Took part in a hackathon after a long time. Got back into intense web development. Learning so much so quickly. Built an amazing team, of hardworking hackers.

I'm not sure if we'll win this, but I'm sure I'll leave this hackathon with a huge prize - everything I learnt!

For the first time in 3 months (12 weeks) I published an article on my Security news weekly round-up. Yeah, it meant a lot to me because I barely have free time.

Here you go:

I wrote a post that has beaten my personal record of views and reactions. No that of a surprise, because it's a polemic topic, but, wow, it literally has de double of views that my previous record breaking post.

Looking back on this past week, I'm super proud of myself for what I'm able to achieve.

Honestly, I'm excited that I completed a course on Docker this week and would talk more about my learning experience in the next series of "My Technical Writing Journal"

Most of the terms like containers, Docker image, Docker compose, etc. were new to me.

Tech world with Nana and IBM makes it easier to understand Docker and its terminologies.

I feel pumped for next week's ride.

I was online at 11:00 at night last night, and I saw someone post in our DevOps Slack channel that their production deployment pipeline was failing for something that had to go out TONIGHT. It was their first time trying to deploy it to production. I quickly diagnosed the issue and fixed it by configuring a protected tag in GitLab CI settings (their production deployment pipeline wasn't able to access protected environment variables otherwise). Only took about 10 minutes, but it saved the day for them. I do love those easy wins. I am not on our DevOps team but help out where I can.

Improved my dev environment and it helped reduce compilation time. I also started to learn about gmock 😊

Wrote, deployed, and watched a new service start to do exactly what we needed. Greenfield is always nice.

I built a CLI application that shows an animated ASCII train. It was a nice way to learn some C#/.NET, but other than that it’s completely useless!
