This week, I....went through 350+ issues in the DEV repo and updated (most) of them with appropriate labels!

That gif is very literally me. I got a label maker for Christmas last year and now pretty much everything in my life has a label.

I finished my first C++ project today. It plays Battleship with you, and this morning my automated computer player beat me in an honest match.

Take that, me.

I submitted the title and abstract for my upcoming talk. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

The title slide for my talk

Title: A Disabled Dev’s Journey
Abstract: Every company wants to be first to market, but that's only one part of a product's success. Companies often consider accessibility too time-consuming or difficult to put into place without remembering that meeting customer needs is what keeps them in the market. This talk will cover my experience advocating for accessibility as a disabled developer and why there's no excuse for treating it as an edge case.

Thank you! It's actually for a local Python meetup. It'll be my first one ever so it'll be a little bit before I submit to any conferences. I need some practice first! 🀩

The development team at my company is currently a small group of two (me and my manager) and my manager has been out of town for the entire week - I didn't blow up anything or need any major assistance. I consider that a huge win!

Finally I've felt complete on my first time "ricing" my stuff. Learnt more on Arch Linux (and Linux in general), completely changed my dev setup, and did a lot of research for the individual tools I'm going to use. It's feel quite unproductive during the week but the first phase of the whole process is finally done and felt comfortable to continue and improve this setup over time.

Here's the resulting output of the setup. You can also see my config files on GitHub.

EDIT: For more examples, you can visit /r/unixporn. Feedback is appreciated. :D

Released my app Uteroo this week. Had this app idea back in 2016. I want it to help educate girls, women,and the non-binary in South Africa about menstrual health, since it's such a taboo. It is mostly aimed at those that menstruate. The app is only available in South Africa and Botswana for it's initial release, but more info can be found at uteroo.co.za ☺️

Discovered Gatsby and Netlify, then deployed my portfolio using both technologies ✨! Still making some changes, but at least it's better than nothing πŸ˜…

Hey there ✨Their documentation is AWESOME I basically followed this tutorial. Took me 2 hours to finish the tutorial and then a couple more to do the portfolio. Basically, you can documentation+portfolio in a day ✨✨
They also show you how to deploy to Netlify πŸ˜„. Everytime you push to the master branch it does the build/deployment AUTOMATICALLY and bam your site is live πŸŽ‰

Hope this helps :))
