Spent some time this weekend packaging a Django (DRF) application and deploying using GitHub Actions and Docker Compose. The resulting image is 1.2GB once all dependencies are installed. I’m sure I can trim this, but it’s not a great starting point.

Accelerating development is a noble goal, but that’s a lot of bytes for an API. I’m finding myself increasingly supportive of the idea of Mechanical Sympathy that Bill Kennedy promotes within the Go community.
