What I am doing now

Updated February 27, 2024.

Trying to level up

  • At the moment I have around 2+ YoE as a software professional, the transition from this mid-level position to a senior is a bit hard, but I’m trying to get there.
  • 2 key things I am trying to figure out:
    • Working with large scale systems, i.e. products/projects with a large user base. Not sure if that even matters in the grand scheme of things.
    • How to lead larger projects. As in taking more responsibilites & ownership.
  • Programming stack wise, I have worked majorly with Go, with a touch of Dart (Flutter) & Python for few months or short term work projects. I guess I will stick with Go for a while but the next item on my list is most definitely Elixir.

Working on personal projects

  • Recently started a new project called shedock, it’s an experimental tool to dockerize shell scripts. Doing this exercise to learn more about the container and shell ecosystems.

Trying to lead efforts as a volunteer

  • I have been with r/developersIndia since its inception in 2020 as a volunteer, acting as a lead. So struggling with the responsibilities and trying to make it better.
  • This includes moderating the community, organizing events, potentially evangelizing about it.
