New year new project

It is official: I am a developer, again!!!

Yup and I am very happy about it. The fist month back to code is almost over and I learned quite some stuff, 24 points to be exact cause I am keeping track. I should maybe mention some of them in another post. For now, this post is about something else, something I am wanting to pick up since some time but ALWAYS found a reason why not. Well, this time I should be out of why not reasons and just do it: work on a personal project.

Last year I started flirting with Golang, ah… just for the sake of it (another postponed thing). And I actually did some problem solving on a HackerRank to get started. Then, I also read a super interesting survey result, also from HackerRank, which talks about what employers want and what developers can do. That is where I got the idea to also go back do some Javascript (also because my project need at least a basic frontend).

Here I am, shaping up a project idea, more useful than fun, more for learning than being useful. But that is to be decided later what it will become.

Some things are certain:

Functionality

  • search & autocomplete
  • suggest a new entry
  • admin dashboard with CRUD actions
  • 2 types of users: admin and public
  • API (maybe) for further features like – statistics, graphics, similarity…

Stack

  • backend: Golang
  • frontend: Javascript

This is my commitment to see it through basically! I will also soon post my git repo when it is up. Oh oh and did i mention, the topic is: funding and women in STEM!
