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?

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.

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).

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.

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.

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?

Sorry, it's true.
