Moving past chaos

The last few months have been chaotic for me. They could’ve been better, but I managed to accidentally introduce confusion, making them chaotic.

Dashboard

A while ago, I wanted to build a data aggregation service that’d allow its users to fetch data from a set of data sources defined by them.

Working on Side Projects

Working on Side Projects can be really fun. But, you know what’s not fun and sucks? Not finishing the project and abandoning it (also, Global Warming).
