Made one of my hobby projects open source and deployed it to npmjs. It's an Angular component:

looks a lot like what Muhammed Erdem made a few months ago:

Exactly, my goal was to have a similar Angular alternative for that. This is why I reference that project at the end of the README and my LICENSE file contains the license of the original version as well.

Cool, didn't read that file. Good job and glad you gave him credit.

Amazing. How long did it take you to develop that?

Thank you! Well it is not easy to tell this. I started it roughly half year ago, but there were several months when I did not work on this project. My estimation is 40 hours. 🙂

Thanks Luciano,
To be honest the dark mode switch used in the app is from an NPM package (react-dark-mode-toggle). It's not what I built from my own.

My last tech talk was an absolute train wreck - barely got there on time, only got to rehearse driving 4 hours there, had to redo my slides from scratch when I got there (leaving a typo in my company name and two major points missing, only one of which I caught while presenting) - but it was still very well received (save for the one guy who closed his laptop, put it in his bag, and walked out, when I said, "If you're looking for code samples, you've come to the wrong place. This is a philosophical/architectural talk").

I got a request to do a code assessment! I did the practice one they sent over and am currently reviewing the parts I didn't know before I attempt the actual assessment. I also got three rejections and an email back about what I should improve upon! It's all part of the process.

From last week's win:

I gave constructive criticism of the latest episode of a podcast I listen to (it was on a subject I've focused on pretty intently for the last year+) which, in hindsight, could have been taken much differently (text is dry, especially since my email was a freaking Tolstoy novel).

Instead, one of the hosts emailed me back thanking me, admitted that they were in a rush and winged it without show notes, said I'd be getting a shout-out in the next episode, and asked if I'd like to be a guest doing another episode on the subject!

Got my shout-out: dev.to/stereoplegic/i-m-not-really...

And the other host also emailed me to confirm that he really wants me on the show to talk about React Native persistence and sync solutions.

This week I finally "got" JavaScript. I even started to enjoy it!

I taught myself HTML and CSS 16 years ago, as a kid just starting secondary school. I never wanted to be a developer. I just wanted the skills to build my own website. That was until those skills landed me a sweet front-end job... with no knowledge of JavaScript. I was lucky. I started studying it a few months ago, but convinced myself nothing was sinking in. I was NEVER gonna get my head around JavaScript...

Until this week, when I solved a tricky challenge effortlessly... and then another... and then another... and then another. I found myself seeking challenges out, looking for problems to solve just because I knew I could.

Turns out I was learning all along, and things were sinking in. My low self-esteem just wanted me to give up. :D

My win, was that 9 days after hiring 2 juniors they (despite never talking to each other before employment with us):

  • completed a Greenfield project, devising their own work strategy, test coverage, approach to several problems and "team" communication style. All with zero input from me. The code was good enough that other than nit picking at a few typos, I couldn't fault it, and it made me smile to read it.
  • Succesfully delivered 2 bug fixes (before being included in a Sprint), including learning our development kit.
  • Succesfully participated in their first Sprint Planning.

When I hired them, considering one has never worked as a dev, I told PMO "don't expect to even be talking to them for a month after they start."

Boy, do I look daft. 🙂
