My article got into the top seven featured posts of the week. So excited.

My article got featured on Microsoft Imagine cup's twitter handle.

Not a bad week in itself tbh.

Lol! Exactly. I'm glad you followed that dad joke... ๐Ÿ˜†

But seriously, it was an impactful grilled cheese sandwich for me... so much so that I shared it with the DEV Team in Slack and it was a pretty popular subject as you can see from all the comments.

Me sharing a message in Slack that says "I got some good bread and habaรฑero cheddar cheeseโ€ฆ been making spicy grilled cheeses this week and lovinโ€™ it." You can see that there are 6 threaded replies and there are two flame emojis left on the comment. Mr. popular here.

I found some Mexican street corn cheese dip at Aldi. I'm wondering how that would taste in a grilled cheese sandwich.

Just got accepted to speak with a new talk which is always nice.

Had a tough week trying to get Static Single Assignment working with my bytecode Stack Machine compiler. My initial algorithm was overly simplistic but the new crazy complicated version actually works. LLVM IR is torture, I hope the compiler ends up as performant as I expect it to be...

  • Reengaging with some old friends here on Dev. Always a plus!
  • Started a new vue3+golang project for some dev tools I've always wanted
  • Rediscovered my love for Vue given its relative simplicity
  • Making some Chicken Korma tonight, so that's always a win!

Thanks Michael! Yeah, damn good week! Hopefully some weekend hacking on some ESP32 stuff to just change things up. Also having friends over to play a board game based on "Scream" the movie. Should be fun!

Also, props on the MK movie throwback! I really enjoy the cheese, and I agree, it was the best. Totally didn't pick up the Halcyon track at the ending! Love it!

Haha, you're playing a "Scream" the movie-themed game... ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜‚

You must enjoy the cheese! ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿคฃ (Glad you dig the MK reference btw, haha!)

Awesome stuff all around. Have a good time boardgaming with your buds and enjoy your weekend!

I spoke at the Women in Tech conference in Columbus this week. It was my first time at a women's event and I felt odd for even submitting a session, but a lot of people encouraged me to do it and it's a way of investing in that tech community and showing respect to the event. It went well aside from accidentally turning off the room lights at one point. I want to continue to be involved in the event.

That is awesome, Matt, and really cool to hear your reasoning. You're clearly there for the right reasons!

And despite the lights mishap, I'm sure your talk was well-received. ๐Ÿ™Œ

Yes, I'm told it was ... enlightening. It was actually a pretty ridiculous talk with a stuffed dog on a table with a webcam and speaker and showing how various Azure AI services can replace of what my dog already does.
