Here we are! It’s the end of another month. February feels like it has flown by. We saw the UK government announce the roadmap for ending lockdown. I went from my first run of 2021! Prince Philip is in hospital, and every day more people are getting the coronavirus vaccine. It’s been busy.
But the end of February means that I can review the goals I set at the end of January. So let’s jump right in and see how I got on:
- Blog daily – oooh, so close. But sadly, I did miss three days of posts. I will take that as a win, though, since the whole point of that target was to get back into blogging more regularly, and I have done that.
- Hit 300 followers on Twitter – YES! I exceeded my goal. When I’m writing this, I have over 320 followers, and I’ve had countless great conversations with other developers and people learning to code over the past month.
- Get to the end of my apprenticeship. Well, unfortunately, not. Not that I have been procrastinating. I didn’t account for the timeline. For example, while I finished the work to get through to the apprenticeship’s final stage, I wasn’t aware that there was then a ten-day wait before I could start my project.
Highlights of February
The main highlight for me had to be the TH.0 Hackathon. If you missed out on the posts, then you can check them out here: Day 1, Day 2, Awards. It was a massive boost to my confidence in taking part in that weekend, and it made me appreciate how far I have come as a developer.
What have I learned?
How to set up a Mongo database – that was a brand new area for me!
Also, I got an introduction to Blockchain. Not only did I get to work with a Blockchain specialist at the Hackathon and listen to another specialist host a talk during the weekend, but I’ve also been watching Next: Blockchain on Amazon Prime.
And with that, I say goodbye to the month that I can never spell without autocorrect. I’ll be back tomorrow with my goals for March and what I am looking forward to.
In the meantime, what were your highlights of February?
