I do have kind of a persosnal win. About an hour ago I wrote an article on dev.to about my first accessibility check on a website. The goal would be to now reach out to the owner of the website and the company actually applies these changes and therefore helping to make the web more accessible.

The feeling while doing this a11y check.. It felt so fulfilling, like, doing the right thing, doing actually something good. πŸ’œ

Good luck. Too few companies prioritize accessibility until they get sued, which I've seen.

Thanks!
I'm creating posts in my mother language (Spanish), and I see a pretty hard to reach others in Spanish here... but I'm trying: I'm the Spanish tag moderator, and I see around 20 posts/week in Spanish.

We got another dedicated user on our twigflo.com application who shared with us "I'm telling everyone I can, I'm a believer" -- so we feel really good about that. It's not the kind of application people understand right away, it is designed to shift mindsets -- so every excited user feels really good to us.

I was finally able to solidify a Performance tool at work. Our platform is pretty solid and scalability is fairly well understood. When we have issues though the PE testing gets to be more specific.

Our test framework operates at the API layer and creates mocks for third party connection. This is perfect to covering different situations and Test stability/speed.

But Jmeter and other PE tools don't really expect to also manage mock while running.

So I wrote one a while back that used all the existing test tools. This week I was able to make the PE leavers customizabe, including the ability to delay and mocked endpoint.

This was extremely valuable to run many different scenarios over night.

As a software engineering manager I realized my help is needed with pushing some parts of the project forward not refining the process further. So I coded a nice chunk of serverless service

Getting the COBOL track going on Exercism. It was more "our" win than "my" win. Without the team it simply would not have happened.
