Diary of experience Blockchain learning
I’ve been working in the public sector odyssey for almost 10 years, and wrestling with the pandemic, reflecting on ones own life and future intentions, I took a leap into changing my career direction focusing on software( to add hard skills to my office), I can honestly say my dreams and aspirations are playing out in reality better than I expected. I completed a developer blockchain bootcamp( this was an exceptional find online). I threw myself into the online tutorials, videos and learning with an array of fear, uncertainty and doubt. This propelled me to embrace and gave me the drive, commitment and above all consistency to plough through and complete the tasks and challenges. Having a mentor that was available 24/7 was transformational and greatly assisted me win small victories along the way.

For me my aim was to achieve smart code; I was always wrestling with the demons of distraction and leading myself down other paths as soon as errors occurred within code seeking google help, reddit, Stack Overflow, 3 schools and MDN web docs and more googling without doubt gaining a masters in googling along the way. My friend the error chap I quickly learned was always present and forever contributing to my coding self-understanding.
This is only the beginning of my compelling journey into software(Blockchain); What is truly extraordinary is the speed with which my transition has fully blown into a bewilderingly vast enterprise. I now find myself 1 year on and having experienced the ups and downs of a newbie programmer eager to get my start in this sector. There is however much work still to be done like all pioneers of the industry expanding LinkedIn profile, networking, Github portfolio makeover and importantly networking and more networking!!
I have focused only on following my own intuition and educational start discovering how I see blockchain the core technology used to onboard cryptocurrency as a promising career applied in many areas such as finance, commerce and judiciary. I am excited for the blockchain innovative technologies that appear to surface every week and am enthusiastically dedicated that soon I will play my part in such a hot topic with enormous potential for countries, institutions, enterprises and researchers.
