New beginnings : New frontiers


I have been pretty much a JavaScript person mostly for the past four (or is it 5?) years – well ever since I did my internship in 2012. No doubt I really like the language, the ecosystem and the potentials. It’s easy to get so engrossed in the ecosystem – there is never a dearth of things to learn or tools to try out. Quite intellectually stimulating and mind-broadening (provided you can spend the time to learn it well).

JavaScript still looks exciting especially with the upcoming changes (async, await, fetch, ES6). As they say however, the more things change the more they remain the same eh? Personally, I think it is time to check out what happens on the other side – the backend. Advocates say server-side development is ‘easier’ and more stable (yeah, they don’t have 1000 frameworks, build tools, task runners and patterns!).

So why the change? Simple answer: Growth. I want to try something new, expose myself to stimulating challenges and stretch myself. What’s the point of finding cozy places? The goal is to grow, expand and become better. And did I just get these thoughts? No, been on my mind for nearly a year now.

So no more JavaScript? Nope – I enjoy that too much and I still have to finish myangular implementation and descrambler. Nevertheless, I am planning to do more full stack work inshaaha Allaah – expect new topics covering micro-services, scaling huge services, rapid deployment in addition to the staples of programming languages, computer science theory and software engineering.

Let’s go!
