Although I never wanted to become a Software engineer , but when I started to grasp the concepts of C I just became fond of it. At that moment I was like "*What the hell I was doing till this time in my life ? *" But a big hurdle was that , my classmates who earlier has computer science in their schools were just far superior than me . I thought I can never catch them and at that time that feeling was practical though. First semester was gone and new subjects came . But I just wanted to explore more in this new world .
Then a workshop on web development was organised in my college and fortunately that was free :)) (I'm fond of investing more in food rather than study). I attended that and observed one key point. More students were focusing on competitive programming and I knew my level in that and my branch was also EE which would not allow me to focus blindly in CP.And then came this long lockdown .
I didn't want to waste this time especially after seeing the motivational posts on facebook to utilize time . So ,I started to dive deeper in this world of web development.
As I told I'm not interested in investing money in study (very foolish of me) ,so at first I tried with the free videos of youtube to learn web dev. But my progress was as fast as weak turtle running in mud. I realized this will not work in this way . Then finally I made a decision to enroll in a professional course. I was looking for courses in Udemy and fortunately I enrolled in the course Full Web Development Course: Zero to Mastery and I never regret. What a guide Andrie is !!!!! just awesome . He not only taught in unquestionable way but also provided me with great online free resources . FreeCodeCamp was one of them in which you can learn and most importantly practice by solving problems. I learnt HTML5, CSS3 , JS, React.js and Redux for front-end and Node.js and express.js in backend. I learned PostgreSql in databases. That period , that small learning period of my life is what known as happy learning.
Now I have learnt many concepts of web development. But now also, what I know is a drop, what I don't know is an ocean. And this is the best thing about web development . You never stop learning . Everyday new technologies are coming and you won't be able to keep yourself away from that once you taste this blood of web development. My main motive of writing this is to make the readers realize that programming is something which you can learn from anywhere anytime and in anyway. There is no age barrier for that. With this thanks if you are still reading this , I know you have just read the most boring blog on dev . And that's why , a big round of applause to you from me :))_ Stay happy, stay safe :))
