I really loved your site. Great work.
man this is a terrific site, I really like the "tick" sound when putting dark mode on ;)
I managed to issue a good amount of work while spending time with my family at a family gathering without yelling at everyone because they always talk to me and distract me while I code 😠
This time I stayed cool, I managed to give really productive bursts of focus to my work (did not take a holiday) while family members were doing something else and I actually stepped away from my keyboard a few times to spend some quality time with them 👪
Sounds like a pretty darn good week
yes it was ! realizing that work will always be there anyway and that one should always be able to step back from it from times to times is indeed a win :)
Absolutely. For me this week had some similar wins because I really made it clear to myself what I needed to get done, and then when I got it done ahead of schedule, I was able to take a breather. Without making it clear what I was even really trying to do, it's hard to feel like you can take a breather.
soooo true, it's so easy to get lost in a web of todos for how we would ideally achieve something instead of stating clear actionable and reasonable goals
congrats! That's a great point to get to. 💪💪
I changed the way I plan out my week and it made for a very productive and sustainable week for me.
It's just one week, if my system really keeps working well I'll definitely make a #productivity post about it.
I think sharing your #productivity post is a good idea. It could be very enlightening and inspiring to others.
I actually opened up my laptop this week several times. Sounds dumb but I've been in a slump.
reached 500+ video subscribers at youtube after a year of work. Slow but very happy with it. here is my channel if interested - youtube.com/channel/UCFIwa5Eqf4kN1...
Just subscribed! keep up the good work!
thank you so much! you just made my day
I'd love to connect with you on linkedin or other social media platforms

I learned about the importance of network in my career. As a junior developer, people at my age might overlook the importance of personal branding and network in their career. This past week was a really deep journey for me to understand the importance of these factors and that's actually the reason I joined this community looking for mentorship and interaction with brilliant people
Was able to convince a few people at work to use it as a replacement for Google Meet. Still needs a lot of work to be usable across all browsers and mobile devices.
Completing my first session of CISSP exam prep.
I got Phoenix, Nuxt.js, Postgres and Caddy all running in containers and talking to each other. I applied for a job that built their apps on Phoenix and Nuxt, so I wanted to try playing with them. I didn't get the job, but I had never used Elixir, Phoenix or Nuxt before, so I consider that a win!
I built a whatsapp chatbot with python for sending my friends the link to join online classes based on what day it is.
My win this week is that I returned!
I got hired last october and I've been far from my usual dev communities (github, dev.to, stackoverflow) because I didn't have much time... But now I'm slowly picking them up again. I think it will pass some time until I write a post again, but at least I answered some issues and PRs in Candle, started answering again in SO and commenting here.
I don't want my job to take all my dev energy, so this makes me happy :)
I posted a small article (Lost in comfort zone) on LinkedIn this week. It is about how I faced the struggle of comfort zone. I'm happy I wrote this.
Good article. I could relate.
Thank you. I hope things go well for you. One good thing was, at the end I felt happy because the things I have acheived were more than I expected.
Recently I came to realize that Jotto 2020, a game which I created 14 months ago for a software hackathon contest, had the potential to become a world-wide pop culture phenomenon.
As a contest submission, the game finished poorly in the standings. As a form of leisure, the game was received well by "word-nerds" like myself, but it never really captured the imagination of anyone. Pride was not something I was feeling then.
Today in 2022, I can look back to that time with a semblance of pride. Perhaps my creation was not merely a quaint, esoteric little puzzle game. Perhaps it was actually something special after all.
@tonedef71 you should definitely feel proud. You were very creative and followed through with many aspects of this game. It sure was not merely a quaint, esoteric little puzzle game. With the latest (Jan 31, 2022) NYTimes story of them acquiring Wordle, you should continue with your creative efforts. Good luck!
Found out how to pass env variables to react (spent a long time trying to resolve this and guess what you just have to prefix them with REACT_APP_ to show up). Plus worked out how to host stuff on Okteto via a docker-compose.yml
Not the best portfolio out there but yes I tried to make some vital commits this week.
Cheers on the updates ! It's quite animated but I can see the direction you're going for. Your blog article on shit coding gave me a good laugh 😂
My 2 cents is that you should look into connecting a domain name and submitting it on Google ! Get that SEO juice 🧃
No I've learnt it, how would I work on react without JS. By the way, Why would you think that though, did I made a mistake.
