  • Summer 2021 projects

    The past few months have been a mix of productive and lazy days. Some days, I got up and was focused for most hours, got some work done and also some personal tasks done and others were a wash. But overall, I think the pandemic’s languishing feelings are starting to subside as I try to […]

  • TIL: null is an object in Javascript

    I’ve been in a lull about learning concepts related to programming and web development the past few months so yesterday when I got an email about Just Javascript, I signed up for the course to check out how it will be. So far, I’m running into pleasant surprises like how there are only nine data […]

  • Some digging into embedding comparable images

    I recently had an idea to compare two images side by side and ideally having a slider present to be able to see one more than the other. I wanted to get to a MVP of this but after spending a couple of hours, I decided to just jot down my notes about it so […]

  • Dull lull in July

    I’ve been going through a slow time in July and I haven’t been very active on my computer besides using it for work at work. At home, I’ve just been keeping away from the computer almost full-time. There is some good news because of this, I’ve started to spend more time reading, doodling, eating, and […]

  • Goodbye Bookends, for now

    Today, I’m stopping work on Bookends. In this post, I’d like to reflect on why I’m stopping work on it, what I’ve learned, and what’s next. Bookend’s purpose is to help track and discover books. So far, I don’t think I’ve solved this. What I’ve learned When I started the project, I had a simple […]

  • Serving Vue.js apps on Github Pages

    I wanted to share a pretty simple setup on how to serve a Vue.js app using Github Pages. I’m writing this because I had to search around online for awhile before I stumbled upon the Vue.js docs and then had to play with some settings in Github. For this exercise, I’ll use a sample project […]

  • Setting up Fathom for all my sites

    So yesterday, I was learning about how nginx works and how to serve multiple sites (web apps even) from the same machine at different URLs. I wanted to do this because I don’t know much about nginx so I thought of it as an experiment to try. So after I got it working, I remembered […]

  • Trying out a new workflow for personal projects

    I don’t have any serious personal projects right now because I usually start something small like the following few: Go shortener Coins And after starting them, I realize that I got them done in a short spurt of energy but they are not projects I have much consistency with that I will actually keep up […]

  • Bookends, for fun and for learning

    During the months of May and June, I worked on a hobby project with a friend of mine called “Decide”. You can go check it out here. During development, I learned a couple of new things, technical and personal things about myself. Technically, I learned some React based on Next.js. If you’re about to start […]

  • Mid-May update

    In the past 2-3 months, I’ve been writing way more code and relatively more blog posts than I had before starting this blog. This has been mainly due to my goal of being consistent about things that interest me. I’m writing this post because I haven’t posted in about 10 days and I was getting […]
