June 27, 2019

Japan 2019 Day 5

June 26, 2019
Day five of ten has arrived and it’s by far the most touristy of our time so far (and probably to come). Before we left for Japan, Joel booked a tour of Studio Ghibli - a famous Japanese animation studio, somewhat equivalent to Pixar.

Calling a Go Library from Rust: A Case Study with SQIP

May 27, 2019
I’ve spent this bank holiday weekend building an improved tool for generating my Hugo short codes for responsive images on my blog. In the process I ran into a situation where I needed to call a Go library from Rust. In doing so I learned a fair bit about FFI and as there was no single resource that documented the process I thought I’d break down how to do it and highlight some of the intricacies.
