2018 Resolutions

So like many, I too will make resolutions for 2018. I made myself accountable by joining a recent #DevDiscuss on Twitter.

So let’s break down the list:

  1. I’ve been active in OSS for the past couple of years, with most of my focus being on react-slingshot. I started contributing to this project as a way to learn React and at some point, to my surprise, I was asked to become a collaborator on the project. I really enjoy working on this project with my partners in crime.

In 2018, I will keep contributing to OSS including react-slingshot, but specifically I will contribute at least one PR to Visual Studio Code, TypeScript and the Brave Browser. These are all fantastic projects that I use everyday, so it just makes sense.

  1. Keep on blogging thanks to this post. 😉

  2. Start making code pens on codepen.io. I’ve never made any so yolo, here we go.

  3. Read everything I put in Pocket. This is a toughy, but let’s see how it goes.

  1. Functional-Light JavaScript is supposed to be a fantastic book. Kyle Simpson is a great teacher and has plenty of books out there, i.e. YDKJS. I’m looking forward to reading this one.

Now it’s time to add a reminder in Google Inbox for the end of the year to see if I’m all talk or not. 😉 💪 g
