My new win this week is DIVING BACK INTO CODING! Hahaha
2020 has been a challenging year and It was the year I actually started coding, but had to stop due to personal problems. Now I'm back at it and really excited! Especially because now I found communities to interact with and platforms to share my code ideas, improve and contribute!

I had my first zoom meeting, to possibly prepare a future DEV podcast 🍾 Huge win overall: that's the first time I'm asked to talk about my work.

I also improved this project:

  • added final and abstract, for both classes and functions.
  • added #require to improve how plugins are handled.

I should merge this during weekend, there's a tiny thing in arguments handling I can/want to improve.

Less important, but also sparks joy: I made it to the 7th place in the only online game I play 😄

I presented a demo to an audience of ~60 people, this was improvised, as I was chosen to give the presentation 5 mins. before the meeting. It was cool given that the main language of the team is English, and I am not a native-english speaker, so it felt proud of how I did in the presentation.

Released a font loader plugin for Gatsby that got almost 500 downloads! Someone even submitted a bug report. Really happy about it!

I learnt how to use scoped component slots in Vue.js in order to control the rendering of the list items in the child component from the parent component. I even went a bit further and managed to do this recursively from any parent level up! I need to write a blog post about this :XD

I improved the tooling behind Daily C++ Interview, now it's much easier to add new questions.

Last week I said that we were working on something special for COVID safe-ing our trick or treating experience...

Well, I'm really quite happy with how it turned out and am still flying high on that whole experience.

And at this moment, I'm generally optimistic about the way the US election is going. 🤞

Lots of things!

  • Finished some commits to the wireguard-android repository that I had been putting off for a couple months now.
  • Started work on porting my Android app for to Kotlin Multiplatform Mobile
  • Thanks to new contracts signed for the product I work on, my company was able to get rid of the salary adjustments for Corona, resulting in a 35% raise for me.
  • Started looking for a new job, because the 35% raise came with a 6 day work week that I can't do without burning out :D
