It’s been five years since I first presented the idea of the Jamstack architecture at SmashingConf in San Francisco 2016, a talk inspired by many conversations with colleagues and friends in the industry. At that point, the idea of fundamentally decoupling the front-end web layer from the back-end business logic layer was only an early…Details
As a Fullstack Software Engineer, I have already walked the path of learning. I wanted to share some of my tips, what I have witnessed from others and what worked for them.Every number is different for each person:Anyone can sit and start learning to program, but each person will arrive at the destination based on the path they took and if they had any help on the way. I have seen people taking almost a year and some just about 4 months to become web developers and find their first job. People that took a long time to learn had to make a lot of try and error, and unfortunately, no one was there to guide them. So if you are starting in web or software development in general, don’t get discouraged because it’s taking you a long time to understand a topic. But use this as an opportunity to learn and perhaps try to find a mentor who walked that path and can guide you.Consistency is the key:If you have decided to become a web developer (or any software developer), give yourself a deadline and how many hours you can allocate a day to work toward that goal. Now, this part is very important, ready? Be honest with yourself. If you say 12 hours a day and your deadline is 6 months from now. Can you study every day for 12 hours consistently for 6 months? Well, first, you shouldn’t do that, so be reasonable and very critical of this part as you may discourage or burn yourself out halfway.Be patientLike for anything in life, you need to be patient about the process. 4 months or 1 year, and it will take time one way or the other. All you can do is prepare and have fun while doing it. There is nothing much to say about this one, but it is essential to point that out since many of us want to get to the destination fast and forget that it takes time, and you do need patience for this.These are my top 3 points that should help you predict how many hours you may need before getting that first job.

Since January I’ve been trying to get a new job, as a Front-End developer. Currently I work as a Database Analyst in Brazil and have been studying Front-End for about a year. Starting 2021 I finally felt ‘ready’ to start looking and applying to jobs, and I’ve been joining all sorts of tests that take multiple days to deliver, and I was rejected from all of them.Today I was rejected yet again, but I felt that I’ve delivered what was expected for a Junior position. Could someone please tell me what did I do that could be the reason why I was rejected?All I had to do was transfer the Figma mockup to a functional website, and I did it using Next.js. Take a look at the mockup that they’ve sent me and also the repository to the project.I’d really appreciate if someone pointed to me why this isn’t good enough for a Junior position and what I could do to make it better. I must get a new job soon because I’m forced to go to the office while Covid is still pretty strong in Brazil, but it’s been literally impossible. Please help me out.Figma mockupGithub repoDetails
Hi!Having worked with phpmyadmin/adminer for so long, I got frustrated with the cluttered interface and the slow workflow, so i decided to make an attempt my self. As the project grew and was a lot of fun to work on, I started using it on my work, which proved to make me really productive.You can instantly (from your keyboard) jump to any:databasetablecolumnspecific row (id, LIKE value, or exact value)specific results (group by)It also allows you to:I found that as a web developer, doing mainly maintenance/debugging work, most of the time your are looking for structure and/or data, not so much editing. That is the focus of this tool.I would appreciate some feedback, let me know what you think! There’s also a demo, try it out! https://selectfrom.app/Details
I made an open-source website to bring the world's oldest board game from before 2600 BC to the web! This project has taken me hundreds of hours in dev time as I've learnt and advanced from a complete novice in webdev to slightly capable!
