Working Slower to Get There Faster

This post was originally published on August 17, 2020 on my blog.

Happy Monday morning, folks! I'm coming off of a wonderful, relaxing, slow weekend - where I tried to significantly limit my non-reading and non-connecting-with-loved-ones screen time. It felt good.

Now, diving in to this week. Some news! I'm hosting a webinar on Friday where I'll outline my personal five tips for starting and actually following through on any creative coding side project!

The webinar will be held on Friday, August 21 at 12pm (noon) EST - and there will be a replay sent out to those who sign up (just in case you can't make it right at that time).

You can sign up for the webinar here >>

Today I'll be doing some preparations for that webinar, as well as jumping back into React studying!

I'm taking it really slowly so that I'm able to allow things to truly sink in and make a bigger impact in my brain (rather than attempting to learn it and move on to the next thing as quickly as humanly possible...)

As of last week, I think it's working because now (after a long time of having just an ephemeral awareness of it), I'm really starting to wrap my head around how Webpack and Babel work together in the ecosystem of a web app (see last post).

What's on your plate this week? As always, I'd love to hear all about it!

P.S. Did you know I have a podcast with new episodes each Wednesday? Go listen right over here >>

P.P.S. Have a coding project you want to work on in a supportive environment of other creative coding women?
