Hello Again

Hello again, travelers.

It has been too long since I last I wrote to you. A year and a day without any missives.

I have been keeping busy over the past year, mostly with work. I just recently celebrated my one year anniversary at WorkOS, despite it feeling like I only joined the company very recently.

Outside of work, I've recently been hacking on two new side projects:

  • Peregrine is a web framework for PureScript. My goal is to build a fast, pleasant framework that lives at the intersection of web fundamentals and FP sensibilities.
  • ravenwm is my foray into the world of Linux window managers, using Rust. I've been having a lot of fun with it so far and have enjoyed stepping out of my usual comfort zone.

In addition to these personal projects I have also been ramping back up on my contributions in the PureScript ecosystem, namely helping out with the new PureScript registry.

The leaves are starting to turn here and the sun is setting far earlier than I would like. It is definitely feeling like a good time to hole up indoors, even if that isn't much of a departure from the year and a half or so.

I hope to get back into the swing of keeping on top of this newsletter, so expect to hear from me again soon.

Until next time,
