Week 25

Monday, June 19 to Sunday, June 25


It was a holiday.

I sent this very fun indoor boulder problem https://www.instagram.com/reel/CtsMml9PS_Y/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==

On Sunday, I also re-sent a local crimpy V9 for the fourth time. https://www.instagram.com/reel/Ctrj5Z3vH4M/. This was my 2nd time climbing outdoors since my ACL surgery and it felt absolutely amazing to redo this problem.



I had physical therapy. Did some fun plyometric exercises, like single leg hops and box jumps.

I setup bi-weekly 1:1s with two adjacent-teammates, Zach and Kendall, to keep in closer touch with them and look out for any platform-work opportunities or blind spots.


Had 1:1 with my manager Kaitlynne.

Converted this Wiki section of my site to no longer use a YAML file for navigation data, and instead rely on a tree data structure, derived directly from the git tree and blob data.

GET /repos/:owner/:repo/git/trees/:tree_sha returns a flat list of all the folders and files in a repository, but no contents.

The sha fields in the response can be used to fetch the contents, and in my case, the contents contain YAML frontmatter which has human-friendly text like title which I can use to provide a pretty label for navigation tree items.

GET /repos/:owner/:repo/git/blobs/:file_sha returns the contents of a file, base64 encoded, but when you include Accept: application/vnd.github.raw as a header, the response is returned as plaintext — Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8.

Note: See /wiki/cloud/aws/cloudfront for an additional caching layer on top of the GitHub API.


I had physical therapy. Did some more strength oriented exercises.

Got some nice shoutouts from my teammates on recent build-time optimization work for our flagship apps:

Removed legacy getInitialProps from dev-portal, in service of easier app router migration.

Came up with a nifty terminal AI zsh function:

Did more work on my personal website.

Did some wiki writing.
