Zero to Hero Weekly | Issue 7 — Who Else Journals Daily?

Do you keep a journal? If not, you should. Your journal also helps to start your day with a set of probing questions. Here are the five questions I ask myself every single day and how those questions change and shape my life…

Welcome to the seventh issue of Zero to Hero Weekly.

This week, I was busy refactoring a tiered enterprise Java Spring project. It consumed more time that I anticipated. Can I say I’m a JavaSpring developer now 😀 (instead of “JavaScript”—get it, get it?)—okay, lousy dad pun. But still, I had to shift my schedule to adapt to tackling with that beast, which consumed a lot of my time and energy.

The good part: I learned a heck lot of Spring Cloud and Spring Security internals, more than I’d like to know, actually. My verdict is: Although Java has moved a long way since J2EE, and with the Spring Framework, it’s on the right path; yet I still do think it is heavy and verbose.

The Spring Framework is still worth learning if you want to shoot flies using rocket launchers 😜—kidding, or maybe not. Anyhoo try it yourself and tell me how your learning experience went.

What’s New on Zero to Hero 👩‍🍳

This week, I mainly did infrastructure and plumbing work, such as creating container images and ensuring that FizzBuzz Pro microservices are at least answering to health and liveness endpoints.

Creating a go Docker image.
Creating a go Docker image.

I live-streamed my work, and if you are a premium Zero to Hero subscriber, you can watch them on this page under the Live Streams tag. That’s the second-best thing to watching them live on Twitch.

I don’t have a definite schedule. Yet, since I work during the day, I’ll mostly be stream at nights (pacific time)—stay tuned.

I stream every couple of days; however, it also depends on my energy levels, and the programs that I might have with family and friends.

The best way to get notified as soon as I’m online is to hop on the channel and follow me on Twitch.

Other than the live streams, there’s not much visible progress, but many cool things are brewing behind-the-scenes—stay tuned.
