I have a lot of business ideas in this head of mine. To bring many of these ideas to fruition I will either need to outsource work for web development or learn it myself. I’ve opted for the latter.
After doing some research, I landed on Ruby on Rails as the platform to learn that will help make my dreams come to reality. After a couple months of learning Ruby on Rails, I’ve decided to put it to the side in place of learning the MEAN stack and Meteor. In hindsight, I feel as if I should have spent more time at the beginning, trying to understand which language to learn. After reading lots of articles, it seems to me that the MEAN stack is currently the stack to learn.
Fortunately, Udemy was running a $10 deal which was great. I purchased a few courses and am excited to start learning. In what little free time I do have, I have decided I’m going to double down on learning the MEAN stack and Meteor.
The way I look at it, not only will this help me to make my business ideas come to life but it will help me to essentially, reinvent myself as a full stack web developer. That said, I actually do have experience in programming. Back in 2006, for a very short period of time, I worked full-time programming in VB.net. But my career took a different route into the realm of tech support.
That said, the time I spent programming was great and out of all the areas of IT that I’ve worked in, web development was always my favorite. Programming involves thinking logically, critically, and analytically in order to bring an idea to reality. Then when people are finally using your app, the feeling is great. You know that what you built is providing real value to people. It’s fulfilling.
That said, I have a lot of learning to do. So for the next month, I probably won’t post much here on WillISucceed. As you can imagine, taking time to create blog posts, takes away time from learning and right now, learning is the most important thing for me to do in order to, ultimately, reach my goals. But do stay in contact by adding my on Twitter.
