This is my first blog post and my first time using Astro.

The Tech

I am using Astro for the static rendering so that I can publish it to GitLab Pages. I am using the Astro-Paper theme with some tweaks that the author listed to add reading time. The posts are written in Markdown and then GitLab CI is building and deploying it.

Going forwards I am going to be adding the ability for the pages domain and the DNS to be managed via Terraform as I have done in the past.

What to expect

I am currently using Spring and Spring-Boot at work with a bit push for automation, so expect to see posts on those topics. I am learning to use Terraform, Ansible and K8s, so there will be posts on how I am using those at home and playing with them to speed thing up or simplify them (Terraforming my CloudFlare domain management was wonderful when I needed to change the IP address).

Getting in touch

I am not sure yet of the best way to get replies. I might add a form later, or open up the repo on GitLab for comments.

For now, email me and I will get back to you.
