Getting through this week while still committing to my 100 days of code challenge.

  • finished reading Scrum and XP from the Trenches.
  • I finished the official Next.js tutorial.
  • created a temporary, prototype company banner.
  • almost blogged daily for a month now.
  • keeping my personal life intact.

Okay, looking back, it's pretty great!

Funny story, I read your JSON post while I was having my morning coffee (and it blew my mind), and then I ended up working on a project that afternoon where I had to use a custom replacer function with JSON stringify. Your post really helped make that go quicker, since I already had some background on how it worked.

So huge thanks for posting that :)

Also realizing all these comments were from 4 months ago and you were probably referring to a different post at the time…

The best thing that happened to me during this week would have to be that I was able to finish off a long pending project and the second thing would be that I was able to learn strapi. Omg it makes it so easy to setup a project. Loved it.

  • wrote 5 articles on DEV this week (25k+ views which is great)
  • wrote my first Twitter thread - an interesting writing experience nice to say the least.
  • nearly finished my full marketing plan so I can properly up my content game!

I'm working hard on my book:

It's far from being finished, but I get better managing the formatting, using LaTeX and pandoc. I try to create lua filters too, it's insanely powerful.

My win this week was getting potential feed improvements into a pull request on forem/forem. I learned quite a bit about the forem code-base, and hope that this change can help bring about better insight into why an article shows up in a person's feed. But this change is just one of many steps in wrangling with that feed.

This week:

  • I presented a 60-minute masterclass about "Careers in Technology", dedicated to people aged 13-18.

  • I got to know more about Amazon Web Services (still need to dive deeper into this though).

  • I had a chat on the phone with an ex-colleague of mine.

  • I had a chat with a software engineer based in Ghana via Zoom.

The next thing would be to publish a small article post on my blog. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—

Advocated for a job change within my company, so now I get to be the DevOps person :)

I haven't really been told the plan other than HR and the relevant managers approved it, but it sounds like I'll be 50/50 QA and DevOps this year and then roughly 34/33/33 dev/performance/Azure next year.

Our current 66/33 dev/devops guy is leaving to go be 100 devops, so I pretty much told the dev manager "yo, I could do that." It helped no devs actually wanted to do it.

Now to cram devops books until I sound like I know what I'm doing
