My Experience at Zuri First Internship

Alt Text

A Triumphant Journey ...

MEET FEMI OBADIMU.....

Hi I am Femi Obadimu . I Started my tech journey(front end Web Development) in my Secondary School days, though we didn't dive in deep we were only taught HTML, only the basic like the opening and closing tag, Headers, Anchors, Paragraph etc.. truly
I was not satisfied with what I was being taught, I had this zeal for technology , so I went online to know more about frontend web development. On seeing what CSS and JavaScript were capable of I was mind- blown, it grew me more interest. After the completion of secondary school, I went to a tech school where I learned frontend development. Last year Due to the Covid-19 lockdown I decided to learn a library related to JavaScript in order to move forward...
My interest was React Js. if you would ask me , the language was very easy, I understood them well , it's cooler than any programing language out there ...
React has been the best so far.
It's fast, light- weight, Scalable etc

I really enjoyed it

ABOUT ZURI INTERNSHIP

Zuri internship:is an engineering-as-a-service business that helps companies build remote teams quickly and cost-effectively. We have 1,000+ software engineers working as full-time, embedded members of development teams at over 200 leading tech companies.

Zuri internship got its first set of interns in 2018 and is now a multi-national corporation, with over 35,000 employees in more than 115 countries. Today, Cisco solutions are the networking foundations for service providers, small to medium businesses, and enterprise customers which include corporations, government agencies, utilities, and educational institutions.

I heard about Zuri from a friend but I didn't apply then due to my ongoing current internship at hash analytics. I must say HNGi8 is very challenging after hearing that interns will be evicted at every stage. now I have to be on top of my game if I want to make it to stage 10.

MY GOAL

My goal is to become an efficient Frontend Developer after the end of the internship, connect with more React Devs During the internship, and get to the last stage of the internship.

FROM ZERO TO HERO

Programming can be difficult if you don't have the right resources, people and mentor to guide through this. There's an African proverb that says

Consistency is the key behind every successful person

Most Developers can testify to this.The first time I wrote my code without any errors I leaped for joy, finally, the pain of spending hours on coding paid off, as time goes on I became a pro or a hero some will say in HTML and CSS.

CLOSING REMARK

Consistency is key, Don't let anyone deceive you, programming needs devotions you, without it you'll probably forget the syntax and semantic of the programming language you wish to learn. You can follow the rule I saw online, which is Eat, Sleep and Rest you do that every day, I assure you that one you'll be one step away from becoming a Hero Here are some free resources wish I know fully well can help you a lot on your journey to programming.

W3school: W3school is THE WORLD'S LARGEST WEB DEVELOPER SITE Launched, 1998. I highly recommend this for any upcoming developer there are tons of tutorials and exercises on any programming language you which to venture into..

Git & GitHub: Git is a free, open-source version control software. It was created by Linus Torvalds in 2005. This tool is a version control system that was initially developed to work with several developers on the Linux kernel...

Here is a Git and Github Crash Course by Brad Traversy. It is short and very easy to understand totally for beginning

HTML Crash Course: You can start with w3school at first, then go for video tutorials, for the video tutorials I'll be recommending Brad Traversy crash course on Youtube, it an hour video which summarizes what HTML is capable of. Brad Traversy is an amazing tutor, that guy knows a lot. Am pretty sure and confident that you'll like this video, be sure to thank me later

Figma: is a vector graphics editor and primarily web-based prototyping tool, with additional offline features enabled by desktop applications for macOS and Windows. The Figma Mirror companion apps for Android and iOS allow viewing Figma prototypes in real-time on mobile devices. The feature set of Figma focuses on use in user interface and user experience design, with an emphasis on real-time collaboration.

A fast and quick tutorial by freecodecamp which include Wireframe, Prototype, and Design on Figma.

I would also recommend you go through the figma channel on youtube it contains a lot of tutorials for beginners in Figma

A youtube Video by AJ & Smart also gives you a better understanding of the basics of Figma

Finally, You have to test yourself to know how far you've gone in any programming language you desire. There are videos on youtube that can give u a better understanding of how you can create your project..

Thanks for reading, For now, take care.
