Meet Stanimir, a senior software consultant at VMware.
But most importantly, Stanimir is the lead trainer for Telerik Academy Upskill React and one of your mentors during the 3-month program.
A mentor is someone who takes a special interest in helping you augment your skills. Stanimir will teach you the technical side of React, and he will also share his personal experience. He will be your guide and will lead you through all the steps so you can fully understand React.
That is why you must get to know him.
Hi, all! There are so many other things, but I’ll share two of them. I am passionate about extreme sports like snowboard and boxing. An interesting fact is that I competed in the national boxing championship. Beyond that, I love reading books that help me improve my skills.
I highly recommend the second edition of Code Complete by Steve McConnell.
It all started with curiosity, which is still my driving force. When I was in high school, I came across a book about programming with C. I was fascinated by how you can create something from a text. During my high school years, I continued to expand my skills in programming and internet technologies. That’s when I created my first website.
The next logical step for me was a university degree in Informatics.
As developers, we work in a very dynamic environment. The only way to stay relevant and stand out from the crowd is to keep learning and augmenting our skillset. I try to devote at least 10% of my time to study new things and experiment with new technologies.
Yes, absolutely. There are a lot of interesting people to follow online so you can have a constant stream of information. But if I must pick three of them, I will first go with Neal Ford, who is part of ThoughtWorks. They have something like a tech radar for the development of software technologies. He regularly shares intriguing information about software architecture.
The second one is Dan Wahlin, who is a software consultant. He shares valuable articles and courses for web developers.
And then there is Dan Abramov. I highly recommend everyone interested in React to follow him. He is part of the team that shaped the library and is one of the creators of Redux. Through his profile, you will find valuable guidelines on how to use React.
There are a lot of exciting open-source projects, so it’s hard to point out just one. But if I must choose, I will go with Ant-design - a compilation of React components.
Well, it’s not something that simple, but I have a short explanation. It’s an elegant way to understand what and where we have to update in HTML DOM.
