Congrats! Not to be a downer but last week was a breakup on my end. It's better for both of us and about as amicable as possible I suppose πŸ˜…

always exciting to see it work out between you 2 kids though! πŸ’πŸŽ©πŸ₯³

Does spending more time with family than coding count as a win? Because I feel like it should and that'd be mine 😁

  • Went to production with the complete refactoring (both frontend and backend) of an old tool with terrible UI experience used by our Community Managers: I felt very happy seeing their starry eyes while using it.

  • I wrote my first plugin for serverless framework. I had the opportunity to learn a lot about how it works and to simplify a lot the post-deployment process of our app.

Finally nailed down the breast stroke at swimming lessons! πŸ’ͺ😎

Yesterday, I finally nailed the technique for breast stroke at my swimming lessons. It was also the first time that I pretty much did laps non-stop.

For seasoned swimmers, probably not a big deal, but as a kid who did not learn this properly, it took a while to get it right as an adult.

Successfully removed sprockets & webpacker (rails) in favor of just webpack in a project that has been neglected front-end wise since the beginning of it. Im pretty proud.

Assets are now generating in 20s instead of 1.2minute, one docker images less is building, 7 gems less, JS is smaller and loads faster.

Overall build on CI went down from 12 minutes to 7-8. which is huge if you are doing X deploys a day.

I have finally gone in one night from scratch with that repo which I've called Hashtag and fixed all the paths in Wallstant which is intended to be an abondonware like another attempt to create such site, a guy who wrote a sorte of clone of instagram and called it hashtag.io (which the domain name is taken) it's why I have renamed it Hashtag Social Network as I said last week in the week win thread when I've talked about codeurdejeux.com and seen some opened accounts that I have dropped from the database

Sheldon Cooper - An accident

And then wrote a story on medium to keep my motivation up to fix other issues and continue to make amazing GitHub repos forks fixed, up and running

Sheldon Cooper - I didn't really say that

Thank you Jess for your positive energy your weekly thread helps focus more
