New articles .... here I come!15:07 PM - 17 Oct 2018
Like I said on twitter, I was "writing" on the wrong platforms all this long.
I made some experiments and studies on different social media channels, from instagram to linkedin, and I could throw poo all day long, but you can just look at the top content to see for yourself.
Here you do not have to be a super star in order to have people read your content.
I will treat this event as a good sign. I will continue to write and help as many devs as I can. I have some big plans for next year, the people I am currently helping encourage me as well:
- new blog stack (transit to Hugo, medium no longer fits my needs, 8s loading time ...)
- finish my 12+ series of Pragmatic Docker tutorials and real examples for developers
- start a Youtube channel (I have previous editing experience, I just need some hardware and to improve my English), mostly for Programming and Cloud basic tutorials. I want to cover all the missing topics from Bootcamps and courses.
Context: now I am helping junior developers on 1-1 sessions, and I realized that I can help 1-n people just by recording the material, because most of the problems they encounter are common.
- finish 2 chapters of my book (long stretch, probably will not happen, but hey ... wishful thinking)
