I had two big milestones: I submitted my first book proposal and detailed outline to a major publisher. I also submitted my first course proposal and detailed outline to a major online learning platform. Both of these were at the platform / publisher's request, so we shall see what comes next.

Also, yesterday morning I got details on what my first project as a consultant will be, and it's right in my wheelhouse: a combination of dotnet, Azure, and engineering leadership.

Woot woot! Very nice Jyothikrishna.

And look at the lovely embedded button. Saw the Hex calculator you're cooking up too. That's a cool idea! 💡

This week has been phenomenal for me as I crossed the thousand follower mark (my deepest gratitude to all of you!). Moreover, I sealed a deal with Apress to pen a book! It's quite staggering, to be honest. I'm swamped with emotions and filled with humility and thankfulness.

Oh wow!! That's awesome, Rain. 🙌

And it all makes sense, you've been sharing some really excellent articles. Major congrats on both fronts.

I finished CS50!! This was a major achievement for me. It's also been one year since I got my first real IT job; last time I posted here too, which is about to change. But finishing CS50 made me more comfortable with things I feel very uncomfortable about, like web development.
I work for a very small company as the only programmer and haven't had the chance to learn about and practice methodologies like SOLID and ViewModel stuff. So I'm starting a web app in ASP.NET to practice all that and more :D I will also be documenting my progress here on
