Thanks!

Still can't believe someone thought I'm responsible enough to sell a house to.

Never mind trust with a few hundred thousand dollar mortgage...

I made a new NPM package called projectman (github.com/saurabhdaware/projectman) which got 28 stars today and also wrote an article about it on DEV and it became my first article to reach 100+ reactions and it just makes me so happy to see people are liking it!

I also started learning Rust and wrote my first "Hello, World!" program in it! (I freaked out when rust threw an error for camelCasing function name ๐Ÿ˜‚)

I survived a real rollercoaster of a week at work and started prepping a "lunch and learn" for colleagues on Gatsby ๐Ÿ˜

I've got next week off work and looking forward to some good coding time... Maybe even finally updating my portfolio!

I finally managed to buy a standing desk that can be controlled electronically!

So much more fun to work from home a couple of days again and boosted my productivity a little.

Replacing my old setup with this one was a lot of fun on its own but it was more fun to work with the new setup afterwards ๐Ÿ˜Š

Only need a second monitor again.

At this week, I'm fighting with millions of data records with CSV formats and import them to MySQL database.

To store large data records, some tips are as follows:

  • Enhance the bash script development skills about importing data records to tables.
  • Using partitions to create table and let date field have the range and it can help selection to be optimized.
  • In InnoDB engine, close auto_commit, unique check and foreign check before using LOAD DATA to import CSV data records to MySQL database table.
  • Help our data scientists to optimize their problem of building web service. And optimize slow SQL query when selecting data records in specific table.
