What was your win this week?

Hey folks! ๐Ÿ˜€

It's Friday again. Hope y'all have had a good week! ๐Ÿ™Œ

Looking back on this past week, what was something you were proud of accomplishing?

All wins count โ€” big or small ๐ŸŽ‰

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Eating a delicious cupcake ๐Ÿง

Harry Potter flys forward on a broom into the air and towards a big cupcake that he gobbles up. The video is doctored and is a scene from one of the Harry Potter movies... there was no cupcake but it was superimposed into the frame to make it look like a screaming Harry on a broom flys up to it and eats it.

My win this week was my birthday. I had an amazing day with friends. Also, I updated my LinkedIn account and planned my studies on Notion. This week solidified my vision for my future. I aim to become a full-stack developer this year and secure a job in the field. I'm confident it will happen.

Additionally, I want to express my gratitude to the community. Everyone here is so kind and supportive. You all make me feel welcome and enthusiastic about what the future holds. Thank you so much!

Hi there ๐Ÿ‘‹ I started writing articles for 30 days on RiotJS and creating a production application. I consider Riot the simplest and most performant JS front-end we can create, but it is poorly documented on the Internet.

โœ… Fourth day done: dev.to/steeve/riot-component-unit-...

English is not my native language. Hopefully, my writing methodology will improve and get faster.

Thanks and have a good Friday!

Awesome stuff, Steeve! I checked out your post and your writing is great. And, like you said, the more you write in English, the more comfortable you'll become with it and the better you'll get.

On that note, we have loads of folks in our community who are from different parts of the world and English is not their first language. I think there are many people like you on DEV who are practicing writing in English here and improving with every article. So, please keep on writing, you're doing good work and in friendly company here.

And BTW, if you'd like to write in Frenc too, please feel free to go for it! You can always post 2 copies of your articles (one in each language) if you want. I've seen many folks do that, for instance @jmfayard, and sometimes people will add language tags like #french. Anyway, don't feel like you have to do any of that, but just to let you know that you can if you wanna!

Thanks for your kind message and amazing support @michaeltharrington !

I will definitely continue my writing practice, my end goal in a couple of weeks is to write scripts for tutorial videos in English (speaking in front of a camera is a big step).

I noted your tips about writing in french too, I'll translate my Riot articles when I'm done :)

Thanks again and have a great day!

If cupcakes aren't your jam, I've cooked up a burger that'll make your taste buds throw a party! Juicy beef, melty cheese, and crispy veggies all in one glorious bite. It's like a flavor explosion that'll leave you craving more!

Haha, my apologies for the burger temptation! Maybe we should start a new coding rule: for every line of CSS, you earn a burger bite. Imagine how deliciously efficient our code would become! ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’ป

Hahaha! You might be on to something there. Maybe call it Burger Bytes or Byte to Eat and you could have other snacks too! ๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฆ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฅ™

We should create a little CSS restaurant to house all the different CSS snack creations folks have been submitting. Maybe that could be Byte to Eat haha!

After my career transition, I've been working for almost a year on my first job as a front-end developer. Yesterday I have received official feedback from the Performance Management and it was very positive and I'll receive a bonus for my performance in 2023. I am really really glad with everything that happened to me this past year โ™ฅ

The past month or so I've worked on a big release of company internal component library. Got it out on Thursday right before company demo session. People seemed to like it.

I split the thing into three packages from being one monolithic package. That solved a lot of issues. No more Styled Components in the main package. Tree shaking works as it should again. Can provide CSS imports from the library instead of making people use boilerplate code to get the components going. And went through almost all of the documentation to match the new reality. Made everything look more like company design. Also so much easier to explain things when everything is neatly their own thing!

So a pretty good week even though I've been way too tired throughout.

I re-contextualized the following datastorytelling for the enterprise I'm working fo. My goal was to show peoplewhat could be achieved with a global datacentric approach around :

  • strategic corporate goals
  • People
  • Applications
  • Datasets

Essentially, I've used UN SDGs as a metaphore.

And the benefits that may come out of this, like answering complex questions with chatBots:

Not international Olympic games in sports, to be precise, rather olympiads in mathematics, informatics and other science fields.

For sports, athletes rarely participate in that many kinds of games that it would be worth cross-checking their performance and using one sport to predict another.

Last night I turned in my final project for my next-to-last class in my master's program. The final class will just be a massive project I conduct on my own and I'm not worried about it, so I now feel like I'm on the happy side of getting my master's in data analytics. This class had a dark souls difficulty level associated with it. I need a 26% or higher on this project to keep my 4.0 intact.
