Dev Diary Entry, 20th December 2019

It’s close to Christmas and so most job-hunting activities have stopped for the holidays. With a new baby, it’s been more festive for me this year than for the past decade combined and I’m not worrying about securing a role by a certain date, just doing stuff when I find the time. Merry Christmas!

  • What Does a Coder Do If They Can’t Type? - I didn’t know what the possibilities were if you couldn’t use your hands to type, so this post was fascinating and enlightening.
  • Optional Chaining in JavaScript - this is a cool language additional that isn’t well supported yet (MDN docs) but would save a lot of keystroke.
  • I set up an EC2 instance with AWS using a CloudFormation script to host a Wordpress website (with the help of my AWS expert husband). Quick and impressive, although the UI was busy and overwhelming for newbie.
