New job; new stuff to learn

July 03, 2022 — Allen

I started a new position back in April and so far it's been perfect. I'm a senior engineer and I'm not only allowed to make thingsāˆ’I'm expected to. I think I may have found the place I want to retire from.

To that end, I've been working on a user telemetry server. It's like all the pieces of my life are lining up. I'm using Sequelize for the persistence layer. Like many software libraries, it's very nice, but the documentation is atrocious. It seems no one told the Millennials that you can't use a word to define itself.

It took me forever to work it out, but the difference between references and Associations (ie. has/belong) is the former defines the DDL and the Associations seem to define the same analogous relationships in the object model.
