Week of June 29 - July 4

Launch

My latest project launched on Wednesday. This is my second year of building out a digital experience for OECD-OPSI Embracing Innovation in Government: Global Trends report. This year’s version is a bit different. Instead of one report, this year is five separate reports. The first one is focused on innovative responses to COVID-19.

Embracing Innovation in Government: Global Trends 2020

  • I started a new project at the end of the week. We are creating an online museum for Iridium. I am enjoying utilizing CSS Grid to build out the layouts on this site. I have also built out a page builder with Advanced Custom Fields that uses Flexible Content and Repeater fields.
  • I would like to write a post on some of the ways I have been using CSS Grid in solutions for projects that I have built recently.
  • It was nice to have a short week and a day off on Friday. I am ready for more of a break and have decided to take a week of PTO the week of July 13-17. We will finish up work on the Iridium project and launch it next week. Several other projects have finished up recently so this is a good time to take a break. I am looking forward to a mixture of getting some personal things done, spending time with my family, and enjoying some time reading, journaling, and taking a pause.
