icapps believes in growth and development, both personally and professionally. Our icabbs bus symbolizes this idea. We interviewed some of our colleagues about their journeys and goals. Meet Sam, a frontend (web) app developer, who had a year full of personal growth!
What was your biggest achievement this year?
The biggest achievement for me this year was learning new programming languages. I learned Node, React, and React Native, which allowed me to turn my knowledge into a product. Although I had some exposure to these languages in school, it's a whole different level to apply them to real-life projects.
Why did you want to learn these programming languages?
Actually, it happened organically. There was a need for more manpower on certain projects, and I was interested in learning about them. But not only that. I can feel quite uncomfortable when I can't fully participate in a meeting. By that I mean I would like to have knowledge about the subject that’s being discussed. That's why I always strive to learn as much as possible about the subject.
I try to store information selectively so that it flows more smoothly. Learning something new is always a challenge, but a fun one!
