Preparing for my week long bootcamp front-end block review... 😱
Building the frontend to a news site for which I already built the backend at the backend block review.
Can't wait to have my first full stack project completed. ☺️

Learning front-end development! Spent my whole careers as far away from UX and users as possible, but the hard realization is: no user no product!!! And no decent UX no users...

Having a lot of fun tho!

I've been doing a lot of "sandbox" coding lately, where I just do random stuff for the sake of experimentation. No frameworks and unnecessary bloat. Just playing around with HTML, CSS, and JS! I also like reading CSS Tricks to see if I can learn something new.

A small monitoring system for personal devices (desktops, laptops, smartphones, etc) that can be self-hosted outside of the local network (e.g. on Heroku).
It features a local agent that runs on the device and reports to the server via WebSocket, and a web GUI that shows availability and info about the system. Here is a super-duper-early prototype :D
prototype

For now, it only reports the operating system and the status, but I'm integrating hardware info and resource monitoring.

The next big challenge will be porting the agent to Android.

I'm trying to hopefully finish this weekend the PR I began two weeks ago. 86 commits and counting but it's definitely worth the effort 😃.

Playing around with a private Gitlab sever and simple CI toolchain (gcc, valgrind, gcov, etc.)

Have a personal C-utilities (threading, strings, image-proc, etc) library project that's been the guinea-pig.

Already found 1 massive memory leak and have doubled the branch-coverage of the UT!

Building a PHP CMS. It's a bit of an oddity and I'm considering calling it something else, such as a content presentation system.

Basically, it's built to accept content from any source you define a suitable interface for, eg Markdown, a database etc. In that respect it's not dissimilar to things like Gatsby, but dynamic rather than generating static HTML.

I just got back to my android side project. I reverted master to a commit from 15 August last year, my last google play release. I lost a lot of progress but I had implemented so many features, it was probably going to have a negative impact on the thousands of users.

Also touching up on my personal blog. Im super hyped about cross posting to dev.to from my site

Implementing a data structures library with Python. This is part of my goal to solidify my knowledge in data structures and algorithms which is something I've been neglecting. Also reading materials from Introduction to Algorithms (CLRS) and doing Havard's CS50 course on edX.
