Sidenote: Since it seems that dev.to only updates a feed once a day. I've decided to write my blogs at the end of the day (on my Doogie Howser, haha) so they show up on my site the next morning.
- Professional : Like I said in the last post, I got to sit in on 2 different preparation sessions so that team members could practice talks that they have coming up. Pretty cool that is an option and people can get feedback on how to improve their presentations. After that, there was a company wide town hall type of event live streamed to everyone. The topic was about things that are upcoming. Pretty cool things to come. There wasn't a lot of time spent coding, but I did get the project running locally on my machine! There was a conflict with a library and the version of Node we had designated. Once I got that working, I was able to get the project up and running. Since I made some changes, I was able to do my first pull request to the project! Three days in! Even though it wasn't anything huge, still felt pretty good. I guess 3 is really the magic number. haha
- Personal : Once I got my pull request in, I went downtown to check out the Orlando IoT meetup. While I waited for the meetup, I decided to work on my site. Did some coding and when I went to run my changes locally, it seems that there were some newer versions of some libraries. In my brain, I was saying "Don't do it!", but what's the worst that could happen. Well, I found out. When I updated the libraries, apparently my TypeScript types or something got all messed up because files in the node module folders where giving errors when I try to build the project. Tried to update one thing and then something else would break. It was time to start the meetup, so I put it off for later. The meetup was pretty awesome. It was more like a thought experiment. There was a scenario and the attendees (split up into teams) had to come up with solutions using IoT. There were some pretty hilarious solutions. Got home and went to sleep
Today much like yesterday consisted of a lot of video meetings. Had a meeting with someone from the event management side of the team. They handle and coordinate what events we go to all over the world Then right after that, there was a weekly call with all the Developer Relations team members. After that, there was another town hall meeting. Basically a part 2 from yesterday.
Spent the rest of the work day implementing my notes from reviewing some tutorials for an upcoming product. Made a separate branch and push my changes there. Have a couple of questions for my manager so hopefully I can get a pull request done tomorrow.
As for my site, I think I'm going to just create a new project so that it will have all the latest versions of the libraries needed. Then I'll replace my borked package.json with the new one, delete the node modules folder and install. Hopefully that will fix everything. I'm too tired to attempt it tonight, so I work on it tomorrow.
Also need to work on this week's radio show. Maybe I'll start on that before going to bed.
Have a good night!
