Hi. I’m Ryan. I believe if you don’t track something it doesn’t exist. I love data. I love analyzing that data more. I write about it sometimes.
I have been out of the development game for over a decade. Even when I was doing it as a profession I was not a member of a team. Source control. Proper architecture. Automated testing. These things meant nothing to me. I am more of a data guy. I still wrote scripts to work with my personal tracking. They were functional at best. Exist Integrations came from one of those scripts.
Total Distance: 217.2 miles (-25.6 miles) Total Time: 29:37:51 (8:12/mile average) Month Leaderboard: #4 Weekly Breakdowns: 2/1 - 2/7 - 64.5 miles (#2) 2/8 - 2/14 - 66.3 miles (#1) 2/15 - 2/21 - 34.5 miles (#96) 2/22 - 2/28 - 52.0 miles (#14) The weekly breakdowns paint the picture for February. Marathon training progressed well. I only topped 60 miles once before. In February I did it twice in back-to-back weeks.
I’m excited to announce the soft launch of my new project: Exist Integrations. I’ve written about Exist before. My usage has only grown since my post last January. Exists value increases as more data comes into your Exist Dashboard. Exist Integrations augments the official supported services with more integrations. The idea for this project came into light over 15 months ago. I created a POC that connected Trakt to Exist. I took shortcuts.
