Hello! I’ve got some great articles and a lot of fun stuff for you this week!
Also a life update. I’m getting a new job! I announced it on Twitter last week! I’ll still be doing these weekly newsletters for you so no need to worry!
Lets get it.

I’ve been thinking about this quote this last week. I just left my previous job to start a new one later this month! I have been thinking about how to best use my time between jobs so that I can recharge and have the best start I can.
One key thing I am going to do is take some time for myself and my family. We will be traveling to visit family and having a vacation!
And second, to stay sharp I’m going to start a new side project with Jetpack Compose. I haven’t had a chance to really play with it since the #AndroidDevChallenge and I am really looking forwards to this. I’ll be posting about it on Twitter.
How do you like to relax and recharge?
