Cleaned my room this week!

Also livestream coded for the first time!

 
 

Well done dude! I have been streaming for about 2 years now and made affiliate on twitch this past August. I've been thinking of streaming some coding instead of just gaming. What kind of project did you work on?

 
 

Hey when are you streaming. I want to do it my self but I'm not sure what are the right platforms

 
 

That's amazing, love your series, looking forward to reading more of it :)

 
 

I made this Learning Path - Roadmap
Roadmap - Learning Path

I also started a youtube channel and got a very good response

 
 

Right!

I love it so much, + It's open-source.....

 

I did my first step in CI/CD. Finally, I learned about unittest with Python and I set up a pipeline on Bitbucket to automatically test my personal project! So I have my CI step completed, and I am ready to make better codes. Next step, Implement continuous deployment!

I'm very happy with this new tool in my toolbox. It improves development speed helping to focus on coding.

I don't know how many years I've been programming, I've always thought that in the next project I will implement it, but I never took the time to set up it until now!

 
 

I was waiting for this post. I was going to share with the whole community, how proud I was about my new revamp made to my personal website, amruthpillai.com. But I just recently lost a job opportunity I had, because of COVID and feeling really bad. So I guess I can't count my wins this week.

 

Hey Amruth, I absolutely love your website! I'm sorry to hear about your job loss. Keep your head up.

 
 

Got New Rdoc Merged into Ruby Core!

Over at Reddit/r/ruby, @ioquatix, on the Ruby core team, saw my plea about reviews and merges for the Rdoc I've building for Ruby. He's taken an interest, and is working with me to get things moving.

In my AboutRuby project I have doc patches for all methods in Hash, and for all but the last two in Array.

TL;DR [Previous lament]

I've been working on enhancements to the documentation for the Ruby project. Getting these enhancements posted to the Ruby project has been very slow. They're not actually meeting resistance; I know because my many PRs for enhancing class ENV were accepted (though not rapidly). It's just that everyone is busy.

Anyhow, I'm stashing all this stuff on in my own project, called AboutRuby. The piecemeal migration from there to the Ruby project is not going to be completed in my lifetime (I'm 77 years old).

 
 

Put out 2 blog posts this week!
JavaScript Execution Context & Lexical Scope
and
AWS Cloud Practitioner Exam Cloud Concepts

Also got a freelance gig creating content for a cool platform. exampro.co/

 

I believe I've done my work smarter way not harder way this week.

Instead of reproduce bugs in the UI.

I made a couple of unittests and start to debug from there.

It saved me a ton of time because I didn't have to test my updated code in the UI.

Just simple ran the unittests. :D

 

Dev.to tweeted out my article.

twitter.com/ThePracticalDev/status...

Was following a series "1 article a day till lockdown ends" thought of stopping it, because the articles were hardly getting views, and now this article has over 600 views.

Will keep writing.

 

it was really fun to learn more about Bem syntax with help from @pp :)

 

Started my dev.to blog!

Also discovered Exercism where I started mentoring Javascript

 

Win of the week was converting a hybrid go/php script to Golang only and made it at least 5 times faster. Even without spending time on performance optimizations! Very cool to finally do this!

Another win was that I posted a tutorial about how to set up Github Pages and automate the builds and deployments. It was challenging, but a great experience! Link here for those who are interested: roelofjanelsinga.com/articles/how-...

 

Got 8 stars on my Github repo. github.com/nishantwrp/drf-starter-...

That may sound childish, but I was really overwhelmed about my project getting stars from people I don't know for the first time.

 

Wrote my first blog post.
Been sitting on a piece of code that, I thought, was pretty cool and would be useful to others. I really wanted to start writing blogs but the whole imposter syndrome thing kicks in. Today, I just had a free hour and thought why not just do it?

 

I made an important presentation about 12 Factor for all Americas Staff (Brasil, EUA and Canada).

And I make it work the first version of my CSV Viewer for Linux Command line!

 

Got over my fear of developing terraform modules.

 

I’ve been wanting to learn React for some time now and I finally started it. Built a couple of small projects too, which was nice. Also added a new feature to my Markdown Editor project to let users export their document as a pdf file.

 

You should sync the preview scroll position with markdown scroll position

 

I've released a beta version of my first SaaS! It is free for developers!

For anyone interested you could take a look at it here: quizapi.io

 

Apprendre les bases de javascript

 

I became an author at Pluralsight and got my website featured on github education's student pack gallery (nyamador.me).
Doesn't seem like a lot but considering my age I feel great! (19 years)

 

I learned Docker and used it to deploy my local COVID-19 project to Digital Ocean πŸ˜„ cvt.vgreyes.com πŸ˜„

 

Made a Game with PWA, Swipe Gestures. In this game, you need to select if a number is odd or even and it's a quest to get to the high score in 60 seconds. Link to play the game oddneven.netlify.app/

 
 

This week I've been refactoring an auction website in real time, quite a challenge but the responsive version is looking amazing, eager to finish the project to share it 😍

 

A new cli in rust to help with most commons commands in docker!
github.com/jcaromiq/adh-rust
new commands on the way!

 

I finished and submitted a mobile app that helps kids (and adults) to learn how to properly wash their hands (according to WHO instructions): washem.app #hygiene #handwashing #covid

 

I completed my twiliohackaton project this week, it was a fun project, learnt something new in the process. πŸ€—
dev.to/godwinagedah/stream-my-pc-s...

 

Learning back the basics of Web Development in general. :)

 

I wanted to get back into programming and created a daily lightsaber generator. It launched this week twitter.com/dailylightsaber

It was awesome getting back into this on a project.

 

I posted a "learn react in 20 miuntes" on youtube that's doing great!

Feel free to check it out:

I wanted to start it long ago and now finally I've started Machine Learning course by Andrew Ng on Coursera.🀩🀩

Suggest another resources if you know any!

 

I redid my personal business logo from an ancient Illustrator file into an SVG:

github.com/pontiki/pontiki.github....

 

Setting up an office table for remote work

 

brought our build down from 40 minutes to under 30. great learning experience

 

Competed in a 3-day game jam and made a pretty fun game, if I say so myself!!
(playable online :D)

I didn't get a win this week.

In fact I was laid off.

 
 

Reached 4000 Followers on DEV 😍

 

Presented the first prototype of a very interesting project - coming out quite well!

 

Using the time between two project to rework our slowest tests into unit tests with dependency injection to avoid hitting the database has made them take fractions of a second instead of minutes.

 
 
 

Rebuilt my portfolio site using GatsbyJS and started posting on here more frequently.

 

Finally finished my react-native side project. Also started reading a Java book.
