Hey Hackers! I’m Alex Cloudstar, and I’m the Front-End Developer at @Flow OS.
First of all, a huge thank you to the HackerNoon community and staff for nominating me for a 2021 Noonies award!
I’ve been nominated in the following categories, please do check out these award pages and vote:
At the moment at the job, I’m a Front-End Developer (React + Typescript), but on my personal projects, I’m building full-stack projects. When I was very young (5-6 years), I was fascinated by technology. So, a few years ago (~6 years) I found out about this path, programming. First 3 years, I was hiding from JS, but in 2019, I realized I had no chance to avoid it anymore. It’s my favorite language now.
I devote myself 200% to every project because, you know, something I create, I give it “life”.
About writing, to be honest, I’m focusing so much on build & learning new things I don’t really focus more on writing posts, but maybe I should.
Until 16 years old, I was just staying and playing on PC (league of legends mostly), but I realized I had to do something great, something big. So, in the night, I was staying on my phone, and I googled about programming (at that moment, I was a bad google searcher, today I think I can add this as a skill).
I tried to find all of the IT paths (design, programming, etc…).
At first, I started with Java, but.. at that time, it was pretty difficult to understand all of the concepts (Encapsulation, inheritance, how classes work, etc). So, I quit Java and start PHP, but at some point, it was the same with Java. Finally I found the FRONT-END development. My theory was:
It’s more easy to learn programing as a junior if you can visualize things.
I don’t think I’m worried about something particularly. This niche is evolving super fast anyway and you have to be always up-to-date.
Some of the money I’ll invest in actions (like Amazon, Apple, Google, Tesla, etc). And the rest of them I’ll invest in a product meant for the production.
At this moment, I’m getting better at Apollo, GraphQL, TypeORM, and PostgreSQL.
It’s doesn’t matter how hard it is. You can do this. You have to believe in yourself. Maybe the results will not come today, tomorrow, or maybe for the next 2 years. But someday, they’ll come.
Stop overthinking. Just do it!
