A new beginning


Hi 👋.

This is the first post of a new blog, a new beginning.

I've been writing JavaScript since 2012, and I'm exhausted. I haven't stopped learning since then and seems like it's not enough. In the beginning, I thought that to be a good developer, I needed to know the latest libraries, the latest JavaScript features, and the latest X where X is TypeScript/Flow Type/Elm or any other typed language which compiles to JavaScript. I sometimes still think about learning Rust, ReScript and others... but I try to convince myself that is not needed and that it won't help me find better projects or better jobs.

So I have decided to try a different approach. I want to do products. I want to do things that people would like to use. Things that solve real-world problems.

And this is what this blog is about. I'm going to try to explain myself here the things I'm learning and the things I'm doing, and hopefully, it will be useful not just to me.
