I took something that was a C# monolith and began breaking it out into microservices. Specifically, I'm using Azure Functions, which are new to me although the concept of serverless isn't, and I gotta say... I'm hooked. I love every bit of it. I've previously used the standard ol' SQL database, but I've been setting up my functions to use and trigger off of CosmosDB in Azure, and it's really fun to work with and makes me feel smarter than I am.

I learned the actual difference between block, inline, and inline-block elements. I always had an intuition about them but had never actually figured out the exact rules.

Made my first kinda-complex keyframe animation with CSS! Took a while to figure out switching between timing functions but I finally figured out a neat bounce effect. Could use a blog post maybe 👀
