Not a personal win, but the Forem team is starting to close the loop on some huge things.

  • Core Forem open source hosting instructions are moving into the final stage of testing before a wider release (long time coming)
  • The Forem iOS app literally just went live. We'll have a proper announcement early next week, but consider this an early heads up for those reading this. πŸ˜„
    • The Forem app is like a browser for the whole ecosystem, so once you start your own Forem anyone who wants to browse DEV on their device can also swipe to your Forem.

Btw for anyone curious, Android will follow in the near future.

We prioritized iOS because Android has a better mobile web experience. The squeaky wheel gets the grease. iOS technology and user expectations really center around native apps.

And again, much more info coming next week. Can't wait to share all about our approach and what this means for the future.

I started a JavaScript Twitch stream!

As some know, I co-host the DEV Twitch stream, and I'm also learning Rust on Tuesdays, but now there is some JavaScript goodness too.

In the inaugural stream, we covered:

  • purpose of the stream
  • some katas from jskatas.org
  • object and array spread

Also, how was JavaScriptHours.com not taken!?

I managed to get positions 1,2 and 3 for the #a11y tag for the month here on dev.to - I am a competitive so and so, it made me more happy than it should really 🀣

InHuOfficial has articles in positions 1,2 and 3 of the monthly rankings for the #a11y tag (accessibility tag)

The worrying thing is that they are all angry rants - people are going to start thinking I am a monster! 🀣

It was a great week TBH.

  • I got a good opportunity as an author from a well known company mainly because they liked my DEV articles.
  • My recent article received quite a lot of attention.
  • Quincy Larson called me a legend in the daily.dev live session at around 47:00:00 minutes, mainly for my contribution to the freeCodeCamp news.
  • One of my old clients came back after one year of silence, willing to revive an old dead project.

That's pretty much it 😊

  • Pushed a really big update to a large legacy project to production. In the process, eliminated a large number of N+1 queries on the home page, removed a lot of messy legacy code, and significantly improved the type coverage and code style, thanks to Psalm and PHP Codesniffer

Biggest win is -- I wrote my first ever DEV.to article.

I don't write much (read not at all or may be 1-2 blog post?) and someone suggested to start writing the story about the project I build recently and today (Sunday) was perfect for that 😎

I always wanted to build a personal site. Being a noob, i initially thought i must learn HTML and CSS completely. But later i found that we can build a static site using Github and Jekyll.
Having knowledge of markdown i started building the website two weeks ago. I'm not gonna say i have completely built the site, but i have made certain progress of which i'm proud of.
You can see the site here.

I always wanted to build a personal site where I could post my project updates, my achievements and all. Being a noob in web development I initially thought I have to learn HTML and CSS completely to build the website, but thanks to GitHub they help us to host personal website for free with GitHub pages and GitHub Flavoured markdown.
Having knowledge of markdown, I started building it two weeks ago using GitHub pages and Jekyll.
I finally built it this week (right now it's kind of static site) and will add new features to the website in coming days.
You can check the website here.
