Quentin - good job! Keep in mind the unspoken "obsolence trap" inherent in being a developer. You want to be keeping an eye on trends, new languages, frameworks, and movements (see JAMstack), and be prepared to retool yourself at least every 3 years. So that means, you need a "learning todo" on your list every single week.

And don't forget YouTube videos! For example, I'm typing this while listening to talks from yesterday's day 1 of the JAMstack conference in SF. ( )
