Some wins :)

  • Learned some more about Gatsby and Gatsby cloud. Looking forward to taking a full course on these services and doing a project using them!

  • My portfolio post got a React badge and lovely feedback from the DEV community. Putting my work "out there" was kind of scary, but everyone is really kind and constructive in their feedback. Can't wait to start implementing some of the advice/suggestion shared on it.

My partner and I started going for a walk every morning before work, from 10-30 minutes depending on the weather.

Also over the weekend we successfully adjusted our sleep cycle for the daylight savings time change, so started the week off well.

After 3+ months between a relocation and having to work overtime, I finally decided to focus on the things I love (at least for a little while):

  • Made time to record another tutorial for my Docker Development Tips&Tricks series on YouTube (this the video) 🎬
  • Started a new test project to learn how to create microservices in Golang 😎

Thank you @graciegregory and @devteam for reminding all of us to look at the good things that happened 🙂 it's so easy to get lost in the bad days..

I was able to turn a simple code review consulting into being hired for a bigger project to lead a team of developers for a new project for a big client.

Told my current job that I'm moving to Denver at the end of April. I was super nervous about it and how my boss would react, but they're going to let me keep doing whatever I can for them from Denver! I didn't necessarily need this to happen to make the move possible, but it's definitely going to make it easier.

It just hit me but I really am diving into this whole freelance thing head first, I'm nervous but excited!

We've finally shipped new dashboard for our SaaS. The challenge was to do it in few steps:

  1. deploy new dashboard only for admins to test internally
  2. allow current users to switch to new dashboard when the want
  3. all new users will force to use new dashboard
  4. all users will be forced to use new dashboard

We are now in step 3.

Landed my first full-time job this week as well as enrolled in a Bachelors's degree. Late in age compared to my friends but I guess that's normal when you change career paths. Pretty excited about how things are going well this year.

Deliver my first freelance project (over-delivered actually)! A Gatsby site with Netlify CMS integration. I was extremely happy to discover the Lighthouse easter egg of fireworks after hitting 4x100% :D

I did almost zero coding and spent a lovely week with my GF, getting out of bed as little as humanly possible. Highly recommend. 10/10 would do again.
