April Status Update

Howdy y’all! Welcome to the April status update! This month, given the weeklong break from school, I’ve been working on expanding my front-end development skills. Specifically, I’ve been working on learning Flask as an alternative to Django.

This marks 4 months since I started working with Python in earnest with the Campmaster Constantine rewrite. I think it’s important for me to expand my knowledge beyond backend servers and non-networked desktop apps into frontend to really round out my skillset.

In other news, I have the AP Calculus AB exam coming up on 4 May. I’ve been studying a lot and I’m confident that I’ll get at least a 3. Higher would be preferred, but I also don’t want to get my hopes up.

That’s all for this month!
