So yesterday I gave an introductory presentation on how to write web applications using Python, Flask and dokku. In my talk I shown how to go from zero to a fully functional application with a small but functional deployment environment based on Dokku.
The nice thing I noticed is that people started using it, and now I have some URLs shortened through my system.
The application is called musho, as in Micro Url SHOrtener. Here it is live, and you can find the source code on Gitlab.
I hope you like it 🙂
I spawn and terminate docker containers automatically with Jenkins.
This allowed me to have a lighter application and to keep my testing environment closer to the live environment.
In this post I describe how I did this.

This is not really an article but more of a note for future reference.
So i decided to wipe an SSD drive, and I assumed that using the good old dd would not have been the correct choice.
I was right, and someone (thanks mingdao) from #gentoo on Freenode directed me to this page: ATA Secure Erase.
Basically, when dealing with SSD, it’s better to rely on standard erase feature than doing it yourself.
It took very little (approximately 21 seconds).
