Hello ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ

Alright, aloha and hello internet on my new blog ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ.
Welcome to my very first blog post here (well, actually I tried this before to be honest, but that was a total fail โ€ฆ).

I think Iโ€™m gonna use this one to write a little bit about myself and what Iโ€™m doing here and then the next ones will hold some more specific content. At least the first topics are planned to make sure this time this will be a little bit more consistent ๐Ÿ˜€

Ok, so whatโ€™s important, Iโ€™m Jan, 22 years old at the moment of writing and living in Karlsruhe (in the south of Germany to be more precise). I studied mechatronics after school for one year but also not more than one year โ€ฆ I quit this because it just wasnโ€™t the right thing which turned out to be a pretty good decision. After that I took myself a year off to decide whatโ€™s next and spent 2 months in beautiful South Africa with some penguins.
Next up, in fall 2018 I started my apprenticeship at an agency in Karlsruhe as a webdeveloper and I have to say since then, Iโ€™m pretty much enjoying this journey. Overall this is an awesome community but I want to say more on this another time. Iโ€™m really happy Iโ€™m in the last chapters of this apprenticeship, because the school part is not really that much helpful and enjoyable (this is actually much understated, but I get angry every time I try to argue why the school system is a little bit messed up, so thatโ€™s enough for here :D). Luckily the team and colleagues, and also friends I met and made during this time and in this environment is just awesome and Iโ€™m really happy and grateful to be in that place.

So, you guessed it, or if you even came from places like my instaram (otherwise, go follow me there ๐Ÿ˜ฌ), you already know I do a lot around the web. My main passion is playing around with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and all the other frontend stuff. Nevertheless I also already got in touch with backend stack like PHP or MySQL and although I can work with that as well from time to time, itโ€™s not my favorite. Besides that, Iโ€™m also into design as well. Not my best skill, but Iโ€™m trying and making things like this blog or my homepage 100% on my own to practice and get better. So please donโ€™t be too hard with me on this one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Generally, Iโ€™m interested in a ton of different things. Actually I would say too much but at least Iโ€™m sure I never get bored โ€ฆ This includes developing more skills in design (some illustrations for example), improving marketing and business knowledge, getting better at playing the piano and just a lot of technical skills that I donโ€™t need all to mention here on their own. You will here about it when I will make some time to work on and with them.

So, I guess thatโ€™s pretty much everything you (donโ€™t) need to know about me for now. If you want to follow me, I put all the different links right up there in the sidebar (if youโ€™re not reading this on DEV) so you can check out my other profiles.

Thatโ€™s it for now, see you. Sometime. Somewhere. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝ
