As a software developers, we fail in two ways: we build the thing wrong, or we build the wrong thing.
– Steve Smith
I was revising my knowledge on DDD(Domain Driven Development Not Developers Developers Developers ) and how I enlighten by few of my work starting from Unit Testing to Test Driven Development to Behaviour Driven Development and incorporate with Domain Driven Development. I think knowledge and know how helped me a lot but still sometime I felt doing too much of learning is not worth until you utilise your talent and find out its application and apply in a real life not for just fun but keep stack and build better software and application and solve some great problems of actual business complexity with great enthusiasm.
After such a long journey of being a developer, I have decided to move on and always wanted to be an entrepreneur, I asked myself very first thing, Can I do anything it takes? Do I have the balls to dare it? After long thought around 39 days, I have come to a conclusion. “YES, I DO.” So no matter what I will be successful. Let me first define what is success to me, after lots of attempts for being good at something, I found that I can do certain things quickly than others, I am lucky enough that I have invested in self-development tools. Which will certainly going to help me to thrive my thirst.
So I have decided to write and filmed my own progress next 100 days. I have set my goals and my desires to measure my success. I am sure this is going to help lots of other people those who want to be or do what they always wanted to do. I can assure you this is going to be a daily chore for me and I will start using technology at the most.
So keep an eye on it.
Log for Day One:
I am currently using a top notch and up-to-date Notebook, (Lenovo YOGA 13 – i7 Windows 8.1 Pro) 8 GB RAM, 128 GB SSD, etc., but after I have signed up for free update for Windows 10, I was so tempted to upgrade but I think my first encounter was so dull and scary with Windows 10, I thought leaving it not want to waste my time at the moment, especially as I am so into the zone. (Ninja – turtle). Also, I need to define what do I need to log and what not. I am going to log what I planned, what I have done so far, what I have done, which was not planned and how do I overcome or undergo those situations. I know it will be a bit harsh on me, but I am ready for all those things. As I told myself whatever it takes. I want to be a mentor to me. I know it deep down I can do anything I want and achieve what I can think of.
Here is my Day one Plan and the next day I will update it.
|Friday Morning 6:30
||Not planned anything yet
||Wake up, quickly go through emails, check webservers are up and running, everything is normal, Chase update from outsource work (doah…. ) Ping them to come on Skype, done quick emails to few other stuff. Write down what to be done so far.
||dragging, not so motivated,
||Quick Skype meeting after chasing for two days and learn they have no resources to do such things. I have immediately make my decision, I will do it myself. Just F* Off.
||Negative, Angry, uurrr…,why didn’t you tell yesterday.
||Update to Visual Studio 2015
||Download and install VS2015 setup from MSDN subscription
||Failed and Roll back to original what a waste of an hour.
||Drop Krisha to Tennis Camp
||Rush hour, get quickly ready and drop
||Idea shine and come to place I am going to write what I have done so far. Good Stuff.
||Set up NopCommerce Site for Local Development Environment
||I thought it was easy but hey ho.. nope. Damm, quite a few efforts to setup and realized , I don’t need complete set up instead I need source code to start with. aaaa…hhh.. foolish me. Finally set and up and running. Build Successful
|Take a training on Project 2013 from Lynda |
||Pick Krisha from Tennis Camp
|Continue Tennis |
|Start Writing Product Development Plan |
|Finish Day if feel OK Write next day, Week and Fortnightly Plan. |
After picking Krisha and spend around 1 hour on training I have received a sad news and it was shocking for me, obviously it changed my all priorities as well. I was manage to come out for it quickly but need to help misses in shopping and arranging BBQ next day. So all my planned sink.
The classic example of communication gap in a every developers’ life. It is truly a dilemma of a developer.
