I tried a project that involved using an API and as daunting as it was when I finally got it to work, it felt really simple.

Almost done with my local Covid-19 tracker side project which also uses contextualsearch's API to curate global news about the virus.

Tech stack is Django + Zurb Foundation + Vanila JS + Postgresql. Hosting is sponsored by Digital Ocean 😄

I got two messages from followers on twitter and they mentioned that I'm spreading good content and positivity in the dev community.

Happy to hear.

I'm diving into MySQL this weekend. I've never touched it before, but I'm hitting it hard and I hope to have a solid grasp on it by Monday!
