🤯Using Typescript for the first time in a production project
A new chapter: I join Immfly 🛫
At the end of the year, I started looking for a new chapter in my career. A different path to keep growing and trying different roles, and also new challenges to never stop learning.
Ship a brand new site during the pandemic 🚀
Apart from working remotely we also launched the new application for xceed.me during the lockdown.
Welcome to the remote life 🏠
Before Covid-19 I almost never worked remotely but now we had to learn how to keep working together as a fully distributed team.
Learning the in and outs of software development inside a team 🤯
I had always worked by myself, so working within a team and in a fast-paced tech company was a challenge. Agile methodology, pull request, code reviews, retrospective meetings, user stories, production, sprints, staging environment, DevOps, a new concept to learn every single week.
I get hired as a front-end developer at Xceed 🥳
At the beginning of the year, I started to apply for full-time front-end positions in Barcelona. Surprisingly for me after just a month I received my first offers and in April I started working.
Started the 6by6challenge ⚗️
This challenge consisted to design, develop, and deploy a web application each month for 6 months. It started in December but only lasted until march 2019 because I get hired!
Launched okstudio.tech ✨
If I wanted to be successful I needed a place to showcase what I could do and the work I had already done for others. This is why I rebrand my freelance work and launched a brand new site.
Launched my first PWA build with React (Esplaiada18) ⚛️🚀
Until this point, all the projects I developed were basic WordPress sites or simple experiments. This was my first product launch of a React app used by thousands of users.
Balancing career-development and daily-to-daily problems 💸
With my little experience, the few projects I received were not enough to support me economically so I started a new part-time job.
Discover and learn React ⚛️
I almost by accident came across Gatsby which lead me to React. The declarative nature and the component-based approach got my attention so I went back to learning mode.
WordPress as the entry point 💾
I started creating most of my freelance projects in WordPress because of its approachability and because it fitted well within the requirements of my clients.
First free-lance projects 🎉
The beginnings are always hard and being completely new to this sector finding clients wasn't easy. But I had the goal and vision clear so I kept pushing forward.
Quit my part-time job as a maths and physics teacher 👨🏫
At the end of the year, I quit my job to go all-in and pursue my dream to become a software engineer.
Developed an experimental PWA using Polymer 🧪
Learning by doing has always been my motto, and trying new technologies the best way to keep me motivated.
Created my Codecademy account 📖
Codecademy helped me, in the beginning, to learn the basics of web programming in a fun and engaging way.
Create my Github account 👨💻
Having an online presence was very important, if I wanted to become a developer I should be where the community was.
