Now

The big Rheinkirmes is underway here in Dusseldorf. It's a 10-day festival with rides, music, food and drinks. Every day from dawn to dusk.

France won the world cup! Allez les bleus!

Learning

A lot of my spare time is focused on learning React. I gobble up as much as I can from egghead.io and other readings online.

My React Native app is finally done and I'm just waiting for approval to release it on the Google Play Store. The app uses MobX State Tree and NativeBase components.

I've started another RN app, for fun. I can't wait to share the progress with you.

Open source

I've updated my Edge Theme! Yay! I am so excited to share this with the community! There's a ton of changes in there, and most importantly, Edge now supports VSCode and Alfred! VSCode has been something always on my mind and I never really got around to it. After reading Sarah Drasner's tutorial on Creating a VS Code theme, I bit the bullet! It's been an amazing experience developing the theme for this editor! Alfred came on a whim shortly after :)

Health

It's now become a major part of my life. Five days a week, Monday through Friday, early in the morning, I bike to the gym, workout and then bike back. In the evening, I do a short jog before bed. I feel fantastic! I highly recommend having a routing you follow. I'm still following the training plan from DevLifts.io.

I'm also on a new diet - Keto diet. I must say, the kilograms are dropping, and most importantly, I feel great about myself again. Working out and a diet, combined with daily meditation, have worked wonders for my wellbeing!

Reading

I started Stephen King's The Stand. About a quarter of the way through, and loving it! The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday and Stephen Hanselman is still how I start my day.

Work

With @frylondon, we're putting together the basis of a design system. It's a lot of work and it's really exciting. I shared an article about the 10 Principles of Good Product Design on Medium.

This is a now page that shows what I'm focused on right now. I aim to update it as things change.
