Creating My Own Credentials

We live in a complex society that requires a credential as a proof of knowledge. This practice appears strongly blurry in my perspective, as it seems that people merely aim to acquire a degree.

Adaptability in a Fast-Changing Environment

In a rapidly evolving environment, it is not the strongest, but rather those with the greatest adaptability who rise to the top. For the last five years, I have been immersing myself in the world of technology, reaching a point where I must create my own credentials. I've previously touched on this in my first blog, where I mentioned that I would be writing about tech articles and sharing recent developments.

Crafting a Personal Roadmap

Creating my own credentials requires a carefully planned roadmap. Unlike traditional roadmaps that are designed to facilitate learning about a subject, mine will guide me closer to my current goals and the place I want to be.

This roadmap will encompass writing about various topics, including:

Frontend Development:

Angular: A powerful and widely-used framework. I'll be writing about it to explain its flexibility in building scalable web applications.

Next.js: Known for server-side rendering, Next.js allows for better SEO and performance. I'll cover its unique features and how it integrates with various other tools.

React: One of the most popular libraries for building user interfaces, React's component-based architecture is a must-explore topic, and I'll dive into its best practices and use cases.

TailwindCSS: A utility-first CSS framework that enhances design productivity. My writings will focus on how it enables rapid design changes and promotes maintainable CSS.

Typescript: Adding static type definitions to JavaScript, TypeScript ensures safer and more robust code. I'll highlight its advantages and the development efficiency it provides.

Backend Technologies:

Nestjs: A progressive Node.js framework that is versatile for building efficient applications. I'll discuss its modular structure and how it simplifies complex back-end development.

Nodejs: The backbone of many modern web applications, I'll explore how Node.js fosters scalable and performant back-end development.

Bun (after its release on September 7): As a new and promising technology, I'll review Bun upon its release, providing insights into its features and potential impact.

Software patterns: Understanding software design patterns is essential for clean and efficient code. I'll delve into commonly used patterns and their practical applications.

Systems & CI/CD Tools:

Docker: Containerization is a vital aspect of modern development, and I'll cover how Docker facilitates consistent and portable environments.

Github Actions: Automating workflows can save immense time, and Github Actions is at the forefront of this. I'll share how it can be customized for different project needs.

Jenkins: A widely used automation tool, Jenkins offers a range of plugins for build and deployment automation. I'll outline its capabilities and benefits.

AWS: As a leading cloud provider, AWS's tools and services are crucial for scalable applications. I'll detail its various components and how they integrate into development pipelines.

Blockchain:

Sharing the latest developments with tools using blockchain: I'll keep abreast of the latest tools and developments, sharing insights on how they can be applied and their implications for the future.

Beyond the Degree

By delving into all these different topics, I aim not only to share knowledge but also to demonstrate my expertise in a manner that transcends traditional college degrees. In a world where adaptability is paramount, creating my own credentials is an innovative approach to validating my skills and knowledge.
