The whale
# 51

Hello Dear Readers,

I'm back from holidays and from hospital ... I was hospitalized last week, that's why you didn't receive a newsletter. I am at home now and I will be able to recover quietly.

Thirty days blocked at home it's the perfect time to finish my last side project made with my favorite CMS, Kirby.

The challenge was to see if I would be able to build an application to collect proposals and evaluate them inside the new Kirby panel. This project allows me to learn new concepts introduced in Kirby 3 like Models, Collections, Blueprint query, Virtual pages ... and I would say that these concepts bring a lot of flexibility. I would be able to finish a first beta version in September. Stay tune!

The next step now is to keep learning VueJS to be able to build some Kirby plugins.
