Slowly trying to get back into making YT Shorts - I found out that VS @Code profiles now allow you to select a base language with some settings, snippets and extensions.

Looking at Micro.blog for cross-posting. If this works as expected, this post should be on all the socials that micro.blog enables cross posting on, including itself and my website.

Did you know that 76% of PyCon attendees were there for the first time.

I was so happy that Aseda asked what I was doing and kindly agreed to do a super quick interview about her first trip to PyCon US and how it compares to other events she's attended.

I took the last couple days of my time at @PyCon to interview some folks. They are all available on the @PyCommunity News YouTube channel. Today I want to highlight my conversation with the author of "Automate the Boring Stuff with Python" @alsweigart.

Sometimes finding THE solution isn't the answer because we don't always know what THE solution should be. Instead we should justify why a solution that we found is good enough until a better solution arrives...

We talked about this (kinda and also it's opposite) in Conduit Ep 42.

The best part fixing something is discovering a test you haven't written yet....

New Video 📹: I found this VS Code Extension to run tasks from the side bar. There was a minor issue with it but instead of trying something different, I found the fix and made a video (I also filed an issue and submitted a PR).

New Video 📹: I wanted to make a quick video showing how I add posts to micro.blog (Including this little post)

Another wild week of Render Engine Development. I wound up getting Pluggy working in render engine and now even have a plugin for pytailwindcss up and running and started working on another.

Another custom parser (probably the last one for now as I need to start working on other things).

Hello, Microblog Parser.

This is how I make these posts (Yes including this one!)

I've also added the README to the Extensions Section of the Render-Engine Discussions. I will hopefully be adding more of the content there.

Date: 16 Jan 2023 14:25 UTC-08:00

In today's mental health corner. I've been feeling some overwhelm as of late and wanted to share a video that helped me a bit. I'll be fine, Just need to defer/drop some things and get back into the groove (hopefully talks on bicep, azd, and devcontainers can help realign my focus).
