So this week I have dived into the front end (yey!) of the feature, keeping me back was the Git pitfalls that I have experienced – rebase did not work, move between branches and lots of birokratik stuff. This is the phase I have been waiting for the whole feature, this is what I love […]Read more "The 7th Week"
This week I have enriched the API for the feature. It was difficult because I was not used to the language at all, nor the project logic or structure.

So, with all the documentation ready, I felt brave enough to give it a try, and – BAAM! my local environment got crashed. I picked up the […]Read more "The 2nd Week"

Last week my mentors and I, also finalized our instant messaging medium so that I can reach out to them easily. My project is about […]Read more "The First Week"
