I have 2 wins this week!

  1. Went to my first ever meetup
  2. Made my first (very small) contribution to open source last night and saw that my PR was merged to master this morning!

Super pumped.

Nothing quite like that feeling when your first PR is accepted to a project! :D

For sure! It was also nice to finally contribute so now maybe I'll feel more confident looking for more!

I made my first GraphQL API! It's small right now, and I pulled what's left of my hair out trying to break apart the types and schema, but I'm proud of it. I've been dying to try it out, and it's very interesting.

I shipped my second feature in Django. From testing to shipping, it took drastically less time than my first feature.

Turns out an Email Automation I had set up has brought an additional 300 users to our site over the last 2 months. It's just a simple "New Products from Shoolu" that uses an RSS feed to track when new products get added. Mailchimp then pulls in that feed and if there are new products since the last email, send out a new email.

Uses Python and the BigCommerce API to generate the feed.

Wow. As someone who spent 5 years waiting to be told that my pain was due to a strange sounding disorder (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome), I can totally empathize with how amazing it is to finally have a name for the enemy. There’s a real power in knowing what it is you’re facing. Congrats.

Here’s my journey story if you’re interested. I’d love to read yours.

TOS was one of the things I got ruled out! It feels amazing to get answers. Maybe I’ll write about it sometime!

I gave a talk to motivate CS students in a remote college in South India and during the talk I asked them to write an idea for their first project and something amazing happened.

Also this is my first time talking to such a huge crowd.

Learned the live-version of Mayer's "Neon" on guitar. While it seemed just too out of reach just a few weeks ago, breaking it down and practising smartly did pay off. Will premiere it on thursday's company-bbq.

Went to the Irish Fitness Industry Awards last weekend with my wife where our fitness studio was nominated for Best Boutique Gym. We didn't win but had a great night and met some lovely people. Plus who doesn't like to get dressed up like James Bond every once in a while?

I made my first business card after a career change, even though I am still a student.
At a meetup, another guy was asking my email address, but there was no paper. He took another person's business card and let me write down my own email address in someone else's business card.
It was super awkward and I decided to make one.
