More a win for the past few weeks, but finally started blogging at my site thebouv.com and doing some cross-posting on LinkedIn and here on Dev.to.

20+ years in this industry; figured I can do some writing now. :D

Weird. I just checked, and I don't have any options near save changes. Just the save changes button itself.

Just near to save changes or Right to save changes there is small round icon. Click that you should see the options. :)

I won the raffle for a "leftover" vaccine. It reduces the chance of me dying this year by 40%.

I got vaccinated

Installed Java 8 + Android SDK + Android Emulator only using Terminal and without installing Android Studio. That was a ride! The best: most of the commands were already researched by one of our assistants so it's not even my win but even with his shellscripts in place this still was a full-day hackathon to get it all installed correctly on my system πŸ™ˆ

Surviving the week

This week I had:

  • Few regular coding tasks
  • Writing office planning document
  • College tasks

But actually also I have to:

  • Teach React-Native online for high school students on saturday
  • And optionally i can also record more content for my Youtube Channel for my personal branding on the weekend as this stuff is enjoyable to me

I wish i have more power to through this with awesome energy and not procrastinating, but I think what I have done in this week is a win, so that's it : D

Created a free Kubernetes Hands-On Self-Paced Course in which you'll create a local Kubernetes development environment on macOS or Windows and WSL2, including HTTPS/TLS and OAuth2/OIDC authentication.

Was tough, but totally worth it

For this week,

  • I talked to one of my friend and got a freelance application which might be built with Flutter for frontend and rest api for backend.
  • I decided to code with NestJs (A progressive Node.js framework) for backend.
  • Normally, I wrote api with laravel, this time I took risk for NestJs.
  • Since Tuesday, I learned about NestJs.
  • Friday, I posted article for my dev.to and YouTube.
  • This week, my office is also closed for national holidays so I got time to relax too.

Whatever, I enjoyed this week.
What about you?
What are you learning currently? let me know some <3

My win this week was debugging my flutter app to work on android! It has been working on iOS perfectly since I started writing it, but it just would not launch on android. I finally found out what I was doing wrong, and it finally launches without issue! Those "aha" moments are the best!

Had a little win today. Found a bug where I was converting string to int as base 16 when it should have been base 10.

It was difficult to catch because, as is often the case for me, the conversion from sensor signal to float is quite confusing. I'm gonna have to update the unit tests!
