Start your project, track the progress, get it done 🔥
A year from now you may wish you started today.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
Sometimes it is not about how much time we have, but how motivated we are.
You might be too busy to start now, but you will have less time in the future.
Life ends when one gives up learning and doing new things.
Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.
Success only come to those who dare to attempt
Persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement.
It's hard to beat a person who never gives up
There is no good idea, safe idea or stupid idea, just idea we like to work on.
You missed the best time to start, the second best time is now.
Do that thing you always thought of trying.
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.
Everyone should have a now page to tell about
"what I'm doing now".

Magic of Commitment
Once you commit to post consistent updates, it builds the momentum to things done.
You get into the habit of making progress.

Learning to deploy python in a production environmentMr Alexander Dowsett updated 2019-04-11T09:46:56.649514
I would love some hints and tips around this sort of thing. Any caveats I should know about? Rookie moves to avoid?

Wow a bit of a late update here.
Turns out that python is really good fun to use. I have been playing with boto and python to manipulate s3 buckets. I have managed to get a lot of logging introduced to the scripts that need to be run.
A long way to go, but getting there!
I might be too busy or lazy to create a blog of technical tutorials (it does slow down my programming), but those notes are meant for myself (I treat them as documentation), then I am slightly more motivated to do it.
One of the reason many online tutorial sucks is because the author didn't really use the tech in production, thus I shall only document about tech I used and the problems I faced.
Besides, since I did google for a lot of answer online on a daily basis, perhaps it's time to contribute back into the information pool.

I go this idea when I was refreshing my CV and building a personal profile/portfolio page, which I realized I have forgotten about some projects or I no longer have any material to prove their existence (web page no longer online, no screen capture).

Basic UI design
Learn & setup Git
Create a demo page: https://product404.com/products/hackerio
I am learning Kotlin and Android's latest Architecture Components, so I build this app to put my learning into actual practice.
Try LuaPass: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.luasoftware.luapass
The stack so far is kinda like this
docker on Azure
I have a bunch of issues regarding efficiency, the app displays heavy renders of maps and visualizations
- I need help setting up CI/CD
- I need to update a lot of tests (I'm using pytest)

After going through tech job posting for last 30 days, the task to process/clean/tag the postings seems to out weight the benefits gained.
As a job finder, the important thing I look for are
- Culture/Product of the company
- Salary and Tech Stack of the job post
The current job boards are not perfect, but the search feature is adequate enough to filter keywords I am looking for. As for quality of company and job, this is not something a job board could solve. As for processing each posting to offer a more structured data, it is nice but would not be very helpful.
I would stop this project as for now.
FlowRabbit: Task management with time tracking for solo makersDesmond Lua updated 2018-10-04T05:03:20.652516
- Designed for solo makers
- Productivity Tracking: Integrated Pomodoro timer and productivity reporting to measure your time spent projects and type of work; also highlight your productive days/hours.
- Enhanced Kanban Board: a more flexible kanban board which support task grouping and expandable checklist. Includes widgets to show quick project status and Pomodoro reporting.
I have been using KanbanFlow (not the best UI, but it works) for a few years and notice it lacks some features I would love to have. Trello, Asana, Ora, ZenKit and Airtable are good products in their own ways, just not suited for what I have in mind. I run the risk of developing a product for myself only, so I should explore if others find this product useful for them.
