Week 38 Retrospective & Week 39 Outlook 2021
Week 38 Retrospective
Overall feel - last week was a grind. Despite that all my projects are green, SJSL went well on Sunday and not a complete disaster, the week in totality felt like a drag. A few negatives outweighed the positives, hopefully I can flip the script in week 39.
- Surgery - tough week to focus when one of your children needs surgery. It was downgraded, prognosis was positive, but it still threw me off to start the week.
- Project assumption (I assumed ownership for the project) when key personnel are rolled off. My partner at the client, with me for over a year, had to roll off due to his contract expiring.
- Dependency - integration blues when systems out of our control are failing. 500s on major service calls, made development and testing untenable. Need to explain to QA that the errors are integration.
- Injury - Haglund’s Deformity and Chronic Achilles Tendonitis - barely walking, shooting pain on dorsiflexion of my right foot.
- Attended the Snowflake Financial Services Data Summit - Americas. This was interesting, FinTech knowledge is on my professional learning goals.
- Roll20 MarkUn2 Something fun to do, I got back into D&D with a Cleric who thinks all Mages are possessed and need to be exorcised.
