Progress Report - December 2020

Category:

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

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

I worked 90 productive on side projects hours last month.

To make these progress reports a bit more interesting, from now on I’ll post my favourite song, TV show, and article I read last month.

What was worked on

Besides the usual work, I did a lot of programming challenges and CTFs to wind down.

  • I did Advent of Code 2020 to learn more Rust. Here are my Rust solutions up to day 11. Then I got bored because it’s mostly parsing the input and doing some easy transformations.
  • Instead, I solved the Damn Vulnerable Defi CTF challenges which was a lot of fun. The challenges were quite easy however I got to practice my solidity skills and learned about the awesome Hardhat Ethereum dev environment. The mainnet forking feature is just awesome.
  • I was hooked and then went on to do the first challenges of the old school Capture the Ether. Still need to finish these in January.
  • I added a new feature to my arbitrage bot to farm Defi Network’s lucky egg.

I did not stick to my bi-weekly schedule of releasing a blog post. I managed to write a single post only. It’s a very technical post but a very interesting one.
