What happened last week - Issue #4
This week: wasting time, design for Open Source, headless Statamic, maintaining an Open Source project and more.
What happened last week
It was a very fun week. I had the pleasure to do a webinar with Fran Agulto. I really learn a lot from him. Can't wait until we'll work on something together.
Also, I started working on my small side project. I'm trying to decide on the domain name right now.
And last, but not least - my wife is helping me a bit with a redesign of my blog and the branding.
