Oh, gawd, why
As always it started in a random planning session where we have decided that we will make our own tool that will replace our current monitoring tools, the architecture was all drawn up, queue services, agents, plugins, a super fast “worker” process for handling the queue and a management console for pushing commands in and displaying results.
Because of my last two blog posts I got volunteered to do the front end, which is good as I will learn more AngularJS which I would like and I will learn more bootstrap which I would like, I also thought I’d get to write a nice backend in the language of my choice; turns out, not so much.
To be honest node.js isn’t that bad to write simple things in, I’ve been getting more confused by having controllers and routes for both angular and node and trying to keep that separation in my head. I’ve so far been keeping good to my promise to do button first development so other than writing a simple api to return json I’ve not had to do much in node yet and only a little angular but at some point i’m going to get really stuck.
Busy week ahead I think, wonder if it will help or confuse me more, either way more updates next week I think :)
