Looking back it all makes sense but at the time it was a lot of ‘I’ll do it once I’m done with this one thing.” and then I’d have a new one thing and the cycle would start all over again. The things are a bunch of courses on data science, drones and web development (because why not). There was also lots of travel and then to top it off my ideas for this project changed with every new experience.
But in the meantime, I built a thing with the new skills. I scraped various websites (massive shoutout to Ann Morgan), cleaned up the data, setup the database, and built a random book generator.
It’s nothing special really. Basically, when you press the orange ‘Travel’ button at the top you get a book from a different country.
