Yet Another Recap
Ok, this recap will be short, I promise. About 1 year ago I started a blog to write my journey into becoming a professional web developer. Before that, I had experience doing mostly embedded C and some C# development, plus a bunch of personal projects involving websites, the last one being a web design agency that wasn’t very successful. Thing is, some journeys are long and others are short, and this one was shorter than expected (at least the relevant part). Last June I started working for Headspring in Houston, Texas as a Frontend Developer, which quickly turned into Full-Stack (ASP.NET MVC and Java), and since then I’ve been pretty much focused in catching up on C# and Java, and growing in many areas where I wasn’t very good, most notably the ability to estimate how long a task might take. Soft skills are as important as coding skills when working in large teams.
And, that’s mostly it for now. The journey continues, now focused in mastering JS and making it easier for others to use the latest and greatest while increasing productivity.
