Big Changes!

Relocation, new job...


Whew, been a while since any update on here.

What I can say is that there has been a lot going on. Relocated back to Saskatoon, SK. Started orienting to a new nursing job. Bought our first house.

Any one who has ever moved a household knows how much work it has been. What I can say is that I have been slowly working through a couple of interesting coding things on the side when I have had some down time.

1. Semi-production shift tracker

I have a working version of the icu shift tracker, inputting a modified dataset that approximates the real-world dataset that might be used. It's really neat to see a lot of data, and how that may change how it is used or what needs to happen in its future development.

The goal is to have a version with data to present at CACCN Dynamics to show just what can be done with technology to reallocate nursing administrative tasks to help improve decision making for nurse allocation.

2. Free Code Camp

I started working on the projects to challenge the first certification for the course. They are fairly basic HTML/CSS/JS implementations of websites, forms, flexbox/grid layouts with basic responsiveness.

I've finished the first one -- a basic article layout with some responsive image sizing -- and started work on the second one -- a two-column form.

3. Advanced Web Developer Bootcamp on Udemy

Still working through the D3 sections. It's an interesting take on data visualization. Very handy little syntaxes, and I am looking forward to using it to learn how to work with dynamic SVG manipulations.


On a personal note, I am really enjoying the transition back to Saskatoon. Alberta has been great to us over the past 6 years, and don't really know what life would be like if we hadn't left, but I'm looking forward to the opportunites being back opens up for my family.
