Upgrade dependencies and try to automate it with dependency bot
I am a senior engineer with 12+ years of experience in creating customer facing web-enabled applications and data visualization dashboards from idea to production with big data backends. I have proven experience with conceptualization, design, coding and implementation using current and evolving technologies.
As a web engineer, I have been responsible for designing and enhancing the user experience of many leading online applications of fortune 500 Companies.
It was a heavy lift and took so much time to get it working since our libraries and code was old. The aim was to make everything work as it is. Even if it seems simple, considering no feature change but that PR touched 246 files and almost 9000 lines of code. I consider that it was a success to make everything work.This has helped us remove many redundant packages and fix security vulnerabilities.
Configuring dependency bot and upgrading each package separately was a strategic step before upgrading webpack5 since finding what went wrong in some cases was a difficult thing to pinpoint.
Dependency bot created 77 PR’s and it helped a lot in upgrading our packages. Even though it created a difficult time for other developers with conflicts, it helped me a lot in the path to upgrade all packages. Thanks to @Milanv95, Soody Malem , @adamazad, @Berteotti and @diogo for your help in closing these PR’s.
It helps in splitting the package into different chunks and it will improve performance. It’s not much different now since our main chunk is very large. I have added web-pack bundle analyser to analyse the bundles and optimise it in future.
It was a nice experience to meet all of you in person and share some ideas and thoughts. The solidity workshop was a nice learning experience for me. Discussions with senior folks gave me more idea about DxDao, decentralisation and Swapr opportunities and road maps. Meeting more like minded people was a great experience.
I’ve already received the first half of the payment for 1 month.
Month 2: [19/07/2022 - 18/08/2022]
I have worked extra in web-pack 5 upgrade and is requesting 6hrs for 2 weeks and took 3 days vacation. So instead of 80 hrs I am requesting for 88hrs of work after reducing vacation hours.
2 weeks 6hrs = 60hrs
2 weeks 4hrs - 3 days vacation = 28 hrs
