Sorry, but I don’t think this is the appropriate place for sharing this.

 
 

Launched my company website with satisfying Lighthouse results! πŸ’ͺ

 

The most satisfying feeling EVER. Getting a 90+ on everything with Lighthouse. BTW, did you happen to have used GatsbyJS to build your site?

 

Def a good feeling. No, I did not use Gatsby.

What language and hosting did you use?

Sorry for the delay! It's just plain HTML and CSS written from scratch. Some minor JS for forms and shared hosting on GoDaddy but fronted by Cloudflare for caching, DNS management, security.

 

What do you use your service worker for?

 

Congrats! Definitely an example to follow!

 

I passed 2 stages of a technical interview this week. Looking to the last phase on Monday.

 
 

I GOT THE JOB GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, Thanks for all the Love and support

 

I was on a trip and we climbed the highest mountain in that state! It was 1km high and views from the top were extremely pretty ❀️❀️ Also, this week was the first time I traveled in an airplane alone.

Ordered my Hacktoberfest shirt!

Complete Hacktoberfest Profile

I was super impressed that they had women's cut shirts, too. Most free t-shirt kind of things are purely unisex cut, which then gets into the weird situation where I weigh double my boyfriend but we're both "Medium". Unisex is not a good cut on any sex.

 

This week it's an easy one for me. As I was a speaker on a conference for the first time. I got to speak at GraphQL Summit about using Kafka with GraphQL demo is still spinning.

 
 

Found someone special πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆβ€οΈ!

 
 

I registered my first domain name at binyam.in with namecheap!!!!

 

Always love this topic. Helps to find a positive each week. So ah, thanks for starting it. :-)

This week I took a day off and just played with some code I've been "intending" to play with and never seem to find time for.

Project is simple/silly, but the stack is Go (+gorilla/mux) + MongoDB + Svelte. The Go+Mongo look to be the easy part of the whole thing and I had a functioning (if incomplete) API up in a few hours that was also delivering my SPA.

Svelte, on the other hand, looks to be more difficult. I usually want to see 3-5 different approaches to architecture before I settle on a path, and at this point there isn't a lot of real-world work that's not Sapper (which doesn't appear to mesh well with the Go-as-server route).

It was silly, and fun and went a long way towards recharging my batteries.

 
 

Started a new side project. Still in it's design phase though. I want to maintain this in the long run as well πŸ™‚

 
 

I killed 8k lines of code from an enterprise product, and integrated automated testing, code coverage, and NDepend analysis baked into the CI/CD pipeline.

I also finished my first product review contract work (it comes out tomorrow) and came to terms on a second item to be released in the new year.

 

My company hasn't done remote ever, but I still asked if I could go to Japan for 2 months and work from there, amazingly I got a yes. That was a few months ago, yesterday I bought my airplane tickets to Japan. 😁

 

Launched my first product ever in ProductHunt. Today!. And I was ever number one for a few hours! producthunt.com/posts/xatkit

I'd say this classifies as an exciting day to wrap up the week

 

Successfully accomplished a context switch from code to design!

I'm building an app (mylo) and with new features and ideas I often have to switch from a coding mindset to a designer mindset and there's always some friction there πŸ€·πŸΎβ€β™‚οΈ

 

Getting a project working in terms of routing locally w/ MAMP. Had to edit some Apache config files and create my own .htaccess file. Good learning experience though!

 

Started at a new team with others techs that i don't know very well and I'm learning a lot and doing great!!

 

My standing desk was delivered and I just got it all assembled this evening.

So I went with the black desktop. Really excited to start working on this badass piece of office furniture.

The big win of this is it’s a 1000$ CAD desk that was on sale for 439.99$ + tax and I had awards points from work for some cool stuff I’ve done over the past little while, so the grand total came to 27.94$.

 

Moved back to my Mother-Land after being 3 years out of it!

 

I released the Flume Cloud Services'SDK πŸŽ‰

Here is the package page: github.com/flume-cloud-services/sd...

For this occasion, I also updated the Documentation website πŸ“„: flume-cloud-services.github.io/docs/ to help you using the SDK.

We are still looking for new contributors if you have new service ideas or want to improve something don't hesitate to open a pull request!

 

I've started learning Vue.js :)

 
 

Getting remote position after 5 months in IT after career change

 

hey, you mentioned on your profile you want to work? are you working with puppeteer right now ?

 

Hi Rudra,
Yes I am searching for a opportunity. I used to work with puppeteer few months ago.

 

I've realized my first homemade slider for a react project using Redux instead of adding a dependency πŸ˜„ It needs some improvement (it always does) but it works. I've never thought I could do something like that a few months ago πŸ’ͺ

 

Just found out today that I was hired for my first software development role with a publicly traded firm.

Moving from IT Services & Infrastructure Management to full-time React Dev working on internationalization as a first project!

SO EXCITED!!!

Can't Wait!

 

Got an email that I am eligible for a Hacktoberfest tee and stickers.

 
 

Launched my open-sourcy blog thecodecousins and contributed to a Google open-source tool πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

 

I contributed to a library published on npm for the first time this week!

 
 

Started the 'Django for professionals' ebook by William Vincent, so I'm learning advanced/intermediate Django stuff and also Docker

 

finally set up a #dataPixy profile on dev.to & got back to blogging after years of no posts ...

 
 

This week I gave a talk at work about Hacktoberfest, and the coding club that I helped set up for my non-technical colleagues! 🍺

 
 
 

Just submitted my app to Google play!

 
 

The democracylab project I'm on got a project manager and another dev! It's gonna happen, I'm really psyched about it.

 

I bought a I pull up, parallel bar and kettlebells to do calisthenics in my own yard. To keep my mind clean and focused.

 

I got asked to build a JS course on Educative.io which is awesome

 

Released my side project hotbackthen.com/ - An archive of twitter trends by location.

Lots of fun with APIs and automated tasks.

 

Yey! I finalized a feature implementation which was ongoing for the last 2 weeks (Android ViewModel + Repository architecture) πŸ’―

 

Got motivated and started working on the side project which was inactive for a month
