Dev Diary Entry, 8th November 2021
How has another 3 months gone by with me barely posting anything? All my 2021 goals are looking very unrealistic (post x number of blog posts, read x number of books) so it’s easy to think 2021 has been “unsuccessful”. However, since the last UK lockdown ended in Spring, 2021 has been a vast improvement on 2020 for me personally, and content creation and consumption have been replaced by actually getting out and doing things in real life 🎉.
I’ve got into a nice rhythm of working in the office again now. It was a big readjustment at first, especially as I was only going in an average of once a week, which made it hard to get used to. However, a few months in and I now look forward to the change of scenery from the desk in my spare bedroom.
What I've been doing this week:
- Having a think about what I want Dev Diarys to be in the future. Maybe even getting round to the much-thought-about redesign of this and clairecodes
What I've been reading this week:
- Why debate non-text contrast of UI elements? - I knew about the recommended 4.5:1 colour contrast ratio for text, but this article taught me about the 3:1 contrast ratio required for other UI components.
- How to respond when a job interviewer says “Tell me about yourself” - After doing some recruitment in work recently, this is great advice and a question that also trips me up everytime.
