    We skipped a week but we are back with a long podcast for your ears. Keith starts off explaining his progress on Juniper’s Lab (new name, who dis). Keith spent a lot of effort on searching for cards with Phoenix LiveView and Alpine JS. A discussion followed around Keith’s launch plan around getting new users on board. Keith and Jamie came up with an exciting plan for pre-launch.


    Jamie starts his week off recapping why he has been anxious and depressed over the past few months (not really news to anyone). Jamie unveils (sounds more important than it is) his new “3 point plan” around what he is going to work on going forward.

    Keith starts off this weeks discussion around what he accomplished with Pokedecks. He started off putting the Pokémon data in the database and what was involved in modeling the data. Keith created an importer and discusses what was involved in getting the data correct in his app. This leads to a larger discussion around Ecto.


    Jamie starts off describing what he accomplished over the last few weeks which included a vacation he took with his family. His accomplishments included fixing some deployment issues and implementing the settings for sounds in the Chronic mobile app. He did not accomplish as much as he had hoped due to some stress he has been feeling over the past few weeks. We get into that and the future of Chronic.

    Keith starts off the conversation with some business, man. He talks about his adventures of incorporating his new company, Coder Journey, LLC. on a budget. Since he didn’t get much done, Keith tries and analyze why he was not very productive.


    Jamie had a similar week in terms of productivity with all the bad stuff going on in the world. It was hard for him to concentrate. However, he was able to build some stuff for Chronic but ran into some deployment issues around the way.


    They end the conversation this week chatting about how they are relaxing in these COVID-times.

    Keith starts us off this week discussing how he implemented auth in his Pokedecks application. He accomplished all of his goals over the last few weeks by implementing authorization as well as some design work using Tailwind UI.


    Jamie describes his week of building the Reverb service which builds up the sounds that Chronic will play when a timer is finished. He built it using events emitted to webhooks on the Reverb service. He then describes his upcoming efforts on the design side of Chronic as he is working with a design agency to build out the design bits.


    Keith and Jamie end the conversation talking about the actual filing for a business and what is involved in that as Keith looks to create an LLC for all his software business.

    Keith got some work done on Pokedecks these last few weeks. He reached his deployment goal but then upgraded some things with Elixir and that caused the deployment to break. He describes the deployment architecture using Kubernetes he implemented for Pokedecks. Get ready to get weird. There may be a new stack to talk about.


    Jamie talks about the work he has done on Chronic. He worked a lot of server side integrations and hopes to get Chronic to play a sound via an integration in the near future. Jamie attended a Pomodoro Technique class and he explained what it was like and what he learned.
