What was your win this week?

Hey folks ๐Ÿ‘‹

Hope y'all enjoy your weekends!

Looking back on this past week, what was something you were proud of accomplishing?

All wins count โ€” big or small ๐ŸŽ‰

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Enjoying nature ๐Ÿƒ

My first article on freeCodeCamp got published! ๐Ÿฅฐ

It's one of my big wins because freeCodeCamp helped me a lot at the beginning of my webdev learning journey. So it feels good to give back to the community. โœจ๏ธ

Wrote about and made some code contributions to Postmarks, social bookmarks for the Fediverse! And then, we went camping ๐ŸŒฟ ๐Ÿ•๏ธ

Loving the setup! Hope ya enjoy the great outdoors, Andy. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿš™

Also, excellent #fediverse post โ€” love the idea of postmarks and being able to share bookmarks. ๐Ÿ™Œ

This reminds me that I previously relayed a feature request for adding a similar mechanic to DEV in this GitHub discussion called Allow folks to share reading lists. I think I may have to go back to this one and advocate for it. ๐Ÿ™‚

It would offer a brand new way for folks to be able to interact with content... build a link list of posts you like and share it. Plus, it would jive well with our current reading list. It's a win-win... the person building the list can organize their reads and hopefully get some cred for sharing a cool list + the authors of the posts in the list get to have their posts shared in a collection and seen by more folks.

I finally am getting attention on a side project I have been working on for years! I haven't been very good about promoting it, granted, but it's still good to start seeing other people using it.

I've got another brilliant idea for a project and made a poster.
I've also launched a waitlist for the project so anyone interested can join!

  • Took a half day on Friday, just to slow down and relax.
  • Refactored a messy piece of code that was giving me stress. Mainly due to the said messy code was written by me. I was trying to follow my own advice., and it was a good choice.
  • Resumed my learning journey with Go

I finished a whole 6-week program and even though I didn't complete the project, I submitted the weekly updates made it all the way to demo day (which is tomorrow Sept 16).

Also, I'm not totally sick after all that odyssey!

Bashed together a shell script (see what I did there? ๐Ÿ˜‚) to automate some of the manual processes that were tripping up the juniors when starting a new project. Itโ€™s not done yet (still have a few more actions to integrate), but as a 1.0, it totally works.
