Hey there!

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

All wins count โ€” big or small ๐ŸŽ‰

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Catching up with an old friend... or whatever else might spark joy โค๏ธ

Happy Friday!

We officially launched the Forem iOS app. Context on what that means here...

I feel like the win was seeing the tremendous organization and execution from @fdoxyz and @joshpuetz in coming up with really creative engineering solutions and pulling it all together to get it out the door.

I started working on a new issue with a coworker and we tackled it in less than a day!

Also, I'm finally getting back to work on an old project and fixed a variadic templated polymorphic component class to factorize some components in a single one (that's a lot of words to say "it works" ๐Ÿคฏ)

Two weeks ago a new member joined my team and he's been super productive since day one.

The win is that the onboarding I put in place to have him understand three different projects and not feel intimidated was good enough. He's already sent stuff to production for the most important piece of software and he looks very comfortable fixing bugs and traversing the project.

Best thing is he acknowledged it because things has gone on his favor and many of the questions he's had are solved by many of the docs I put up the effort to write ๐Ÿ˜…

I made the second official release (v1.1) of Answerable! This project is like my baby right now, so after some very busy months without working on it, it felt wonderful to be able to make some improvements.

Completed my T-Zone (Temperature Zone tracker) which can be completely controlled from app (via Bluetooth). You can place a device in each temperature zone, set the room name and then get all the current data from your phone via BT. You can even remotely start/stop logging to the SD Card. Then later you can retrieve the CSV file (via Bluetooth) which contains the room name, date/time, and temperatures which are read every 5 seconds. You can then graph rooms over each other to find hot/cold spots throughout your office/domicile.

Finished writing a Mongodb import from Mariadb so I can sync my old data with my new data, and am nearly done porting my older angular front end to use the Mongodb data. NoSQL for the win, as far as I'm concerned.

Admitting it and noting it down is so important. Helps in accepting failures as part of the journey instead of giving up altogether!
