My major success this week was shipping a change to the DEV feed. Right now it's doing the same thing it did before the change, but the change makes future changes way easier. Which should help us continue to improve the "Relevant" feed as well as be transparent about what goes into the "Relevant" feed.

So happy to hear that! I'll postpone my article about why browsing Latest instead of Relevant gives you more actually relevant content xP

No need to postpone it; it's going to be a bit of iterating to improve the "Relevant" feed.

If you do post it, please ping me. I have a post that I'm kicking around documenting how we build the feed query.

Being consistent at writing(at least one holy post per week) is kind of my most incredible win so far. Writing about numbers, and I am not trying to flex, but in a span of one week or so, I was able to generate a hell amount of traffic, and I am only two weeks in. But, thinking about this number makes me feel anxious.

holy molly

Anywho, Keep up the grind, folks! Remember to express your authentic self and stick to the schedule!

I learned to do CRUD operations with the Google Sheets API (so I can hack on my own cheap clunky AirTable-like taylor-made app') ^^

USING GOOGLE SHEET AS A DATABASE. WAOH!!

yay ! it's pretty cool when you dont need a fancy db, for a small app for instance; so if you persist and access data that way, just be mindful of the fact that if a lot of human users interact with your sheet, your program is bound to be more complex with tons of validations and checks... but if the sheet is not editable by a lot of people, it serves a lot of use cases, proof of concept here => github.com/yactouat/sample_php_goo...

Made some changes to our CI with a new job to automate a few things that also integrates with a bot that messages our team on specific occasions.

I know it sounds vague, but it is very product specific. Anyways, Gitlab CI is just awesome and it was a lot of fun writing the scripts and all. 😁
