You may have noticed that I’ve been putting off posting this. Well, it’s not really a sign of the outcome of our experiment, life just got in the way. Our 30 day learning sprints were actually quite successful. It’s pretty amazing what you can learn in 30 days.
What is AngularJS in 30 Days?
I gave myself two overall tasks. The first was to simply complete all the learning material I was able to gather. I’m happy to say that I did, in fact, complete that. The other was to put my newfound skills to use by giving a functional and cosmetic facelift to the website I host my Android Wear watch face downloads on. I did manage to come up with a design for it. Sadly, this is what life got in the way of and I never did get it built. Now that things have calmed down at home and work I only have myself to blame for not getting the web app built. I just have so many hobbies all vying for my attention that this has been put on the back burner. Rest assured, it will get built.
I wasn’t the only one who was successful in their endeavors either. This has led our boss to expand these sprints to the whole company. We now have a company wide ongoing education/training plan based around our initial sprint experiment. Every month, as individuals, we all have a new skill or certification we work towards that is work related. Additionally, we have a weekly group training session where the whole company takes a deep dive on a new subject.
