I’ve never been one for New-Years resolutions, but I do like to make myself a list of items I’d like to accomplish over the next year. This rarely, if ever, centers around the typical weight-loss/exercise resolutions as I prefer to focus my goals around learning and growing professionally.
- Learn the CSS Grid Layout Module. While support is still pretty low, it’s going to come in handy sooner rather than later.
- Master Flexbox. Because it’s pretty darn cool, and with tools such as auto-prefixer, we can use it today.
- Create an open-source project to analyze Webpage Test data. I work with a lot of sites on a daily basis at work, and it would be really helpful to have a tool I can use to automatically pull data from WPT and get reports on how my sites are doing. Might as well make it open-source in the process.
- Learn Swift. I’ve only looked at the language from a very high level, and so far I find it rather pleasant. And with Swift being open-source, there’s a very good chance we’ll be able to use it on the web (server-side) before too long.
