Hi, my name is Alberto and this is my blog.
I come from Italy but I am currently living in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
In this blog I will talk about the path that I am taking to become a programmer and it will act as sort of a diary of my journey to landing a job.
My history with programming started in september 2016, while I was in New Zealand with my girlfriend who was then having to deal with a university exam involving HTML.
While helping her out I discovered a passion for programming and I soon realized that accounting (my previous job) was not meant for me.
And here I am, one year later, creating a blog to document the next steps that I will take to motivate myself to never give up and ,hopefully, motivate other people to join this journey.
I would currently rate my skills as follows:
- proficient in HTML/CSS
- almost proficient in Ruby on Rails
- proficient with Bootstrap 3/4 and good knowledge of Materialize framework
I attended a 2 months Ruby on Rails part-time bootcamp during which I worked on a small project with a team of two other developers for a month. It was challenging and fun.
What content I am going to post
Mostly, programming stuff. From diary-like posts to collection of resources that I found and I want to share.
Other than that, well… photos of my travel, I really love to take photos and even though I am not professional I took some nice shots here and there.
At the beginning of september I will start teaching english in a primary school, so maybe I will share some posts about that too, why not.
If you read all the way to the end of the page, congratulations and thank you for caring about my words, I hope that you will like the content of my blog, see you soon.
