Earlier I wrote a post about how I wanted to move towards web technology and what I planned to learn next. I’m glad to say I have learnt a lot since then but not quite what I was expecting.
At the start of the year I changed roles at work and joined the mobile team. I have always been into mobile but never thought I could have the opportunity to do it for a living. Having come from a desktop development background using C# and SQL server mostly it was a challenge to retrain, but one I was up for!
A few months on I’ve delivered my first module for our apps and now feel confident that I can produce quality apps. Here’s some of the skills I’ve picked up in the last 6 months:
- Titanium SDK
- Alloy MVC Framework
- JS libraries such as Underscore and Backbone
- Jasmine unit test framework
That’s all for now, I just wanted to revisit a previous post and update my progress. All I can say is that sometimes things don’t go to plan but just keep moving forward and learn new things!
