What was your win this week?

Hey there!

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

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Getting a new haircut... or whatever else might spark joy ❤️

Have a wonderful weekend!

This week I got in touch with an old friend who I hadn't heard from in a long while. So nice to reconnect with my bud!

I found a volunteer plum tree in my back yard (which I strive to keep mostly untended). I recall walking in my yard two years ago, eating a plum. As I was done, I chose to throw it into the field. It's very likely past me saying hello to present me.

Which reminds me of a great proverb: The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best is today.

I got back into streaming on Twitch after about a month and a half!

I hung with @ajcwebdev today talking about all things RedwoodJS!

The App Framework for Startups

Redwood

by Tom Preston-Werner, Peter Pistorius, Rob Cameron, David Price, and more than 250 amazing contributors (see end of file for a full list).

Redwood is an opinionated, full-stack, JavaScript/TypeScript web application framework designed to keep you moving fast as your app grows from side project to startup.

At the highest level, a Redwood app is a React frontend that talks to a custom GraphQL API. The API uses Prisma to operate on a database. Out of the box you get tightly integrated testing with Jest, logging with Pino, and a UI component catalog with Storybook. Setting up authentication (like Auth0) or CSS frameworks (like Tailwind CSS) are a single command line invocation away. And to top it off, Redwood's architecture allows you to deploy to either serverless providers (e.g. Netlify, Vercel) or traditional server and container providers (e.g. AWS Render) with nearly no code changes between the two!

I finally didn't feel useless in pair programming sessions with much more experienced developers. That's a fun feeling!
