Github Doesn't Lie!
My Steemit history is intertwined with my latest attempts at becoming a web application developer. I started Steemit in June 2017 and, as you can see from my Github contributions visualization, I also was doing a fair amount of learning about programming.
October and November were very difficult months for me. I'm glad to have gotten through them and I'm happy with how things have turned out... but it didn't make going through it any easier.
Back at it
As you can see, my Github contributions have started again. I'm working on a few projects, one for someone else and little learning exercises of my own.
I'm focusing on learning the Vue.js framework, but that comes with many other things, too. Right now I'm both going through a Laracasts series on Vue.js and I also found a Youtube series on Vue.js and FireStore for the database. I'm learning about FireStore because that's the database technology that my programming mentor's project is using.
I'm really learning a lot and I'm looking forward to being able to build apps that have persistent storage. Google's FireStore is really interesting and easy to get started with. I'll be working with it in my programming mentor's project and probably more than a few of my own learning projects.
Long term, I'm very interested in decentralized database technologies. I found one called Gun.js that looks amazing. I can't wait to try it out with one of my own learning projects soon.
It's a Struggle to Keep Momentum
I haven't posted here on Steemit in about a week and a half. I was in a car accident about that long ago. I'm fine. Walked away from it without a scratch or even a bruise! I'm so thankful. But it did take a bit of time to take care of scrapping the car and work out other details.
I hope to be back with consistency, but I do understand that the best way to keep going is to recognize when you've stopped and make the effort to get going again. I'm not going to just sit and watch life pass me by. These times are way too exciting for that!
