Learning Log, June 2022

A sketchbook with a sticker that says “Florida museum”. There are 4 felt-pen butterflies, and the words “butterfly rainforest”. Two butterflies are facing away from each other and are labeled “butt to butt”.

An explosion of green! A sketchbook page and some June-bearing strawberries in our garden that have mostly missed the boat on the whole “June” thing.

Netlify Launches

June was an absolutely jam-packed month! Mid-month I went to visit family around a certain 3-year-old’s birthday, then came back and launched two features with my team at Netlify (while also attending an offsite!). The lead-up to Unintentional Launch Week had me feeling a bit slammed, but it sure is a whole ton of fun shipping features that folks have been asking for! Maybe I should go for a hat-trick next time? 🏒

Seasonal Cleaning

After I finish a side project, I like to do a bit of seasonal cleaning on Github, i.e. fixing bugs and making small improvements to past personal projects.

This month I:

  • Added a record of older talks
  • Added an RSS feed to my snack review site. Also added a couple reviews, while I was at it.
  • Add a link to the existing RSS feed to my fiber crafts blog
  • Made little layout tweaks on various projects
  • Made various and sundry updates to Palindrome, my personal Eleventy starter template
