Many ask me how I started development, what training did I take and why did I start? Here is the article allowing you to discover everything.
- How it all began ?
- And the web in all this?
- What training did I follow?
- What am I capable of achieving today?
- How do I see my future in this area?
1. How did it all start?
Being a video game player and very curious, I inquired about how a video game worked. At that time I was playing Minecraft, so I discovered the existence of development and my first programming language: Java. So I wanted to add my personal touch and my creativity to the community. Therefore, I learned to use this language, the syntax and all that goes with it. So I installed my first development environment and started with very small projects.
2. And the web in all this?
It was much later that I became aware of the vastness of the web domain. As I got really interested in this new field,
These languages were much easier to learn because I had a good foundation in programming. I trained as much in
Front development as in
Front results in the interface of the application visible by a user and the
Back by the part invisible and inaccessible by a user.
3. What training did I take?
When I started, I took a course on OpenClassrooms to learn Java syntax.
In addition, I bought myself a big book, very big 400-page book called
Programming in Java. I acquired new functionalities such as the principles of object programming for example.
Today, I mostly learn on my own using the Internet and development discord servers.
Recently, I have been taking training on Udemy in particular to learn Go and Docker.
Finally, I also use Youtube to follow more or less technical tutorials.
4. What am I able to achieve today
Currently, I am able to do entire web applications, both the
Back and the
Front. As mobile and office applications are based on the same technologies,
I also know how to develop applications of this type. To see all my skills mastered, please visit my About page, in the Technical Skills section.
5. How do I see my future in this field?
I am currently asking myself a lot of questions about my future in development and my professional future. So I attend a lot of computer conferences and do a lot of research. Lately, I learned about an area that I knew only vaguely. It was a very great interest that immediately developed for this area because it meets all my expectations, and I think I will thrive in this area a lot!
Now you know everything about my beginning and my journey. I hope I have answered all of your questions and that you know how you can start your own journey! I am available for all your additional questions!
Here are various links of development discord servers with an active community:
In addition, I would like to thank _RealAlpha_ and Freeze (and all the others) who answered all my questions and with whom I share a great passion! I started the web efficiently thanks to Freeze, thanks to you 😉 They are very active on discord servers and will be able to help you with Java and Web development.
Thanks for reading to the end!
