After a few fits and starts, I finally merged my first PR at dutchie! While the PR was some simple refactoring and rearranging of files, it was a great way to get my feet wet and interact with the codebase.

I also may or may not (I did) introduce a bug that broke production for a minute. I guess that right of passage didn't take long!

New things I learned about include:
  • Tracking my progress with Jira
  • Documenting my thought process in the company wiki (Confluence)
  • Who to bug when I (inevitably) break something
  • How to make a hot-fix
  • Just how kind and supportive the entire engineering team at dutchie is 🥰
