My Current Progress

The book has 20 projects split across 11 chapters, and I fully intend on completing them all, but not necessarily in the order presented.

There may be many different reasons why I'd choose to tackle them out of order, such as financial restraints, the amount of time available to me, or simply being more interested in one project over another. Who knows?

In any case, this is why it is important I keep track of which projects I have completed because I'm exactly the sort of person that will forget what I've done.

Any projects which I've at least made a start on will feature links to their tag within the blog, and any which I consider complete will be marked with a tick (✔).
