Of my very few years of experience as a software engineer so far, I have learned some important lessons, skills from managers, colleagues, blogs, articles, and videos all over the internet and I feel so grateful for all the impact they've made on my life.
I have also had some challenges, and not so many milestones, regardless I still feel that there's something I could offer that would make a difference or add positive value to someone's life.
So in this blog, I will be sharing some of these experiences, knowledge, and the things I have learned in the past, present, and the future, that almost ruined or made me so as to encourage or help others seamlessly navigate it tomorrow on their own journey.
This post also serves as a guide for me to:
Commit to the values and tenets I have initially imagined and idealized for this blog.
Make my own learning and progress stick while helping others understand them by sharing.
Document and reference in the future, a lesson I've painstakingly passed through in the past.
Point to answers I have been occasionally asked by friends, colleagues, or people hoping to get started with programming.
Curate, summarise and redistribute gainfully helpful/useful information that has helped and improved my life, career, and journey so far.
In view of that, I will be focusing majorly on:
Beginner-friendly guides on getting started and understanding web development.
Short, Simple, and Easy to use, "copy/paste" and applicable useful articles of things I've implemented, studied, or used.
Sharing experiences, important lessons, and stories on what matters most in working, learning, and dealing with yourself and others in life, career and environment.
My experiences, lessons, and worldview in this blog would stem from that of a young Nigerian developer's standpoint and formation. The chronicles and acclimatization of what it is like or has been, to be and work as a programmer in Nigeria. The challenges, the fun, the yings, and yangs moments and their expectations.
I am hoping to give it my best, become consistent with it, deliver quality content and hopefully get people who would relate with me onboard.
My writing style would reflect my personality, character, and experience. It would be good, emotional, educative, fun, and not so filled with jargon. Sometimes long or short, as the spirit may lead😁, but bearing in mind that you, the reader, would gain some useful/helpful insights after going through them.
I hope you enjoy my articles and engage to share with me your own lessons and experiences as well.
I am so grateful to Hashnode for this wonderful opportunity and experience of having my own developer blog. The ease of setting it up was very awesome. I've been saying I will build my own developer blog for ages now but never really doing so. Thanks to them it's now a reality and I didn't even have to do all the work myself.
This helps me to just focus on creating value for others through my articles, while they do the hard work for me, by bringing it to users across the world who would benefit more from them.
You too can easily start your own developer blog today with ease on Hashnode. Click here to get started now. And finish setting up in less than 2 minutes.
Thank you Sandeep and the Hashnode team, now let's take Dev blogging to the moon.
"Hello World", here I come!😊
