I spent most of my day building a mini-website:

It was once again interesting to see how using code I didn’t fully understand broke my flow and had me backtrack a few times until figuring my way around. I doubt that using something has even half as much learning effect as making something.
While taking a break, I also realized that I will now probably suspend creating small webapps and instead focus on learning to use python’s NLTK.
