3 weeks into a new job, I pushed code to production. It was pretty exciting!

Well, I mostly finished the documentation and release of an application:

This program started back in 2014 as a script for TextBar for my notes. Then it moved to NW.js and Vue.js and then to Mint. Now it is a Wails application using Svelte for the frontend. Much better now and much faster. The backend server is bundled together with it and works great (at least for me). I’m waiting for others to give feedback.

I have been doing faculty/student undergrad research this summer and, we got really promising results to add to our paper this week! With our new discovery, there is a high chance I will be able to add another published paper to my collection!!!

For some more background information, our project involved minecraft and evolving flying machines in Minecraft using quality diversity!

Well, I find a new JavaScript framework – TezJS, ensuring front-end developers reduce code complexity and deliver the highest website speed out of the box. And honestly, its features and functionalities really surprised me.
It promises to deliver 98+ Core Web Vitals without compromising UX.

My win for this week was to begin understanding the Jest library for React testing after completing the Redux course on Codecademy. It was a win not only because of completing the course, but because it gave me a clear sense of direction in terms of building Full Stack Applications. After learning to manage state of an application with Redux the next step is learning how it's different from Context API. Following this, query languages that will allow me to pull data from outside of the app for users seems to be the logical next step.

However, besides "best practices" for writing the code itself I am not coming across cybersecurity concepts as often as I would like. Is there any recommendations regarding understanding implementing cybersecurity for a full stack app? i.e API hardening)

My win of the week was making a Tic tac toe game, successfully learning how to manipulate the DOM from JavaScript, and being able to find a learning method that allows me to keep everything held together and apply it easily with memorizing everything.

Still learning, but now it's time to move to Third party packages vs making your own custom code for my first portfolio website. I'm not sure if I should wait with HTML CSS and JavaScript, or use a framework like VueJS (might be overkill 🀣).
