GraphQL, Password Hashes, and Rust CLIs
Rob is enjoying his new life as a freelancer, while JD struggled through another stage of grief. Both have been using their side projects to ignore the current state of the world, and have found great enjoyment in Rust and Elixir. Rob has been diving into GraphQL and password hashing algorithms, while JD has used Rust to rewrite a small CLI he created five years ago.
Rob is enjoying his new life as a freelancer, while JD struggled through another stage of grief. He doesn't expect to be back in an office till autumn or even winter, and doesn't know how to take a vacation to really disconnect and get away from it all. Rob wonders if camping could be an option, and JD shares his dream to do a road trip with friends to the remote countryside of Sweden.
While working on Taskful's backend, Rob has started to explore GraphQL. He also got hooked on the problem of password hashing, and how to design a more modern authentication system now that the backend is getting rewritten.
JD put his sim racing project aside and has focused working on small Rust CLIs. The first is an old workflow for Alfred he wrote five years that he now rewrote in Rust. Next he wants to work on a CLI that can help him organize the documents on his machine.
