I finally managed to finish an article on which I had worked for two weeks, most of that time battling writer's block.

Additionally, I made my first contribution to Forem's repository by initiating a discussion about adding internationalization to dev.to: github.com/forem/forem/discussions....

No, I initiated the discussion using GitHub. However, you can do it by following this guide: developers.forem.com/getting-start....

After having tried to sell our startup's ChatGPT chatbots for 4 months, and failing miserably, things are finally starting to pick up, and we're getting many orders per week now. Not really developer related, but it's refreshing realising somebody out there is actually willing to pay for all the hard work we put into our development :)

It's a combination of everything. Our sales process, the communication on the website, SEO, Social Media initiatives, etc ...

Weeks not over just yet for me! The weekends are when I shine... Hopefully I'll have started on my programming language's virtual machine and it'll be a real win when I see some of the operations executing statements!

I used CSS transitions and animations for the very first time: codepen.io/tbroyer/pen/jOXVjjM (ok, @jh3y made most of the work, this is a fork of his pen, and I applied @bramus' tip to go from "scroll driven animation" (animation is directly linked to scroll position) to "scroll triggered animation" (animation has fixed time-based duration, and is triggered when crossing a scroll threshold).

It's not perfect (the avatar animation restarts if you cross the threshold again while the first animation was still running, ideally it would just reverse from where it was) but it was my very first time with those and I didn't spend that much time doing it, so I'm rather happy with the result!

Started writing my fourth blog on Rust basics. Recently, I started learning Rust and I am actually loving it. So I thought I would write something about whatever I have learnt in Rust. Currently writing my fourth blog (All of them are currently drafts. Will be published soon.)

Figured out work around for Power BI when using Analyze in Excel. The values field for the pivot table wouldn't allow adding sigma categories from fact tables. I'm used to GCC tenant limitations but this was a software limitation that I absolutely needed to overcome. It came at a cost on the DEV side for me but totally worth it.
