For me it was close two stories in two projects I got involved few weeks ago,
Amazing feeling!

Also the team are using Agile and Git as it should be used and that's a huge plus and a great experience

Just finished and uploaded a new web dev tutorial on YouTube! It's definitely not perfect but I'm putting more and more work into my videos hoping to get a little more attention.

Travelled to TechBash 2022 and gave two high quality talks there on Machine Learning / Data Science / Azure Machine Learning, plus I got to meet a lot of other speakers I interact with on Twitter and a lot of other awesome people.

I have like a year without writing blogs, but yesterday I finished two.
Maybe is a little bit cheating since is the same blog but one in English and the other in Spanish.
You could find it here if you would like to read it dev.to/makinox/how-to-make-unbreak...

Woot! That's awesome. Thanks for sharing your work here on DEV!

I know that @franklin030601 regularly shares posts in both English and #Spanish, cool to see ya doing that too.

And hey, definitely not cheating! I know it takes work to do the translation and it's great to make it available for another audience of folks. Anywho, you are free to share works in Spanish here as well as English if ya wanna.

¡Ten un buen fin de semana! ✌️

I had a few small victories this week.

  1. I finally stopped procrastinating and started working on my portfolio website and GitHub readme. I've been "working" on them for like 2 and a half weeks and I've maybe done 1 line of code in each project lol.

  2. I started a personal challenge to try and write 1 post a day for the next week. So far so good lol

Did a talk on All Day DevOps. Set up a new computer and found out the new MacBook air is actually faster than the M1 Max!

Created new video/presentation template that I'm really excited about.

Also speaking at the London Java Community (virtually) next week. Finished the presentation and really excited about it. It's my best talk by far...

Awesome to hear about your speaking gigs!

Also, is All Day DevOps still sponsored/run by Sonatype by the way? I used to be a Community Manager at DZone and I remember working on it with them when they were first putting that conference together... it was a virtual conference ahead of its time (well before COVID) and I always thought it was really cool!
