This week I will leave my own business. It has been prepared for 3 months, but now it is getting really close. I am ready for the next step and I am honestly happy the company will keep running without me. However, this period felt like a roller coaster and I would like to share some thoughts how such a process could be guided (or the alternative title for this post: "what I learned from my mistakes").

Today I was looking how you can populate an ssh known_hosts file with ansible. For ssh access (pulling git repositories) I need to accept a fingerprint and I do not want to do this manually for every target. Therefore, I want to populate the known_hosts file so ssh can connect to them without interaction. And in fact, it was quite easy to achieve.

For a project we required tracking of events for various user interactions. The goal was to provide insights in user behaviour for certain sections of the site, but most of these interactions included "outbound links": hyperlinks pointing to a URL. Simply tracking the events with an onClick handler will not work in this case, so I wrote a simple wrapper to solve this problem.
