Danke! Not quite - I should have some clarity after June 15 about the timeline, but will be planning to move as soon as I can procure the paperwork. I was intended to start June 1 before international travel halted, so "as soon as possible" :)

Started reading „Clean Code“ and by that a major refactoring of a Web App I’m working on.

Im currently in the middle of it and it would not even build right now, but when I am done, the tests can flow in. 👍

Almost through the book. Done with the first wave of refactorings. Their single purpose is to enable more and better test.
Almost 100 Unit Tests already (there are other thing on my plate as well) and still a long way to go.

Done with one assembly of 6... and the most basic one. But start at the bottom and build a solid fundament. Nevertheless, those were the easy tests.

Wrapping up my second blog post regarding my journey to becoming a Dev. With two kids I found it hard to sit down and have time to do anything for myself. So I count this as a big win lol.

My win was that I wrote my first post on dev.to yesterday. I recently launched my own blog and after that this is the first time I posted on dev.to. I must say received very good response from this best dev community.

Hmmm, it was a "frustratingly buggy" week. But the thought process that this frustration triggered made it worthwhile and I consider that the biggest win of the week. And it should keep me busy!

Any feedback welcome!
