I am usually very anxious during interview. This is the very first time, I enjoyed the whole interview process and never felt anxious even when I didn't answer few questions correctly. It was a big win for me.

I'm learning Rails again. I want to switch careers and become a Rails developer though I know I've a long way to go.

Worked my way through this fantastic tutorial on turbo streams then spent this afternoon building a toy app. It's an up hill struggle but I'm feeling more confident, little by little.

Last Friday I made the decision to write a static analyzer for PHP in Rust, so I can better understand Rust. I can happily say I'm starting to like how helpful the compiler is.

Github link to project.

Very cool! That sounds like a good way to dig into the language. And of course, here's my obligatory: you should consider writing about this on DEV! Haha, I don't mean to push ya into it, but that does like a pretty cool topic and I bet we'd be down to share your post over our Rust focused Twitter account here. If ya do end up writing on it, please shoot me a message back here so I'll know to tap our social team.

I'm a front-end developer for half a year now and now I managed to find a decent job. I carefully searched for vacancies and a couple of days ago I was hired here ibench.net/. Cool platform by the way, I didn’t know about it before

I finished up my Pagination guide and I’m happy to say that I don’t think I’ll be forgetting how to build it for future projects! That’s the best part about sharing.

At a recent virtual tech meetup that focus on presenting a personal project to others I was able to demo 5 small projects built over the last few weeks to practice React, building with pure Vanilla JavaScript, and learn TypeScript.
series of small projects:
β–ͺ Pomodoro Clock (Converted React to TypeScript)
β–ͺ Tip Calculator (React)
β–ͺ Product Creation UI (TypeScript)
β–ͺ Episode Listing (React and Vanilla JS)
β–ͺ Range Slider (React and Vanilla JS)

One additional project was shown off to help explain to others how "Higher Order Components" work with state management in React.
β–ͺ Fantasy Football (React)

I really loved the feedback and the follow up discussion on different types of database you can use with personal projects.
