I have a few ideas,

  • Writing more articles on devto (duh)!
  • Contributing to Open Source, for the sake of Open Source. I am seeing (coming from South Asia) the trend of doing "Open Source" for "glamour" or part of Uni prestige. I honestly just want to do it because I feel really passionate and happy about it. For example, I can spend 2-3 hours doing this thing for this Open Source project ... just because I love what the project is doing
  • Listening to more podcasts. In fact, just this morning to "Every Commit Is A Gift", Great talk!
  • Participating in hackathons and DevRel stuff. If I start coding, I just can't work on something for 1-2 hours, and then completely forget about it. I'll probably be coding on something for a week to make it better and better, like a sprint. DevRel seems easier to do. If I like something, I might just lurk on that something's forum and answer questions! Makes me feel like I "belong' to a community
