This is a technical post about what I’ve discovered in creating my own custom URL shortener. Hopefully, you can learn to do the same things I did, and my experience will save you some headaches if it’s something you’re interesting in trying.
On my website, I focus a lot about decisions and discovery. I love finding out how the world works and then applying what I’ve learned to make better decisions, and I also try to share what I can along the way. I hope that it helps others.
