Year 2022: A Personal Recap and What I've Learned Along the Way

The Year 2022 is close to finishing; it was a fantastic year for my professional goals and family. I got 39 years old, so my focus was on investing energy in topics for my job to make my developer life easy.

I want to use this post to thank everyone around me who helped make this year amazing, got goals, and helped fight through the hard moments.

Start 2022

I don't want to hide, but the start of 2022 was not easy, some issues with my eye laser surgery were a bit hard to handle, and I took more than expected to recover.


In April, I started as Technical Writer for Kendo UI Angular.


Join the GDE Family as Google Developer Expert In Angular. Thanks to @Bezael Pérez and GDE Community.


I started the blog focused on translating content from top community leaders to Spanish. Thanks to Tim Deschryver, Rainer Hahnekamp, and ManfredSteyer.


I start to learn more about @cypress component testing with the GDE and the great guy Jordan Powell and @Bezael Pérez .
