Still melting away. Down to 208lbs now. I've been training really hard and consistently for almost 3 months now and it's definitely paid off.

Who knows, maybe I'll turn back into the Hulk LOL.

I closed 5 incidents with one commit! It felt great to get so many issues addressed by actually fixing the design problems in our system. This brings the system basically to a stability point where we can shift to impactful enhancements.

I learned how to use Three.js with my partner! He is a 3D professional so this gives us a LOT of new opportunities! We learned the ins and outs of how to use it in web development.
He learned a whole lot this week, enough JavaScript (from scratch) to use THREE.js — how awesome is that? Hands down the win is so much more his than it is mine.

I also learned how to use basic NPM, TODO's in Atom, and some really cool JavaScript things I didn't know. I'm actually very glad that I got burnt out and mentally exhausted last week, after working on projects and studying non-stop for weeks. To me, it means that I've been working with all the processing power I can give, and that I really love these projects.

Not sure if it counts.
Last weekend, I volunteered for WordCamp Ottawa,
where was held more than 500km far away from my home.
In there, I received a tons of Kudos. 💝

Hello :)
This week I did a lot of the React course from Maximilian. I think I will finish it in two weeks and after that the first app will start 😅.

Thanks for ask, sometimes we focus on bad things and forget the good ones.

I wish you a fabulous weekend 😁

Completely agree, I'm enjoying too much the work he did and I think is because people like him we are getting better day by day.

Have a good day 😁😁💻💻☕☕
