I m a self learnt Node JS Developer from India.

This story is a part of Hacker Noon's Meet the Writer series of interviews. The series is intended for tech professionals contributing the most insightful Hacker Noon stories to share more about their writing habits, ideas, and professional background (and maybe a hobby or two).

If you too would like to start contributing to Hacker Noon, you can do so here.

So let’s start! Tell us a bit about yourself. For example, name, profession, and personal interests.

This is me, Sankalp Swami, NodeJS Developer from India. I m 18 years old and Self Learning is my love and giving back to the community makes me feel better every day.

Interesting! What was your latest Hackernoon Top story about?

My latest Hackernoon story was about Git and Github.

If you wanna read it, it’s Git it Right or Git Gone.

Do you usually write on similar topics? If not, what do you usually write about?

Yeah I do write about Backend Development concepts and I do write on JavaScript, NodeJS, and in the future, I will even be writing on Docker & Kubernetes as well.

Great! What is your usual writing routine like (if you have one?)

Well! I have planned for to write at least 2 stories a week but that’s not working accordingly. Still I would like to start doing that.

Being a writer in tech can be a challenge. It’s not often our main role, but an addition to another one. What is the biggest challenge you have when it comes to writing?

The biggest challenge for me while writing is the question of whether people get my writing or not. It’s like, I don’t want my articles to be like a lengthy collaboration of words. If readers don’t get anything, what’s the point of writing, right?

What is the next thing you hope to achieve in your career?

My next goal is to start contributing to Open Source Projects, For which I’m really excited & will be doing very soon.

Wow, that’s admirable. Now, something more casual: What is your guilty pleasure of choice?

Well I guess, my guilty pleasure is getting that extra minute of sleep which results in an extra hour.

Do you have a non-tech-related hobby? If yes, what is it?

My non-tech hobby is reading books. I just love reading books and now for me it’s like a habit.

What can the Hacker Noon community expect to read from you next?

I am gearing up to write about Docker, Kubernetes, and of course Javascript, NodeJS. It will be really interesting.

Thanks for taking the time to join our “Meet the writer” series. It was a pleasure. Do you have any closing words?

I am really thankful to the Hackernoon team, as they have built this mega platform for developers like me where I can write and publish. It’s beautiful.
