Not programming related, but super excited that my first mystery novel, "Noah Clue, P.I." releases in paperback worldwide on Sunday!! EEEEEEEEE!

I also just got word that the Elliot Bay Book Company in Seattle will be carrying it in store in their mystery section!

It's really kinda surreal. I spent several minutes yesterday just staring at the Barnes & Noble page for the book, hardly able to believe this is real.

YAY!

Hey Jason,

congrats!

How did you learn writing?

I've been coming up with stories my whole life, growing up in literary circles, as my mother is an author and editor. So, as you can imagine, I read a lot of books, both with my mother and on my own. (I read through the complete unabridged Wizard of Oz series by myself in one summer when I was six.)

I joined my first professional critique group when I was eight; I was told I'd be welcome to join, but they'd expect me to accept the same unvarnished feedback that any grown-up member would get, and to read their work and provide the same sort of honest feedback. So, I did.

When writing professionally, you really learn that nothing you write is sacred. Even the sentence you think is the most brilliant, or the quote you think must surely be worthy of Bartlett's Quotations, might actually need to get cut from the book. Most people are okay coming up with words; the art of writing is largely in getting rid of words.

From there, I just kept writing, participating in critique groups and countless writing workshops, and honing my craft.

I am proud of creating JSitor, which is an alternative of JSFiddle, JSBin and CodePen.

I won't say that JSitor will be the best tool but definitely it is worth to explore. Give a try and share your feedback. I would love to hear from you guys.

I'm proud of maintaining an Open Source library called Morphism since 3 years. Even though there are not so much stars, last year it registered 7K NPM downloads, and this year, at this time it reaches +35K NPM downloads 😊.

In many fields of mathematics, morphism refers to a structure-preserving map from one mathematical structure to another. A morphism f with source X and target Y is written f : X β†’ Y. Thus a morphism is represented by an arrow from its source to its target.

I guess I'm most proud of something non-career related.

Since childhood, I've had a terrible posture and it only got worse throughout college and when I started working. I've had scoliosis and kyphosis, and I was a year or two away from needing surgery to fix it.

My girlfriend motivated me to get a personal trainer specialized in posture, and after 7 months of regular exercises and progress tracking, I'm almost finished in fixing my posture. Exercises were simple and very effective and I didn't need to buy anything to perform them. And I also could do them at home. Each month I would get a new set of exercises targeting different areas of the body that were needed to correct the posture.

So I also want to encourage anyone else that has issues with posture to seek help and try to fix it before it gets worse. Posture exercises are great and you'll feel much better after a month or two of regular exercises.

Maybe when I will have some free time I will write it all down and opensource it.

Im proud of getting second at the national stage of a programming contest! The project i submited was this logic gate sim. The creators of the first 5 best-rated projects by the judges competed in an additional hackathon (24h) with the theme of "teaching others about cyber security". For that one I made a jsbin - style node playground with security - related nodejs challenges. (Its not online cause it wasnt that good - i only had 24h lol). Overall i really enjoyed meeting other guys of my age interested about programming and ill decinitly participate again next year:)

Not only will it be my first run at a premium SaaS app, but I'm working through a bit of a funk after seeing Flare's launch last month. Still pressing on, because regardless I just want to finish what I set out to build!

You know what they say about the last 5% of development taking 95% of the time, it's too accurate.

That I'm now more than eager to put the idea forth having a data store, which preserves all versions in a space efficient manner. Furthermore, it allows efficient queries on each revision, reconstruct a revision, to revert to a revision and commit a new revision while preserving all revisions in-between...

I've been working on a redesign of the docs site for Orchid. I've even been taking the time to learn how to use Figma, with help from the resources I asked for earlier this year in this thread.

Here's a link to the Figma project, and the WIP of the redesigned site.

There are still a few things I'm slowly tweaking here-and-there, like the exact copy and content for the homepage, and the color/design of the new logo. But I'm pretty darn proud of myself, I've never really considered myself much of a designer before now!

It's an online Java thread stacktrace analyzer that runs completely in your browser. I forked it from the original project started by a guy at Spotify.

But what I'm most proud of is the domain name. It's a nice domain name. But the best part is that the TLD was on a huge sale, so I registered it for 10 years for basically peanuts.

After needing a new computer and wanting something that won't crap out in a year or two I finally decided to build my own. After some digging online on what was needed and how to do it, I built a p.c. for the first time! It's lightning fast and I can easily upgrade anything I want, but I may not have to do that for quite some time. I could have built something cheaper that would have gotten me close to the same reliability and performance but I wanted to treat myself since I always have cheaped out and gotten low-range laptops so I figured it's time for some good stuff. Now I can finally do some development work and practice because my laptop could no longer handle an IDE, so I am behind of where I want to be. Below is the build sheet for anyone interested.

Case: Phanteks Enthoo Luxe
Motherboard: MSI MEG Z390 Godlike
CPU: Intel i9-9900k
CPU Cooler: Corsair H150i Pro AIO
GPU: Gigabyte Aorus 2080Ti
RAM: 64 GB GSkill Ripjaws
Storage: Intel 660p 2TB SSD NVMe

I can't show it off, but I finally figured out Entity Framework.

Last two days was me banging my head against it for work, for an ASP.NET webpage. I just could not get the data to show. Then my data would show, but it refused to show any data for any related tables.

Then finally today, about halfway through the day, it all clicked together and the data appeared.

Now it's just a matter of finishing my models.

Welcome to passmefaster.net

Guess I have to be proud of it because it's my first job as a dev! It started life as WordPress and Native (now Standard) AMP.

For a newbie like myself, overcoming the lack of JavaScript for the mobile menu was a bit tricky.

  1. Although it's WordPress, I've still tried to make it as bespoke as possible.
  2. Themify Ultra theme, but using Gutenberg editor rather than Themify Builder.
  3. Performant design - Stackpath, Cloudflare, W3 Total Cache, etc. 0.2-second TTFB on standard hosting.
  4. PWA - simple progressive web app using stock AMP service worker.
  5. Charge monthly rental, but upgrading site for free as my skills improve.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be most welcome, guys. Thanks.
