Guess it's time to retrospect the last 12 months.
I will be talking about topics that I have worked on or learned. These are listed in no particular order.
I have learned Flask as it is the de facto framework for all the projects we have been building here. I couldn't help but notice how similar it was to express.js, which in fact helped me accelerating my learning.
Python is so straight forward and fun, sometimes I wonder why I left it in the first place.
Even though I have been building React applications for more than two years, This year, particularly the first half in Turbot I got an opportunity to build/contribute to a project which helped me understand the design patterns around a front-end application, code-splitting, authorization, authentication and much more.
This is something I am actually proud of.
Fortunately I was able to get a job that respects the work life balance everybody should have. Ironically given the fact that I had little difference between work and my life(my cat sighs 😾!), I chose to develop some nerd powers that I have been dreaming to have for a long time.I have always wanted to learn touch typing since I saw one of my ex-colleague writing code at 80wpm.
I never actually got time to practice/focus on it until after June, when I changed my job and joined the above mentioned company. The project was in its infancy and all I had to do is write code without looking down at my keyboard. I will admit, it was really tough to break an ancient practice of peeking and typing until I replaced my keyboard keycaps with blank ones.
This year was monumental for my personal vim experience.
My vim configuration got much matured. Coupling with touch-typing I almost felt like a Wizard I always wanted to be. I even wrote some posts on customizing vim for different purposes too.
Pretty good huh!
Honestly it was a pretty good year for me. A new job, new city and a bunch of cool stuff to learn!
Hope Loki approves this post.
He got me this year too.
