Submitted my Twilio hackathon project and wrote a post about it!! Wrote and published on reddit my first ever attempt at writing fantasy (!!! -reddit.com/r/shortstories/comments... ), submitted a comment for the podcast which was super highly voted, submitted two PRs to improve the docker compose specification which has just been open sourced... And today I'll read a bit about docker and kubernetes! :D

I finished my first week of #100daysofcode, wrote my first two blog posts on this site, and made it past the first two interviews at a company I would love to work for after being laid off last week because of coronavirus.

The final interview is Monday, fingers crossed! 😬

I pre-launched a course NodeCLI.com β€” this is my first time ever pre-launching a course with pre-order stuff and all. Takes a lot of guts. The constant fear of failure after taking people's money is not a good thing. I wanted to launch it a week ago but just kept testing the entire setup, in hindsight I might have been dealing with imposter syndrome and procrastination.

Woohoo! πŸ₯³πŸ₯³πŸ₯³

Built a serverless app to monitor the number of tweets in the UK relating to saying thankyou to our NHS and frontline workers. Check it out :-)

Cant take credit for the front end, I'm lucky to have a designer for a brother.

I finally managed to encapsulate my gulp-tasks into an npm module called zarro because:

  • git submodules are hard for people to grok and use correctly
  • zarro makes installation and consumption (and updating) way easier
  • I kind of need zarro for some open-source work I'm about to try to do on a very well-known library which has been made dormant because there aren't devs to work on it

I've been diligent in coding practice and I'm getting to where I can write some things without looking things up for C and Perl. Set a goal for coding to build a Magic: The Gathering card database in SQL. Did get a Perl script written to bulk load cards into a 27 column database (Yes, Magic cards have a lot of data).

Visibility is very hard to gain when there's no dedicated platform, or when the dedicated platform to share interesting packages have a very bad UI/UX (I'm talking here about django applications & djangopackages.org, which is not friendly to use).

This week has been rather... weird. Half of the week, I lost half of my brain cells for trying to understand WPF but when I decided to switch to ASP.NET MVC for the hackathon, and I got a breath of relief as I understood things easier. To summarize:

  • Loss of brain cells over WPF
  • Learned the basics of ASP.NET MVC
  • Finished the UI for the app
  • Made plans for the app (very important, i don't wanna put too much features on it actually)
