first post - in Google App Engine

First post! Um, again… My name is Bill Cawthra, I’m a DevOps, Sys admin, IT… person. I like to build things and make them work.

THIS is the first post here on the new landing spot for my blog and notes, Currently it’s being deployed using Hugo and Google App Engine. There are two sites,, a standard GAE application and the official The first is a GAE standard and the second is GAE flexible. Why? I wanted to automate the SSL process and at the time, the best I can do is using Google’s GAE flexible Dockerfile based config. More on that in the future…

Regardless of the new site, the overall goal remains the same:

My reason for creating this site is simple: to document and publish any cool ideas of what I build or discover. At the very least it will be a good resource for myself. If others find it interesting, all the more awesome. Cheers.
