Weekly Update: May 6 - 12, 2019
The last couple of weeks I’ve mentioned a new side project I’m working on here. I’m happy to inform you that I have a rough version of it live now. The site needs a ton of work from the design to the content creation still, but it’s live. The project is called Tesla2024 and it’s an experiment in investing. Starting in May 2019, I’m going to invest the money that could be spent on a new Tesla Model 3 on loan over the next 60 months in stocks with high growth potential. My thinking is that even in a rough market, the dollar-cost averaging should be keep me in a decent position. The site will exist to log the experiment. The content that’s online now includes an about page and the rules I’m opening the experiment with.
[Microsoft Build][msb] took place this week. I didn’t attend, but I tracked the news of what went down up in Redmond. There were a number of interesting sessions and announcements from the conference. Of the news I’ve seen, I’m most excited about .NET 5, the new Windows Terminal, and the 1.0 release of ML.NET.

I’m going to continue working on Tesla2024 this week. As I said above, I haven’t done any of the design work on it so far, it’s just the default Gatsby design right now. I’d like to lockdown a color scheme, get some assets, and make it look presentable. Beyond that, that I’ll continue to write more about the experiment and get it to where I can post updates.
Outside of Tesla2024, I’m going to try to watch more of the videos from Microsoft Build. I’ve watched a few of the presentations already, but I’ve barely scratched the surface.
