Choose your journey

In my first post, i decided to write about my journey in programming. For many people, programming is very hard, and you might think that you will never become a good programmer. Is there a magic formula to become a good programmer?

In the start of my career i worked with tech support, i discover the universe of hardware, how every component works, how the operational system is integrated with hardware, how use linux to do server backups, entering the server rooms (which were too cold kkkkk). Starting my carrer on infrastructure, gave me foundation to start programming, i grateful to Lin and Ezequiel to showing me Linux, which helped me a lot in programming.

Since 2017, i work with programming, i started with Java and its frameworks, on college i did Computer Enginnering, the programming part i learn on online courses, groups of study, i also participated in many initiatives that taught programming to help you get your first job as a programmer. I had few projects with frontend. Now i focus in become a fullstack.

On every step in my journey with programmer, i never found a magic formula, i was afraid too in the beginning, but i organized myself for my goal. Honestly, the best thing i ever did, was to create a roadmap (I wrote in the paper). First, i create with the following logic:

-> Hardware

  • S.O (Types of S.O)
  • RAM/DISK
  • Servers
  • HTTP/HTTPS/FTP/SSL/TLS/SSH
  • Virtual Machines
  • Load Balance .......(the list was endless) -> Software
  • Programming Logic
  • Programming Languages
  • Relational Databases
  • HTML/CSS
  • REST/SOAP .......(the list was endless)

I put so many things in the paper, things i did not need to look first but it worked. After, i discover roadmap.sh, brought more security where i should go.

If you is starting now, i recommend see the roadmap.sh, create your portfolio, join in programming communities, share your thoughts in the communities, i am sure that by organizing your studies and programming everyday the magic will happen!!
