The main purpose of this is to track my progress in development. When I gain more knowlegde, hopefully I will start writing some educational content too 📚
My Algorithm Journey
Soon, I will start the infamous 75 Algorithms created by a former facebook tech-lead. I will track my progress here & hopefully I will be able to solve them all some day.. Wish me luck!

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 somethingsimple, 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 tooltofocus 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! 🎉
