What was your win LAST week?

graciegregory profile image Gracie Gregory (she/her) ・1 min read

Hey!

Apologies for the lack of a weekly wins thread last week! Somehow I drafted this but forgot to publish it.

That said, it's never too late to celebrate your wins. Let's talk about what you're proud of from LAST week.

All wins count — big or small 🎉

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Cleaning your desk ... or whatever else might spark joy ❤️

I'm looking forward to reading what you accomplished last week 🎉

Better Late Than Never

Organized my life on Clickup. I have a lot of projects there related to personal goals and biz ideas and what not, but it was left in the dust.
Did a big clean up and I am very happy with the result :)

Last week I got a React website to talk to Mailchimp...finally! 😂 It took a few hours to get configure the API & helper package right, but it was great feeling to see the emails going from the website's subscribe form into the Mailchimp audience list. Whew.

Last week, I and my team had a meeting to discuss about “Big Refactor” for our React web app which has been built for a year. I investigated and made a long list of “refactor items”, by doing so I improved my refactoring skills. Hope everything going well and not break the app

Sounds super! The platform is prime for making some refactoring at times.

A little over a week but I was able to finish porting my portfolio site over to React! Lots of fun learning about state management as well as using Netlify's serverless functions to serve some data as well!

I made a discord server for my programming language, and there is very useful feedback there, importantly, we started talking about adding traits and algebraic effect handlers, but also we live-coded a plugin to manipulate bitmap images, based on a libray made by a collaborator.

Also, not last week (I think), but the tour of the language now as a great interface.

I finished reading the book, Get Programming with Node.js
A nice straight-forward fast read written clearly with great examples. Highly recommend.

Picked up 50 or so Github stars this week that, I gotta say, felt really good. It doesn't take a lot, but it's nice to know someone is using something I made.

Doing stuff rigorously, in a manner that I felt was really good. I'm sometimes ailing with sustaining pace in places where the obvious challenges seem to have evaporated.
