I've realised that that Content Summary Outline with urls to posts over the month might be useful to everyone so I've split the content Summary into two posts.
One with the links,
And one that includes the PDFs.
The pdf post is reserved Patreon supporters, but this links post can be public.
Creating this post took a little longer than normal because Patreon made some changes to their system which affected my automated creation of the post contents.
I recorded a new online course. This will be released through a third party and I'll announce it properly when the course is finalised and released.
It basically covers the WebDriver Support classes in more detail and is a good solid look at some of the synchronisation approaches and Page Object approaches that I learned a lot from.
Prepping for this, rather took my attention away from blogging, but I managed to keep up with my Patreon schedule and started mentoring on a 1-2-1 basis.
