Jack of all trades.
Back when the whole family used to have a shared computer, we got our first PC. Shortly after, when I was not even 10, I was exposed to coding - and I was hooked. Suddenly, going through each topic of books with a thousand pages on VB, ASP and HTML was oddly satisfying. That's when it all began…
Although I did study finance & accounting for 5 years in college, but the passion for coding brought me back. It was an interesting experience going from and back to coding. Fast forward to now, it seems everything worked out pretty well.
Writing code for decades (yes, plural) may sound like a monotonous and boring thing, but even today when the code executes and display a beautiful app or even some data - it's equally satisfying.
During my brief career so far, I got the opportunity to work at every level of tech stack of many products. I have worked on multiple websites, their front-end development, mobile apps, back-end development, DevOps, etc.
Building real-time chat applications, to processing huge sensitive data in way that makes business sense. Designing and maintaining infrastructure critical for a business, to streaming media for uninterrupted entertainment. Creating efficient solutions, to… you get the idea. If "magic" word hadn't been taken already, it would've been used for this.
I still learn something new almost every week, if not every day. This one inherent ability has helped me take up new challenges and grow my skills exponentially over the years. The fact that almost every product I've worked on has gone into the market and shaped a business, or at least a person - hopefully in a positive way - helps me keep doing what I love doing.
By no means I know all of them completely, but having a versatile skill-set helps me grasp new skills quickly. Keeps the passion thriving.
