# 1Password can sign git commits for you You can use the beta version of 1Password 8 to [sign git commits](https://developer.1password.com/docs/ssh/git-commit-signing)! You can generate a private key with it and then protect that key with your Touch ID. Pretty nifty way to ensure your commits aren't being impersonated. # Transitioning to Terraform Cloud I've always been loathe to manage cloud infrastructure directly, especially for my personal stack. I've historically used [Cloud66](https://www.cloud66.com/) to manage a Kubernetes cluster and related applications, but apart from the cost, I've necessarily reached some limitations when accessing more Kubernetes features, or with the domain specific YAML configurations that C66 provides. I've since then moved to Infrastructure-as-Code (Terraform Cloud) for my personal stack [here](https://github.com/tjpalanca/tjcloud). It has Kubernetes on [[Linode]], [[Cloudflare]], Ingresses, OAuth2 Gateways with [[Keycloak]], PGAdmin, a development stack, and my Plausible Analytics tracking - basically everything I need to be fully productive on the cloud, without ever needing to develop locally. # From the notes: FastAPI I've never seriously taken a look at FastAPI since I've not had a use case for it, but I finally found the time to do a thorough read through of the documentation. The notes are here: [[FastAPI]]. It's pretty nifty, and my next task is to look at leveraging [Hotwire](https://hotwired.dev) to build server-render applications with minimal JavaScript, and extend that to an idea I had about making Business Intelligence more impactful. # What I've been reading - [Ukraine's Path to Victory - Foreign Policy](https://www.foreignaffairs.com/ukraine/ukraines-path-victory) is a thorough run-down of how Ukraine can wrest victory from Russia's hands. It's a great article but I'm not sure I can really validate all the claims that it makes. - [Why The Ethereum Merge is a Big Deal - Every](https://every.to/almanack/why-the-ethereum-merge-is-a-big-deal) is a great explainer on the changes with the Ethereum merge. It's quite exciting to see cryptocurrencies come up with some really grown-up governance process and utilize it to create sweeping changes, particularly to address energy use. - [Towards a Principled Bayesian Workflow - Michael Betancourt](https://betanalpha.github.io/assets/case_studies/principled_bayesian_workflow.html) is one of the gems I've re-read due to a personal project I'm tackling. Hands down still one of the best pieces of workflow writing in years, and one that really got me into using Bayesian statistics for my data science work for a while.
