Learnt MySQL
My Synology NAS ins standing on my desk and is barely used for some years now. So I decided to use it for my databases. Unfortunately, it's an old model so I cannot install MongoDB at the moment.

But Synology offers official packages for MariaDB and phpmyadmin. So I've learnt (the basics of) MySQL in the past ~2 days.

Built a feature
Today, the culmination of my work of 2 years was released to the public as Riot introduced it's initial iteration of two-factor authentication to all of its players.

This will serve hundreds of millions of players, and required me to flex so many muscles... data analysis, SQL, React, Node, even acted a bit like a producer and a tech lead in a few places.

Wild ride.
