Unemployed Blog 1

While the title says number one this is the second Monday of quitting my job. Let's go over the reasons I quit my job first 1. Restrictive infrastructure: While the company employed a hundred people the state of the infrastructure was never that great. Half the days internet would not work and the other days only ethernet would work. 2. Limited opportunity to learn: While there were people in the company who had years of experience working in the software industry. Most of them had nothing to offer as far as learning goes. This combined with the menial financial compensation meant it was inevitable for me to quit sooner rather than later.

Let's talk about what I've been upto after I quit my job obviously excluding applying to new jobs. I've been trying to get into DevOps more, not because I want to pursue a career in DevOps but more because of the fact that it's useful knowledge to have, especially when you are working as a web developer. And it is still interesting. I started working on a 2019 rework for my website pranavnachanekar.com, it's been going along great so far. This also gave me an opportunity to work on my frontend skills. I've also been toying around with flutter, but mobile developemnt doens't really seem like my thing. I'm also trying to learn a systems programming language, but I am confused beetween Rust and C++, maybe I'll write more about this conflict in a seperate post, just to clear my mind. Currently going through the amazing C++ Primer book by Stanley B. Lippman. Here's what I want to accomplish before I start a new job: -Be somewhat competant at managing servers -Learn to use Sockets, GraphQL and a GraphDB -Message brokers and microservice architecture -PWA stuff such as storage, notifications and location

I'll keep posting here till someone tell me not to do so. See ya!
