I finally started working to improve my mental healthy by seeking professional help. Not tech-related but still a big win for me. Let's fight the mental health stigma πŸ‘Š

Solved a really nasty bug with a combobox not scrolling the selected option. Took some time but the fix was simple.

Also finally created my own custom blog site with Remix.

Still only the first iteration. Lots of work to be done.

heya, been keeping an eye on remix but most people have been building larger scale systems with it - what was it like building a personal blog (not trying to downgrade your work but just wanted to know how it feels at a smaller scale) :)))) i’d love to discuss how you felt the process was as i’m super interested in this framework right now

Sure thing! It was really intuitive. Remix has offers a few pre-built tech stacks so it makes getting starting pretty easy: I used the indie stack as my baseline and made adjustments along the way.

As for the syntax and API of Remix itself. It felt really good. Colocating the data I'm looking for and the UI with React felt natural and makes it easier to refactor later on. Also felt good to use the MDN docs for a lot of the questions I had as the APIs are based on the normal web platform APIs.

I made a thread on twitter where I went through some of the process:

But, but if you want to get more into detail feel free to shoot me message.

I could hold myself not doing any coding learning this whole week and enjoying my family & our vacation instead ❀

Also, I won and got the badge of Deepgram x DEV Hackathon Engagement Challenge (Submission Comment)! πŸŽ‰πŸ˜„

Could I say double wins? 😎

Working on a big feature on a Zend 1 legacy project I maintain, where I've been using Psalm to help clean up the code. This week I got it to pass level 5! Now on to level 4...

We had a fun little get together with some neighbors on Cinco de Mayo! Drank some delicious margaritas.

I gave an online talk at Codementor Events. It went very well, I had a terrific time and, on top of that, I heard back from some of the participants who enjoyed the event as well.
P.S. I talked about how working as a programmer helped me write a book :)

I think I'm getting a hang of React JS.
I also started a project I left in Mid-March.
I got over 200 views on my post. It's pretty big for me because I had doubt before publishing it.πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ŠπŸ™ƒ Happy Weekend.
Cheers to more wins.

Made and also rewrote @poet_this bot on twitter. that's a pretty big deal and it also doubled in followers today!

Also, got a 50$ forem voucher for being the top7 authors of the week (Unfortunately I'll probably give it away because I can't afford the shipping costs)

but overall, i'm so burnt out

Hey Dhravya! Shipping is free if your subtotal is less than the voucher total! Hope you're able to pick up something you like from the Forem Shop!

Yes, I just realised. I don't exactly know why, but about 5 days ago when I was using the 12$ coupon I had, it asked for an additional 12$ for shipping

However, I'm pretty sure I'll be slapped with customs and what not... my dad warned me against it

Gave a talk in front of 70 people at a meet-up called Fail Night about a project our team did a few years back. The project didn't even remotely go as planned, hence the talk. People greatly enjoyed the talk and I received a lot of praise for it. I love the concept of the meet-up, as it wasn't about laughing at fails but about raising awareness and talk about learnings. The first talk of the night also gave an emphasis on the mental health aspect of large-scale failures, which I think is very important. I learned a ton that night and had a great time!

Not touching my PC for 3 days. Sometimes some time off from coding is very important for me.

I've learned how to write css properly through mistakes and thinking of better ways to improve. I have been excessively using classes, instead used more meaningful html elements and structured html better. It will also help when making websites responsive.
