I got this badge which motivated me to write more here:

DEV badge

Also, I wrote feedback for the homepage of DEV which was definitely worked on by suggestions with other wonderful people in this community.

I was mentioned for the first time for feedback in this:

I (finally) completed and delivered two proposals to potential clients.
I made a bunch of progress on two other projects currently in development.
And I made time to play golf with my son and take him to Galaxy's Edge (East).

It's mind-blowing if you're a Star Wars fan. This was our fifth or sixth time there. We didn't even go on Smuggler's Run (and we still haven't made it on to Rise of the Resistance) but we had a great time.

We went on Star Tours (for the millionth time) and got a completely new version, with lots and lots of Rise of Skywalker clips. Very cool.

Man, that even sounds awesome! Experience reports like this really make us poor Europeans question our existence haha. Glad you guys get to enjoy it. This is the way!

I launched! Well, I announced the start of something, at least, and I'm really excited for it all.

I put out...a podcast, and a website, and a roadmap, and a blog post explaining it all -

Putting my project out in front of people is an experiment, but I'm hoping it'll garner me some support, and help keep momentum high. 🤘

Learned a lot more about Istio, Envoy, and TLS. 🤯

Specifically, I learned about alpn, how Istio configures Envoy to route based on it, and how it can be set using OpenSSL's s_client. My path ultimately led to this... 😂

echo -e "GET /headers HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: s-07a0552a-e09a-4ac7-a4b7-f036921f99d7.cf-workloads.svc.cluster.local\r\n" | openssl s_client -quiet     -CAfile /etc/certs/root-cert.pem     -cert /etc/certs/cert-chain.pem     -key /etc/certs/key.pem     -servername s-07a0552a-e09a-4ac7-a4b7-f036921f99d7.cf-workloads.svc.cluster.local     -connect s-07a0552a-e09a-4ac7-a4b7-f036921f99d7.cf-workloads.svc.cluster.local:8080 -alpn istio

Started learning VueJS!
Just in 4 days, I've learned things such as (single file) components, computed and basic methods, watchers, passing data around and between components, and working with them, conditional+list rendering, props etc. And today I have learned the basics of Vue Router :)

VueJS is truly amazing, I'm loving it!

The next big step is to learn working with back-end while using VueJS for front-end

Last week, I put up a post dev.to/zakwillis/do-you-know-of-a-...
.
The post was asking if anybody knew of a tool to scan inboxes, encrypt and manage data, and save the results to a database or the like so I could do reporting on it.

In the end, I wrote my own tool in SQL Server, C#, using Mailkit. Planning to release it as a software tool. Took around 3.5 days to get core functionality working.

I squeezed out a responsive webapp with a database and everything, from blank page to working demo, in under 24 hours without using a framework. That's a first, timing-wise.

Zebra's DataWedge API - performing a scan doesn't automatically update the view in an Angular application. ApplicationRef.tick() saved my sanity.

I am leading a React codebase (by default) and I have barely wrote any react, Angular and Vue but never React. So now I'm feeling pretty pleased to have something displaying on a document I am working on that almost works.

My code went to production, and some serious money being transferred over the blockchain because of it.

I didn't even realise the scale of financial impact until the day after.
