Happy weekend, everyone!

This week may have been the least productive one during my entire challenge. My 51-day streak also ended this week, and I took a two-day break. I just try not to be too hard on myself, because I had personal issues getting in the way. I can still somehow make up for it in the coming weeks.

Let's move on to my weekly retrospective!

Weekly Sprint Goals

  • fix the bugs in my company website.
  • deploy my company website after cleaning everything up.
  • after the website, learn Ghost so I can use it to build my personal blog.
  • continue to learn Next.js and Typescript by using concepts while I build my website or maybe just from reading documentations.
  • continue studying for Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) certification.
  • continue networking, but allocate less time to this (coding is more important).

Weekly Review

Here are the things I've managed to do:

  • fix remaining bugs in my company website.
  • deployed my company website's homepage.
  • learned about Ghost, particularly a Jamstack setup using Next.js frontend deployed on Vercel and Ghost on Heroku as my headless CMS.
  • discovered various features in Next.js and Vercel, such as zones, Image Optimization, blurDataURL, and monorepos.
  • continue my studies for PSM I (not by much).
  • expanded my network.

...I guess it wasn't really that bad?

Weekly Retrospective

Moving on, let's tackle what I've managed to do well, what my shortcomings are, and what I could do better next time.

What Went Great

  • I successfully deployed my business page.
  • learn plenty regarding Ghost.
  • enhanced my knowledge in Next.js and Vercel.
  • expanded my network a little bit more.

Some Mistakes I've Made

  • broke my coding streak and lost my momentum.
  • I pretty much neglected a lot of things that had little to nothing to do with my website.
  • learned almost nothing new about Typescript and Scrum this week.
  • got distracted at times and couldn't focus much.

Things I Could Improve On

  • learn a little bit even if it's not much, on bad days.
  • should probably do just a little bit more of activities related to my secondary goals.
  • prioritize tasks that are more likely to help me meet my weekly goals.
  • I should DEFINITELY install something that blocks me from checking certain sites at a specific time.
