Hi, I'm Dominik Schwind, friend of the internet. Here is /now.
Say hello to me on Twitter or maybe even subscribe to my weekly newsletter.
Meh. This is all broken. Maybe just subscribe to my RSS feed?

February 11, 2018

How is it Sunday already? Semi-productive week last week, aided by both the fact that half of my colleagues are lost somewhere in the Cologne carnival and the fact that I had to wrestle down WordPress in a way I haven’t done before. Turns out if you have special requirements suddenly even a WordPress project can turn into a “proper” software development project. I did have two “shame on me” moments, though: One, I realised I hadn’t written proper SQL code in probably five to six years now. (Thanks, frameworks with your usually rather adequate-to-great abstraction layers.) Second: I didn’t actually know about CodeKata before. Well, I guess I’ll make some time to get those gears going again.
On Saturday I went to the photography meetup in Basel, which is really always nice. Somehow there’s always a good mix of interesting and friendly people. (And me. I don’t know how I fit into that mix, but there I am, taking photos.)


  • Remotely working at Pooliestudios
  • Trying to sort out my brain, my life and my belongings in a way that I’ll be able to move to Cologne and remove that remotely from that first sentence.
  • Still doing the Reporter thing. Too lazy to build something that actually produces some insight. I do have a whole bunch of data by now, though. Hmmhmmhmm.

Useless Stats

Cups of coffee I had since the last update: 9
Amount of sleep I’ve gotten since the last update: 49 hours, 41 minutes.
I listened to 338 songs by 150 artists, the song I’ve listened to the most was Tunak Tunak Metal by Bloodywood.
I didn’t watch a lot of television last week, but I am getting better at PUBG. (By better I mostly mean: I do hit people once in a while and I made it to the top ten a couple of times.)
