#1 — Intro

From nothing to something.

Hello readers. First of all, let me introduce myself. I’m Marcelus and I’ve been developing small automation solutions to local companies from my city for the past 2 decades. I’m self-taught on everything related to IT and I never stop learning new things. It’s kinda what I do. Ah, even English is self-taught so pardon me already if I make mistakes while I write this.

I’m not, by any means, a writer but I always wanted to contribute with my knowledge to other people… And by that I mean, at least I could tell them how I screwed up so they don’t do the same. I’m no expert on anything. I’m just a normal guy that likes to code and hardly makes any money of it :)

OK, introductions aside, let me explain what I want to do here. These days I went to see my accountant and he showed me this application his clients are using that was a rather simple finance management website and, since I was kinda in broke, he asked me why I don’t create something like that? Maybe he could even send a few customers my way. Well, I liked the idea and started researching a few days later.

Normally I’d just start coding, creating some UML, designing a few classes, etc… But I thought to myself: It’s 2019, man… Let’s create some sort of blog while you code.

And here we are…

Let’s see if we can turn this into a series!
