My editor told me I was an amazing technical writer especially for a non-native speaker.

That really made my day.

At the beginning of the week I finished my 100 days of CSS art project! I can't believe 100 days have passed already! Plus, today I was able to optimise an animation at work using something I learned during the project 😁

If anyone fancies reading about my CSS art journey I wrote a little bit here

This week i was working on the oldest project we have and I did a deploy to production this morning. We all survived and that old big piece of software didn't died so it's a win for the team 😂

I haven't been able to blog regularly with other work commitments. I still managed to stay up late yesterday and push one article out today. I would consider that as a win. Here's me wishing you all a great weekend!!

Finally re-launched - Almost completely rebuilt from the ground up with a new look, improved navigation, way better lighthouse score and new user accounts. For anyone curious, it's built using Jamstack with Hugo as an SSG, Algolia for search, Netlify Forms and Netlify Identity for user management.

📙 I made a lot of progress for my book, Building Your Mouseless Development Environment. The formatting for epub / PDF is 90% complete, I finished the outline, and I wrote the first drafts for the first chapters.

I was approached by my country's digital technology department that is involved in accessibility initiatives in my country. To talk about the project DUST (Differently-Abled Upskill Training) which I'm teaching differently able individuals to learn to build websites using a low code platform over 3 months.

I gave 2 people (who were almost like strangers to me) some career advice!

I covered:

  • The software industry.
  • How to study efficiently.
  • About college placement cells.
  • Targeting big companies.

And most importantly, how to make time for a side hustle!

And I felt like...

I finished part 9 of the tutorial I'm writing, which took me forever to write. Some things in the project I'm writing about changed considerably while I was writing the code for the tutorial, while other dependencies had some issues... it was hard to finish, and harder still to review it!

Managed to get GlusterFS replica created and mounted on 3 node servers, and then automatically mounted on new servers as part of a terraform run. Being able to do that ourselves is going to save my company some serious money when we deploy our new application.

Means we don't need an external company involved in the building of a cloud in AWS, we can pick just about any cloud service now.

Received this amazing pull request to my app, and was able to guide the contributor to finally getting it merged. Not really my win per-se, but it sure felt like one :)

Dusted off my BeautifulSoup skills to scrape a results list from a web page, the layout of which makes a simple copy-paste ineffective. I'll be doing this daily for a little while probably, so automating a step is nice.

I'm always taken with how easy BeautifulSoup is to work with.

Pretty good couple weeks that my last year self would have envied this year's, created a podcast player that I'll be open sourcing when I get the time. Finished a project (if ever there's such a thing) and just started working on a new one, and it seems like I'll be working on another project when this one ends 😎.

My car's been misfiring and cutting out, so I fixed that with some cheap parts from ebay.
I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who's engine bay has seen the light of the sun on my estate in years and I felt kinda mechanically competent for a half-hour or so.
