Developer Diary: 2021 week 3

Welcome to Developer Diary, a weekly chat to share what a week as a developer is like, for me at least 😊 It was my birthday this week so I had a few days off work. Not much to do in lockdown birthdays but walks in the park and watching movies!

Developer Diary: 2021 week 1

Happy New Year! What a year 2020 was, eh? I found weeks would pass and it was hard to differentiate one from the next. So for 2020, I have decided to keep a diary, to keep track of things I have done and learned week to week. I find it easy, particularly in these "stay at home" times, to feel like I am not achieving much but I thought I'd write down and share what a week as a developer is like, for me at least 😊
