Progress Report - April 2019


I post a progress report showing what I did and how my products performed each month. Last month’s report can be seen here.

What did I do

I didn’t accurately track my time last month as I moved to a new time tracker, Clockify, because their API is free and easier to use.

Productive Hours in April Hours worked on side-projects in April

What was worked on

  • I redesigned my blog as you can see. 😃
  • I partnered with 5 EOS projects for my Learn EOS Development book.
  • Lots of business talk.

Platform Growth


Sessions went up a bit to 11,862 on my website.

Website Traffic

I again did not stick to my bi-weekly schedule of releasing a blog post. I was sick for a good chunk of the month. However, I could write one post about my blog redesign.

  1. Blog redesign with Gatsby and TailwindCSS


My twitter followers increased by 26 to 457.

Learn EOS Development Subscribers

I currently have 412 email subscribers for my book. (+68 😱 in last 30 days) I received tons of subscribers and book sales at the beginning of April, but I can already see that it slowed down drastically towards the end of the month. Let’s see how the book sales develop. Maybe I need to do another marketing push.

What’s next

Work on eosiac and start one of the EOS projects I have in mind.

eosiac (EOS Infrastructure-as-code) is an Infrastructure-as-code tool to manage EOS accounts for complex dapps. Dapps involve many accounts that require non-trivial setup (permissions, code, tokens, RAM, CPU, NET) often in multiple environments (mainnet, testnet, dev). eosiac automates the whole process by defining these environments in a declarative way through human-readable files that are easy to understand even for non-developers.
