My frontend learning journey!!
3 min read
It was august when all the high school and competitive exams where over . I started exploring stuffs and got started with the absolute basics in development . I went through course of html from codeacademy and October was already here . Developer community of my college had a awareness seminar on hacktoberfest, I attended the session literally with 10 of my friends as i was the one who forced them to attend lol . I became very motivated to contribute in it and get that tshirt ,even though it didn't happen i forced myself to do something i did my first pr request and also got my first proper merger and one merger in a blacklisted repo too. After this i did try to all increase my frontend skills and start developing frontend web pages using bootstrap . I watched a tut from daily's tuition's youtube channel and created my first nice website, i was kinda proud of it and bragged about it in lot of places . Tbh i did copy paste a lot of code and i was at times struggling to follow the tut . One of the major reason being it was bootstrap 4 and i was using bootstrap 5. There was a major part of jquery which i just skipped . After that i learned JS from deved's series. This was a good enough series to get started with JS . This was half way through December when i participated in my first hackathon with 4 of my college friends . I created the frontend part of it working day and night i also pitched it (lol) you can see it here. Even though according to me our project was impressive compared to otheres over there we didn't win any positions . One interesting thing was i tried to learn react basic one day before hackathon . It was a flop and then..... after hackathon ended i got started with svelte , the inspiration for svelte was from one of the videos of fireship ( I really enjoy his videos) I did try to make some functional projects but most of them fall apart while building them one of it was a place to access content of google classroom in more organized manner . I was half way through it but then i was bored especially when offline classes news became a common thing . I did create some more sites here and there for development clubs of my college recruitment , chetan car's is one of fav one's . I also tried out some data science course and tutorial ( didn't stick to it ) one of it -> . After half way through JAN i wanted to get started with something else , i choose to start with web 3 development , started with a random project from questbook have to be honest here , it was very very tough to understand what the heck was happening , error where bombarded anyhow with multiple trials i was able to run it calculator dapp's repo. I did 2 more one from buildspace which was ok but most importantly learned how to connect frontend and backend gif dapp website , then learned more technicals from a blog by 0xMuse and created a vartalap dapp , Unfortunately i have been in a stagnant position since then , i barely get time as i seem to spend most of it in clg,talking etc .March, April and May was neither interesting nor productive . They where mundane . Let's hope that i will be able to reverse the trend and get started with learning again (not only development). Thank you so much if you read the whole thing
