I got a raise and released my app in the Apple App Store; waiting for Google's review before it gets released in the Google Play Store!
Here's a link for those curious: apps.apple.com/us/app/r-e-i/id1519...
Not only was it my very first app, but it was also my first Flutter project :)

Landed a full-time job as a front-end developer. I will be working mostly with Vue. Will also be involved in the UX.
Pretty excited to work with Vue, it has been a hectic 1.5 year, since I decided to quit my job and make a career change.
I still have a lot to learn obviously, I will be a greenhorn in the dev team, but hey, I am looking forward to it.

Technically this was the last Sunday, but depending on what you perceive as a week, I've finally - after a whole year and numerous attempts - redesigned my blog! 🎉 If you're interested you can read the whole story behind it right here.

My pull request for flower (celery worker monitoring client), to change it to be python3 only, was merged! Celery 4.5 (I think) will be py3 only but as a downstream client/app, flower didn't need to wait ("easier" but also unnecessary since we have less incompatibility issues/risks).

Small plug (for those curious to see what the code change was), the PR.

My win this week was to get macOS Big Sur beta running on an external drive and a Parallels VM. Which granted doesn't sound like much to many, but since I work with their platforms it's important to get a heads up before the release happens later in the year.

Almost a year ago, I started a new personal website, techuplife.com, and this past week I finally started averaging 700+ pageviews a day. Not a ton, but for a side project that's just me writing for it, I'm pleased with its growth so far.
