I’m trying to get myself to better recognize work I’ve completed, so I wrote a process to look at my Trello board and send a Slack message to myself. This is why and how.
A look at DetroitHockey.Net’s 25th Season logo on the site’s 24th birthday.
On how I learn, how I code, and not sharing well with others.
