Redoing my engineering after 20 years

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 11/10/2018 - 21:36

Yes you read it correctly I am actually redoing my engineering again almost after 20 years. I am not really enrolling myself in a course or going back to university but I am actually relearning the things that I learned long long back again.

I made a video explain what are my plans. You can watch that video if you want but I am anyways sharing my plan in this blog.

I will present my experience in implementing two solutions to integrate a live chat support within JIRA Servce Desk.

When you have products and services used by thousands of customers, you need a system in place to streamline the support process. For many users, they prefer to engage with you via live chat support. It’s direct and quick, giving them instant gratification for finding a solution to their problem. For those using Jira Service Desk as their ITSM solution, there hasn’t been a Jira live chat support solution contained within the Atlassian ecosystem – until now.

Moving to Drupal VM by @geerlingguy

I have been using Vagrant for a very long time now. I love it. It is perfectly to setup the environment and develop for Drupal, however recently I tried moving some of my sites to Drupal 8. I know I am late, very, very late but better late than never :) and I realised setting up the environment manually is a bigger pain, to be honest I am never comfortable setting up LAMP, I don't think I have ever configured Apache perfectly in one go. It always needs some R&D to make it work with Drupal or may be I am not good in it. I don't know. It is a pain.

Exposing shell over API is reminiscence of CGI and old college days

This morning I was going to Reading when I thought of exposing the shell script that I wrote yesterday to read the CSV file where I am storing my GPS location and sending it to my website. I though of this idea where I can simply query my database of flat files. I thought of creating a bash script where I can pass the date and time argument and it will return my GPS coordinates of that day by looking in the CSV files. I also thought of exposing this script using API.
