An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.- The Pragmatic Programmer
I started my career off as a Python Developer, developing a user interface for a Baby Monitor for a startup with Raspberry Pi. Even though Kivy for Python had it’s merits and looked promising, something with the feedback loop always felt wrong.
I went researching into how other people created User Interfaces and fell in love with two specific ones. The Android Studio Workflow of dragging and dropping UI elements onto the screen was the first. I made an Android application for a competition entry task and loved how it worked. (I won the entry task but not the interview). It was not much after that I saw the user interface for web and I fell head over heels.
But then college was over soon, the company had to disband. I went on to work at Dexlock, a service based company with clients all over the world. This was a company just stepping into web development with years of experience on Mobile and Data based development and I could say I’m excited that the company has established itself in the web space too. React, that I picked up at Dexlock has turned out to be the biggest framework of our time. I have over this time worked for customer based clients like Upcomer and Yaytrade and also business focused data visualisaions and dashboards for clients like Katerra and IPA.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
