What was your win this week?

Hey there!

Looking back on your week β€” what was something you're proud of?

All wins count β€” big or small πŸŽ‰

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Fixing a tricky bug
  • Finding a new podcast* ... or whatever else might spark joy ❀️

*May I humbly/biasedly recommend DevNews?

Happy Friday!

Finally I have time to participate!

  • 2. I wrote my first paid article!
  • 3. I discovered that React can be really fun

PS: I also followed DevNews, if that count as a win

  • Started playing with Tower at work. (Pretty helpful Git GUI)

  • For the first time I had a post go over 1k reactions 😬

  • I finished building a desk for my wife. To bad there is no cmd + z with hammers and nails. πŸ˜‚

For the second win, I told you the competition was going to be rough when you had 30/50 likes. But remember I'm behind you πŸ˜‰! Even if you had one more day πŸ™ƒ.

I don't think you can consider it as a project but I am trying to compress everything that I learn in C++ using classes and objects , so one class for mathematical related programs another for patterns , etc . I've officially crossed 1000 lines of code . So yay me I guess .

How about you , what was your win this week ?

I'll be taking some time off starting Monday, and it's been great to know how capable our team is that I can do so with such confidence. Definitely a win.

  • I overcame my downwards spiral that was bugging me for the last two weeks.
  • I made my first react app although it was nothing special but still it was from the scratch like literally.
  • My100DaysOfCode is still on, maybe I'll post an article about that before the week gets over. so win-win :))
  • And I made an app using flux.

I finally launched the prototype of a news site that I've been messing around with for months. It's been about fifteen years since my last launch (I needed to go back to day jobs), so it definitely feels good to have something new running.

Now to learn the infrastructure of releasing mobile apps...

This week started from the bottom but then went up pretty fast.

The senior developer Who was both training me and giving gigs decided not to work together anymore due to his financial status.

However during the week, I was able to find a new web development project and secured another mobile app project with an old customer!

Besides, I kept writing blog post for 3 weeks by nowπŸŽ‰

I personally had my personal breakthrough with selenium and mimicking user behavior in one of our own web applications.
Seeing all of the interactions work as intended while only watching was really awesome! πŸ₯³
