Finally survived through another week, where a lot of work have piled up towards the end of the week, and to be carried over through the long weekend to next week. But life is good, learning and chugging away, so it’s fun.
Finally learning Git. It only takes courage to start learning it, and use it eventually. These are bags of tricks that one needs to learn to expand on the repertoire of software developing skills.
