In this post, I introduce myself, explain why I want to start blogging, speak about what I am doing currently and see how may of the last weeks goals I completed.
Hello beautiful people on the internet.
I am Yahyaa, a Computer Science and Engineering graduate(almost). I enjoy working on automation, cloud and data engineering.
I was looking around to host my website with a blog and portfolio, but I wasted a lot of time to not find anything good fit for my needs.
Thus, I have decided to use Hashnode as a starting point for my blog. After all, who wouldn't love to have a completely managed platform to use with minimal setup.
I plan to blog at least once a week, preferable two-three times.
After sometime, I think I'll build a custom website for my portfolio. Who knows.
Why I want to start writing blogs
My primary reasons are:
- I really need a blog to document my journey so that I know what I have been doing when I look back.
- I want to improve my writing skills.
- I want to connect with new people.
What I am doing now
Currently, I am learning AWS. I am using ACloudGuru to prepare for Solutions Architect Associate Exam. I do not know if I will write the exam, but I plan to finish the learning material and do a couple of hands on projects to solidify my knowledge.
I will be attempting the A Cloud Guru #CloudGuruChallenge – Event-Driven Python on AWS challenge. Also, Hashnode and HarperDB have a hackathon going on. Might as well use HaperDB to participate in the challenge. Two birds with one stone (why not ?).
Last weeks goals
✅ Understand and complete the ACG AWS SAA course (I am halfway through, so it counts a little bit)
⬜ Work on a few exploratory data analysis projects I had planned to complete.
( I don't know how to add checkbox
- [ ] to the blog like I normally do in github markdown files.)
Looking forward to the future.
