Generative Art

It all started with a Reddit post in which someone posted his book on generative art. I sent this to a friend (Jonathan Lange) and we decided to start a challenge until Sunday (today the 10.07.2022).

An Elm Compliments DApp with Gun.js

It all started with the video from Fireship about gun.js. I was impressed that there was a way to make an app completely decentralized. Theme web3 and all.

Elm AWS Cognito Login/Register Template with TypeScript

For a current small project I needed a login/IAM provider. Here I immediately thought of aws cognito. The project is completely on aws, so I wanted to set the login to cognito. Since I work with Elm, I went directly to the search, for libs and examples. But as so often in Elm, it鈥檚 just faster to do it yourself. Here you also have complete control over the source code.

For my private projects as well as for my professional ones....

Why I Remove Google Analytics

I just removed Google Analytics from my blog post. Since it is not clear if it鈥檚 still allowed in Germany, I just go the easy way and remove it.

React and UI5 Web Components

Getting started with React.js and UI5 Web Components Why am I even writing about a topic that has actually been covered often enough? Because I google this setup over and over again 馃く. I google again and again how to set up a React App, how to use SASS or how to add SAP UI5. Also I often search how to configure a proxy and how to deploy it all to cloud foundry....
