Wanted: Priority

Progress Report #6

Progress reports are Giving Jar’s way of celebrating Success, reflecting on Failure (and what was learned from it), giving Thanks, and taking a peek at what’s Up and Coming. Hopefully you will find these progress reports informative. As always, all feedback is welcome!


Here are the major wins in this progress report:

  1. Spotlighted Helping Women Period.
  2. Interviewed Firecracker Foundation.
  3. Wrote next spotlight.
  4. Provided local tech support for GitHub’s Jekyll 3 migration.


There are almost always setbacks when working on a project of any size. Here are the lessons learned from the last round of setbacks:

  1. Feeling overwhelmed should trigger an evaluation of priorities.
  2. Another big dive into spotlights is needed to free up room for writing software.
