The Repository pattern is to take a class and stuff all your raw SQL statements therein, snippets organized as methods. Moving away from it felt like sublimation: that is, to expose those same calls as service endpoints. If it’s useful in private, surely it could be useful to others elsewhere.

I am a little divided in what to speak, because so much of it is in language and libs. Others can dance the line with owned opinions declared, but those same bits expose more than is wont. Maybe twenty-minute topics will help; I need to catch up on dates.

A single Pomodoro won’t change the world, but a mountain of them makes a useful index. If a tiny thing is learned in a fraction’s span, I think a multiple of it is a karmic dividend.
