I chaired the tech fortnightly. It is an open agenda; anyone can put a topic in and speak. I always forget how much work it is to co-ordinate the events. Finding people to talk and suggesting topics takes more time than I expect.
I started working on a prototype to explore data from a satisfaction survey. This involved putting together a database schema from a spreadsheet of data of denormalised and anonymised data. I inadvertently created quite a large chunk of what is a generic survey data design in the process.
I also attended a strategy workshop with other lead developers, head of tech and senior product managers. Thinking strategically is a skill in which I am not practiced. I still fall back to thinking of solutions and immediate implementation detail.
I spent some time tidying up my vale linting setup. Writing to vale’s exacting standard is hard!
