Don't Quit Your Day Job

It's good advice. Not quitting your job is a great way to retain much needed income to pay for life, and also to bring structure to the projects you work on. However, it also has the annoying side effect of getting in the way of side projects and ideas that you'd like to work on. I like my job, and I'm very thankful for the challenges and financial stability that it brings to my life. However, there are times where I need to really focus on what is happening there and due to sensible priorities, side projects such as building the statn tend to get put on hold during those times.

I've been focusing pretty heavily on building some internal development tools at work lately. It's a new area of work for me and I'm learning a lot of new skills, which is great from a personal development perspective, but its leaving me a bit short of both energy and time to work on statn stuff for now.

I'm approaching the end of a release, which means I should have some more time to start working on the first tutorial videos for statn setup and configuration soon. For now though, I'm embroiled in learning about VSCode extensions, and how to construct, test, document, and deploy them at an enterprise level. Everything is a little more complicated when doing it for a large company.
