I was nothing but a normal internet citizen until I discovered the magic of ‘inspect element’ feature in web browsers. It enabled me to look behind the websites I browsed everyday and it gave me the confidence that I can create anything. That was my humble beginning of web development.
Started working with HTML5, CSS3.
My contributions to Mozilla also starts here.
My previous knowledge in Photoshop gave me a head start
I started off creating a trading site on my own with little help from ‘Headfirst PHP & MySql’ book. The first thing I created was a great title bar with CSS animations. My first failure, I understood fancy animations can’t get me going.
My baby steps in PHP and MySql
Design thinking begins
Inspired by what colors can do
AJAX is really beautiful
Started developing apps for Firefox OS
After deploying a site for testing, I understood the world is not like a fairy tale. My app started crashing on large traffic and heavy load on the database. Then I started approaching standardised techniques and started my learning towards low redundancy deployment and more precisely scaling of applications.
Started adopting PHP frameworks
Node.js and NoSql also started creeping in
Design thinking and CSS3 became my bed and pillow
BTW, I have also started my journey with Android development even though I'm missing a lot of my CSS there.
