Day 10 of #10-days-in-public 🎊 Got exams this coming week, so probably won't be able to work on AoC. But almost finished all the projects for the FCC's JS DSA track! It's kinda amazing to know that I can actually maintain consistency (at least for 10 days straight ) Hope to keep this going for more!
Also finished our major project today, presentation tomorrow :D
Day 8/10 of #10-days-in-public! Completed day 6 of AoC, it was much easier than I thought it'd be. Did a lot of work on my "copyright infringement detector" project, sketched a data model for storing perceptual hashes of our videos, hosted a redis instance on digital ocean and pushed all our data on it. Wrote a lot of python, and ffmpeg scripts for the project, kinda getting the hang of python now.
Day 7/10 of #10-days-in-public! Worked on AoC day 5. Parsing took a good amount of time, but the algorithm was pretty straightforward, had a lot of fun :)
Also refreshed my regex knowledge today, and solved some regex puzzles today!
Also attended DevFest New Delhi today (3rd Dec '22) at Radisson Blu, Aerocity. I posted all the updates about devfest on my twitter :p AND the coolest thing about this event was the dedicated Web track. It was so soo amazing to attend all the JS talks! I need more JS talks in my life <3
Day 5/10 of #10-days-in-public, completed today's AoC, submitted CFP for ceph days nyc 🤞, and will solve "Wherefore art thou" question of fcc's intermediate js algorithm scripting course later today! Excited ✨ (also my end sem exams starting from 12th December, hope that doesn't mess up my consistency :D )
Day 4 of #10-days-in-public, finished today's AoC challenge, chapter 2 of Designing data intensive applications book and solved another js algorithm question from fcc's intermediate js algorithm scripting course!
Day 3/10 of #10-days-in-public Wrote some Scala for my Big Data with Hadoop and Spark course, and found scala really cool. Paired with a recurser and solved today's Advent of code and pushed the solutions on my github: github.com/aaryanporwal/advent_of_code_2022. Also published a post on my blog page after a long time and finally gonna be working on algorithms in js later today!
Eagerly waiting for this year's advent of code!
Day 2 of #10-days-in-public!!! Solved a lot of js algorithm problems. Also working on a lot of projects this week :)
Our team won the second prize 😁 in "Hackanoodle" hackathon by Zomato and Blinkit at Zomato HQ in Gurgaon and Bangalore! Around 300 members and 75 teams participated from all over India and built on the theme "India's next unicorn".
Got a Marshall's speaker, a secret prize 🌴 and a tonne of swag 😎
Attended DelhiFOSS yesterday, organized by the amazing FOSS United. Met a lot of cool nerds and learnt a lot from the talks!
OMG TIL that React StrictMode (which is enabled by default in create-react-app) renders components twice in order to detect any problems with your code and warn you about them. Even react docs mentions this!
How I came across this: I added a Toast component in my useEffect, and it was showing up twice on every load. Which lead me to a LOT of reading and googling, and realizing I'm using useEffect wrong and React is trying to tell me that :)
This was fun.
Making a full stack application and trying out FastApi :python: . It's a leads management system (CRM). Frontend in react and bulma, and backend in fastapi ✨
Approved for GitHub sponsorship!
100 followers on GitHub! 🎉
Made a distance calculator, that shows the route and time to travel between two cities. Made using react, chakra UI, and react-google-maps/API that uses Google maps API V3.
Deployed on: gmaps.aaryanporwal.com
JODC's first workshop this semester. 136+ people hacked together their personal websites and are now ready for Hacktoberfest ✨
Built the 2048 game in react! Check it out at 2048.aaryanporwal.com
Also have to add a score feature, will decide on the score logic later and have to add mobile phone support as well (currently using keyboard keydown events, will be fun to see what events trigger in phone on swipes 🧐 ) Excited to build this 🏗️
Making 2048 game in react! It's complex and needed a lot of thinking. Also a lot of functions and hooks 😋
My workshop in Assemble!!!!!!
Reading about HTTP/3 ⚡ and the myths around it (spoiler alert, it doesn't solve world hunger! ) Found this amazing article on http3 in the smashing magazine newsletter 🗞️ and now I'm thinking of giving a tech talk on it soon. Probably this or the next Friday at the recurse center.
Hunting for them jobs! It's so overwhelming omg.
I've been reading a gazillion of articles and taking wisdom from the holy reddit and what not oof. I wish I didn't have to worry about this. Wish me luck 🤞
Look at the IPv6 addresses of facebook! I wonder how they get to choose their own ip addresses? 🤔
Learning Typescript! I had previously worked with Angular and typescript, but I felt like I needed to learn more and so here I am :lfg: .
Found out that you can attach developer tools to a separate Chrome instance using the "chrome devtools protocol".
Can be very useful for when some malicious website doesn't let you open devtools or has mechanisms in place to detect when user opens devtools. (Like a lot of online test platforms prevent users from opening dev tools to prevent plagiarism)
TIL why we need to wrap multiple JSX tags in react.
Can't wait to code, work on projects and also to *present my workshop* ✨
San Francisco Day 2!
Reached Oakland, California! The weather is so good omg :)
VEGASSSSSSSGotta advertise Hack Club 🤷
San Francisco, here I come!
Almost completed the application to demo the first web vulnerability: CSRF. It's part of my project at the University of Florida - "Automatic Detection and Remediation of Security Vulnerabilities in Web Applications".
UF's Century Tower, the auditorium and 4th of July prep!
New york city's bryant park!
Learning Ruby from The Odin Project. So far I'm really liking the developer friendliness of the language! Will post some of the weird quirks of the language soon 🔜 ✨
Today I learnt that all elements in a DOM with an ID are available as global variables.
In other words, the value of the id attribute for all elements are made available as properties of the global window object, and since window is the global object in the browser, it is accessible as a global variable!
This is so cool, and why wasn't I aware of this omg 🤩
Edit: doesn't work on firefox, and don't use in production, only for testing stuff :)
TIL from Hussein Nasser that there's this new feature built into the browser, through which you can easily "lazy" load your images! It's as simple as just adding loading=lazy attribute in your <img> tags!
If ya don't know what lazy loading does, it just defers loading the image until it reaches a calculated distance from the viewport, as defined by the browser. The intent is to avoid the network and storage bandwidth needed to handle the image until it's reasonably certain that it will be needed. This generally improves the performance of the content in most typical use cases.
Redis x Next.js full stack app in making! It'll be a car database with instant full text search!
Making this with the help of fireship.io's article.
I think I'm starting to like redis, it's fast and fun to work with :redis: :)
Making a full stack search application using redis json and redis search!
And possibly use it in my url shortening service!
Working on my url shortening service!
Starting with Nextjs 12's new Edge functions and redis, but plan to go even further and try to make it distributed highly scalable with no collision guaranteed!PS. I don't know which domain to use, lmk if ya have a short url and can lend a subdomain xD
Making progress on my mobile first nextjs tailwind portfolio website! Making this website has been very rewarding and I think I really like using tailwind!
Today i just finished my navbar ✨
Here's my code in the dark submission (citd.vercel.app). tried to recreate hackclub.com/slack in 30 mins xD. It was really fun, didn't know I could still write vanilla html css, and speed coding is nice.
Wrote my first Arduino code on the nodemcu board i got as a secret santa gift! 🎅
Did some tweaks on my new nextjs personal website! CSS has been holding me back a lot, I'll try to learn more of it so that I can ship stuff faster!
New next website in the making!
Reading about threads and processes synchronization today for my operating systems and systems programming exam tomorrow!
Reading about how CERN has been using ceph to store data at petabyte scale (or more) without ever missing/corrupting even a single byte of data. Also learnt about tape storage, it's very interesting that something that I considered very old is now an integral part of cutting edge technology.
Working on a new blog post on different stages of software development, and what runtime, compile time, build time mean and respective errors. Next I'm gonna write a blog on Ahead of Time (AOT) compilation and Just In Time (JIT) compilation. It's gonna be really fun :)
you can checkout my previous blog posts on blog.aaryanporwal.com
Learnt a lot about Kubernetes, tried my hand on kubeadm, created my own highly available cluster (with one master - one worker architecture).
Gonna deploy a node.js webserver on it and try to benchmark it soon!
My Youtube playlist length calculator is complete (has CLI, will make a website later). Now back to building my amazon price tracker! 💪
I was tired of not being able to find any website that could calculate total length of a YouTube playlist, so I built one! Gonna ship it soon 🚢 ⭐
Learning Puppeteer and nodemailer by building an open source amazon price tracker that sends price alerts directly to your inbox 😉
Reading Operating systems: three easy pieces (ostep). I've started reading this as a complement to my lectures. Really good explanation!
Trying out webstorm! It's really amazing wowies
Hackin the hack club marathon! It's really fun and a really cool use of npx haha
My visual tests are now catching diffs that will 100% be missed by any e2e tests!
This diff is of bootstrap v4 to v5 migration changes which drops the form-group class, this is a breaking change and will break a lot of things on the internet! Except our ceph dashboard ;)
Somtimes things are not as complicated as you think! I've been banging my head trying to run cypress e2e tests (from docker), it didn't work in the first run, I thought I'm doing things wrong, googled stuff, found that I need to catch xvfb messages (X things) and pass it to my host. Spent two hours trying to read different scripts that run ceph cypress e2e tests and trying to pass down flags in there and hoping they'll run.
At the end (tl;dr) I figured things out, my mind came to right place and I found that the only bug was that cypress base url was using http instead of https. And I only need to run npx cypress open from the frontend directory. :stare:
So now I finally can run the e2e tests!!!! I'm almost in tears seeing things just work now! 💖 😭
Wrote some tests today! Cypress e2e and visual regression tests. It is kind of overwhelming for me at the moment, but let's see...
Been reading applitool's eyes cypress sdk, for my gsoc project. Visual testing is fun ngl <3
Worked on some open source stuff. Mostly jekyll and css things. We're using liquid lang with Jekyll, it is pretty intuitive declarative lang which gives sql vibes and is maintained by Shopify.
Self hosted vscode! I can host my projects really fast now :)
Getting started with PL/SQL for tomorrow's quiz!
Rewrote css and shaked the tree a bit to optimize and fix bugs. Felt great ❤️
Exploring GitHub explore 🚀 Reading quality code builds up your muscle memory, it's really fun just reading good quality code :)
I got invited to the Ceph organization!!!

Attending the CEPH onboarding session!!!!!!!!!
Trying out kaggle/ml stuff with fellow RCers! xD
First PR in CEPH, warming up for a great summer in GSoC :harder-flex:. I was so freaking scared in the beginning lol, nothing worked for months! I can't believe I learnt so much stuff in such short time 😌 :opensourceparrot:
Seriously though, I'm starting to hate coding...
Attending Google I/O, and wow gogole really knows their u/x game
YESS!!! I finally deployed my sad cats API (ScaaS) to my Oracle Cloud Instance's public IP, I had to learn about Ingress rules, IPTABLES and ufw. I've failed so many times trying to do this oof. But seriously if I had figured out how to do it early, I wouldn't be able to learn so much! (But seriously I should've read oracle cloud's docs at first lol)
YESSS Dockerized my ScaaS!!!!!
P.S Pair programming is OMG INCREDIBLE I SAVED 10s of hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It even has this cute lil in-built browser :linuxfox:
VS Code's SSH support is amazing, I'm obsessed! I was really missing this in my life, now I'm gonna ship cool stuff in seconds trust me
Containers! Katacode is such an amazing platform for learning cloud stuff wow!
Docker-compose is current mood. A lot of ceph-dev vibes here. The logs are not going away, I kinda need help.
Wheeee starting a blog soon!!!!
YESSSS I finally got it running! Learnt some stuff about lambda functions, but still not very sure what it is, but it's a really great thing xD
Yess!! Just got access to Open AI beta! Can't wait to make cool stuff with it :poggers:
Yeah been on sooo many zoom meetings this week (we don't use zoom for school), also I realized how much netflix I've been watching :angrycry: . I've been learning React again these days and brushing up on my ML theory!
Trying to solve this 👇
Continuing my rust journey :luggage:
Why did I get 150 Mbps plan this month?
hello again world!
Setting up K8 on my puny laptop was not that difficult thanks to minikube. Also exploring something new today i.e cloud native stuff
Reading "Ray Tracing in C++ in One Weekend" this weekend. 10/10 worth a read. I'll try to re-implement this book in rust after I'm done with this!
I learnt some stuff about compilers: lexers, parsers. I'll learn more about it tomorrow. Feeling weird, moving to a different city tomorrow. Here's a picture of a weird lemonade with curry leaves and soda that I liked for some reason.
Digging deeper into how broken web development is rn. What I've seen is that developers are taught that the only way to create an application is to use all these APIs and frameworks that have already solved a problem. The issue, I think is that all these frameworks and apis don't actually solve your problem. It has solved someone else's. So the so-called pieces don't really fit together well, and you end up needing a bunch of duct tape and glue to hold things together.

If someone tells you that CLI is better than GUI, ask them to use VBox CLI
This is my new Netflix!
I've been moving towards reading articles and watching talks in my free time rather than watching TV shows.
It's probably WebRTC and networking stuff that I'm slowly falling in love with
Also I found great articles and resources on a lot of networking stuff that goes on underneath all the APIs WebRTC uses, so I'm thinking of making a proper list out of it and pushing it to GitHub :thonk:
I really wanna see if this works
Getting started with WebRTC
Kinda like working with Node.js!
Okay wow, Swift is fun!
