I like to believe that I have strong technical skills within the web space from front-end to back-end. Some days Imposter Syndrome kicks in badly. I’ve actively started talking about it.

I’ve mainly been working in the .NET stack on web but I like dabbling with all sorts of languages, libraries and technologies. I also have a passion for UX and design which is why I chose to design my own blog. You can checkout the GitHub repository if you like. Feel free to share any tips or tricks with me.

How I started this blog

I’ve worked in small to medium sized companies for a large chunk of my career. When I joined a corporate in 2014 the transition was overwhelming. It changed my life by introducing me to the development community and offered me an array of perspectives.

I’ve made many mistakes in my career and I have learned to find opportunities from them and then wrote about it.

I am not advocating that everyone should start working at a corporate but this is how my career officially became a journey.

For every negative experience I encounter, I like to extract learning points. This is what I want to share on Corporate Programmer - a survival guide of sorts. I don’t always get it write but when I do I hope it proves useful to you.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me.
