Last time I wrote here on this page (which was 417 days ago, as told by my ‘date()’ function on excel), and I guess I abruptly stopped writing here because of some weird reason. I know I was in a mood to hibernate. But no more. I am back, and I am back for good :)
On this new year I made a strange commitment to myself that I will start coding again, and this time my purpose of writing the codes will absolutely different from what it used to be during college, or later when I was developing codes for someone else. This time around, my purpose to code is convince someone what I am thinking or planning to achieve with my ideas.
In past, I have had extremely bitter experiences with developers. And these bitter experiences turned into painful experiences when these guys didn’t help me move on my ideas (sometimes, the idea died because the developer couldn’t understand or I could not explain things properly). And with each passing month, I could see this coding thing as my prime bottleneck in the whole process. And hence I decided to end this mess and picked up coding again.
In past I have been a C/C++ developer, and I have thoroughly enjoyed writing codes which were mostly systems oriented, and hence it comes as an obvious handicap to me when I think about web development (which, during college days 2000-04, used to think as a superficial coding because there was only a superficial level of processing being done by the machine). However, as time passed, web development shifted gears and now as we see it, its a completely new world in itself. In last decade web has transformed itself into just like Google – from a simple search text box to Google glasses, the transformation has been mind blowing. And I salute all those guys who have been keeping it so dynamic that its changing everyday!
So, here I am, recently started learning Python + Django combination, and hope to start coding in next couple of days. And for those of you who are thinking that what purpose will it serve? Well, the purpose is simple, no more external developers until I myself have coded the MVP, the minimum viable product. I might take some time to become a pro and totally capable of writing some of the professional level codes, but then I won’t let this desire die. This all has to happen in year 2015.
Also, in year 2015, you will see me back on this blog because I am back to my job of learning while on job :) Keep reading folks. Thanks.
(I purposely avoided the word ‘resolution’ while writing about my coding desire, because the word ‘resolution’ has been turned into a sort of a passing fad which attains its peak only during the transition phase of the calendars and dies down naturally once the transition is complete.)
