What I’m Doing Now

Making progress on my meal planning app. I’m starting to get it wired up to Postgres and finally have it running on a “real” server at Linode so I can test it a bit. No UI yet, but I think I’m going to work on adding some unit tests at this point so I can setup some automated testing and switch over to a TDD style while the app is still very simple.

Lots of additional Kotlin work on an Android app. Lots of UI polish still to come, but the app’s main functionality is almost complete – so it’s more Android layout work than Kotlin at this point. I definitely prefer iOS’s interface builder to Android Studio’s equivalent, but it gets the job done.

Still going on Duolingo for learning Japanese. 27 day streak so far. My toddler even likes practicing Japanese with me in the evening. I’m on the final hiragana lesson. I’m trying to get to level 3 at each lesson before moving on to the next. I should be getting into learning words this week.

This was my last week in the office for my day job. We’re downsizing the office (not people, just the physical space) so nearly everyone will be remote with a small office for company gatherings occasionally. I’m very excited about this, but it’s going to be a huge adjustment for the team and the company. Next week will be the first week our whole team has been remote at the same time, so it’ll be an adventure.
