Blog-A-Day in June 2019

Hello! I'm on the Web Developer Relations team at Google. However, I'm on leave for the next little while—albeit while being a bit sleep-deprived, because the leave is due to a new baby. 👶

So, I have a naïve dream of being productive during this time. Though I'm sure folks who've experienced the early days of having kids are going to laugh at the idea of being able to focus on anything that looks like work.

Goal: Posts 🥅

With that in mind, rather than setting overly ambitious goals—I'm not specifically trying to write whole new projects, compilers, games etc—I've set myself a goal of sharing some knowledge once per day for all of June 2019.

These posts are going to be on a variety of topics: some will intersect with my actual job (I am on leave, but turns out I enjoy making the web better!), some will be technical but not about the web, and some might even just be waxing lyrical about an idea (with a technical bent, of course). 🤔💭
