Continuing My Side Project & Learning React

Lately, I’ve been making steady progress on my side project, which I’m currently calling Digital Family Cookbook. I’m making it as a content management system for cooking recipes. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m writing it using Node.js, React, & GraphQL. It’s been quite a learning curve, but I’m definitely glad I’ve been working on it. The tools are pretty cool and easy-ish to use once you get used to the syntax and some of the idiosyncrasies of React and JSX.

Reading List 8/5 - 8/11

I’ve decided to start this back up. Some interesting thoughts about making the data social media has on us transferrable, DIY Phone Farms, and a new software development podcast I’ve found.

My Progress So Far

Two and a half months in, I figured I’d reflect on where things stand with regards towards working towards the goals I set for myself.
