Dang! Was not planning on taking a two year hiatus in between posts. But here we are!
I just wanted to share a personal project I've been working on for the past couple of months in my spare time. It's called Random Japan, and the goal is to make a series of random tools that will make life in Japan just a tad simpler for expats like myself. It's built with Rails/React and deployed on Aws Beanstalk/Aws Amplify respectively.
The first tool is a year converter for converting to and from Japanese imperial years. There has been many a day where I've scoured Google for the answer to whether Heisei 30 is 2018 or 2019 and this tool hopefully solves that problem!
Other tools in the works include a "When's this movie coming out in Japan?" feature and a csv conversion tool for converting your Coincheck trading history into a format that's uploadable to Cointracker. Random right!
P.S. Opening up scummy-breakfast for the first time in over 2 years has made me want to add some features here too, especially in terms of design, so stay tuned. Till next time!
