This week, I... helped launched a kickass #SheCoded campaign with the team! It was definitely our best year ever and I'm so glad the landing page now exists so we can browse all we want throughout the year. We're going to update this in a few days with the full collection of #SheCoded campaigns (from 2017 + 2018). I'm so happy with how it all went!

Congrats! 🎉

Btw the landing page url isn't working, it is wrapped in ().

This week, I’m so happy the #shecoded event went so well in terms of how the event sort of fit right into the site pretty well between the landing page, sidebar, home feed, etc.

Making an event like that fit the mechanics of the site so seamlessly has been a real journey as the third year doing it.

And of course the energy was awesome and the posts were illuminating and heartwarming and/or heartbreaking.

This week, I.... went to the gym for the first time in my life! I felt so sore all week - could barely move!


Being stuck to a seat, I managed to publish a post months in the making (The anatomy of a critical vulnerability) plus a little API library in .NET!

As someone who (voluntarily) started a routine exercise regimen about 6 years ago, you are absolutely right. The first week, often the first DAY after your first workout, is the worst, and getting into the habit is the hardest part. However, it's awesome that you got started in the first place!

This week, I started a new project. I've built a log monitoring panel and its backend. I used Python Flask and Vue.js

My company started using my project in our projects :) Backend has API endpoints. So, my project works integrated by PHP, C#, Java and JavaScript languages.

My project shows error logs, general logs etc and it will show SQL queries (I'm working on it). It has filtering etc. features.

When I completed it I'll share it as an open source project.

This is my project manager;

This week, I broke 900 subscribers here and got my very tiny but first PR merged into the codebase! I'm still very new to the community, but I really enjoy everything around here: the people (both big names and code newbies, open-minded and inspiring), the joy of information flow and the structure of the platform itself.

Plus, my side project started getting some very serious traffic so I had to upgrade the server plan and face scalability and performance issues which were, thankfully, gone in 3 painful days of a "mostly" purely front-end developer reading through a shitload of various docs. So yeah, it's been a great week!

Congrats on the PR merge! Even the smallest of changes helps make the site better!

This week, I....wrote my first post on as a part of #shecoded! I also commented on a post I loved, updated my profile and now I'm participating in this reflection. And I finally repotted my plants!

This week, I... gave two talks at different events. My article on Getting Started with Gridsome was featured in the official Vuejs newsletter and the new dynamic newsletter. Lastly, I received the 8-week streak badge on 💃

This week, I....

I setup my dream stack:

  • Universal React application.
  • Typescript for type checking and linting.
  • Graphql for API
  • Suspense for universal data fetching.

At least i'm done, and i'm very happy. Now i stop chasing hot trend, and focus more on business.

Do I sense irony?

We can all say that we want to focus more on the business, but it's inevitable that we spend a lot of time learning new stuff and experimenting with it. But yes, it's sometimes too much time and the point is you're never done, there's always something new around the corner.

My goal is just: making it work for the first time, then make it stable enough for production.
Only later will refactor or swap part of the stack with newer things if nessessary.

This week, I fixed an annoying Let's Encrypt rate limit "gotcha". It was something that confused/frustrated lots of users and it has been on my back burner since July 2017!

This week, I.... came up with something, called using files as keys in a website for authentication providing both knowing and having something. (inspired by KeePass and VeraCrypt)

It's only half-won though, I need help with the math for it. (I will probably be writing a post about it). But I'm very proud of it, because it's intended to make weak passwords a lot more secure.

This week, I....

Learned MSBuild to automate building click once projects, that reduced the time it takes me to build a package by hand from 20 minutes to 2 minutes.
