Here are a few projects I’ve worked on in the past. Sometimes my blog posts are based on problems I’ve discovered while working on them.
A website collecting all kinds of SaaS marketplaces. These are usually SaaS products offering a marketplace where you can list your own plugins/SaaS products to extend the main SaaS product. A typical example is Slack with its integrations or Atlassian with their Atlassian marketplace. saas-marketplaces.com is giving you ways to search for new marketplaces with direct links to relevant documentation for getting started with building and selling your software.
A CLI tool to trace AWS Lambda calls over multiple CloudWatch log groups.
A CLI tool to update only the code of one or more Lambda functions from a CloudFormation template.
A command line tool based on NodeJS to start a Confluence instance as standalone. It can download any instance archive directly from the web, unzip it and start it with your desired options like port or context path. This is very useful if you’re a developer and need to quickly start a special Confluence version.
This small side-project is a prototype to get in touch with JavaFX. I decided to create a GUI for the document converter Pandoc, although there are already a few GUIs available.
