I finally figured out how to do things in geometry; multiplying vectors, finding the closest distance between a point and a line, all that stuff. I know it's a little late! 🤣 It's not easy since I never had a strong basis on that, but it's rewarding and fun in the end. Luckily I found the resources I needed.

Fun fact, during the learning process, I found a website dated in 1988 about vectors... not sure if it's citing a source in 1988 or it was indeed established and made in 1988 and has been running till now... I kept thinking about the cost of running a web server and a domain for more than 30 years 🤔

Seems like that the domain was registered in 2011:

who.is/whois/paulbourke.net

Ah, but the look of the website is so dated, it made me think that it was indeed made in 1988 🤔😂

Yes, it's crazy. It could be that the domain expired at some point and then the owner renewed it later on :D

I crossed $300k in sales of my new course on Building Node.js CLIs. I've always loved creating and open-sourcing CLIs. E.g. my corona-cli project that went viral earlier this year.

I've been asked so many times to create a course on building automation tooling. I'm happy that I did. It took over a thousand hours, recorded 30 hours of content, trimmed it down to 10 hours in 100 videos with 22 CLI projects. So far so good.

A couple of friends and I created our FIRST EVER tech videos and published them on YouTube. It was a lot of work, especially because of the animation animation and artwork. Though we initially wanted to write about it as a blog article on dev, we decided it would be a fun project to make it a video.

It's our first video so there was so much to learn, but it was a really fun project. I think our key learning was don't expect perfection, especially for the first video.

Basically a pair of videos talking about the pros and cons (based on our experience) about using authentication as a service. Platforms like Auth0.

The streak badges are for weekly which is the cadence I’m aiming for. For more daily writing I’ve started answering questions on stack overflow.

For how I keep up my weekly writing, I’m planning on writing about this in more detail, but I have a private GitHub repo with in progress articles, as well as less developed ideas in the README for quick notes.

If I’m away from my computer I’ll write an idea in the notes app on my phone.

Made an installer and offered it to the project maintainer by dropping him an issue with a MEME see

Feature gift > Make windows install easier #242

Context

Actually, on windows, the install process is not that easy as it requires some manual actions. It would be very convenient to be able to install ytt within a single command line, even on Windows.

Therefore I created a chocolatey package which is still under moderation process, but it's usable.

Installation guidelines

To install Carvel ytt, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell with Admin privileges

choco install ytt --version=0.30.0
ytt --help

You're done.

NB

As long as the chocolatey moderation process has not ended, the version has to be provided. When the moderation process will be ok, the install process will be even easier:

choco install ytt
ytt --help

... then to upgrade:

choco upgrade ytt 

Feedbacks welcome

Please feel free to provide me any feedback 👍 , hopefully you'll like this modest 🎁
