Congrats, Hannah!


Congrats Hannah, Keep going up


Congratulations, Hannah! All the best with your new job :)

Congrats Hannah, best wishes


Thumbs : )


Congrats! And me too!


Congrats to you as well!


Congrats Hannah


Sending good vibes.... congrats!


Cool man, congratulations 24* stars now :D :D


Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡


Finish first draft of my ebook on Ruby one-liners and started editing. Hope to finish the changes and publish the book next week. Noted down some interesting changes, for example:

I shared my curated learning resources on a twitter thread for Python beginners tips - pleased to see it being received well.


I was elected to the EuroPython Board of Directors! So, that's only sort of REALLY EXCITING!



Congrats. In case people want to read up on it.


Got some movement on my main project and its siblings: some stars, one more member in the team and a few PRs!

By the way, the team (to discuss a programming language development) is still recruiting!
So please let us know if you're interrested.


Are we making a language again? Maybe hit me up : โ–ท
Did work recently on an ML related language effort, and more recently this github.com/active-logic/howl


I'm not quite sure what you mean by "hit me up" (english is not my native language), so I'm inviting you in the team. Feel free to ignore it if I misunderstood. ๐Ÿ˜„

French maybe? "hit me up" probably means "let's talk about it?" as you perhaps mentioned you needed some kind of help?
Language-wise exp covers a little bit of Tree-Sitter and some Boost Spirit. Did hardwire a couple of parsers in Java and C# too.

French, yes. Reputedly not the best at foreign languages.
Thank you for the clarification on hit me up.
I'm mainly searching people to discuss Gwion's development. But, let's face it, the docs needs some technical writers (it does not seem to be a skill of mine ๐Ÿ˜„).

Hey I see. The first step here regardless (for me at least) would be installing and giving it a go esp. since domain specific

I'll post a tutorial tonight (tonight a +5:30GMT), showing how to build Gwion, which (hopefully) end with a web page outputting sound from gwion. It's a special Hacktoberfest one because the html/javascript part deserves improvement ๐Ÿ˜„.
I also provide a way to do just that by using mdr to automate the whole process here.


This ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿฝ


Yay to this.


Completed the "JavaScipt Algorithms and Data Structure" on freeCodeCamp ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜‡


Hey Peter,

My win: I pre-announced that I'm launching a content strategy program for developer advocates. โ˜บ๏ธ I started working on it earlier in the summer but had to table it due to some other life things, and this week decided to reimagine it. I'm formally announcing it in October.

I also cross-posted my first article in seven weeks on DEV Community! Again I'd been balancing work, life and writing so I had to put things on the backburner for a while. Things will continue to be busy but I'm happy with these small successes.


Creating two React Apps, one with a Node/Express backend and the other with a Python/Flask backend that connect to a HarperDB database. Deploying them both to Netlify/Vercel. Also creating a new and improved Resume and transferring my domain from HostGator to Namecheap which should reduce my annual costs. And finally writing a post on "What I realised after learning Python, TypeScript and Kotlin" which got lots of recognition.


Made my first dev.to post today! Very fun experience overall.


I finished the vomit draft of my book which has a working title, The Seniority Trap!


Closing an issue for a database migration from Heroku to AWS. It involved GraphQL + Web Sockets + Serverless + AWS. Very exciting ๐Ÿ˜บ.


We've won a new badge this week ๐Ÿฅณ



Ow where to get this kind of badges?


Just finished a frontend project for $200 in 10 days. I know it's very low but i am in my third year at college ( from mining engineering), so it actually means a lot to me. Thanks :)


I'm giving fish shell a proper chance. My win was that I was able to replicate the setup I had in zsh. It's all here.


I moved all my site to netlify, it really simplified my deployments and surprisingly increased my lighthouse score a couple points. I also launched my wife's portfolio site built with vue/nuxt danikadraws.com/


Completed my first react project, it is a twitter clone built using React as Front End & Firebase as Back End.

Got to learn a lot, and messed up lots of things in between.


Good thing about messing things up is that then you get to debug and learn even more!


Yes, that's how i learn things, just dive in and mess things, and at the end, i end up learning a lot.
The idea is to get out of the comfort zone and try things out.


๐Ÿ“™ I've began the second draft for my book Building Your Mouseless Development Environment, and it goes way better than I thought.

I hope 'll be able to send an early sample of the book for the subscribers of my newsletter next week!


I had a good week with a couple of wins:

  1. Made my first merge request to GitLab. Only my second ever attempt at contributing to open source. Makes me want to do more.
  2. Made great progress with Terraform and Ansible at work. Our new infrastructure (dev) environment is about 85% ready. That means or staging and live environments are about 80% ready.

I completely overhauled my portfolio this year but in all honesty it wasnโ€™t the result I wanted. It went from being informative to minimalistic but probably not in a good way.

I changed that this past week and thatโ€™s made me really happy. Itโ€™s more maintainable and I hit 100/100 for desktop and mobile page speed scores.

I wonโ€™t be launching it for a few more weeks because it reveals some secrets but just really excited to know itโ€™s ready to go.


I got offered a full-time position with the company I'm currently freelancing for; pay raise included. Moving to Ireland as soon as flights are available ๐Ÿฅณ


My first pull request at my new job was merged!


Being grateful every day :))


I started to learn Python and I made my first application


This week I managed to wrap my head around JavaScript Promises. I was struggling with that for a while but it finally clicked for me.


Start writing on dev.to :D yeah, I hope this will be "that"


Successfully launched an old python2/django1.8 project with python3 & django2.2. Tons of bugs.


I gave my first talk about Chaos Engineering, including a piece of integration Iโ€™ve written myself. Didnโ€™t work out perfectly, but good enough to make me want to talk more about the subject! โ˜บ๏ธ


Taking a break from coding, OSS, tech communities... I plan to go even more off the grid next week.


Learned how to create CICD pipeline for Pega application ๐Ÿ™‚


I decided to become better and more compromised with my job. I started by blocking the web pages on which i usually procastinate. A success thus far


I started learning scala, and python. Interesting turn for a short time for spark and scala.


I got 100% for one of my CS assignments, 90% for the other and 95% for my test :)


I finished the course to unity 2020 c# development, and learned how to rig virtual cameras


I implemented OAuth for the first time in my life in a React project after brainstorming for a week.


I made my first ever Discord Bot for Radio? (Need support and attention may be?)



I bought a new car!!


Started a project that leverage use of existing API's.
Its short project from the angle of development but its usable.


I found out that I'm just providing lame excuses and procrastinating things instead of learning android development for my goal and web development for my mini project.


I surpassed 300 reputation mark on stack overflow!
