I love music.
Too bad, i’m still sucks and playing any music instrument :P Karena hal tersebut, makanya saya memilih untuk nge-DJ saja.

Nah di era pandemi ini saya punya waktu luang yang sebelumnya terpakai untuk komuter dari kantor ke rumah. Kalau sebelumnya setiap Jum’at malam harus selalu berjibaku dengan kemacetan ibu kota serta padatnya KRL, waktu tersebut bisa saya gunakan buat berlatih.

Jadilah saya tiap Jum’at malam sejak sekitar kwartal pertama 2021 bikin bikin IG live. Isinya 1.5 – 2 jam live gig (kadang sampai 4 jam) saya memainkan berbagai macam genre. Yang umum saja sih semacam House, Tech House, Electro House/EDM, Trance.

How To Install Java on Your New Java-less macOS

OK, it’s 2021 and you got new Macs. Or maybe you just finished upgrading your macOS to Catalina or Big Sur and found there is no Java anymore. This article might help you with that.

As widely known, Oracle announced that the Oracle JDK 8 builds released after JAN 2019 will not be free for commercial use. Since OS X 10.7 Java is not (pre-)installed anymore. Well, I’m not a fan of Java myself (i stop using it after Java 1.6 i guess). But since I’m also tinkering with Android (and Kafka), I have no choice but put Java in my dev machines.

Instead using Oracle’s, I will use OpenJDK.

There are several ways to install OpenJDK to your Mac.

  1. Simply install the prebuilt OpenJDK binary.
  2. Install via homebrew
  3. Compile the source codes your self :P

Desk Setup Transformation Covid-19

2020 was a very very tough year for all of us. I lost my mom after years fighting with diabetic that lead to kidney failure. The global Covid-19 pandemic also put a heavy blow to the world society, economic and i think also politic.

It’s not done yet as today in 2021, but i hope it can be getting better and we’re getting smarter and wiser to make it happen.

One big change from this pandemic is how we work. Instead going to the office, most of us are required to work remotely from home. Well, it’s not applied to everybody but for people who work in IT field like me, WFH is not a new thing. I have friends that literally working remotely while traveling around the globe most of the time.

And it’s been 12+ months from March 2020 until now April 2021 i’ve been working remotely from home. Well, there was time when i’m allowed to go to the office with max team capacity 25%-50% on site. But literally i let my team work remotely full time including from their home town.

From these last 12 months, i reliazed i made quite a change in my house for WFH. From changing internet providers 3 times up until bought 4 desks and relayoutin my living room.
