I spent most of the day working on a client project which is getting close to the end, now. Today’s focus was implementing some fresh look and feel updates into a pretty much feature-finished Next JS / React web app.
I then travelled up to Nottingham and was lucky enough to hang out with some web pals who were speaking at, or supporting the New Adventures Conference. It was great to finally meet some people I really admire and normally only speak to on Slack or Twitter.
I’m face-deep in this client project, so it was head down all day for me. I got to work in Nottingham’s finest coffee shops which was great. My favourite was definitely 200 degrees.
In the evening, I caught up with more web pals, had a curry and played bowling. Luke then had us sat in his favourite hipster beer garden until about 1am in -2° C 🥶. Really, really good beer and chat, though.
I’m getting to the end of the project I’m currently on, so I spent most of the day having review calls and tightening up the look and feel, accessibility and functionality of the front-end of the web app. Hopefully, I’ll be able to share some of the tricks I’ve used once it goes live.
I also did the jobs I hate doing the most: scheduling and processing expenses. They’re a necessary evil, though.
On to next week which features a contract finishing and lots of assignment marking.
