working from home (27 Part Series)
Usual exhaustion still exists. My theory is that as we are working now in our third week and even worked last weekend partially, my wife and I need time to rest. So this weekend will be completely non-work, even non-dev related.
I've tried ordering some N-95 (KN-95) masks online and it was a tricky task. I wouldn't pay 8-10€ for one mask because it is ridiculous. I searched for an hour on Wish and Alibaba Express Apps. My general rule:
- Only buy from Shops / Sellers with at least 1000+ reviews
- Avg. Review should be above 4/5 stars.
- Check carefully the pictures and description.
There is a difference between N-95, Ffp2 and KN-95 masks. All in all they are more or less similiar and honestly, I'm searching more as a backup strategy if German moves towards mandatory masks.
I've ordered from one seller on Wish (with via Express) and one Alibaba order.
What I don't like about Wish:
- When I buy 2 pcs of anything on Wish, they multiple Shipping costs x2, e.g. 2 KN-95 masks -> 2x shipping costs.
- The difference between normal and express was not much when considering new customer coupons I got. Yet in general, 12€ is huge....
All in all, It looks like I got lucky bc I got two pkg with 5 KN-95 masks completely sealed and nicely packaged.
Nothing special. We had our weekly Muslim Community Group watercooler hangout, which end up giving tips to one of our core members as he is engaged 🎉
I'm now focusing on a Technical Debt Task again as our AB-Test is more or less done. It looks like some last effort on the backend is needed.
On of our Fashion Store API's is deprecated and it looks like on of our tools is using it still.
Sadly, the JSON response also changed so I have to setup our Scala Monolith locally and see how I can test this scenario. Will be a tricky task.
Using Feature Flags seems to be the best decoupled way to switch our Chrome Extension API Calls from one to the other.
Because our Backend is acting as a Proxy for this call and we need to deploy a new version of it too (new endpoint, new JSON response).
