That is awesome !
congratulations! Please write a blog here about your journey!
This week, I....managed to exercise every day! And got some awesome feedback from @peter :
Awesome! Don't you love how exercise clears the mind and holistically benefits? I think I am now addicted to walks a couple times a day.
This week, I manage not to overwhelm myself and stretch myself too thin by saying 'no' at work.
Nice! This is one of the skills that I wish I was a bit better at.
That is so important!
This week, I thought of a fun side project! Going to try to do it this weekend... stay tuned! ;)
I hope you wrote it down before you forget 😈😉
This week, I... learned how to set up SSL, disable TLS 1.0, and update our DNS settings without taking down production!!!
Gratz!! I am browsing basically the same waters (mostly SSL now), so any resources / links could be of a great help :) Once again - sincere congratulations :)
I should note that I've essentially done this with training wheels since we're on Heroku 😂 Here are the resources I used to set this up:
tracerouteto make sure my new DNS settings were in place
opensslfor confirming that we don't support TLS 1.0 was very useful.
openssl s_client -connect google.com:443 -tls1 -servername google.comin particular
General docs that have helped me as I voyage into networking:
Can you please run down the steps you've followed to achieve this.
Sure! I'm using Heroku for this though, so a lot of the "hard stuff" was abstracted away. My basic process was like so:
tracerouteto check that domain resolves to the new SSL endpoint
heroku certs:removecommand from the CLI
opensslor SSL Labs (takes much longer but is interesting)
I'm struggling with the same issue,
I meant to ask, what certificate providers did you use?
and does setting ssl-endpoint means that you have to renew it manually when the certificate expires?
and does this means that if our websites forces browser to use a secure connection that would be a down time if the certificate expires
I am new to this and I've read tons of articles which made me more confused
I built a snowman for the first time.
This week, I.... made it through! Had a tough week with personal stuff on top of the stuff I normally do, and was stressed.
This week, I wrote an entire library with best practices and CI/CD in spite of high pressure from management and with a tight approaching deadline. Feels good at the end of the day to have done the right thing...
This week, I managed to re-engineer a SQL job that was running for more than 6 hours and make it run in 10 minutes!
We need a POST about it
Sure I would do that.
Nice! That's some serious time saved!! 🔥
This week, I replaced promise...then...catch with async/await in an app and took the time to throw relevant errors. It has made the code much easier to read. Next step is to add try/catch blocks to refine error handling.
I also ran 3 days this week (wish it would get warm! Hurry up Spring!)
This week, I managed to leave my job without turning into a big crying mess!
In all seriousness, it is more that I have progressed into fulltime work on my dream of running a Software Dev company.
This week, I finally finished my first post on dev.to. I still have to check it a few times and it will be ready to be published this weekend!
And now I've actually posted my first post on dev.to 🎉🎉🎉

This week, I built out a workflow to patch a bunch of servers in parallel. Needs some brains still, but it's already going to save a couple days a month for whichever engineer has to roll out patches to our relatively large fleet.
This week, I....managed to do 3 Days Water Fasting and lost about 2.5KG weight.
For those who keep working day at night by sitting on computer like me and cant go to gym should do Water fasting to lost weight.
That's great progress! but also a bit risky, that's a drastic weight loss.
When we talk about weight loss we're supposed to lose the extra pounds lying around in form of fat. Often when water fasting we lose water, carbs and muscle mass. Im putting extra emphasis on muscle mass as it's very important. Hope you're taking these things in consideration :)
Yes, you are right. We need to keep electrolytes and other things inside body while doing water fasting. I tried to use sea salt and other methods to keep them inside.
Real magic happens when body fully transformed into ketosis mode.
Wow! How did you feel doing it?
First two days were tough, like very tough. Alot of headache, low energy.
Couldn't sleep the second night.
Third day was great, felt fresh like usual days and was ready to make it 5 days.
This week, I.... updated my side project to be a PWA! It was a lot of fun looking into what was required and making the minor tweaks to get it going.
