I learned how to create a Flutter barcode SDK plugin this week. I've published the plugin to pub.dev and implemented a simple Android app for scanning barcodes.

I learned that if you feel like you have something to tell or show to the world - just do it instead of finding more and more excuses!

This year, with my new job, I was able to afford a virtual art class and I'm currently learning about the skeleton and human anatomy! :3

it's not really dev related but for a while now I've felt like half my brain is heavier than the other and returning to drawing is a way to level that out! 🎉

  • Do some CSS art. It is not complex but I like to create it.
  • Create Discord bot using Ruby. I love this language and I cannot find its practical uses other than Rails or Hanami. Ruby is suitable for Discord bot.

It's True - Dwight Shrute

For folks interested in the DEV API, check out our API documentation.

Also, @coffeecraftcode and I did a stream on the DEV Twitch Stream this week with @jlengstorf for anyone interested.

We talked about Jamstack, serverless, and had some fun pairing on a project using the DEV API and Netlify’s serverless functions. Check it out and if you aren’t already, give us a follow at twitch.tv/thepracticaldev!
