It’s my Birthday!
And also my blog’s birthday.
I always wanted to do this, but just like many other bloggers and aspiring bloggers, I’m terrified to click that ‘Publish’ button. I feel like nobody cares for what I’m about to say. And I don’t think that you will spare me five minutes of your life reading this one.
A little byte of me.
So what should I do next? What can I write to make you stick to the end? Will you stay with me if I tell you that I’m a computer programmer? Is it okay to reveal that I have a wonderful wife and a cute cuddly daughter? Will you be interested if I told you that my first love is Visual Basic 6.0? Definitely you will punch me in the face and yell “VB6 is dead!” Oh yeah, it’s dead. But even our parted loved once deserves to be loved, right?
And what about Android development? Are you like me who created an app without even understanding every single line of code you wrote – or copy pasted from stackoverflow?
Forget the professional thing, I’m just a curbside coder, I’m just like the 90% of the programmers that knew many languages but didn’t really master any of it. I know how to drink coffee while coding JAVA and I think my eyes were sharp because I can code C#. And CSS? Anyone here who use the inspect element of Chrome to get the div and class of the text so you can make it “bolder” and changes it’s font to “Roboto”?
Did you find yourself looking at gazillion of lines of arrays returned by an Ape-Pee-Eye (API)? Did you murmur while staring at the ceiling and make your friend “uncomfortable” watching you type that nested IF statement? Did you dreamed that one day, you will be like Bill, Steve or Mark and “crack the code”?
Can you run it?
So much for that, I can see 120 bugs in your eyes while reading this and telling yourself “what’s in it for me?” Well here’s the thing – this blog isn’t only about me. This is also about code newbies, wizards and ninjas forming all together to leave a snippet of their knowledge.
Here you can find simple yet helpful piece of code for your school project, side-business or even corporate task. Also, as a bonus, I will try my best to provide helpful hacks about freelancing, start-up business, blogging, and everything online.
So that’s it, I guess I don’t have to post a potato.
Hope to see you again (please)!
Christian Foster, Curbside Coder
