Dev Diary Entry, 24th February 2021
We’ve got several more weeks of lockdown in the UK ahead of us and it sapped my enthusiasm for hobbies this week. My solution to these low moods? Exercise, but really quick sessions that I can easily fit into my day. There’s tonnes of short, free workouts available on YouTube which are all I need to release a few endorphins, or get me out of that mid-afternoon energy slump while working from home. I try a 10 minute (beginners) yoga workout, or a 5 minute arm routine, or even just 12 squats when I need a pick-me-up.
What I've been doing this week:
- I’m currently spending more time dithering about my choice of static site generator than I am actually building the side-project it’s for!
What I've been reading this week:
- Tips for Focus Styles - Since reading this post last week I’ve already referred back to it. An excellent guide to focus styles.
- Dropping Support For IE11 Is Progressive Enhancement - By building a non-JS version for your site, you can serve it to IE11 users, still providing them a usable experience. Yes!
What I've been watching this week:
- Pushing Send Episode 22 – Peter Cooper - I’m a long-time subscriber to Peter’s Cooper Press newsletters so I found this a fun listen about how it all began. The Pushing Send podcast is worth a subscribe too!
