Welcome to my personal blog 🗒
The main purpose of this is to track my progress in development, drawing & in life general. When I gain more knowlegde, hopefully I will start writing some educational content too 📚
Approximately a month ago I started a new project called needteam. Unfortunately I just couldn't find time to get myself to properly work on it because of my new job as a developer and upcoming exams.
After my exam this week I will make sure to work on needteam everyday & if something interesting happens I'll make sure to post it on here.
As the name explains it, needteam is a platform that connects people to work together on projects & create teams. The idea came up after a chat with a close friend of mine that helps me alot in regards to coding. There will be a ton of features that will make it easy to communicate with each other and find valuable people.
As of now I did the bare setup of the project. This project will probably take forever, since I'll try to implement things that I never did before. I hope this settles everything for now.
Have a wonderful day :)

Planning: Todoist 🗓
Planning is a very essential part of my daily routine.
It helps me to sort through my thoughts, plan which tasks I should do at the given day & upcoming days as well. I also like to save articles & technologies that I would like to read and/or learn, to become a better developer.
I wasn't looking for a tool that has a ton of functions because I don't want to get caught up with it & spend too much time with the tool. I needed something simple, with a good UI. That's why Todoist was a good fit for me. I just create tasks and sort them. That's it, pretty simple huh.
The main purpose of this tool for me is to plan my days in advance & stop worrying about stuff too much, since I will do it when the time comes 🙏

Productivity: Scoreboard 📈
About a week ago I created myself a so called score board where I will track all my doings related to development. This includes knowledge (articles, docs, videos), coding, UI & UX design, algorithms & data structures.
The goal is to do 5 tasks a day to reach my ultimate goal of become the best version of myself. So far it works great for me. It gives me additional motivation to be productive.
Typically my day consists of reading 2 articles related to development. Coding (at work & at home for my personal project) & designing (also for my personal project). If I have time I also learn some problem solving patterns for algorithms.
To sum up this post, I think score boards are a great tool to focus on what you want to achieve ultimately. It gives your journey as a developer or whatever you want to do, some consistency.
Have a great day 💫✨

1 Year Coding Anniversary 🎉 ✨ 🚀
Today is a pretty special day for me, since I started coding exactly one year ago. It all started with an udemy course and now here I am, constantly trying to improve & build full stack applications.
Let's see where this journey will take me & hopefully I will be able to achieve my dreams someday. Happy 1 year anniversary to myself! 🎉

needteam - Profile Page
As needteam continues to grow, I wanted to inform you all that the profile page is done with the functionality that needteam has as of now. Of course there will be many more features such as displaying the teams you are in, customizing your profile page etc.
In addition I also started working on the sidebar. It is visible and working but still rough on the edges. I am continuing now with the dashboard page. This one will probably take a while since there will be some big features on the dashboard such as statistics, diagrams, a personal calendar and so on.. Stay tuned! 🥸

needteam - First Insights
Two weeks ago I mentioned about a new project that I started called needteam. So here's a first sneak peak. I'm currently working on the whole authentication & user registration process. It is almost ready but there are a few things that need to be polished. This will be learning by doing & a lot of refactoring until it meets my expectations. After the completed registration the real fun part will begin.. so stay tuned 😎
See ya later!

Today I drew my cat called Narin. But unfortunately we needed to give her away a while ago .. 😭 I still miss her & the missing part will probably last forever. Nevertheless, here's my angel.

Let me present to you.. a yeti. Yeah that's right. I drew a yeti that another really talented guy that does youtube drew. That's some kind of start huh. Bye!

I just recently started drawing in my free time for a couple of reasons & with that being said, let's get straight to the point 🎨
The main reason why I started doing this is to learn how to draw professional illustrations for my projects in the long run. I think it is a cool skill to have. My main priority will always be programming tho.
Another thing that's great about this is that it is a very calming process. No tilting, no errors, just drawing.
Well, I hope this settles it! And as you can see I obviously wanted to share my journey here 🎉
