What was your win this week?

Happy Friday!

Looking back on your week โ€” what was something you're proud of?

All wins count โ€” big or small ๐ŸŽ‰

Examples of 'wins' include:

  • Starting a new project
  • Landing a new job
  • Enjoying the sun/snow/rain (I'm from Portland, Oregon; enjoying the rain is actually something we do here ๐Ÿ˜†) ... or whatever else might spark joy โค๏ธ

Celebrate those wins!

Not a cat
Sounds just like something a cat pretending to be a lawyer would say... ๐Ÿค”

I just landed a job as a full-stack developer after a year of learning and practicing.
I have my second child due soon so the timing couldn't be any better! I get to work remote doing what I love, living the dream.

Please point me to resources you referred to. I want to switch from sales to development. I have degree in commerce.

The Odin Project - basically a free path into full stack development. I would recommend trying to spend 2 hours everyday, build as many projects as possible, and constantly be learning (you shouldn't have a choice anyway).

Josi. Thank you so much. I will reach out to you if I have any doubts. By the way what web technologies have you mastered.

I wouldn't say that I have mastered any as I have only been working a year and I haven't had a day where I don't learn something new. But, I can build something pretty well with React, Node, WordPress, and php.
This is the result of working for at least 2 hours every single day after deciding to start.

I wanted to do it since I was 10 years old, so it's a MASSIVE win for me this week:

I've released my first book!

I'm so proud and grateful, I had a lot of support from everywhere and everybody seems to like it. That's crazy! I thought three people would be interested by that... and then ask for a refund ๐Ÿคฃ

Published my ebook titled 100 Page Python Intro. There are many books for complete newbies to programming, but very few for those already familiar with basics and looking for a quick guide. So I wrote one and learned a lot in the process.

What's really exciting about this is that it's a side project that I've actually finished!
