Developer Diary 2021: week 23

13/06/2021 developerDiary

A week off work...kept busy with appointments, virtual conference, family visits and Euro 2020.

What's been happening?

Usually at this time of year I am on Odense, Denmark for Umbraco Codegarden conference. This year I attended from my spareroom/ office in Glasgow! I enjoyed the opportunity to learn from and chat to the community. I was also very proud to again be renewed as Umbraco MVP!

While watching the conference pre-party, I also built some Lego flowers. Ideal when, like us, you have a cat who likes to eat any real flowers you bring in to the house!

After a few days of sitting at my computer, I enjoyed a weekend of seeing family & being outside a bit more (while we have sunshine in scotland!)

Learning πŸ‘©β€πŸ’»

On Thursday/ Friday I tuned in to a lot of the videos from Codegarden aswell as being the host of one of the "unconference" Q&A sessions. I will be catching up on those sessions I missed when they are available on YouTube.

I also spent some of my time this week getting to know more about .Net 6 & C#10 (due for release in November 2021), including minimal APIs.

Watching πŸ“Ί

Time off work for me means lots of TV!

Goals for next week:

  • Watch as much of the Euros as I can (it's been a long wait!)
  • Home workouts during one of the games every day.
  • Read a bit before bed since you are watching so much TV!
