Inspired by Derek Sivers who set off the /now movement, here you’ll find what I’m up to in life right now.

What I’m doing now

Some time last year I wrote:

I’m currently writing a daemon (in Go) that is designed to read secrets from key management systems like Azure Key Vault or AWS Secrets Manager, optionally transform them, then write them out again to a variety of different outputs (including local files or other key vaults).

But I’ve put that project on the backburner for a bit as I haven’t had the energy lately to be doing anything that feels like work during my spare time. I’d still like to get back to it eventually as I already got quite far with it, but I have no idea when that will be right now.

Could be a while, as this year my role at Castor will be changing quite a bit. I’m leaving the Platform Team that I helped build over the past 5 years and will instead be moving over to what we are calling the “Participant Hub”, a group that is responsible for all the user interactions that patients have with our systems.

Within the participant hub, I will be working on a project that involves writing Rust (and we’re looking for a second Rust developer to come join me and help us with that), so that’s going to be an exciting journey. I’m doing a lot of interviewing at the moment as a result, since we’re looking for new hires for the platform team to help fill the gap I’ll be leaving behind there.
