So it’s been 2, no almost 3 crazy years now. Running 2 full on e-commerce/blog websites, freelancing and making ends meet with ups and downs since stopping doing my video editing jobs, though I confess I actually miss it.
So I looked into MVC models and decided to learn sail.js ( a MVC model framework for node.js) , this was fantastic, even though the framework’s community turned out to be dead, the documentation gave ALOT of information about how backend services work such as how servers process URL and other types of request.
I feel like I am at the level soon where I am considering a bootcamp, but I don’t think my skill is anywhere near where I want to be. So I have started on freecodecamp.com – they seem to so far have a fantastic course on front-end development so I am about 20% into that. I am really looking forwards to the challenges the course throws at me. I also enjoyed having to apply everything I learned from the start again, to make me more proficient.
I am really interested in the Meteor framework, React, and Backend as a Service (BAAS) as well, as I really want to understand the whole picture and be able to conceive and build application. I’m not looking to be a eloquent engineer, not yet anyways, but I intend to revisit more defined languages with strict protocol and IDE like Java in the future to really understand programming more.
I look forward to updating this blog with my journey in learning code, from a former professional video editor.
