Building a Scalable API in the AWS Cloud

We’ve been running our Node.js based API in the AWS cloud for a couple of years but have been wanting to scale way up. Rather than trying to beef up our existing VPC (vertically scale) I made the decision to architect a new solution and rebuild it from the ground up. In this post I […]

Soundset 2015

Soundset 2015

Another year, another Soundset, and this year was nothing short of outstanding! I am a huge hip-hop fan so naturally I look forward to this festival every year. The line-up this year was pretty special and included new up-and-comers along with established hip-hop veterans. Last year was our first time at Soundset and we had […]

Poll – deadmau5 while(1<2)

Welcome to the first of hopefully many polls here on the site. I have listened to deadmau5’s new album 6 or 7 times through now and I absolutely love it. It has gotten mostly positive reviews but the negative ones it has received have been very negative. Joel Zimmerman (aka deadmau5) seemed to take a […]

Achievement Unlocked: Polls

With life being so busy it has been hard for me to update this site as much as I used to. I tossed around a few different ideas, some of which I may still implement later but for the time being I have decided on putting up a weekly-ish poll. These polls will (for the […]

Ultimate Dinosaurs / The Science Museum of MN

Today we visited the Science Museum of Minnesota to see the Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibit. This was our first visit to the museum and I have to say I was really impressed with the facility. Not only is it huge and filled with awesome exhibits but it was also extremely well kept and easy to navigate […]

This year it took place at the University of St. Thomas (Minneapolis Campus) which proved to be a perfect venue for […]
