When it comes to software engineering, a good proof of concept can go a long way in illustrating solutions. But what makes a good proof of concept? What should we consider? Let's dive into a more philosophical topic and discuss.

Upon setting up this new Blog, one of my goals in moving the codebase to a JS-based platform (Gatsby), was to begin delving into unit testing with Jest. Let's consider how one initial test can help illuminate key code organization changes for my consideration moving forward.
When it comes to personal websites, starting anew is often a good thing. It allows you to dive into new tools and technologies, to discover new workflows, and generally grow as an engineer. Since I have started a new job and I am no longer in the middle of a grueling search for work, it is time to revisit my personal website.
