I was, but not exclusively. My fiancΓ© and I plan on moving within the next year and I didn’t want to have to search for another job a few months from now haha. Remote just made more sense for my current situation.

My win this week was 2️⃣ happy clients. I improved the reach of a brand through an advert by 300% +. And delivered an MLP (minimum loveable product).

But it was in their tone that I could hear the satisfaction 🀸.

I got a new url domain kedro.dev. Its mostly for some side projects that I have subdomained on it, but there is now at least a landing page for the root url.

I started learning MDX, and am going to try to build it with MDX since it is greenfield.

We're getting close to finishing the Preact upgrade for DEV. The Preact upgrade itself was simple, but the testing tools we use are not compatible with Preact 10.x. We've moved to preact-testing-library, the cousin of react-testing-library which is the recommended testing tool for React alongside jest.

We're almost finished migrating all the tests. So close! Hopefully early next week we'll get this merged and then we can start using new React features in Preact like fragments, hooks, context etc.

My win this week was a very successful refactor across three different language specific SDKs! We can all agree to love lightweight libraries :D

A repeat of a win I had a few weeks ago. A couple friends and I tore down another side of my fence and replaced it. 134ft this time. I had to do most of the demo work myself. The fence leans a little bit, but we had to use the existing holes which were anything but straight. We're both fortunate and unfortunate to have the fiber optic cable box for our neighborhood in our backyard. It's unfortunate because the wires are buried parallel to our fence line on three sides. It was also over 100F the whole weekend... Definitely waiting to replace the next side until a colder season.
