I thought that week three was bad but things just went downhill since then. Well, that’s not entirely true. In week four of learning React, I did make some progress but in week five not so much because something interesting started happening at work. Let me explain.

Okay this week was definitely not my best or favourite one. Simply because I didn’t actual get to write any code to solidify what I was learning. For week three, we took a look at Redux which is state management tool. Now why might we want to manage state ?

Week two was fantastic, I really got to see what React is about outside of creating components. I got to learn about state, fetching data from external APIs and navigation. Now I have to clarify the last part as it wasn’t React web that I was working with during week two.

So 2019 wasn’t the best year for me when it comes to improving my skills outside of what my job currently needs. I failed to achieve my goal of learning React so in 2020, I’ve decided to make sure that gets done no matter what.

I’ve wanted to share more about my experience at Techzim for the longest time but always seemed to be too busy experiencing and not spending time documenting. Happy to finally take the time to let you in on what it has been like being a web developer at Techzim.

At this point in time, the HNG Internship is left with just a few weeks before it ends in the first week of July 2018. I’d say this is a good time to reflect on some of the lessons that I learned from taking part in it.

It’s been a month now since the HNG Internship officially kicked off and we’re now at the part of the internship where people really get to learn what real-world programming is like.

You know something about the web, it can awfully look similar whichever way you look because there are many themes that you can download and often if you get the best you’re also getting what your competition has.

Alright, maybe I should stop linking the intro of these posts to the difficulty of the stage. When we talked about stage 3 of the HNG Internship I said it puts the “C in challenging”, as true as that was, stage 4 nullifies that statement.
01 May 2018
Oh boy, I think I spoke too soon last time we talked when I said that stage 2 of the HNG Internship was challenging. Stage 3 puts the C in challenging by upping the difficulty level by a solid amount of points. So was it so bad?
25 April 2018
Right, been a minute since we spoke and last time you got to take a look at some cool designs that people created in stage 1 of the HNG Internship. Well, today we’ll be taking a look at what stages 2 had in store for people.

So recently, a friend pointed me in the direction of an interesting place. Out of curiosity, I decided to check it out and boy was I amazed. You know the feeling you get when you travel for the first time and you experience a different culture? Yeah, I had that all while sitting in my room on my laptop.

You’ve probably heard the saying a person without a plan is planning to fail right? I’m one of the people who has validated that statement time and again before whenever an interesting side project idea comes to mind.

Okay so I pretty much grew up with windows around me. Well, I don’t mean the windows that are on the walls of the house though i’ve seen my fair share of those. I mean Windows the operating system, you know Windows XP, Vista, 7 etc. Yeah that.

A website or web app is no good if it loses it’s data once the page has been refreshed. So how does one actually keep that data persisting without the need of an online database? Local storage might be the answer.

Hi, so I’ve decided to share some thoughts that have been on my mind the past couple of weeks. This isn’t anything new and some of you may have probably heard about it but here’s my take on the subject of figuring out who you are.

It all starts with
console.log(), however, that is not where it all ends. There is more to the console object than just logging as we will soon discover.
