Day 75 of 100 Days of Code & Scrum: Learning New Skills, Improving Workflow, and Looking For Work

Hello there, everyone!

Today, I planned out my Weekly Sprint Goals as well as updated my professional profiles on various platforms. I intend to focus more on learning new skills for this week, while working on my projects. Also, I will be actively looking for work, so I need to set up a workflow and templates to be able to do everything efficiently.

Anyway, let's move on to my daily report!

Yesterday

Just like I do every weekend, I did my 10th Weekly Sprint Review and Retrospective, in which I went over what I've managed to do well, what my shortcomings were, and what I could do better in the future.

Today

I set up my weekly Sprint Goals, which will focus on learning Next.js, updating my website and portfolio, and setting up a workflow that lets me look for work while continuing to build projects and polishing my skills.

Weekly Sprint Goals

Job Searching

  • make reusable templates for answering a job application questions.
  • create a template for cold outreach for looking for contract/subcontract work.
  • make reusable templates for cold e-mailing businesses to let me work for them (searching for clients).

Company Website

  • add more sections to other pages and make them more detailed:
    • the Services page could include specific sections for "Website Development," such as Frontend Web Development and Backend Web Development, what kind of technology stacks are used, and so on.
    • Digital advertising, for example, could include different types of services and techniques such as email marketing, social media marketing, and the likes.
    • Writing also could include different types of writing services, including articles, blogs, and etc.

Next.js

Scrum

  • continue to learn more about Scrum, through reading articles and watching videos.

Thank you for reading! Have a good day!
