I finished my master's degree!!
Congrats ! 🎉
I had two actually one was pretty huge!
Huge news! I accepted an offer at Cloudflare! It is a pretty significant career jump too but most of all the company culture is awesome and they are in tech 1st company with a focus on web security
I became a "Trusted" user on Dev.to!! SUPER awesome considering I love this platform and community so much.
Completed #100DaysOfCode 😍🥳
I'd do this if I had more time. Hold on.
const smile = createMoreTime();
😂😂 I wish we had 36hrs a day
Let's just make it 40.
More is better😂
This was our first week of "cooldown" after our most recent product development cycle.
I learned a lot this week from how folks are reacting to our processes and what needs to change. That was definitely a win.
when you say folks do you mean users or staff or other stakeholders? curious
I was assigned a ticket that initially considered 4-5 complex solutions with lots of potential changes but after discussing with another dev and boss narrowed it down to a one line change that genuinely seems to meet all the needs. Its passed QA.
That sounds like it would make a fantastic blog post :)
We found out our second little one is going to be a little girl! We have a boy who is a brute, but can't wait to be dad to a little girl ✨
Also, launched our new developer education platform; learn.vonage.com/ Super excited about the direction our team is taking!
Congrats on extending your family!! I wish you the best of luck, a ton of quality sleep and lots of fun! :)
Thanks Raphael! :)
Just completed the draft for this: barnesandnoble.com/w/dead-simple-p...
I conducted an interview, being the kind of interviewer I wish I would have. Trying to make hiring a little less painful for all involved a little at a time.
Transparency, no whiteboards (at least for associates... I might lose that fight for seniors.), keeping it casual to not play into the power dynamic. Just us chatting to figure out if we want to work together.
Great job. If I've learned anything from interviews, it's that the candidate learns far more about me/company culture (none of it good), than I will about them, by creating an on-the-spot, high pressure, watched/timed environment. Conversely, I've learned that it's far easier to detect BS when the atmosphere is relaxed.
The hiring manager is a tad miffed I didn't do the high-pressure whiteboard interview... this was for an associate role. Either, he doesn't know the code yet, as we know from his resume and the chat I had with him, or he's a hidden code savant and looking at a little login function and asking him what it does is going to be patronizing. Most likely both, it'll be patronizing and useless as we know he hasn't coded professionally. It's better to just have a chat and figure out what he wants to learn and know and what he's researched on his own. I can teach him the code later.
The high pressure, looking over your shoulder approach (not referring to pairing, that's a whole 'nother discussion) has no basis in the reality of a developer job at any level (and if it is a reality in your job, RUN). Any senior dev who thinks this is an effective interview method should know better.
Published my first and second open-source projects.
I've got two more projects I've been hacking at, but they're not quite ready.
I presented two talks at the Python Universe WEB Edition Global Summit (python.geekle.us)
What did you talk about?
"Lessons from my DevOps journey with Python"
"Getting your Python dev env ready with Vagrant"
Those were the talks I presented
What was your most valuable lesson learnt?
Understanding how some technologies work and when to use them and as I didn't find enough documentation in some cases, documenting everything I learned was my way to share that knowledge with the community. I wrote some blog posts about it here
That's interesting. Did you listen to DevDiscuss last week? You sound like the architect 👍
I finally completed this huge PR: github.com/matteobruni/tsparticles...
Even there’s a lot to work to do, at least it was so satisfying.
That PR enabled particles split (and others features) for tsParticles. So fun to work on that.

You'll find the instructions below, with all the links you need, and don't be scared by TypeScript, it's just the source language.
If you are still interested some lines below there are some instructions for migrating from…
Finally Submit my project that was a face filter rest API.
learned a lot of things while creating RestAPI and Image Handling.
Here is the URL for API:- opencv-api.herokuapp.com/
It's in alpha stage yet.
Published my first isolated & reusable react component on Bit.dev platform.. which anyone can import and use in their React apps.
I built my own calendar component for my app with transition between months
Do we see an article coming?
thats a good idea, I'll prepare one soon :)
Fixing a bug that i had been tracking for a few days. It's always that piece of code, which you first assume that it won't have any effect on your code 🙄 😅
