Monthly reflection - September 2020
A reflection on my September 2020 of what I have done and achieved. Still working on my eBook, created Checka11y.css and started speaking at events...
All my articles are first published and hosted on my blog - but you can also find this article here on DEV.to. You may also be interested in my tweets on my Twitter profile and my monthly newsletter. 🔥
What did I do? 💻
Resumed writing my first eBook
I'm currently still working on my new eBook, Level-Up Your Career Today, trying to make it a really quality book with the help from some really outstanding pre-readers!
I wanted to create a CSS-only tool that would flag up accessibility concerns straight away as you're developing, and that's exactly what Checka11y.css does.
I also wanted a project where contributing is easy and beginner-friendly and encourages contributors to research and learn more about web accessibility.
So far, Checka11y has been a huge success!

Speaker at Mintbean's Quiz App Showdown Hackathon talking about accessibility
Accessibility at the Forefront of our Minds
I was offered the opportunity to be a speaker a Mintbean's Hackathon, which I couldn't refuse! Despite some technical difficulties at the start, it was a huge success and I didn't let my stammer get in the way! 💪
I will post the YouTube video here when Mintbean publish it
Back at work full-time 💼
After nearly 4 months being on furlough due to Coronavirus, I was brought back to work full-time on September 1st 2020.
Started going to the gym to help strengthen my heart, increase stamina, clear my mind and generally get fitter. Decided to get a gym membership, not bad for £20 a month.
My eBook got so many preorders and still counting (thank you for all your support!)
I have decided to permanently lower the price of my eBook, Level-Up Your Career Today.— Jack Domleo (@jackdomleo7) September 2, 2020
Pre-order: $10 rather than £14.99.
Price after release: $19 rather than £29.
This is so more people can afford the eBook since I care more about helping people:https://t.co/lkyyXkBfBx
