2021 is almost over so time for a year end review.
For a year and 3/4 I have only been to virtual code meetups. I spent time at some outdoor events in the spring. They were not related to development but i did get to see people in person, None of my usually meet ups have returned to in person. The few local meet ups that have are not where I can attend. My child just got vaccinated before winter break.
Finished a python project for an improv show. Fun little side project. Take audience input and give an actor a randomized selection to pick from.
Did some React tutorials and made more CSS art for Halloween and Christmas.
I helped Virtual Coffee developer group by working on a Users guide to Virtual Coffee. This is a guide to help on board new members to the group. full write up
I worked on code challenges this year. I did exercises on Exercism ans a bit of Shortcut Foo.
In the spring I did the 30days of html, a humor at work challenge, and react query week.
In September 15 days of CSS
Some of the advent of CSS. And then there's Hackoberfest.
This is the second year I completed Hacktoberfest. I had five PRs accepted over three different open source maintainers. Most were documentation I and learned some markdown tricks.

still looking had a good 1st round right before winter break. HR said they had a few days left to work before they shut down. Said the second round would be in the new year.
After staying consistent blogging from fall 2020. I took a short blogging break for a while. It felt like I was blogging to keep a streak alive and wasn't adding much. If I had blogged more this recap would be easier. Blogging good to track progress.
I resumed in September I've blogged at least once a week since.
