DH Tech Blog

This is the DHTech blog. There are two types of blog posts: ADayInTheLifeOf and 2Simple2Mention. ADayInTheLifeOf aims to give the reader an idea of what a day in the work life of a DH techie looks like. It can be anything the author wants to share about their job. 2Simple2Mention provides a space to live for all these technical problems that we sometimes need a lot of time to fix but that turn out to be super simple. We don't write them down because we think it's so simple we will remember, and spend the same amount of time on them again the next time (or someone else is).

I love my job. It is very interesting and challenging, I get to learn new things all the time, and some semesters I teach, which I enjoy a lot. Some days, however, are like 2020, you just want them to end.

Simply updating the Django version ...

by Malte Vogl

For a small project running on Django, I was planning to do a tiny upgrade. Just changing from Django 2 to Django 3... What could possibly go wrong!

Zope 2.10 in Docker, or Applied Software Archaeology

by Robert Casties

I wanted to migrate the old website on the server to a Docker image for Zope so I could use it in a docker-compose setup together with a standard PostgreSQL container. How hard could that be?
