I got to be an earlier reviewer and back of the book quote for Functional programming with C#, I finished writing chapter 12 in my book, Refactoring with C#, and I discovered I'm likely eligible for an AI Specialist title at work.

Hasn't been one of my best weeks in a long time, but being able to put out my article on React Router was a very worthwhile feeling.
Also, I made a new friend. 😁

Current wins in the world of open-source maintaining include welcoming two new contributors this week: Tyler Celestin and Negar Nasiri. They have provided valuable feedback, suggestions, and improvements, as well as contributed their "Before I Die" images and text to the question, "What do you want to do before you die?" I highly recommend checking out our repo for Before I Die Code. We keep building every day!

Figured out how to compile (or transpile? I don't know which is correct) a Typescript + React project to multiple build files so I can use each as a static file with Django. I might write an article (or multiple probably) about it.

For me, it would be:

  • Started out writing blogs, generating some followers! (which I greatly appreciated)
  • Pitched out some projects and got accepted one (project related to AI and AR 🤔)
  • Found a mentor for our upcoming startup 🤯
  • Progress on my AI learning journey! 🧠

I somehow not progressed much on coding due to busy schedule though. I planned on learning conventional React folder structuring and clean code to be able to apply on my React projects 😴. Maybe this week I will! 💪
