- Saturday : Made quite a bit of progress on my side project. Got it so that a user can fill out a for and send a request to do show and tell. From the dashboard, I can see the request and then either approve or deny the request, which shows up on the users submission. If it's approved, a countdown shows up, if not a reason for the denial is shown! Then it was time for the radio show. As usual, I had a really good time. The recording of this week's show is at https://kNOwBETTERHIPHOP.com
Sunday : Had a productive but chill day. Did my laundry. Got a Twitter integration working on my side project. Not only can a person sign in using their Twitter account, they can post tweets from the site. If there is a song on the audio player they like, they can tweet it out with the artist's Twitter username. There is a task list on the site and if they send a tweet, their done items will be in the tweet. To help get the word out about the site, I'll be running a contest with the tweets that people share. Part of that will include a special hashtag that will need to be included the tweet to be counted. I can enter that hashtag into the dashboard and the user site will automatically change. Pretty cool. Then I watched episodes of "Fear of the Walking Dead" and "Gangs of London".
Professional : Had a couple of meetings. Got to talk to some team members. Looked through the codebase to see if I could find a method. Helped out a person in the community. Not a bad day.
Personal : Feeling good about the side project so far. Trying to keep things as simple as possible now. Once it's launched, I want people to use it and make changes based on feedback. I don't want to spend a bunch of time on functionality that may change once people start using it. There's like 2 weeks left before launch. Just got to work on it a little everyday.
Going to work on the tutorial section of my side project. If someone doesn't have something they want to work on, there will be a list of different tutorials and resources they can use. There will also be an option for logged in users to submit links to resources they like. I'll be able to see the links in the dashboard, get the metadata for the site and add it to the list or delete it. I'd like to try and get that working tonight. After that, I think there's one big part left for the work session site and it's going to include setting up another domain and some URL shortening. Both of which I have done before. We'll see how it turns out.
Have a great night!
