🎓 Now I'm learning
In my previous job at Marfeel I did not have the chance to learn and play with React as much as I would have liked. In my current job at Mainmatter I'm working on a project built in React.
It's good to learn by doing but when we cross that with delivering value in a certain amount of time is when some of the foundations can be left a part so that's why I've decided it's time to start learning the fundamentals and become a React expert.
The course I've chosen to do so is Epic React by Kent C Dodds.

Rust is here to stay. A lot of interesting projects are going on, the community is huge and loves it, and I'm excited to learn more about it.
Due to my interest in web development, software automation and the opportunity to learn and use Rust with Mainmatter, I decided to start doing my first steps with it.
The course I've chosen to do so is Exercism.io's Rust track.
If you are curious about my progress and submitted solutions to the exercises, you can see them here
👨🏽💻 Open Source and Personal Projects
Octokit is the official client that can be used to send requests to GitHub's REST API and queries to GitHub's GraphQL API.
Its ecosystem is organized in multiple repositories under GitHub, which includes a plugin system with different plugins you can plug to your Octokit instance.
During this month, I've been working on some maintenance tasks for Octokit repositories regarding its CI system. You can find details on my contributions here.
What's coming next?
You can find the next contributions or personal projects I'm planning in my GitHub Project Board
