Looking back on your week — what was something you're proud of?

All wins count — big or small 🎉

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!

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 😉! Even if you had one more day 🙃.

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 ?

Not sure if a win, but I did report various bugs on Forem's repo! That was quite the experience for me😅

Shout out to the Forem team for their continued efforts! Happy Friday y'all! 💖

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 now🎉

  • 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'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 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...

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! 🥳

Hello everyone.
I created a Github action using Typescript that allows you to automatically populate your learned section in your Github readme with data pulled from a remote notion database. Would appreciate it if you could take your time to check it out and drop any sort of feedback. Thank you.

I caught up with 5 of my friends and colleagues, who were super close to me for so many years of my past life, but had fallen out of touch as we grew apart. 😅😄
I did "nothing" today, with my friends, and it felt good.

We bitched a lot about Corona Virus!! It's truly a shitty disease stay safe 😷

I would have to say that this week's win was definitely gaining a stronger grasp on functions in Python.
