Built a website for fun that demonstrates some of the latest web technologies available as of 2020 and design patterns I've found helpful over my professional career, and some new ones.

Web app includes a nifty feature of being able to join a waitlist by authenticating with GitHub and other common providers, in addition to taking advantage of redis for storing and persisting data.

Was a blast—check it out! 🚀

I've been working on my manga GraphQL API recently and I've noticed that getting information on series/manga takes upwards of 4 seconds on every request. This is mostly attributed to having to scrape for the info.

However, I realized that it isn't a good experience for consumers and can lead to more request to mangaupdates. So I decided to cache any requests, so future requests will be faster and use less resources.

Adding redis reduce request times from 2-3 seconds to 77 ms upon requesting for the same data.

I optimized a WordPress VPS Apache server by implementing PHP-FPM, setting up HTTP/2, installing Redis, and tweaking other backend settings. Together with some frontend optimization, PageSpeed desktop score went from 30-40 to 80-90!
