Plans and projects for 2022
- I wanted to learn Express (servers)
- I wanted to build GTK+ apps
- I wanted to learn React to build mobile apps with React Native
- I wanted to create 3D games and prototypes using Three.js
So, did I accomplish these goals? Well, sorta. I didn’t do anything with GTK. Mostly because the docs suck, and for Node.js they are even worse. I might try Granite in the future. Who knows? But GTK and Linux deserve a whole post on their own.
I also got a bit distracted by Svelte, and I wrote a little app using Svelte instead of learning React as I planned. I still want to learn React because I like the idea to write iOS and Android apps using React Native. I recently saw this talk about integrating React Native with Phoenix Framework, which sounds cool.
I totally forgot Express to be honest. That may also illustrate how much I was actually interested in it.
But to end on a positive note: I’ve got a job at Qdentity since September 2021. I mentioned Phoenix Framework earlier in this post, and that is because that is what they use at Qdentity. So I’m learning Elixir and Phoenix now. Phoenix is a framework to build interactive websites and web apps in Elixir. You’ll hear me talk about it a lot more this year, so be prepared :)
Oh, I almost forgot: my plans for this year. I already mentioned Phoenix and Elixir, but I’m also still interested in React and React Native. Also cool: I’ve got a new app I’m working on. It’s called Nindo and you’re using it right now because I published this blog post via Nindo.
Happy new year everyone!
