I discovered python itertools and a service called distancematrix.ai

 
 

I learned the actual difference between block, inline, and inline-block elements. I always had an intuition about them but had never actually figured out the exact rules.

 
 

Made my first kinda-complex keyframe animation with CSS! Took a while to figure out switching between timing functions but I finally figured out a neat bounce effect. Could use a blog post maybe 👀

I took something that was a C# monolith and began breaking it out into microservices. Specifically, I'm using Azure Functions, which are new to me although the concept of serverless isn't, and I gotta say... I'm hooked. I love every bit of it. I've previously used the standard ol' SQL database, but I've been setting up my functions to use and trigger off of CosmosDB in Azure, and it's really fun to work with and makes me feel smarter than I am.

 
 

I learned how to add a custom item to the right click menu (Context menu) in windows to open PowerShell in my current directory using this thread.

I have finally finished my second post on dev.to
dev.to/glebirovich/angular-in-reac...

Also had a chance to look into PiXi js. I dream to work on creating a browser game as my side 🥳🥳project

 
 

I learnt how joins work in SQL, and their connection (or lack thereof) with foreign keys. Wrote up what I learnt in this post on dev.to post

 

Awesome that you wrote up a post on what you learnt. 🔥

 
 
 

I learnt a little bit of Flask, followed the tutorial on their website. But there was a lot to take in.

Currently following another tutorial:
blog.miguelgrinberg.com/post/the-f...

 

As a beginner I was getting overwhelmed by all those frameworks and technology,
So finally after few days of running here and there I found what is good for me 😀
