Progress Report - May 2020


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 May Hours worked on side-projects in May

I worked 63 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

  • I’ve been very busy with my main jobs. On the side, I mostly worked on VIGOR and on maintaining some of my old code repositories. I rewrote most of my projects that make use of Dfuse because I hit the free tier limit very quickly. I had an interesting chat about what counts as a document and the best way to minimize Dfuse costs for contracts with low volume. Maybe that’s worth a blog post on its own.
  • I didn’t start a new side project.
  • I kept toying around with Rust and built my first small app that scrapes a website and downloads something. The next useful project will be an EOSIO Vanity Key Generator. I already have this functionality as part of eosiac but Rust should be a lot faster than doing all of this in Node.js.

Platform Growth


Sessions went down to 6,473 on my website.

Website Traffic

I did not stick to my bi-weekly schedule of releasing a blog post. I was too busy with work. I managed to write only one blog post.

  1. Typing transformations in TypeScript


My twitter followers increased by 1 to 601.


Learn EOS Development

I sold 4 books last month.

What’s next

Same old.
