Did not much programming progress last week and no streams. But I did some infrastructure work to migrate fastdeploy from a very "how to do this with fastAPI"-style backend to a more "Architecture Patterns with Python"-style one. Maybe it's because of the research I did for our latest podcast episode about fastAPI or just mundane yak shaving, I don't know. And as always it's amusing/painful/sad to watch my confidence going from "ok, I've read the book, no big deal" to "omg, I've got no clue about anything" pretty quickly while trying to implement it. Doing things is quite different from reading a book and believing you have now a solid understanding and will be able to do things. I suspect it's even worse when you try to write a book/teach about things you thought you know well enough. Let's hope I never have to find out.

I'm probably not in the target audience, therefore I can't say anything about whether this is helpful for beginners or not, but I suspect it's not very helpful. The time for formats like that is just over.
