I'm participating in Advent of Code for the first time and learned a lot about parsing inputs as external files this week.

Related to Advent of Code, I learned that in Javascipt .split() takes an optional second argument of a number of splits to make. It came in handy for the Day 2 problem.

And I watched Ania's Make Your Oen API video. I've done a few projects with backend APIs but the refresher on building a very simple one was inspiring and helpful.

Nice! I have the book, but haven't started it yet. I have some others to read first, but will probably get to this during the holidays.

Accessibility. Even though the UI frameworks that we use tackle most of the accessibility problems, we still have a lot to do.
I wrote an article about this

I launched my #100DaysOfKotlin learning journey - and in the process I learned about mkdocs (static site generator using markdown), discovered their material-mkdocs theme and became obsessed with it.

End result:
Learned enough to get a site running that is perfect for my #100Days journey!
See: kotlin.fyi

I really want to write a post on mkdocs now and I hope to do that soon. But for the curious - here are the links (and yes it deploys to GitHub pages easily - and can be setup with Github Actions to auto build/deploy - though I haven't done that yet)

Mkdocs: mkdocs.org/
Material Theme: squidfunk.github.io/mkdocs-material/

Bonus: It's really built for effective documentation requirements so if you understand and love folder hierarchies for organizing information, and Markdown for formatting pages - then you will 😍 it too!

I really hate asynchronous programming, but I spent today making a set of generic C# classes that handle API requests/responses that I can reuse in future programs so I don't have to do this again.

I got an intro to pair programming with Martin Fowler's article. I'm excited to practice more now that I know the theory.
