2016 To-Do List

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.

The List

  1. Learn the CSS Grid Layout Module. While support is still pretty low, it’s going to come in handy sooner rather than later.
  2. Master Flexbox. Because it’s pretty darn cool, and with tools such as auto-prefixer, we can use it today.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
