I started my Youtube channel, made a few posts on Dev.to and lost another pound of weight. I'm getting closer and closer to my goal weight and healthier life.

Hi Gwyneth, I just found your Happy Friday and eh I say that to peeps hoping that I haven't bummed them out as they might have to work the weekend. ;o)
I subbed your youtube channel and wanted to say if you include lots of search terms and hashtags like #condenewbie #womenwhocode #100daysofcode etc that will help you with the searches and though I like your header image I think you could do better (what guitar is that on the wall, looks nice but it's hard to tell with so many makes these days), not being critical just a few thoughts. Have fun!

This week I finally put an application using Elastic search in production! I've worked with it on another project but was never able to actually put it into production. I now have it running and it works really well. That's the second new technology I've put into production this year. Even after 4 years I'm still learning new things every day!

  • I wrote my first dev.to post for #TheyCoded.
  • I applied for three more developer jobs!
  • I cleaned and organized my work area so it was easier to sit down and focus on getting my work done.
  • I reached out to people I worked on group projects with and asked if they'd be interested in working on them more with me which was hard because I've got a lot of social anxiety. They agreed and we're going to clean up our project and make some improvements!

Also, I did a refactor on a messy codepen, now is good.

I wish I knew a secret formula, but I think good promotion helps.

  • Make sure to have pictures/GIFs near top of your README demonstrating your project.
  • Let relevant subreddits know of your project, check out the subreddits I used for my repo on the repo page!
  • Post on producthunt, a large influx of traffic actually came from producthunt for me as my post got #4 product of the day.

I conducted a React Workshop (that I've been preparing for months) to university students and it went great!

I'll make a post about it at some point but here's the link for now if anyone is interested:

This week I felt like I was stuck in a rut with my writing, I couldn't think of any good or "fun" topics to write about and I didn't think my post on styled-components would do very well (because I'm sure lots of other people have written about it already) but it didn't do too badly so that's my win for the week!

This week..Since I lost one of my biggest prospective clients on UpWork. I learned that I have to be more detailed in creating a project timeline/schedule for the client to understand non-technical things.

I worked a lot on Gwion !
I removed cryptic symbols (eg: no more #(0,0) but Complex(0,0) instead),
added some kind of constructors for these kind of structures (Unpack() for instance rebuilds the ast of its arguments).
I add a problem with vararg.start end vararg.end, but now varargs can be copied and there is a statement for its loop:

fun void test(...) {
  varloop vararg {

  }
}

And much more...

I'm currently implementing structs users side:

#! this is a comment
#! let's define a struct
struct S {
  int i;
  float f;
 #!  ...
}

such structs are like object (they can also have static variables and all kinds of functions) except they are stocked as is, whereas an object stores then in a data field.

Tackled some tricky javascript! I haven't touched javascript in a while, so relearning its quirks is definitely giving me a good challenge.

My win this week... Well, I submitted an open source contribution to rollup.js and I wasn't familiar with the codebase. But they accepted my bugfix and it unblocked me at work! So that felt good!
