I made this zucchini pizza from scratch which my 2-year-old actually ate.


Now, that is a real win. Having a toddler eating the veggies πŸ˜‚


@Pachi, it's not hard when you give it to him from early years 🀘

Idk, I have been a nanny for years, and some kids just decided around 2/3 that they hate everything they used to love πŸ˜’πŸ˜‚

@Pachi, That's sad. I hope they return to valuable food :)


That. Looks. Incredible.

+1 for the home made pizza, so easy isn't it.


Completed CS50: Introduction to Computer Science!


Congrats. I started a while ago but I keep putting bit aside x.x


Thanks! Ah maybe try to make daily or weekly goals related to the course if it's important for you to complete it. =)


Thanks! Also, awesome! =) Enjoy it, it's the best!


I wrote a new Dev post that's was incredibly successful. I'm new to the platform, and my past record was around 200 views. My new one has almost 2400 and 160 reactions. Needless to say, huge confidence boost! dev.to/cjtaylor1990/how-to-maximiz...


After ten months of being in an Immersive Software Engineering Program, my team and I presented our final senior thesis project to complete our training in becoming Full-stack Software Developers!


I put a big redesign update to my website Up Your A11y live πŸ˜…

To be honest there's still lots more I need to do to spruce it up and get everything as I want but I'm so happy with the improvement over the old UI.

I was very lucky to persuade illustrator Matt Peet to turn his hand to web design and collaborate on it with me πŸ™Œ


I got my newest blog shared by DEV's Twitter account! That was a nice surprise to wake up to.


Finally publishing an article that I've been dreading writing for the last few months, because I wasn't sure how it would turn out. I ended up really enjoying finishing it!


It's a great post @aschmelyun - congratulations on finishing it!


I wrote my second post! It was very exciting to work on it. This is the link in case someone is interested. Thanks!



Oooh, I really like your images!

Completed a project to audit log Apple workstations that was due in November. I wasn't thrown into the loop on it until about January so required a lot of catching up.

Apple does not play nice with 3rd parties reading OS logs. After several failed attempts and Weeks of feeling lost in the Splunk, Apple, and other documentation sauce .... I got a SSL cert generated (never did this before) as a necessary step. Pulled in some very helpful devs who make their living from logging MacOS. The monkey is off my back (aka the higher ups) and I have a greater understanding of how this all works.

TLDR: I'm still a Linux / Windows guy πŸ˜› enjoy the weekend everyone.

Going on a much needed vacation to Europe in March. First time out of the States! If anyone has any friends in London/Spain, I'm all for making friends πŸ€—


I published my first NPM package EVER this week πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»πŸš€πŸ€™πŸ’ƒ

It's tiny and not useful for anyone outside of my company but I learned a lot through the process and it felt very cool to npm install my own package.


Nailed an onsite interview and got invited to do a take-home project as the next step of the interview process!
AND got invited for an onsite interview with another company :)


I listened to a TED Talk and it filled me with so much positivity! That was the best thing happened to me this week.

  • Wrote my first DEV article and reached 1k views!
  • Contributed to an open source project to aggregate global news and track the spread of 2019-nCoV. See our project here: coronatracker.com

Productive week! Lovin' it.


First time got bill from Netlify. But we want to stay at 0 USD application cost, even with 170 registered users and ~50 daily active ones 😎 . So optimized the build process a bit. It was simple, just was unaware of Netlify build hook feature. Thanks @ron4ex for the idea.

I got chance to set up a registration process for an event organized by BAPS (a spiritual organization). So far it is simple google form but will be automating few areas as >10k registrations are expected.

Saturday is also started exciting. We set up a boilerplate for new side project(hope I will announce soon) to our monorepo. Planning to explore NextJs as new tech with this project.


I wrote my first post ever on dev.to. Such a great moment writing it and doing researches about the subject
That may become an addiction :D


I started playing around with pixi.js for a small game I want to do (more a joke between friends but a valid excuse to try and learn something).

Also I'm done with my antibiotics (damm you tonsilits), so I can go back to not being stuck home...

And I managed to gather the guts to respond to something like this jn such a public square.


I moved my domain's DNS from Cloudflare after realizing that they can't register.dev domains or handle custom email forward/alias/proxy. I went back to Google who owns the .dev and emails work flawlessly to and from my Gmail using the custom domain.

Unfortunately I also found breakage in travis-ci.org this week that seems to be on their end and keeps me from being able to make any changes on my site.


Built a workbench and learned about major and minor scales.


Completed my first CI/CD deployment for infrastructure as code using Pulumi.

Pushed an entire VPC, and ECS cluster to AWS from an Azure Dev OPS pipeline.

Can highly recommend Pulumi for anyone looking to get started in Infrastructure as code, it's incredible.


After 2 months in my new job (and first after finishing University), this week I wrote my first RFC for some new features we are gonna add to our core business πŸ˜ƒ

Of course, still gotta get those approvals and make changes if requested, which I know they are gonna make, but hey, it was an awesome week.


I start my first job as a full-stack developer today at Travelers!


Started learning Reactjs Hooks and completed this practice project


Started building a neural network from scratch; and started learning Signals and Systems from Oppenheim's book.


My conference submission got accepted. I'm going to talk about burnout and resilience at DrupalCamp London!


I also, finally publish my site
And started writing blogs on that.
Start working on a new project.
Also, open freelancing work



Had a Futsal Tournament and best part, we won the tournament. :)


I had a really good and relaxing weekend


Finally, rate-limiter-flexible v2 is released! Redis runs Lua script for atomic increments now.


At last i started a little Side Project using Socket.io πŸŽ‰


Pushed my first code change on my new project - the Norwegian DMV πŸ˜„


I have learned the builder pattern, instead of a bunch of setters this pattern does it functional, clean and human. This is big for me, I love algos and quality 🀩


Returned to a week on my home town and seen my friends and folks!


I'm currently working on a new project and I'm starting my Internship at VMware very soon, in which I'm very excited to begin! :D


I got my certificate of completion this week for the Front End Web Development course that I finished last week. 3 months of 18 hours days, but I did it.


I finished Week 2 of CS50 - Introduction to Computer Science!


Found a new way to play artificial harmonics with a pick on guitar (one that works for both up- and down- strokes) 🍾


Finally fixed a Colorbox issue while migrating a Drupal 7 site to Drupal 8. I'm so done with Drupal..


Completed my first python project with an awesome presentation of it all today and got into working with react :) busy week that was.
