Let me take you through some highlights of 2017 in my programming/work/study life—not in my world-at-large.
In all the tutorials that I have watched about programming, I saw the tutor was using a MacBook pro to develop on. So I bought one (15", late 2016), with the thought that I would learn faster to program.
Learning to program went better than expected. I searched for a job and found one! I quit my job as a Team Leader at Albert Heijn and started to work full-time as a Junior Software Developer at Service2Fruit. My first software job! 😄See Service2Fruit's website
Seven months after the start of Business Administration (BSc) at Radboud University, I switched from study. I started to study part-time Information and Computer Science (BSc) at Open University. 😍
I completed the course "Object Oriented Programming in Java" at the Open University! 😎
I attended Zaandam Valley, organised by Albert Heijn. There were talks by Vincent Ulmer (CEO at Botboys), Joost Hofman (Lead Developer at Albert Heijn IT Online) and many others.Read more (Dutch)
In three months' time, together with two colleagues, I completed my first software project. It was my first software project that I worked on from sketch to end.
I attended a talk that was organized by Luminis Academy. Sander Mak, author of "Java 9 Modularity" (O'Reilly), showed how to set up modular applications with the Java 9 module system and discussed other Java 9 features.Read more (Dutch)
