Launched Fungarzione - The Changelog Of The Future

I got frustrated with the app I was using for writing changelogs for Sizzy, so I decided to sit down and write my own tool with some more advanced features that will make the process easier. I livestreamed the entire process from "hello world" to deployment. You can check it out here and I wrote a bit more about it here.

Reached 3600 Twitch followers and became Twitch Affiliate

I honestly have no plan when it comes to my streaming, but it's pretty cool to see the channel grow! Becoming a Twitch Affiliate means that now you can support the channel with subscriptions and bits, and if you have Amazon Prime you can subscribe for free with Prime Gaming 🙌

Got raided by Michael Reeves on Twitch with 22.000 viewers

Welp, that was a pretty crazy day. I haven't heard of Michael Reeves before (no idea how) and he decided to raid my stream with all of his viewers. At first it was a mess because I didn't know how to handle 22.000 people spamming "drill go brr" at once, but after I figured out how to turn on slow and follower-only chat, everything was fine.

 

If you haven't seen Michael's videos on YouTube I cannot recommend them enough.

Started a gaming channel on Twitch

I didn't want to spam the people who follow me for programming content with notifications about gaming, so I started a separate gaming channel on Twitch. I usually play single-player games with good stories, so if you want to hang out with me while I'm gaming you can follow the channel 😄

2 months without Twitter

Deleting my Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn accounts were some of the best decisions of my life. However, my relationship with Twitter is different because it's weirdly entangled with my professional life and of course, my ego.

 

Staying away from it for 2 months was a huge win for me and it completely changed my opinion on it. I posted a pinned tweet today just so I can pin it and inform people that I'm actually doing alright without Twitter.

 

I don't think that people who are constantly active on Twitter realize how much of a mental toll it can take on a person. I think I realized that on time I don't see myself going back to my old Twitter habits. I wrote more about it here.

How I tricked my brain into working out 24 times in 30 days

This is not a metaphor for working out programming problems, it's about actual workouts, something that us, the developers, usually have a problem with.

 

I mean, who in their right mind would like to workout when there are fun programming problems to solve, feeds to scroll, and interesting people to exchange ideas with? It's nice and cozy. It's the ultimate comfort zone. When you wake up in the morning instead of jumping into your running shoes, you can't wait to jump on Twitter

How to use the src directory and absolute imports in Next.js

I'm super excited that this is finally a thing so all of my source code (src, get it) can live in the src directory and I can import it using absolute imports.

 
  • Make a tsconfig.json or jsconfig.json file
  • Add the baseUrl option:
{
"compilerOptions": {
"baseUrl": "./src"
}
}

That's it 🎉

 

If you're a WebStorm user make sure to right click the src directory and click "Mark as resource root".

Published the original version of Sizzy

Back when I was freelancing, I was working for a client who wanted perfect responsive design and I got super frustrated by using Google Chrome to preview a website on multiple devices at once.
