Let’s see…it’s been a busy week…

  1. New dev started this week (my first hire as team lead). She hit the ground running at Mach 1. She took it upon herself to do a full WCAG AA audit of our starter framework, while learning the ins and outs of it…while building a site. Total baller.
  2. First live-fire test of new ticketing system for support tasks. There’s some minor issues to iron out, but overall a success.
  3. Started planning a new project to build a custom project management system for our dev team. The solution we’re currently using doesn’t really work for us as well as it does design. If anybody has a suggestion to save me from myself, I’m all ears 😂.

I’m sure there’s things I’m forgetting, but between 1:1’s, meetings, and general dev team shenanigans, the week flew by and crawled at the same time.

I have finally bought my personal domain and a domain for my personal company/brand (Basionix), and I wrote two Nuget packages that will serve as a base for my future projects in .NET Basionix.BaseEntities and Basionix.BaseEntities.EntityFramew...

The funny thing is that I have never published anything about those packages anywhere, and now they have just above 360 downloads together (the other one I made back in 2019, which is called BeanSpitter has over 1700 downloads). My plan is to continue building libraries that could be put together to not only help me with future customer projects but also mine.

About the domains, It is so important to me because I have always wanted to do it (now I need to build my own website), I have postponed this for sooo long, and now I am finally doing it :)
