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 🥳). 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 discovered the Building a Second Brain concept (basically it's a way to keep track of information that matters to you in one single app) a couple months back and have been gradually integrating it into my life. Last week feels like the first week that it's finally come together. As in, I have my reading/highlighting flow settled, am actively progressively summarising (for example, when you first highlight a passage from a book it is simply done as a moment of intrigue so you go back to your highlights and find the core piece of information that made you highlight it in the first place - a means to consolidate information), and my sense of organisation in Evernote has much improved.

Actually a culmination of the last few weeks, but I was too busy to comment, so I'll combine them:

  • Two weeks ago: Called out some crappy sales "influencer"/"growth hacker"/"algorithm breaker" on LinkedIn for post advocating the awful strategy of cold calling people on FREAKING FACETIME, then repeatedly commenting on his own post to get more views (about how many views he was getting). Another commenter liked my comment and said, "Nice to see someone keeping it real on LinkedIn for a change." Connected with said commenter, who founded his own startup.
  • Last week: Reached out to said commenter/startup founder as he was seeking advisors. Gave him some advice, and he asked me to be an advisor.
  • This week: Continuing the discussion, heavy on the technical side, we're in talks for me to become CTO.

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.
