April 2017 Stats

Personal accomplishments and more for April 2017.


Education

Neo4j - A Graph Database

Someone asked for a code practical featuring Neo4j, and I got hooked on this new-to-me tech.

It caught me off guard, and sunk meometer's progress by a week.

First, I immediately saw how to use it in a handful of projects.

Second, it turned into a series of technical blog posts, with one the most popular last month.

SEO and PR

I had a 1h session with Jason from Publicity.ai and got some stellar insights into how to think re: SEO and PR.

Startup

I read @FAKEGRIMLOCK's BOOK OF AWESOME.

With the ideal-for-me combo of comedy + brevity, I cannot wait to release meometer.

RebootHQ

I took the first self-directed course, the 5 day reboot, from RebootHQ. I wrote posts on the positive experience.

I will take the Shadow Course in May.

I dig organic growth, so this looks good to me.
