re: Pet projects, the secret to keep yourself updated VIEW POST


It’s good to have projects that need both deeper work (coding new features, logic) and half-brain work (graphics, css etc). So you can work on it even when you’re not in the zone.

I‘m working half seriously on a web-based game, and it has all this, plus learning Elixir on the side. Also on this project I did unit-testing for the first time, which turns out to be very useful for picking up the work and remembering where you left off. Just write a failing test before you stop 😈

My other project is also good in
that regard, because updating is very quick with a simple CMS, and there‘s no JS to worry about. And once I have more time I can work on new features.
