My current goals

Introduction

Hello! I'd just thought I'd share my goals for this year! Yes I know it's a little late but I thought that if I write them down somewhere it would motivate me to actually do them. 😗
I know that if I don't write them down I won't actually do them.
So with that being said here are my current goals. 😎


Current goals

  • Finish my WebRTC tutorial series - sorry for the lateness, the android tutorial is already in the works.
  • Create my own running android app - I like to run at least three times a week and would like to use an app that's unique to me, plus I've thought about this for a while and it would give me an oppurtunity to learn Kotlin.
  • Learn how to create more advanced GStreamer/FFmpeg native apps, not just using the commands all the time. - This will give me an oppurtunity to get better at C/C++.
  • Play around with GStreamer WebRTC - Would be great to create a simple SFU/MCU.
  • Code an side projects for at least 30 minutes a day - Easier said than done sometimes.
  • Read at least one technical and non technical book a Month
  • Update my blog at least once a week - I know I slipped up but I'll try not to let that happen again.
  • Share what I learned with everyone and give back to the community - Hopefully the information I share is useful to you.
  • Learn a frontend JS framework - I'm terrible at design but it would be nice to create my own landing page etc. Thinking React/Vue. Any recommendations? Please let me know.

Wrapping up

phew, short post but that's basically what my goals are going forward.
Hopefully it inspires someone. What are your current goals?

Happy Coding. 😃


Like me work? Any support is appreciated. :)

Good goals, make progress as much as possible, but don't forget to get some rest or do some activity to stay healthy physically and psychically!

EDIT: Oh I miss that u running. Nice! As I think it is so important to do some sport when you are developer.

Thanks :)

I completely agree that you should do some form of movement if your a developer!
Healthy body is a healthy mind.

Hi, Good luck to achieve theses goals !

By the way, where do you learn C?

Thank you!

I learned C by following along with the GStreamer application examples and just looking up what I didn't know.

React would be a good one, since a lot of that knowledge carries over to React Native, and maybe you could write the V2 of your running app in RN.

Thanks for the advice!
I have very little knowledge about React so I'll give it a try. :)
