Hello my dearest programming fellows,
To top off my self-taught knowledge I've joined the best bootcamp in the world: Tortuga Coders! Here you can learn full-stack web development in only 9 weeks while being on the beautiful island of Koh Samui, Thailand.
This post is the first one of a series which I'm writing while I'm working on my final project. Further information about the project will follow...
Nevertheless, on this post I'm going to explain why exactly I've chose to learn JS instead of any other programming language.
Ever since the final project started a few days ago (the personal project all students at Tortuga Coders work on for the last 3 weeks of the bootcamp), I decided to travel a little bit more through Thailand.
My first stop was Surat Thani Airport. You can only get there by taking the ferry to the Donsak Pier.
Since traveling means not always having access to Wi-Fi, you have to rely on your 4G connection; thankfully 4G is accessible from any spot in Thailand, no matter how forsaken that spot is. (Hey Germany, why does your mobile internet suck so bad compared to a developing country like Thailand?)
Most of the time while programming you're not going to use too much of your data traffic except for finding solutions for specific problems on StackOverflow, downloading NPM packages or pushing to GitHub.
Got absolutely no internet connection? Perfect moment to work on your backend + MongoDB. As seen in this picture, I'm not only working on my controllers and models but also setting up the routes and checking if the API endpoints are working using Postman. I use Ubuntu, by the way 🤘
Arriving in Chiang Mai I didn't want to waste any time. So I've decided to visit this awesome place. With some of their finest coffee specialities in my veins I went to a silent area and worked on my React components.
Those typical Thai pyramid-shaped pillows are extremely comfy to sit at when you don't have a good desk nearby.
Jokes aside. In this picture I was having a lot of fun experimenting with the rotation property in CSS. I also manage to customize my Reactstrap components.
Here I'm trying to figure out how to POST a document to my MongoDB collection without the Frontend, just by sending it via Postman...
Since I got stuck with that and wanted to at least stay productive, I'm sitting at this beautiful cafe right now, providing you with my first ever blog post (lul).
Aight' everyone out there! That's all for now.
