To solidify what I’ve learned so far in a Udemy course I’ve decided to write about a visualization of changes in GDP and life expectancy and since I am a bit of rebel I did couple of changes that weren’t initially in the assignment but sounded interesting.
Even though my day job requires me to write code and tests for the code, my main mode of operations are workflows. So when I started writing SlothCMS my starting point was the initial wizard where users set things up.
So it’s last week before the madness called Christmas ends. I am at the moment busy with job interviews, answering recruiters and planning interviews around my work day. It’s complicated especially when someone wants to talk to me over the phone for a bit longer unannounced.
