Greek Vase showing the six-headed hydra, used to demonstrate writer's vision of her noble fight against JavaScript: she will be tamed!

February 2015 action plan, now with more JavaScript.

What with the safe arrival of the finch and all that entails, I’ve been remiss in documenting just what I hope to achieve this year. So now, one month in to motherhood, whilst still professionally and intellectually ambitious, here is my plan.

Technical Projects

  1. Pursue the wily beast JavaScript and her purportedly easier cousins, Angular, Bootstrap and JQuery, via the Girl Develop It, Women Who Code and General Assembly Meetups. Document this progress in projects showcasing understanding of the concept. Voila a coding portfolio.
  2. Amazon Web Services – get it up and running so my Recycling Hack product works. This sounds simple, but isn’t.
  3. Get to grips with Terminal and use it to update my Github account. Like real techie people do.

It’s still in formation, but some likely projects include a responsive Resume page including a slideshow and finally nailing the Blue Project, which is pure whimsy but fun, for I love a bit of colour devotion.

Creative Projects

  1. The political pregnancy debate
  2. Finish Crap Jobs
  3. Tangled Up in Blue Project
  4. Finish The Finch
  5. Art History illumination

This might be woefully underwhelming but JavasScript alone has given me comical levels of neurosis so any progress with that would be a considerable achievement. JavaScript is an ongoing project, for this year and beyond, however the other projects are more contained and specific, which means I can enjoy the feeling of evolution whilst still waging the war of my ignorance, nobly, fearlessly fighting the 6 headed hydra of JavaScript.
