I was elected to the EuroPython Board of Directors! So, that's only sort of REALLY EXCITING!

Finish first draft of my ebook on Ruby one-liners and started editing. Hope to finish the changes and publish the book next week. Noted down some interesting changes, for example:

I shared my curated learning resources on a twitter thread for Python beginners tips - pleased to see it being received well.

Got some movement on my main project and its siblings: some stars, one more member in the team and a few PRs!

By the way, the team (to discuss a programming language development) is still recruiting!
So please let us know if you're interrested.

Are we making a language again? Maybe hit me up : ▷
Did work recently on an ML related language effort, and more recently this github.com/active-logic/howl

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "hit me up" (english is not my native language), so I'm inviting you in the team. Feel free to ignore it if I misunderstood. 😄

French maybe? "hit me up" probably means "let's talk about it?" as you perhaps mentioned you needed some kind of help?
Language-wise exp covers a little bit of Tree-Sitter and some Boost Spirit. Did hardwire a couple of parsers in Java and C# too.

French, yes. Reputedly not the best at foreign languages.
Thank you for the clarification on hit me up.
I'm mainly searching people to discuss Gwion's development. But, let's face it, the docs needs some technical writers (it does not seem to be a skill of mine 😄).

Hey I see. The first step here regardless (for me at least) would be installing and giving it a go esp. since domain specific

I'll post a tutorial tonight (tonight a +5:30GMT), showing how to build Gwion, which (hopefully) end with a web page outputting sound from gwion. It's a special Hacktoberfest one because the html/javascript part deserves improvement 😄.
I also provide a way to do just that by using mdr to automate the whole process here.

Hey Peter,

My win: I pre-announced that I'm launching a content strategy program for developer advocates. ☺️ I started working on it earlier in the summer but had to table it due to some other life things, and this week decided to reimagine it. I'm formally announcing it in October.

I also cross-posted my first article in seven weeks on DEV Community! Again I'd been balancing work, life and writing so I had to put things on the backburner for a while. Things will continue to be busy but I'm happy with these small successes.

Creating two React Apps, one with a Node/Express backend and the other with a Python/Flask backend that connect to a HarperDB database. Deploying them both to Netlify/Vercel. Also creating a new and improved Resume and transferring my domain from HostGator to Namecheap which should reduce my annual costs. And finally writing a post on "What I realised after learning Python, TypeScript and Kotlin" which got lots of recognition.

Closing an issue for a database migration from Heroku to AWS. It involved GraphQL + Web Sockets + Serverless + AWS. Very exciting 😺.

Just finished a frontend project for $200 in 10 days. I know it's very low but i am in my third year at college ( from mining engineering), so it actually means a lot to me. Thanks :)

I had a good week with a couple of wins:

  1. Made my first merge request to GitLab. Only my second ever attempt at contributing to open source. Makes me want to do more.
  2. Made great progress with Terraform and Ansible at work. Our new infrastructure (dev) environment is about 85% ready. That means or staging and live environments are about 80% ready.
