Professional goals for September. An MVP, some studying, infrastructure, and business administration.
Hopefully I'll get a minimum viable product out for my cryptocurrency job board. I'm using Vue and Ruby on Rails.
Completion metric: site deployed and ready for beta users.
2. Laravel Certification
I'm studying for https://certification.laravel.com/ and hoping to get it by the end of the month.
Completion metric: certification completed.
3. Learn Elixir
The Pragmatic Programmer recommends learning one new programming language every year. This year's for me is Elixir as well as its Phoenix framework.
Completion metric: build a tiny app with Phoenix.
4. Infrastructure Overhaul
I'm attempting to move from Laravel's products and Laravel-specific products like Laravel Forge, ChipperCI, and Envoyer to a mostly self-hosted infrastructure using Docker Swarm and Drone. Those products are lovely, but they're expensive and only work with Laravel.
Completion metric: nothing remaining on Forge, full CI/CD elsewhere.
5. Restart Business
I'd like to breathe life back into my small LLC I had to shut down when moving.
Completion metric: business registration submitted.
