My status this week is:

DONE: Got started, am doing my research
BLOCKERS: Discipline, Paralysis by Analysis.
GOALS: Still to get some pen and paper mock ups … I’m setting a hard deadline for Friday night.

I am currently working on… Research, reviewing my old site.
I have work to show at … Nothing to show, as well.

I know, I know, should not do that … but I have to publicly applaud myself: after weeks! of research I finally found out how to combine a Django Class Based FormView with a ListView (used FormMixin for that). That means I was able to combine a search field within a list to filter out items with certain properties. And because the search form is inside its own template I can reuse it now to my liking wherever I want! It was a long ride but I learned a ton about Django and especially about Python (inheritance and mixins) and I’m happy that I persisted.
