Finally Loving Mobile Development

August 28, 2017

Looking back during the last 10 years or so, mobile apps are nothing but a stranger of this world. Then suddenly, it boomed and went crazy. Nowadays, you can’t see an individual without a mobile phone.

To be honest, I’ve been trying to learn mobile development for quite a while. Then at some point, I stopped and moved on again with web instead.

I don’t know.

It seems that there is this some sort of negative energy or aura that makes me think I can’t love the mobile platform. And going back two weeks ago, I remembered my experiences way back in college.

My college background

During college, I have this infinite amount of enthusiasm for programming. Basically, I was specializing in building desktop apps back then using Java as my primary language. I build apps everyday. Even after school, or during school hours. I loved it. I’ve built different apps with the main purpose of improving my other people’s life.

  • I created a library management system.
  • I created a grading system specifically for our school.
  • I created a chat system for use in our home.
  • I created an iTunes-like app that plays my own library of songs.
  • the list goes on…

Those memories just came back at me and I realized how passionate I was during that time. For those reasons, I was able to bring back that fire and motivation to continue along and learn a new thing.

Fast forward to today

Today, I’m happy to say that I am halfway to finishing The Complete React Native and Redux course on Udemy and targeting to finish it in a span of two weeks. My primary goal is to be comfortable with mobile development and build really useful apps for everyone.
