Knee-deep in data models. So many fields... data is looking so good. Client is coming up with some great ideas and the implementation is fairly simple. Until you figure out what that simple thing *could* evolve into... which is totally friggin awesome. Need to make time for this.

it would be really cool if "Forms" and "Form Handlers" had more distinct names. Like "Forms" and "Endpoints"... ie, something to reduce potential confusion when the requsts go to other teams. Pretty please.

Extra bonus: I can start watching the Penguins again. Rivals no more. :-D

yeah hopefully it works out to be a good trade for everyone. I wish I didn't have 8 tickets to next Saturday's Philly game in Montréal though! 6 family members flying in to see... Jordan not playing. At least we know this time.

...and suddenly I was an Arizona Coyotes fan! Time to buy a new sweater and some hats.

Turns out I am starting to prefer big chains for coffee and tea. Local spot I used to prefer is so watered down now. I guess they are making up the cost of the students who buy 1 drink and work 8h there. Glad I no longer work at cafés.

I love that moment when you've been listening to a foreign language enough that "blahblahblahblah" starts sounding like "word word word word" even if you don't know what it means yet. Half way there. Keep going!

Writing conference talks again... keeping the drafts open as I work. Surprising the odd things that make it into the discussion when you're peppering it with real pain points!

Now you're making me regret not saying hi at VueConf! Thanks for the awesome course + book.

In this case 100 fields makes perfect sense. Also: it isn't Drupal... so no problem with 100 fields! Data is always returning under 1sec even in a non-optimized state. Challenge is just finding all the data. Custom layout makes the UI pretty clean and nice.

Cool. I probably should have done a side-by-side comparison. The theming stuff definitely made me take a step back from VuePress when customization is necessary. I still plan to use it for things where the default theme works as-is.

Migrating 3-5 content types into one... about 100 fields. Most of them are mapped, including most of the difficult stuff. Up against that 80/20 rule again: this last 20% is gonna take awhile to figure out. Can I finish it in next 24h? Let's find out.

Not sure if sarcasm or not... but it does look good. VuePress with a hint of blue! I had a VuePress site drafted but I ended up porting it to Nuxt because I wanted to spend time doing a custom design. I still love that sweet MD file support in VP though.

You know you're starting to reach the limits of Nuxt when you're constantly adding webpack config to it. Feels good knowing what is going on! Probably should have started with vue-cli with a small thing I'm working on. Next refactoring will take care of that.

In 2018 almost every project I touched had Vue.js in it. Experience has been great overall. We <3 Vue and so do our clients! This year we are relaunching some sites built ENTIRELY with Vue/Nuxt, and Node+Cassandra. Goodbye CMS!

Get a secure storage location where you live now. You'll be back there often enough.

IMO, it takes 6-8 weeks to wind everything down where you currently are, 4 weeks if you are in a crazy rush. Dump your furniture as early as possible. Get rid of printers and heavy things that are delicate, buy on the other side.

you should talk to ... put it all in a car and go! Myself... I shipped lots of stuff in "bankers boxes", sent them off via the post office, and got on a flight with a $50 add-on for my pets to go in the cargo hold. Then I waited for 8-10 boxes.
