Now

Spring is finally showing signs in Dusseldorf, Germany. Yey!

Learning

A lot of my spare time is focused on learning React. I gobble up as much as I can from egghead.io.

My React Native app is finally done and I'm just waiting for approval to release it on the Google Play Store. The app uses MobX State Tree and NativeBase components.

My next steps are to unify the native and web app versions and have them share as much of the code as possible. I'm learning Lerna.js and making use of Yarn Workspaces in order to do this.

Open source

I've finished the brand new documentation website for frontwerk. It's live and available at frontwerk.org. I'm using Gatsby.js to build it and Netlify to host it. I am absolutely in love with both Gatsby and Netlify.

Reading

I've finished Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days by Jake Knapp, John Zeratsky and Branden Kowitz and I've started A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking.

Work

With @frylondon, I'm working on two great products.

Kaizen is an e-portfolio system that powers learners to track their progress throughout their career and collaborate with others through a proved regular and continual feedback system. It is a web application that runs on any device.

Haiku is an ever evolving content management system specifically designed for universities and professional bodies.

This is a now page that shows what I'm focused on right now. I aim to update it as things change.
