Created a fork in consulting/tallysticks

I'm going to create a UI Framework for scaling Framer prototypes

Having approached prototyping the Tallysticks application in an entirely functional manner, we've discussed that the codebase should become modularised in order to scale. I'm going to abstract out the solutions I'm building so they can be shared with the community.

I am going to change careers

I have a lot of very talented friends who work as backend and infrastructure engineers who have encouraged me to pursue Front-End as a specialism. I would like to give a user-facing 'voice' to their work. I'm going to start by working alongside product designers to translate their systems into high-fidelity prototypes using JavaScript and a tool called Framer.
