New project: OpenWeather gRPC API

Long time, no see! This is the first of three new projects from this summer that I’d like to introduce to you. Written in Go, this microservice uses protocol buffers to define a highly performant gRPC API. Compared to other APIs like RESTful APIs, gRPC offers several key benefits, including: Efficient connection management with HTTP/2 Simpler server implementation Easily generate client-side code for a variety of programming languages Messages serialized to binary for more efficient payloads The service is capable of retrieving current forecasts, five day forecasts, and gelocation data from OpenWeatherMap.

About Me

My first memorable experience with technology was at age five - Nintendo introduced me to Mario, Tetris, and Zelda. My love of games took hold immediately, and I’ve been hooked on technology ever since. Games, and the hardware necessary to play them, were always evolving so I became determined to build my own desktop computer in high school. Since then, I’ve built at least another dozen computers and a couple home servers to host my own privacy focussed cloud services. These experiences have led me to become a strong proponent of open source software, in part due to its transparency, quality, innovation, and diversity. I am currently a Computer Science student at Oregon State University, and in addition to hosting my own Gitea service I also host my open source projects at Codeberg.org.
