Since I'm a development manager who used to be an individual contributor, I want to keep my coding skills fresh, so I'm working on a SpriteKit game for MacOS (yes, not iOS). I'm hoping by the end of 2019 to have at least basic game play implemented after I've spent all of 2018 studying Swift and game tutorials. Secondly, I'm developing a business idea in WebAPI implemented in .NET C#.
I've learned a few valuable lessons this year, mainly that if you want to get better at something you MUST devote precious time to it. Wishful thinking, buying books, and reading tutorials don't move the dial! You have to roll up your sleeves and CODE. Also - the way you approach learning something new might not be the right approach for you...research multiple sources and mediums to find what keeps you motivated and engaged.
