If you ask almost any programmer what their least favorite part of the industry is, they'll likely say interviewing. The Tech industry has transformed what should be a simple process into an unholy nightmare. When a majority of your industry says it _loathes_ the interview process, perhaps we should examine it more and attempt to make it better.
7 Days to Die has easily become one of my favorite video games. It is essentially a cross between Minecraft and Left 4 Dead and I find it absolutely thrilling. In this tutorial you'll setup a 7D2D server on Ubuntu 20.04.

Secure your Droplet from malicious actors attempting to compromise your systems. This talk will cover the foundations of securing your droplet, protecting your users, and keeping your data safe.
Using Signals to Clean Up My Mess in Django
While trying to cascade deletes of Droplets when I delete the parent Class they
would have been associated with in DigitalOcean Classroom, I attempted to
