NodeJS Portfolio Update (October 9, 2023)

I got some work done this weekend, but not as much as I would have liked. I am trying to come up with a good system for handling database queries. I do not want the database open the entire time the site is up because that could be bad. On the other hand, I cannot use my app as its currently written and close the database connection. In the past I had considered collecting a few queries and storing them client side in batches. That will likely end up being the final implementation, and that will require rewriting code.

I am also making a slight change to my deployment plan. Initially, I wanted to deploy both the new site and blog all at once. However, I do not have the devlog database in place, and that will take a minute. I will also need to rewrite that code too to fit the new system. In the long run it’ll be a better application for everyone, but it will take longer than I wanted. I’m going to try to work on things during the week before work, at least a little bit since I now work 2nd shift. I think I prefer the later shift because I can maintain a more normal sleep schedule. I’m sorry it’s taking longer than anticipated to roll this new site out completely, and thank you for understanding.
