June Updates

Just a quick update on what's been happening during the last two months.

I took on a new side gig, which deprived me of virtually any free time. I've been polishing Coins: an app in which you can explore various cryptocurrencies and keep your wallets. I thought it was going to be an interesting experience that would teach me new skills, that I wouldn't be able to learn in my day job. I did learn a couple of things, but overall, I'm becoming more and more miserable because of the lack of free time. I'm going to cut down on the number of hours I spend working on Coins starting this week, which should give me some relief.

Other than Coins, I haven't done much. I finished a nice Flutter course on Udemy. I liked it very much, except the fact that some of the lessons were targeted at absolute beginners (e.g. explaining how for loops work or what OOP is).

I will start working on a simple Flutter app displaying a list of events for children. My wife has been running a newsletter putting those events there, but I think that an app could be much easier to use, since you'd be able to filter only those events that interest you instead of trying to pick them from a very long list. I want to use Flutter, because I can easily make an iOS version as well, and perhaps a Web version too.

Wish me luck with my future endeavors.
