Your 2018 in Numbers

This is a great format for looking back on 2018:

In the comments, post a version of your year in numbers. It can be the numbers Ali used or any other measurable that could be fun to look at.

Remember, it's just for fun. Not a competition.

100% code coverage of unit test for every single line of code I wrote

Wow!

Was this enforced by the team/yourself/both?

I enforced it since 2016, I promise that to myself, and I'm happy to can stick to that. The point was, in the beginning, to show with an example that good unit test coverage (and have tests in general) pays off, relatively quickly. I can say there was some skepticism at the beginning of some colleagues, but now everybody takes it as a standard :)

I really like dev.to because the achievements of others inspire me but they make me anxious as well. This was actually a great way to think about what you have achieved this year.
Goals for 2019 would be to start blogging & contributing to open source!

I'm definitely more a consumer than contributor right now. ¯\(ツ)

Of course, the GitHub commits above don't include what I've done at work (those are privately stored elsewhere), so there's that.

Were you part of the Grow with Google / Udacity scholarship too? I was in the Mobile Web Specialist group and finished it in October.
