My ebook "How I became a programmer" is officially published on Amazon. 📗
First ever PR I submitted for Apache Camel is approved and merged. 🐪
are we allowed to post links? Would be good if people can click a link that directly brings them to the Amazon page of your book.
I just tried to tap on it then read your post :)
I already created a blog post with a link to the amazon. :) There is no need for agressive marketing since i am not a full time writer. :D
Ej Djordje bravo!
Nice work !
Thanks a lot Joe!
Pushed up my first code review at my new job 🚀
That's awesome! It always feels great to commit to the team's repository!
Getting that todo list done is such a great feeling!
I published this article, with an interesting meta lessoon:
Frankly the article was not hard to write. Nothing groundbreaking. And by using the interview format I delegated half of the work to someone else :)
.... and yet that's my most successfull article so far!
We are so often obsessed with impressing our peers - that's what developer conferences are all about - that we forget that there is a shitload of new developers in this industry, plus a shitload lot of developers switching to new things
=> Lowering the bareers to entry is at least as important as trying to expand the sum of all IT knowledge
finally I have designed svgs for my personal projects
started to use storybook at work
deep dived into advanced types of typescript
launch a template and cli for reactjs:
get a weeklong vacation after 3 years working nonstop.
I was finally able to make chatkit chat work perfectly
Started mentoring a developer from Russia. 🤗
oh, awesome task! I would love to chat with a Russian :-)
I'm seeing the light at the end of a tunnel of a feature I've been working on for the past month.
Oh man. I feel this so much!
I'm still nearing the end of the tunnel for a feature (erm epic) that I've been working on since June. 😂
I pushed the beta version of my black hole X-ray spectral model, one of the last big hurdles to my thesis work. Also, was able to put out a post on Dev on Monday night, the second consecutive week.
I'm trying to get in the habit of posting regularly even though I'm busy finishing up my PhD work and preparing for my SDE position at AWS, so I don't have a lot of free time. I'm proud that I'm able to do it two weeks in a row and I'm going to go for a third.
now you can learn Context and Hooks :-)
Had our potluck at work this week. I made hot chili. It was disappointing. Not sure what when awry, since it is the same recipe I've been using for years. :-(
For my daughter's party & sleepover, I made Mississippi Crock Pot Roast with homemade buns (because I couldn't find any suitable buns at the store), and it was fabulous. :-)
I finally made my first open source announcement on Dev, HN, Reddit, and Twitter 
I had it ready to announce for a couple weeks but wasn't sure of the best way to approach each channel.
My responses were mixed: Good on Dev and HN, poor on Reddit and Twitter.
Along with generally good feedback on the project's main premise, I've had a few issues submitted, a PR contributed, and an official Brew maintainer helping me get the Brew formula approved.
I consider the launch a success and look forward to hearing how the tool is doing in the wild.
Note: I have several oss projects across several github accounts, but I never did make launch post for one until this week.
Scored four interviews days after being laid off. Taking some of my own advice.
I made it through my work's Christmas dinner.
I had a big client meeting which went quite well.
But most of all, I learned :vertical ball
Was finally able to construct a CI/CD pipeline for multiregion k8s cluster application deployment.
There was a lot of diff repos and manual scripts that would change CI/CD pipelines with different cloud regions. Now its all with one setting in gh repo a Dev would need to plugin.. say an app needs to go to US and EU they would set a parameter regions=US,EU and that would deploy an app to different clusters with different set of configs that apps point to.
Another win for me was to be able to use my google home mini and create a mini k8s cluster , its kind of still in the works but was able to say "hey google create k8s cluster"
Completed my project and hosted it :D
A tool to create minecraft servers easily.
Do check it out at cyoms.tech
Launched a frontend for a project I've been working on via Netlify. Launched the backend for it on Heroku and have been learning Mongodb the entire time. Super out of my comfort zone, but I'm really excited to shore up a few final pieces and share out an MVP :)
Finally understand MVVM(Model-View-ViewModel) Architecture
I created my first open-source organization on a Github: github.com/Chronoblog
Posted a new starter for Gatsbyjs: Gatsby Starter Chronoblog Hacker
Redid the way Github actions work in the Gatsby Theme Chronoblog repo
Codebar shared an article about me on Medium 😆 Season's greetings and happy Friday everyone! medium.com/codebar-stories/evie-sk...
I learned ViewPager2 and implemented it in a demo app.
I also launched this arcile about Migrating Gradle from Groovy to Kotlin DSL
The first two was supposed to be my win for last week, but I included them here since I didn't participate last week:
To me, the small things also warrant the mention too.
Getting my Team Lead to say "I'm 100% satisfied with your work"
Amazing Doaa. Good luck for your new journey.
I finally launched my side project - Binged!
Ever feel like you are watching too much #Netflix. If that thought has crossed your mind then you should definitely check out Binged at binged.herokuapp.com/
Finally began using typescript after literally weeks of procrastination.
Had a baby!!!! 💪
Finally getting to understand how to cleanly insert contents in a file in emacs lisp...
Implemented a Redis cache on one of our clients systems in an API that wraps around another external API. Request times went from averaging 2s to 30ms. Big big wins! Thankyou Redis :-)
Got my first (real) test code pushed up to our new project at work. I'm diving into Cypress and having to learn a lot as I go, but loving it so far.
Learned Golang, gRPC and implemented a small demo project!
I bought a new laptop. I'm so glad. I'll start hacking again after my old dies.
My article got published on Python LibHunt twitter.com/PythonLibHunt/status/1...
Began learning React (again) and successfully integrated one of our React apps with Okta
Taught one of our dogs to sit/stay
Hit a new squat PR
Packed up most of my things and made my big move down to London!
1.Started learning back-end with node.js.
2.Finished strings section from a2oj categories and now I'm confident in strings with intermediate algorithms.
