Together with my wife I run an ecommerce and web-publishing business. Before that, I studied mechical engineering and physics, did a research year in theoretical astrophysics, did a PhD in applied mathematics, worked for a few years in technology consulting and new product development, and started a website as an experimental online side business. The side business took off and turned out to be a lot of fun, so back in 2013 my wife and I left our jobs to work on it full time and haven’t looked back. These days I spend my time growing our business, playing with my kids, and expanding my coding skills.
PhD in Applied Mathematics, 2008
BSc (Hons) in Physics, 2004
BEng Mechanical Engineering, 2003
I’m assuming you’ve written a Clojure web app and you want to get it into production with a minimum of pain, expense and “incidental complexity”. You don’t want DevOps to suck up your time.
This post is for you if you want to SSH tunnel (with ssh -L ...) into a server that has AllowTcpForwarding set to no in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file, and you don’t have the privileges to change that file.
Cryogen is a static site generator written in Clojure while Netlify is a slick and powerful platform for deploying static websites. Can they play well together? Yes! The Cryogen website describes how to deploy to Github Pages, which works fine, but personally I found it easier to deploy my site to Netlify.
