What was your win this week?

graciegregory profile image Gracie Gregory (she/her) ・1 min read

Happy Friday!

Looking back on your week — what was something you're proud of?

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Landing a new job
  • Making a list of awesome New Year's resolutions... or whatever else might spark joy ❤️

P.S. Refusing to make New Year's resolutions is totally cool, too.

AND for those of you who recognize the new year in a different month (i.e. a HUGE portion of the world,) thanks for bearing with all of this irrelevant New Year's content that's surely bombarding you 😂

Have a great weekend!

It's not my win but I had a holiday today so I visited my father's shop to help him. I saw stray goats were roaming wearing tshirt.

I thought who and why someone does that. So I asked and found that people are putting own old tshirts on goats so that these stray animals can stay warm in winter. This noble act of selflessness made my day

I learned enough of ProseMirror’s API to build a custom editor for an internal process at the company I work for. It’s a nice surprise to find a well-written library for such a specific application!

I added Balanced Septemvigesimal (Base 27) and Balanced Nonary support to arguments in SBTCVM's assembly language.

Context:

  • SBTCVM is a Balanced ternary virtual machine. aka it uses +1, 0, and -1, unlike binary.
  • Balanced Septemvigesimal & Balanced Nonary serve nearly the same purpose as Octal & Hexadecimal Do for binary.

What i learned: Working with custom notations of obscure non-standard base numbers, is even harder when there's 27 different digits involved...

got it working though, so id call that a win...

I worked out how to fill connected lines with ZIM Generator() - it fills only shapes but not connected lines - so I used the points of where the lines were going to fill a traditional ZIM Shape and it worked! codepen.io/zimjs/pen/jOMZjOy - woot!

Not sure if I can submit in middle of week.

Anyways I am gonna say "I finally launched my Youtube channel". I was always afraid of hitting that record button(may be I was having fear of failing in public or I was mostly concerned about right tools like camera, audio system etc...)

I started with the topics I am comfortable with i.e. ReactJS. I have planned full MERN development series starting this week itself. Right now I am posting one video daily not sure, if I would be able to keep that momentum in long run to maintain quality.

If you are reading this post and interested in full stack development you might want to checkout my channel youtube.com/c/gulshansaini

Please subscribe to the channel if you find the tutorials useful.
