It has been an amazing week for me related to writing articles on DEV.
It's been so overwhelming.
Couldn't be more thankful to DEV community 🙏🙏
congrats on the great success! It feels good when you get featured in specialized accounts like that.
The DEV Community is ✨Amazing
My wife and I bought our first house!!! 🏠
Also, I released a new major version of Orchid: 0.19.0
👪 Life-changing week in the Brooks house!
I gave my first meet up talk!
yay congratulations🎉 What was the talk about? how did it go? how was the overall experience? This is huge🐨🌻
Aw thank you! It was titled "Becoming an accessibility-focused developer". And it went so well! I was nervous in the run up but people were really nice and asked lots of good questions after 😁
The video will be released soon but I have the slides up on bit.ly/a11y-focused-developer in case you're interested
This is amazing! Thank you for sharing the slides I will check them out. I gave my first talk 2 weeks back and I had a similar experience, people were super nice!
Oh awesome! What did you speak about? Do you think you'll do more?
It was titled "Web Performance Hacks 😎" I talked about HTML Parsing and Rendering in the beginning and then I talked about how we can get the first paint as quickly as possible.
And yes I loved the overall experience so I'm totally looking to do more!
Here are my slides for web performance hacks talk
That sounds so interesting! I'll definitely check out the slides 😁
Woot Woot 🎉
Launched the beta of my startup debugg.me and had 3 users sign up on the first day! It's not much but it's honest work :)
Nice job! Nice meme reference too ;)
That is an awesome looking landing page
Thanks! It means a lot. The landing page is one of the things I'm most proud of
I made my first Android app, at least something that I can actually call a functional app. Its a game.
Also I done full backend of one of my projects in flask so it stayed to finish when I have time the part that is frontend related. It will be Vue.js.
Also I worked on one more of my projects and done quite a lot on the level on improving my organisation and notes talking and prioritisation.
I learned about publishto.dev/ and queued up a number of articles.
I kicked off a new series with my article what-is-kedro. The next one will be out on Monday.
Wrote a Twitter bot that tweets hugs at you!
Need a hug? There's a bot for that!

Wrote my first article here and it’s quite nice feeling, it makes me want to write and share more :)
The DEV community seems to have that effect on many of us! Please share a link. This is a place you are welcome to plug your work shamelessly.
I fixed a bug on a Django web application. The development server used to crash while converting HTML to PDF using WeasyPrint with Segmentation Fault. I found the reason to be wrong external URL which was making it to fail. It took a whole week to find this out. I wish I was a better developer.
I posted my first lesson to YouTube, had a [redacted] and will be [redacted]!
After writing a couple of web-relared arricles, I got the CSS badge on DEV.
At work, the whole team had a great sprint, we had a release of our component library, and got closer to our end of March deadline 🙂
I did a lot of productive work on a side project that I've been thinking about for a long time! It is going to be an API based on #Laravel. I like how it is turning out so far, but there's still a lot of work to be done.
I just released my landing page though: quizapi.io
My wins this week were...
Taking the initiative of turning web development as a hobby to web development as a career.
Taught myself Docker so I could transition deploying my apps from Heroku to DigitalOcean (Saving a bunch of money each month)
Attended a coding meetup where I actually engage with other members
Created my portfolio design from scratch and deployed a pixel-perfect copy that was mobile responsive.
Sent out my first resume
Thank you so much for this post to help me reflect on this hectic week. I wasn't confident if making the decision to turn my hobby into a career was the right choice in my life, but I definitely feel like I am moving towards... well, something :)
Lately, I was finding it a little difficult to write but this month I ended up writing 3 articles!
Also, I made GUI for DEV.to widget 🌻:
I successfully managed to trim my cat's nails this week for the first time ever 😺
