Hi Aishika, This is really a win. I think we all technocrats have this anxiety issue. I am also facing this issue of anxiety these days and it takes a toll on my sleep patterns too. Me too working on it like following:

  • Stick to day working hours,
  • Evening time play with my duo Kidz 30-45 mins,
  • Must have 2hrs difference between dinner & bedtime
  • Breathing exercises 5-10 mins before sleeping (Elom Vilom)
  • Morning time go for 30mins cycling or running (if sleep was good last night :) )

More important "LET IT GO, LET IT GO.......mmmm...." :)

I built and launched my personal blog (finally πŸ₯³). It's built with Gatsby, and I'm quite happy with the result and the journey too considering I started from the basic starter template.

I also wrote a quick tutorial post on it which I reposted here. It happens to be my first post on dev.to even though I've been a member here since 2018 😁.

Not a pretty huge thing but converted my self hosted blog(cybercafe.dev) to a fully functioning PWA. Also written an article about it. If anybody who is running a Ghost JS instance and interested, can check out the steps here. It helped me understand service workers, browser cache api and webmanifest.

I released an initial 0.1.0 version of my self hosted URL shortener on GitHub! It's the biggest open source project I've made so far and I've learnt SO much by trying to use stacks I'm not as comfortable with, like Go, Sapper, and Docker! :D

Wrote my first Psalm plugin (for Zend Framework 1).

There's not much to it (I just generated a stub of all the functions and classes that Zend 1 provides, then deleted all the non-Zend stuff it generated, and it was pretty much done), but once it was in place on the legacy project I maintained it reduced the time for Psalm to run from around 15 minutes to 90 seconds. That means I can run it more often, and get faster feedback in my editor.

I’ve been working on a partnership between New Relic and Confluent. We’re partnering to build an open source Kafka Connect plug-in for New Relic so devs can make observability data pipelines to New Relic through Kafka (which will be available on the Confluent Hub as well). This week we hit some friction, and I managed to spin up a small team of sales-side engineers to finish out the build.

This is the first PM-type work I’ve done in years, and I didn’t realize that I missed it. It’s good to be back doing technical things again, even if it’s only for a week or two.
