Lately, I’ve been spending as much free time as I can working on a side project. Which – yay! I went through a spell there of a few weeks where I didn’t have any kind of side project. Which felt… weird.

Learning New Tools

It’s been pretty good lately, on the coding front. At work, there’s been a push for us to start using Angular. And after a few sessions and tutorials, I’ve started to work on a personal/side project with Angular – building, practicing, and learning a lot in my off hours.

Code Day

Spent a lot of today working on a personal project (while at the same time, getting some practice in with AngularJS). While it wasn’t a flurry of productivity, I do feel good after having put in a pretty solid number of hours.
