I find that working on projects is the best way for me to learn. There is something to be said for actually sitting down, thinking about how to solve the problem and actually implementing it. I’ve found that there are hidden challenges that I wouldn’t have seen if I had just designed a solution on paper.
Check out these projects to see what I’m working on:
