I got my new site up on a new domain! since1979.dev and started a new series of posts with weekly-ish WordPress code snippets. :)


I was expecting something like Assembly or C++ with that 1979 :D nice domain name btw :D


Well I actually got a badge. The best Vue post during 7 days.
Thanks again DEV.to

This is the post that got me the badge:


I wrote a feature in pocketbook.cc that lets you share notebooks as a link so that others can read it.

Here's my notebook explaining how I made PocketBook: pocketbook.cc/saurabh/secrets-of-p...


I wrote and published an article everyday for 11 days. My goal was to keep it up for 30 days but life happened πŸ˜…. 11 days was a good run though πŸ˜πŸ‘


Bought a new .dev domain name for my personal website adityarao.dev.

Redid the styles of adityarao.dev for the new year.

Presenting myself as Front-End developer to everyone.


My win this week is that I’m on vacation until Monday and then it’s back to the grind.

Note: my work is not boring, I just liked this animated gif. 😎


My F# ray tracer post had some nice responses both here and on Twitter. I also got some more work done on my toy virtual machine.

Also started a new newsletter: citizen428reads.substack.com/p/new...


I finally started to share my knowledge about CSS (here on DEV) and present myself as a frontend developer in public:

eisenbraun.dev and on Twitter: @Mr_Eis

"by the way" I setup my first site with Netlify and it is amazing how fast and easy this process was.


I wrote my first article here at DEV and I've received positive feedback!

Also, I fixed a Stripe API backend issue after banging my head numerous times only to know that I needed to change the acceptable currency value from 'usd' to 'inr', all thanks to Chrome Dev Tools! οΌœοΌˆοΌΎοΌοΌΎοΌ‰οΌž


Well, not quite last week, but the week before. On Christmas day, Ruby released version 2.7, which contains some of my contributions to its spec tests and documentation.

The most visible difference is in the doc for ENV, where I've:

  • Expanded the introductory sections.
  • Added example code for most of the methods. (That work continues.)

Here are the before and after pages:

(I don't promise not to post separately about this.)


Remembering my day job after a week and a half away from it, and agreeing to give a lightning talk at CodeMash next week in addition to the 60 minute talk I've been preparing for.


Got my own domain and hooked up my website deployment with AWS amplify ! narenvadapalli.com. Will be blogging about the tech stack pretty soon in the blog section soon.


Not tech related, but finally decided to quit smoking. And sticking with it. πŸ˜‰


In the middle 2019, I submitted my website to Web Design Awards. Few days ago, I got an email from Web Design Team. The message is about announcement that in early 2020, my website will be displayed as a winner.


This was huge for me - finished Full Stack Open course (more than 200 hours of free time JS/React/Redux/node.js programming during 2019). I wrote a post about it: dev.to/laojala/full-stack-open-ref...


I completed my Tribute Page on Free Code Camp last night. I was so nervous and it took me several hours. Whew!


Started a podcast with my friends - not dev related tho


I started a huge side project with my ex-colleague that we will have to deliver by the beginning of February meanwhile reached the first 60K running milestone this week and finished the third day of the 100DaysOfCode challenge.

Been building out my portfolio/blog in React and finally found a look and feel that feels true to me. Almost ready to ship it!

I fully learned the (for me New) cqrs pattern. For this I create an example. Also I cleaned my desk too πŸ˜‚πŸ‘


Wrapped up and published a mini composer package I started months ago...


Now I just need to write my first blog post about it :)


I just published new version of the fcal 0.4.0
