• Week 359

    18 November 2019

    Very busy right now, so I'll break a habit and do weeknotes as bullet points:

    • Longridge is going well. Lots more review work, getting a second course to 1.0, filling in some blanks, re-recording and re-editing fragments of screencasts, and getting a first draft of the third (and final) course done. That course introduces UX design through the lens of designing a small mobile app. It begins with a look at the materiality of the modern smartphone (although not, for my target learners, using quite that language), before going through to a first look at user journeys, paper prototyping, clickable mockups, and what design teams look like. Phew. Nearly there on the content delivery.
    • It looks like another short technical project, Willsneck, will slot in in the run up to Christmas, kicking off next week.
    • …and had a phonecall about another short piece of software development for a little further into the future. That still feels like it's about 40% likely, but it was a good call, so we'll see what happens there.

    Wearing a lot of hats right now, and doing a lot of different kinds of work. As such, there's not a huge amount of time for reflection, right now: the goal is delivery. That means keeping the foot - gently - on the gas pedal for a bit.
