    Competitive Programming: Project Euler

    If you're looking for non-project experience, I find Project Euler[1][2] to be a low stakes way of (re)learning a language.

    Advent of Code[3] is also coming up in about two weeks. It's another low-stakes way of engaging with a language.


    2. betrayed by "project", but it's just solving math problems with your language


  • WorkOS

    The modern API for authentication & user identity. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • microblog

    The microblogging application developed in my Flask Mega-Tutorial series. This version maps to the 2024 Edition of the tutorial.

    I can't speak highly enough of Miguel Grinberg's work with Python/Flask ( and the community he's created around it, for both beginners and advanced folks.

    Racing through his mega tutorial was a great refresher for me on the fundamentals, and it's easy to plug in computer vision & related libraries/extensions/packages.
