This week was awesome, I got to get a ton of real-world xp by applying my skills to a project that I really wished existed in the first place. And I was amazed by the response it had from people so I wrote about it too!!! I hope you like it too!βš‘πŸŽ‰πŸš€

Great job!

Do you have any recommendations for tutorials for animations?

For characters specifically, the okay samurai youtube channel is great (he works on Character Animator): youtube.com/user/okaysamurai

For animation generally (with After Effects), I've found the school of motion youtube channel to be awesome: youtube.com/channel/UCAhdxqdrDN3gW...

Congrats on your promotion!

I didn't quite get much done this week, but I'm glad it worked out for many more people around here :D

My bins weren't collected, my fridge broke down, but I had the patience to turn things around, I lept for my keys and got into my car, and and .. I ran out of rhyme but I survived this week and that is a surprise.

Not cool fridge

Exciting week for me! I launched my first web app using Python, Flask, and Heroku. About 2.5 months of effort went into it and overall the response I've received within my groups has been positive and encouraging. Excited to keep building and connecting with more developers ❀

  • Making a really important hotfix from business perspective
  • Clearing out requirements and successful investigation for IDScan integration into our product. It will save so much time when it goes live. Looking forward to integrating it now. : )

And this is the repo on github, in case anyone has any advice regarding the code πŸ˜…

I published my latest post after a lot of hard work and editing. It might not have gotten the traction I wanted, but, instead of looking at that as a failure, I'm going to continue to refine my approach and learn from the experience. dev.to/rossta/the-webpack-plugin-i...

To be honest, using dev.to for the first time and actually trying to talk about my projects. Took only 3 short years after I registered here :D
I quite like it here, so expect me to drop into your comments if you do awesome stuff.

Watching the Forem announcement on DEV was pretty exciting :)

And on a more personal note, I did a physically-distanced hangout with some friends, and that was pretty cool.

A couple:

  • nuxt-highcharts - Highcharts module for Nuxt framework
  • nuxt-test-utils - nothing too exciting here, just some utils that help me and, with any luck, may help others.

But, I think my bigger win is having a revived motivation for getting things done. I felt like was in a procrastination rut for way too long.

I wrote and deployed an interactive Twitter bot and got loads of engagement and feedback.

And I wrote up what I learned from the experience in a DEV article:

For me, finding dev.to has been really important this week. For years in various roles I've been a contributor to online forums, but normally in the games development space. Finding a great community where I can learn, write and reflect on more mainstream topics is very important to me.

So this week I joined dev.to, read an article, got inspired and wrote js-coroutines - something I've needed (and apparently a bunch of other people too) for years. js-coroutines allows you to split up heavy processing, sorts, JSON operations etc across multiple frames keeping 60fps.

Here's my article on how it works.

I've had great feedback, learned loads, built and open sourced something fundamentally useful. Weeks don't normally get to be that successful. So it's corny I know, but thanks dev.to community.

Dived deep into Spark internals. The 5 hour talk by Sameer Farooqi is a gem for people who want to learn Spark. Did a couple of Datacamp courses on Spark - really very basic but wanted to get them over with. Recently completed a little project for a client using Spark with AWS Glue. Looking for more challenging problems to solve with Spark over the next couple of weekends.

Did a Google Authorized training on their Data Engineering offerings - covered BigQuery, Bigtable, Dataflow and others.

I would say it was a good week!
