Hey everyone,
How are you?
I spent my evenings this week trying to figure out a bug which was affecting Diversify Tech. I was so frustrated that I considered re-writing the whole application 😂.
I’m glad I didn’t go that route. Even though it took me a while to figure it out, the fix was simple. I had to change the column name of one of my tables. One of the plugins I was using doesn’t like it anymore; no idea why.
I’m now woefully behind on other tasks I needed to get done. I asked for advice on prioritization and I’ve got same great tips so far. If you have any tips, please do share!
Cheers,
-Veni

Introverts: Going to Meetups alone can be daunting. Send the organiser a message in advance, letting them know you are new and would appreciate help with introductions. That way they are looking out for you in advance and can introduce you to some new friends.
