Wolf X Machina: Year Three

Posted in Business on November 15, 2020

As is tradition every November 15th at Wolf X Machina, I wanted to share how the past year has gone in my business and what I'm looking forward to in the next year.

Highlights from the past year

Not going to lie, this year has definitely been a challenge. Challenging work and challenging schedules. But being forced to face those challenges has made me look at my business in a new light and it forced me to find ways to grow.

  1. I learned a ton of stuff. Especially in in 2sxc: form field groups, presentation settings, listing and details view apps, entity pickers for lists within lists. I really feel like I upped my game and I'm now building things that are even easier to work with
  2. I started using TailwindCSS and even bought Tailwind UI and started learning how to make more performant interfaces. I'm already using it to build a food delivery app
  3. I bought MixItUp for advanced sorting and filtering and already built two really cool modules with it
  4. I did some more design sessions with a super experienced web designer to supplement my design work
  5. I joined the DNN Awareness Group
  6. I joined the DNN Open Help Slack workspace
  7. I did a video on design-first development with DNN Dave
  8. I hired my first employee đŸ¤¯ They start tomorrow, the first day of my fourth year 

The Future

I have never been more excited for the future and what's to come.

  1. Offer more services in the way of low-code development
  2. Find ways to really improve the customer service and turnaround of work
  3. Improve Quality Assurance in-house 
  4. Diversify the offerings a bit and find new ways to provide service to clients
  5. Start building custom software in-house
  6. Explore more possibilities of where my company could go

Thank You

To my customers, my partners, my family, and my friends, my fellow DNN'ers - thank you. I wouldn't be where I'm at without all of you and I'm estatic about the year to come.

Much love, 
Aaron
