Discover One Amazing Creator Everyday #Creator09
Today’s story about a guy who loves building cool projects, a guy who is an avid learner, he always keeps learning and keep surprising us with amazing projects.
Rutik is a final year student of computer engineering. And currently doing an internship at a startup.
Q. What’s that one thing you want to achieve in 2021?
A. That’s tough to say. For me, the one goal for 2021 is to be a full-stack developer and get a full-time job at a good startup. And also build a SaaS product. Besides, I have lots of good ideas around side projects that I want to work on.
Q. What’s that one thing you are most curious about?
A. It’s everything related to the web. The more I am learning, the more I feel how little I know. And that makes me explore more.
Q. What’s something you learnt/realized recently that you wish you learnt/realized much earlier?
A. One thing I recently learned is that one can never be ready. You have to do it anyway. Like I used to keep saying to myself, I don’t know enough, once I learn some xyz stuff, I will be ready for the job. And I kept pushing it. But now even after getting into an internship, I feel the same. Every day I have to learn something new. It’s a continuous process of learning and growing.
Q. What’s the one mistake you have done and will advice others not to repeat that?
A. It would be choosing the wrong metrics. Reading one book and implementing it in your daily life would be more impactful than just reading 100+ books. Having a few folks who support you are more important than having a hundred thousand followers. Choose your values carefully.
Q. Why did you choose to become a creator? How do you see yourself differently than the rest?
A. I choose to become a creator because it’s fun. It’s something that I truly enjoy doing. I follow the mantra of learn-apply-share. And I don’t see myself as different from others. In the end, We all are creating stuff in our own ways.
Q. Which book you are reading these days? Which Genre excites you the most?
A. I am currently reading Soft skills by Jhon Sonmez. So far I can say it’s a must-read for all the developers and creators. I read both fiction and nonfiction. But reading people’s stories and journey excites me most.
Q. What do you love to do when not working? Any hobbies you want to share?
A. Besides coding, I like
- Reading fiction/non-fiction books,
- Writing/journaling, doing this since 2015,
- Illustrating, I am not good though I am learning.
- Poetry, music, filmmaking.
Basically, I enjoy everything that is artistic.
Q. What problem you are planning to solve next?
A. It’s not a specific problem I am trying to solve right now. But there are few products that I wish should exist, at least for me. So I am planning on building them.
And even if they exist, my goal is to make them better.
Q. What would you recommend to others who are looking to start their careers in the development world, how to go about it?
A. Build, Build and Build.
Your college degree, your certifications won’t help you to get a job, but your ability to ship products will. Learn and build. Write blogs, share your story. The more you will put yourself out there, the more you will create good opportunities. I have experienced this by myself.
Q. Suppose there is a big whiteboard in front of you. What’s the first line you would like to write?
A. Making mistakes is better than faking perfections.
