I got accepted to KCDC and had some of my first interactions with Microsoft as a brand new MVP. Also, I got a ton of stickers in the mail from Dev.to!
Got those stickers too. Kids grabbed them all ;-)
They were huge!
How did you get? I also want
Posted a lot. Got good traction for articles and was contacted by the team.
But I guess you can just ask anyone on the dev.to team.
The sticker pack is also available in the forum shop if you're curious!
That's cool. Seems to include some things that my pack didn't include.
Launched and made huge progress on an open source Python project I'm really hyped about! It's been a long time since I've coded for fun so I'm really excited to be going all in on this project
Basically it abstracts out all the math and code for building really beautiful geometric animations/tracings such as these in just a few lines of very readable code:
The project's only been live for a few days so I've got a long ways to go but I have soooo many ideas that I'll be building over the next weeks/months
chris-greening / spyrograph
Python library for drawing hypotrochoids and epitrochoids in just a few lines of code
spyrograph: elegant mathematics and geometries
What is it?
spyrograph is a lightweight Python package that provides an expressive and flexible set of tools for drawing beautiful mathematically driven art. With just a few lines of easy-to-read code you can start analyzing, visualizing, and exploring elegant mathematics

Awww yeah! This looks so dope, Chris. I'm wondering... could this be used to make a visualizer for music?
Ahhh thank you thank you!!
I did a quick experiment where I incremented the input parameters, saved the resulting plot, and then stitched the results all together into this GIF:
Visually it's super reminiscent of running synth through an oscilloscope which got me thinking about tying this into some music stuff, really optimistic about what I can do with this library as I keep building on it
Off for the week enjoying some snowboarding!
Ooo, I made a ski track in the forest
Yeahhhhhh 😎 enjoy Nick that's sick!
My latest post got some attention in various channels. Was on an advisory board call and felt I provided good feedback.
Picked a lot of talks for a major conference as part of another advisory board.
Finished another chapter and getting really close to the finish-line of my new book. Recorded videos for another conference.
Congrats Medea those are some fantastic accomplishments!
When I came back to coding about two years ago -- after a 15-year layoff -- I started an online bootcamp in order to sharpen my skills. I finally got around to finishing it this week. Learned a ton. Very pleased with myself.
Yay Dan that's great! Best of luck on your continued learnings, can't wait to see where it takes you :D
I adedd a few new features on my new laravel project
BTW I wrote my first post here
I'm starting a new project. It's going to be a mobile application in Flutter. I love it when I have a lot of ideas for features to implement in it.
I'll give you a like when you finish it.
Haha, only joking. Best of luck!
(but still no like yet- get off Dev and back to work)
A little taste of where I'm at right now. It's very basic navigation but I can install it on several different platforms.
As of today:
Current Project Status Below the dev card
Last tab was me trying something with a bit more interaction.
Rewrote a load of our system management shell scripts to make them much easier to use (writing a series of posts about that as we speak), and discovered the amazing ShellChecker VSCode extension in the process.
Also successfully convinced my boss that as our customers are pretty quiet at the moment, we should spend the next sprint upgrading to the latest Node LTS version! Wish me luck...
Finished and deployed a side project. It’s a job board for people looking to hire Venezuela talent working remotely.
On the way, I taught myself NextJ, Prisma and Vercel.
I successfully upgraded an old react native app from version 0.6 to 0.7 at work 🎉
I learning not to use arrays when writing BASH scripts when shell-scripting. :-/ :-)
I had a pretty great week for work 😊, my main focuses have always been front end but I’ve started working more with PHP lately, learning on the job and worked with different controllers, models and wrote my first unit tests! After that I worked on some front end working on some old code and built my first vuex store, mixin and created some funky coloured icons depending on their status. Overall felt pretty chuffed and challenged 😊
Installed a habit tracker app on my phone (called Habits /Android/) and started tracking a few things: drinking enough water, working on my side project, etc.
