Personal data can be super useful, but usually keeping track of anything it involves a lot of unused mobile apps and expensive trackers. What if you could just… code your own? Using Hoodie, an awesome front end framework with a noBackend philosophy, Jane created a personal data tracking app that that helps her track anything and everything. With the magic of PouchDB she can access all her data points in real time and write tests for continuous integration that notify her if she’s adulting properly or not (TAP… literally everything)

Of course, just because your tests fail doesn’t mean YOU are a failure. Jane will tell you how she uses this tool to track personal goals (meditate once a day, how often she drinks water) and how she’s feeling (how bad is her arm pain? How happy is she today?) to examine trends in her life. By the end of this talk you’ll be able to use or extend the same app for all the things you want to track and achieve.
