2019: The Year in review

Last year I wrote a list of things I wanted to achieve in 2019. So I thought why not I write a blog post every year-end about what I did throughout the year.

This post will be really helpful when I look back and think about what I did and how much I learned every year etc.

Summary of the year:

My blog posts

I wrote only 1 article in 2019 πŸ˜†. In 2020, I am planning to write at least 1 article per month 😬.

Few blogs I frequent visit:

  1. http://dev.to
  2. https://web.dev
  3. https://v8.dev
  4. http://kentcdodds.com
  5. http://overreacted.io
  6. https://css-tricks.com

I also maintain a git repo called Today I Liked which has all the articles I read throughout this year.

Open Source Projects

I have more OSS projects in my GitHub, in which some are half baked/just ideas and some are completed fully but in private repo.

More open-source projects can be found here.

Git streaks

Once my wise friend Hemanth told me that git streaks are just gimmicky and all it does is put stress on you and that he stopped doing it. I wanted to stop as well and take breaks whenever I can and I need to.

Hence my streaks look like this.

Git Streaks 2019

But now looking back I took a lot of breaks πŸ™„πŸ˜† and feel great about it.
