2022 Year in Review

As we come to the end of 2022 it's time to look back at the year. This was a very productive year for me as I completed a few projects that I had on my list:

✅ Started a tech blog again with Playful Python. There are a gazillion sites that provide introductory content on python, but surprisingly few that give in-depth content for those who are familiar with the basics. Playful Python aims to fill this gap.

📊 We aimed to publish on average one article a week. At the moment we have 40 articles on the site in the 8 months since the site went live. In addition to that, 50+ posts on LinkedIn, 500+ tweets on twitter and videos on YouTube. Really happy with the content output this year.

😈 Shameless plug: If you are looking for next-level python content, go to Playful Python and subscribe to get notified by email when there is a new post on the site.

✅ FINALLY, learnt to touch type on the Colemak keyboard layout. I posted about this a few months ago and I'm happy to say that I've caught up to my typing speed with Qwerty. I exclusively use Colemak now. I've tried to learn it twice in previous years before giving up on it, so pretty thrilled to have gotten over the hump this time.

✅ Related to that, I also built my first DIY keyboard this year. I posted about this last week - a 42 key split corne keyboard.

✅ Completed two side projects. First, a long overdue migration of my personal blog from Blogger. It's now a static site generated using the Pelican framework and deployed on edge servers. Second, a site for managing certain online tournaments. This one uses Python's ASGI interface and deployed in a serverless environment.

👉🏾I'll be having articles on both the above projects on Playful Python early next year. If you are looking for information on how you can leverage the latest and greatest cloud options for deployment of your Python apps, then make sure to go to Playful Python and subscribe to get notified by email 😊

Thats a wrap for 2022. Happy New Year everyone. See you all next year! 🎉
