Summary

After putting together this quarterly review, I realise how much content I am consuming. I am definitely not recording my time tracking accurately, as there is a huge amount of podcasts for the quarter that does not line up with the time tracked so far. I will look for a better way to capture this time - maybe through the use of a podcast player API that can integrate into the logs. Regardless, a huge three months of learning which I will focus on applying to current and upcoming projects.
