My editor told me I was an amazing technical writer especially for a non-native speaker.

That really made my day.

At the beginning of the week I finished my 100 days of CSS art project! I can't believe 100 days have passed already! Plus, today I was able to optimise an animation at work using something I learned during the project 😁

If anyone fancies reading about my CSS art journey I wrote a little bit here

This week i was working on the oldest project we have and I did a deploy to production this morning. We all survived and that old big piece of software didn't died so it's a win for the team 😂

I haven't been able to blog regularly with other work commitments. I still managed to stay up late yesterday and push one article out today. I would consider that as a win. Here's me wishing you all a great weekend!!

Finally re-launched - Almost completely rebuilt from the ground up with a new look, improved navigation, way better lighthouse score and new user accounts. For anyone curious, it's built using Jamstack with Hugo as an SSG, Algolia for search, Netlify Forms and Netlify Identity for user management.

A job I applied to got back to me within 24 hrs requesting a phone call with one of the engineers. 😄

I'm nervous but also pumped. 👊

📙 I made a lot of progress for my book, Building Your Mouseless Development Environment. The formatting for epub / PDF is 90% complete, I finished the outline, and I wrote the first drafts for the first chapters.

I was approached by my country's digital technology department that is involved in accessibility initiatives in my country. To talk about the project DUST (Differently-Abled Upskill Training) which I'm teaching differently able individuals to learn to build websites using a low code platform over 3 months.

I gave 2 people (who were almost like strangers to me) some career advice!

I covered:

  • The software industry.
  • How to study efficiently.
  • About college placement cells.
  • Targeting big companies.

And most importantly, how to make time for a side hustle!

And I felt like...

I completed my first Github workflow :) It copies some OpenAPI spec files from one repo to a central API documentation repo when a new release is created.

AND my first PR was merged into

Finally getting better at creating visuals for my posts (at least from my point of view), now time to work my writing skills 👷‍♂️

I finished part 9 of the tutorial I'm writing, which took me forever to write. Some things in the project I'm writing about changed considerably while I was writing the code for the tutorial, while other dependencies had some issues... it was hard to finish, and harder still to review it!

Managed to get GlusterFS replica created and mounted on 3 node servers, and then automatically mounted on new servers as part of a terraform run. Being able to do that ourselves is going to save my company some serious money when we deploy our new application.

Means we don't need an external company involved in the building of a cloud in AWS, we can pick just about any cloud service now.

Received this amazing pull request to my app, and was able to guide the contributor to finally getting it merged. Not really my win per-se, but it sure felt like one :)

Git Concepts I Wish I Knew Years Ago

The most used technology by developers is not Javascript.

It's not Python or HTML.

It hardly even gets mentioned in interviews or listed as a pre-requisite for jobs.

I'm talking about Git and version control of course.

One does not simply learn git
