Huge congrats, Andrew! Exciting time that's also tiring I'm sure. Enjoy the weekend :)

I finally published my own js library, with one way binding and components, and wrote a semi successful post on it! :)

I put together enough blog ideas for the next 20 years (yup, over 1000 blog post ideas!).

Oh and obviously I was honoured to get a top 7 post awarded by the DEV team, so thank you for that!

That's a lot! Would be nice if you wrote a post about that

Thanks, I now have 1001 posts 😜

I am hoping to release a series all around blogging and putting systems in place to write consistently (as I am so random at the moment!).

I may open the series with that if you would find it useful?!

That would be awesome, even I am so messy!

Using the BroadcastChannel api to link actions of two open windows/tabs of an interface to allow uses to view time differentiated versions of the same data set.

  • DevExtreme dxDataGrid
  • Scroll here, it scrolls there
  • Filter/Sort here, matches over there
  • Change hierarchy here, same action over there
  • Paging... you get the idea.

Kudos to my wife for suggesting the idea!

I'm very happy I finally released the modern clean architecture project. It aims to significantly reduce the effort to build a clean architecture in a Spring Boot environment.

Thanks for asking. This week I was able to update 24 websites from Drupal 8 to Drupal 9 in our staging environment's multisite system. It involved upgrading one codebase and 24 databases.

Finding a book for free, which is "Begin to Code with Python" along with other useful books in the "free bin" section after being unable to find anything in the computer section at a book store. Hahaha, also..

Having a simple program work, even though it created many more things to investigate and expand upon. So, yay for progress!

Deployed a Spring Boot app to our companys private Cloud Foundry instance for the first time. Added a MySQL DB and Spring Boot magically switched to it from the in-memory H2 DB. Hibernate created the database tables. Magic! Even managed to connect to the MySQL DB instance with DBeaver (DB Tool).

Started taking notes I had stored up in Obsidian and writing daily blog posts from them. Currently working through my MongoDB knowledge base. Here is the summary post that will link to all the other posts

The posts will all be fairly short and focused on accomplishing one task. The notes are loosely based on this style of note taking.

One win for me is that I am submitting my first paper to an academic journal soon! Very excited I hope it gets approved!
