Started a new side project
Started building a side project that will allow users to quickly and easily retrieve key nutritional information about food. The application is targeted at people with food intolerances or diseases such as IBS or Crohns. 

The application is going to initially be built as a SPA. However, the option to expand the scope of the project to involve an external API is there and would allow me to gain some practice knowledge of implementing OAuth in a real world environment.

Attended a talk
Attended a talk by Abby Guha, VP Product Marketing (Yubico) and Ludwig Ward, Product Manager (Yubico). 
The talk covered the current industry sentiment towards working from home, how cyber-crimes have drastically increased since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how we can use technologies like FIDO to mitigate the risk of account takeover while increasing the ease of account recovery.
