This week, I was... interviewed on a secret podcast!
First position in Google with an article published on this amazing platform, in front of Nodejs and Microsoft links.
Thank you, @Dev.to .. <('_')> ..
Hosted my first office hours session. And people came! 😳
Nice! How did it go?
Swell! People were engaged and asked great questions
Finished writing my longest tutorial guide yet about making a REST API.
Im pretty new to backend stuff so this was hugely beneficial in helping me learn a lot of stuff by writing a guide.
👆 This! Writing a tutorial/guide for others, or in general preparing to teach a new topic to someone else, is one of the best ways to dig deep on a topic and learn it really well
Will check it out. Saved it to read later
Well done! Bookmarked to read this evening. 🔖
Vacation. Back to work Monday. Don't forget to take some downtime peeps!
We all know you took a vacation just to flex on your dev.to shirt and take this photo ;p
I got a dev.to award for posting 8 weeks straight
Wow! That's an impressive streak!
Made a Twitter account and got my first 10 followers! 🎉 Also I got promoted from junior developer to developer at work!
Awesome! Still got my junior title but it will come. Just started three weeks ago.
Awesome! Also, you have another new follower.
I built and published my first public Discord bot, all about preventing hate speech and tracking hate speech users!

Celebrated my anniversary!
Two wins this week!
I got my tech blog's RSS feed set up and working, so I can cross post to here. :) Super excited about that!
Also started running again a few weeks ago (doing a Garmin training plan to build up to a 5k) and hit my longest run tonight - 2 miles! 1 mile doing 30 sec run / 30 sec walk intervals, then 1 mile during my warm up / cool down. Haven't gone that long in a very long time!
Do you happen to have a favorite tutorial for setting up an RSS feed? I'd like to do so myself - but resources are surprisingly scarce, hard to follow, or immediately jump to using a service
I don't, unfortunately. :( I'm using the framework Gridsome for my blog, so I used one of their plugins for RSS feed functionality, & fiddled around with it until I actually got back the right information. lol
Are you using a specific framework for your blog, or is it self-hosted / hosted somewhere else? I'd be happy to see what I can help you find if you'd like!
Nice! Keep it up!
One of the projects our team is working on is providing a Windows implementation to the open source Envoy Proxy project.
Yesterday, for the first time in months, we got our fork of Envoy to compile on Windows!
Still can't announce it publicly, but I am going to be a Senior Software Developer for an accelerator laboratory starting in a few weeks! This has been my dream for many years!
Launched a project that I've been working on for the past 6 months: Divjoy, a React codebase generator. Haven't really promoted it yet, but it feels good to have it out in the public 😊
I wrote this article and had an overwhelming support from the community:
I'm building a thoughtful Twitter assistant!

Seriously folks, thank you! 😊🙏😭
Seeing the GIF featured in this post was definitely a win just now!
The good thing about working from home is you can laugh as loud as you want. 😆
