Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project

One of my Android projects required me to write custom Gradle tasks which turned out to be quite messy for me due to lack of knowledge with the build system, leading me to learn a lot on how it works. I ultimately found the fix was really simple but I felt good on learning the new things.

While working on an another project, I thought I could improve the existing logic by abstracting the logic a bit more using dependency injection. This lead me to learn fragment constructor injection using Hilt but ultimately I felt it was over-engineering and backed off.

Both situations allowed me to learn a lot more this week and I feel more confident that I know my tools better now.

Now gonna enjoy my weekend by playing COD 2019. Have a nice weekend as well everyone.

I had my 1 month review in my new job and it went really well, despite a very rough start. I had a family bereavement just after I started and it's made it difficult for me to settle in. I was a bit worried the feedback wouldn't be good but they were very understanding and recognised the things that I've achieved.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Glad you landed somewhere that's supporting you.

Got my first beta reader for my upcoming book on leadership in software development! Took me about six months to finish this draft so it's great to get people reading it.

P.S. I'm looking for more beta readers if any developers fancy reading an early version! ๐Ÿ˜‰

We started a new site this week with the idea of teaching programming and talking about experiences of working as developers and QA automation engineers. We prepared and designed everything for about a month.
And this week we went public and we already got our first subscribers to our newsletter.

We are really proud and happy. We are enthusiastic about the future and have many ideas that we want to make. This week was really successful! And I hope that in six months I will have the same spirit and motivation about it.

My friends and I decided to share our pet project with the world in the form of a promotional content just to see what people come up with using it.

๐Ÿชจ Removing Bootstrap 3 from another legacy site as same as 5 years ago when I started my DEV account:

I would have imagined if I am doing this in 2022... Next week I hope I remove Boostrap 4.6 by replacing it with Bootstrap 5.1 or 5.2-beta ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€ ๐Ÿš€
