What New Skills or Accomplishments Have You Achieved in the Past Year?

Reflecting on the past year, what new skills or accomplishments have you achieved? These can be professional achievements, like learning a new programming language, building a project from scratch, or contributing to an open-source project? Or maybe they were more personal in nature, like running a marathon, making it to the end of Gravity's Rainbow, learning to knit.

Whatever you've achieved: KUDOS! Take a moment to celebrate with us by sharing your experiences and how you achieved your goals.

I never understood what rebasing is until I was forced to rebase patch, then I got to experience it

HTML and CSS feel like my primary accomplishments so far. I’m pretty sure I understand JavaScript well enough, but I’m only starting to know how to use it within the UI.
