Hey gorgeous friend on the internet, just like DevEd will say :). Hope you’re doing great? It’s been a while since I wrote about my learning progress and I do not have a valid excuse because, come to think of it, I have completed a lot of seasonal movies between the last time I wrote an article and this present moment. A LOT :). I’m trying to get that momentum back though, so let's move.🚀
I have always been in 2 relationships
Then I fell in love ❤️
I spent a lot of time with PHP over the last 5 months, we shared moments of joy, confusion, and excitement and we got to know each other. Now, all I feel is the hunger to get to know more about PHP and Laravel because even if we see videos like “Is PHP dead is 20XX” on youtube at the beginning of every year, this technology keeps getting better.
My heart will go on
I recently got a job as a backend engineer at SeamlessHR which I am starting a few days from now and I am scared (the good kind) because the role is specific. The thing is, when I introduce myself as a backend engineer on Monday, there are some things everyone expects I should already know or be familiar with as a backend developer and that’s where the challenge (and learning opportunity) comes. This lack of broad knowledge on a particular stack is also one of the disadvantages of the “Full-stack” cap I have been wearing for almost 2 years.
Now, I will be spending a lot of time working with PHP, my new found love and trying everything I can to make sure we get to know each other better. The journey has started already since I’m currently taking the PHP Practitioner course on Laracasts, then I will move to Object-Oriented Programming which I’m very sure will give me a better understanding of how a lot of things work in Laravel. This is going to be an exciting journey 🎉 .
Will I still be in touch with my Ex?
It's a Wrap
Thanks so much for getting to the end :). Unlike me, If you are not searching for love or you enjoy working with a lot of technologies and stacks, that’s also cool. Just keep enjoying what you do.
Keep learning 💪🏿.
