October reads

I haven't done the monthly reads for a really long time, as I've recently purchased a kindle ebook reader, and along with new uni year, I have made through quite a lot of good books this past month. I guess they might be worth sharing.

My top tips to stay on top of your life and don’t go crazy

Hello, beautiful people of the internet. How's the life going? Mines, as you can probably deduct from lack of posts in the recent months, is very busy, engaging and demanding. New job, second year of uni, very active 4 year old and a global pandemic on top of all that! But I don't write that as an excuse or for someone to pat me on the back....

First year at uni: the summary

With all grades released, that's the end of my first year of Uni. It's been a rollercoaster of emotions, but I still think it was the best decision I could have ever made.

Time for a little summary..

Lockdown: for me

Lockdown slowly eases, so I thought I will reflect on those last, really weird 3,5 months. As everyone remembers, on March 23rd almost everything closed down and it seemed like the world is coming to an end. It has been a very stressful time for a lot of people, including myself. Workplaces shut, shelves in … Continue reading Lockdown: for me

Raspberry Pi scroll bot- soldering, building, coding

Although I am a frontend developer with all my heart, I was always fascinated by how to build robots or wearable technology.

I haven't done anything about it until....

Developer’s library: license-free illustrations

In the last post, I've shared my huge list of sources for license-free images (you can read it here). I hope you enjoyed this library of free goodies because today I would like to list my go-to places when I need cool illustrations for my projects. Here is my list of sources for licence-free illustrations: … Continue reading Developer’s library: license-free illustrations

Developer’s library: license-free images

The right images are so important on the web. They make a huuuuuuge difference in any project. But have you ever searched the internet for an hour (sometimes more), looking for a good-looking, license-free image, illustration or an icon to go with your new design or project? Yeah...me too. Probably most of the developers were, at some point. Over the time, I discovered quite a few great websites that offer just that, so I'm gonna make your life easier. I'm gonna share my resources with you. Let's start with images...

Strengths finder

Have you ever heard of the Gallup's Strengths Finder test? No? Me neither... until this morning.

I was browsing the internet looking for something, going from site to site and I got across it. I was intrigued, so started to look into it. The real Gallup's Test is paid for, but I found a good free alternative to take online. High5 test helps you understand your strengths, and although there are 100 questions to answer, all you have to do is use the slider to say if you strongly agree or strongly disagree with the statement describing a certain behavior.

It took me around 10 minutes to complete the test. The results? Well..they didn't surprise me at all! It was 100% me. And to show you how cool it is to discover your "powers", I will share my results....

How I got into uni after I thought I never would

Since most of my days are now split between inventing things we can do while locked inside the house, and which will satisfy a short-attention-span of a three-year-old, and finishing all my uni assignments, I have literally no time (or power) for any extra-curriculum learning. Sad, but that's how it is sometimes. After all, we are all just humans, right?

Anyway, I thought I will tell u a little story of how I got into Uni after I thought I never would be able to. I wanted to write this post for a long time, to shine some light on my past and maybe to inspire someone in a similar situation to mine.
