Keep on learning

Posted

Last week marked the culmination of nearly a year’s hard work: 2019’s Frontend NE conference. Although I stepped back from the meet-up in November last year, it was business as usual on the conference front, and what a conference it was!

In the days that followed the conference, I found myself in a weird state of exhaustion and rudderlessness. Although there were a few administrative bits and bobs still to do, there was a sudden gulf where the conference had been.

After the last conference, I still had the meet-up. In fact, this time last year we had to move meet-up venues, which proved very time consuming indeed.

But this time, I have different plans. Things I’ve been wanting to give my attention to for the longest time:

  • Get better at writing
  • Put a series of YouTube videos together
  • Start planning a talk to give at conferences next year
  • Really get to know JavaScript

Basically, a lot of learning!

It feels good that I’ve got more time to busy myself with those things I’ve been itching to do for so long. Frontend NE was a great learning experience, but a huge commitment; now I’ve freed up all that time, I’m ready to start learning again!

  1. It’s good to make mistakes

    As a designer and developer I’ve made countless mistakes, but that’s part of the reason I’m good at what I do.

  2. Focus appearance explained

    There’s some great stuff coming up in WCAG 2.2, but there’s one rule that’s particularly difficult to understand, so here it is in a bit more detail.
