2017: Postmortem

2017: Postmortem

First Things First 2017 was a great year for me personally and professionally. At work, I migrated from the Enterprise Resource Planning team to the Software Development team.

I’d like to take some time now to reflect on this year’s journey and start thinking about the roadmap for 2018.

Let’s take care of that. </rant> Assumptions You’ve created new projects in IntelliJ Idea before. You’re somewhat familiar with how Gradle builds work.
