Let’s see, it’s been a busy week…

  • Upgraded my workhorse from a 13” M1 Air to a 15” M2 Air
  • Solved a particularly sticky issue one of the juniors was having
  • Represented the dev dept. on a client kickoff meeting
  • Got invited to participate in a panel at a conference for a local college
  • Prepped things for a new project starting soon
  • Wrote a how to for adding sites to Google Tag Manager (which is much harder than it needs to be 🙄)

Like I said, busy week…I’m sure there’s more, but my brain is cooked for the week… 😁

We hade the best bug i haver ever experienced in my life 😂

Basically the bug proved that our chatbot increases sales by 400% on a Shopify website

Why? Because as our bug happened sales dropped like a stone in water for 4 days until we could fix the bug 😊

AINIRO and ChatGPT increases sales on a Shopify website by 400%

Some days you simply have to love the bug 🥰

Oh heck yeah! Definitely one of the biggest highlights of my week... and of course, we gotta prove it, right?

Andy Piper and I hanging out in real life... we're at my place, it's a close-up selfie style photo courtesy of Andy's extended arm... Just two geeks grinning at the camera. Good times!

Abso-frigging-lutely! I have it bookmarked with a keyword search in Firefox (though you could probably add it as a search option or something).

Just added it to my bookmarks and it even has a web development guide! I'll be combing this and FreecodeCamp to make some interesting projects.

I went to #AllThingsOpen in Raleigh, and attended some great sessions. Also, the hallyway track was excellent - I met a bunch of my online friends in person.

Got my first interview. I'm probably not the best fit for the company as they have not reached out to me again, but it's still a start and a big win for me.

I have managed to get a lot of stuff ready for my presentation on November 8th. I even put together a little YouTube promo video, which was challenging.

I also got my #Hacktoberfest stuff done.
