Dev Diary Entry, 20th January 2021
I’m trying to decide whether to buy a protective case for my one month old MacBook Air. Although I try to be extra careful how I handle it, an accident is bound to happen soon, especially with a toddler around who likes throwing things. I used a plastic shell case with my last MacBook, but it didn’t fit completely snug and ended up with grit trapped in it that scratched the case! Maybe I should just be respectful of this very sophisticated piece of equipment, and use it at a desk instead of my lap on the sofa where it wouldn’t need so much protection.
What I've been doing this week:
- I’m determined to master SVG icons: to understand why they never look how I want them too! I’m learning a lot about viewBox this week and creating icons of my own in Figma and exporting them to practice.
What I've been reading this week:
- Parent accessibility - This was a fun read as a parent and a developer! It also contains a wonderful graphic explaining the difference between permanent, temporary and situational disabilities.
- No cookie for you - GitHub explains that they no longer have cookie banners because … they don’t use non-essential cookies! Sort of blew my mind.
What I've been watching this week:
- Figma in 5: Vectors I - I had to keep pausing to scribble down notes, I learnt so much from this video!
