I’ve worked a fair bit of my PM career leading the efforts in improving the API documentation experiences for developers. Nothing opens your eyes more to the pain of developers than actually building the tooling that makes API docs happen.
For some time, I needed a way to use caffeinate on Windows. If you are coming from macOS, you know how useful this utility can be when you want to keep the computer awake for some definite or indefinite time. So, following the engineer mindset, I decided to build my own, starting with a PowerShell script.
As I was fiddling with some automation scenarios at home, I thought of putting the Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) to good use. That is, in addition to all the photo backup stuff it’s already doing.
