2017 Week 21 Review

How the week went overall: It was okay.

One thing that did not go according to plan: I did not produce the final videos for section 2 or 3 for "Mastering Drupal 8 Development."

One thing that went well: I did complete the screen capture for sections 2 - 4. I also completed my monthly LinkedIn and Blog post this morning.

Plans for the coming week: I'm going to be at Texas Camp and I don't expect I'm going to get much done for the course. Maybe I can get some more screen capture completed.

How the week went overall: It was good.

One thing that did not go according to plan: I didn't complete as much screen capture as I had hoped.

One thing that went well: I mustered the energy and focus to at least get some screen capture.

Plans for the coming week: Get whatever screen capture completed that I can in the mornings and evenings. I think that maybe I will see about getting the final videos done for section one of "Mastering Drupal 8 Development." I don't know if I want to get into the voice over or not.

2017 Week 18 Review

I flew to San Antonio for a project on Sunday afternoon and I worked massive hours on the project all week long. I didn't put one minute into the course. I would have liked to have gotten more done on the project as well.

I'm flying back out to San Antonio tonight. Fortunately, I was able to package up an alpha release of my work and send it to the project lead. Let's see how much more I can bang out this week while I'm in Texas. Perhaps I'll aim for doing some screen capture for the course in the evenings in my hotel room.
