I finished reading the Basecamp Shape Up book. Blown away by how this methodology helps teams effectively build projects.

Next week’s goal is to write a summary post on my favorite things it teaches. πŸ‘πŸΌ

Recently, while working on one of my tasks to process a very large AWS S3 file, I came across this really good AWS S3 select feature. This helped me accomplish my task and decided to share my learnings with the community 😁

Hope the community finds it an interesting read πŸ™

P.S. Publishing a new post on is always a big win for me 🀭

For reasons beyond my grasp, I (and my language) was praised for my programming skills quite a few times this week.

This is surprising because it don't really see myself as a programmer, rather as a beginner.

But I have to admit it made me happy and felt like a win πŸ˜„

I finished building a GitHub Action that updates other GitHub Action Versions in a repository, kinda like Dependabot but for GitHub Actions

GitHub repository:

GitHub logo saadmk11 / github-actions-version-updater

GitHub Actions Version Updater Updates All GitHub Action Versions in a Repository and Creates a Pull Request with the Changes.

GitHub Actions Version Updater

GitHub release (latest by date) GitHub GitHub Marketplace GitHub stars GitHub Workflow Status

GitHub Actions Version Updater is GitHub Action that is used to update other GitHub Actions in a Repository and create a pull request with the updates. It is an automated dependency updater similar to GitHub's Dependabot but for GitHub Actions.

How Does It Work:

  • GitHub Actions Version Updater first goes through all the workflows in a repository and checks for updates for each of the action used in those workflows.

  • If an update is found and if that action is not ignored then the workflows are updated with the latest release of the action being used.

  • If at least one workflow file is updated then a new branch is created with the changes and pushed to GitHub.

  • Finally, a pull request is created with the newly created branch.


We recommend running this action on a schedule event or a workflow_dispatch event.

To integrate GitHub… post:

Completed a book: The Subtle Art of not giving a F@#k
That makes 2 books in 3 months.
It's tough to take out time when you're mostly busy in full time job. And that funnily makes it even more important to take some time for yourself and do things you love.
