What I've Been Reading
During the christmas break of 2017 I set myself a goal. I wanted to design, develop and release an application on both iOS and Android before the end of the following year. Now fifteen months later (close enough!) I am super, super thrilled to have achieved that goal.
Over the last six months I have been experimenting with Google’s new mobile development platform, Flutter, on some side projects. I’m totally in love with it and pretty excited to start sharing some of what I have learned. If you’ve hit this page I’ll assume you already know the elevator pitch for Flutter, incase you don’t - here’s the short version.
While on holiday a couple of weeks ago I thought it would be a fun idea to go to a Laravel conference. I’m primarily a front end developer, but I figure that there would still be value in surrounding myself with a bunch of smart people, I think that assumption turned out to be correct! This is not going to be a technical post in the slightest - rather I am just going to take note of my core take aways, the things that really stuck with me after having a few weeks to let it all sink in.
About this time last year I released a little coffee blog called Beanhere. It was a fun little project that I used as an excuse to try and teach myself some new techniques, turns out that I did learn quite a lot. Now twelve months later I am going to start breaking down some of my more interesting takeaways in this little blog series - so here’s Beanhere hot tip number one.
Hello new friends, my name is Jacob Impson. I am a web developer and all-round fun dude from Perth, Western Australia. I’ve been a part of the developer community for a while now, but for some reason I’ve always been a passive observer, rather than an active participant. In person I am a total chatterbox - not sure why that never translated over to my digital persona. But that’s changing!
