from Drupal to Hugo. This has also given me the opportunity to move them from my own Digital Ocean hosts to firebase like I did with this site. I recently ran into a problem with Hugo that seemed simple enough, however some of the documentation proved a little confusing required some troubleshooting.

Revamping my site

So I decided to give hugo a try It’s been a long time since I last gave my website a refresh. A lot has happened since my last post. Technology wise I am no longer working with Drupal. While I still appreciate the role that Drupal played in my professional career and the solid project that it is, I am now more focused on infrastructure and security engineering and no longer have the time to maintain a Drupal site.

High Frequency Cryptocurrency Trading

I’ve been dabblings with cryptocurrencies for a little while now. I had originally traded in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), ZCash (ZEC) and Ripple (XRP). Until recently it had been just a few trades here and there and leave it to hopefully increase in value. I recently decided to look into high frequency cryptocurrency trading and ended up setting up freqtrade, a bot written in python that will use real time data to make trades on Bitrex on my behalf.

We Bought a House

Jess and I took the leap and bought a house in San Jose. We have a great view of the city and the commute is 30-45 mins depending on traffic. I’m looking forward to getting stuck into renovations so we can hopefully move in before christmas.

Moving to California

Jess and I have decided to sell our house and move to Silicon Valley where I have been offered a job as a Site Reliability Engineer at LinkedIn. Moving away from my family is bittersweet but in the end the opportunity was too good to pass up. We will be moving at the beginning of April. I am hugely appreciative of the opportunities that Acquia gave me and the friends that I made there.
