Technical Assessment
So obviously dissapointed by the score, but great to have a roadmap on areas to improve. In a real-life scenario I think my UI enrgineering skills are higer but the theoretical knowelde is probably missing .

@Daniel Malmgren de Oliveira that last part sucks, that's for sure. But it will make you skill up too, I guess. I didn't know about Smashing Magazine - I will take a look, thanks for the tip. I'm sure that backend will be great to also make you think differently! Feel free to share resources or tips you ahve along the way. I am personally looking at Design Patterns and DSA just to get back on the horse, so I was curious at what you were focusing on right now. (Really enjoying this one from Jay Wengrow)

@Daniel Malmgren de Oliveira really enjoyed this video from B & D :)
NodeJS project to impress
Hi, I have started learning node to get into fullstack and widen my opportunities even further in the future. What does this fantastic community think would be a good portfolio project to do which would make employers take notice of it? A simple todo app won’t cut it. Love to hear your ideas!

Whatever you do, even if it's supposed to be more focused on the backend, remember to make it look good 😅 For inspiration - In my bootcamp we did an app called "Save my date" playing around with zomato's API and the Geolocation API. You could plan a "date" and choose the restaurants around you with zomato, we could also play a bit with maps (not sure if we used google maps or another one), and choose the person to invite and send them a confirmation email. It was fun and showed different skills. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
Book club idea
After watching D and B's 5 Must-Read Books for JavaScript Developers in 2024 I have decided that I want to read some of these books (specifically "Extreme programming" and "Browser networking). Last year while between jobs I hosted a weekly book club for developers where we went over "Advanced React" and "Responsible JavaScript" and I got a lot of value out of discussing these books chapter by chapter with fellow industry professionals. I was thinking that having a book club meetup with members of Software Mastery/The Senior Dev Academy would be great since it's safe to say a lot of us are on the same page. We could read through the books one chapter per week and spend an hour discussing and clarifying the concepts. However, I am in Australia and 8 hours ahead of you in time so realistically the sessions would have to be anytime between 9am-1pm your time for me to be able to make them consistently. At this stage I am putting this here as an expression of interest, I would very much like to go through these books with some of you and I would like to be more involved in this community. Please let me know if you're interested here and in the coming weeks we can decide on a book and put together a time.

Goal Setting - 90, 1 and 3 years goal setting
After being in the communiity for a while, I saw that I hadn't been through the goal setting stage in the Classroom. It was nice to write down at least partially what I aim to reach for myself. 3 Years From Now I’m a Senior Developer, leading a team remotely, while still programming. I’ve become proficient in my chosen tech stack, which includdes React. I’m mentoring and I am active in the Women in Tech community. I am either working 4 days a week, or part-time, or with flexibility to pick up my kids and have a healthy work/life routine. On the money side, I’m earning €80,000 (almost double of June/2024). I am teaching and mentoring. I interview for the challenges and I am not afraid of interviewing anymore and I work somewhere I enjoy and where I feel valued. I work at a remote-first company with people I enjoy, with benefits and bonuses. 1 Year From Now My company’s merger is finished and I am ready to start interviewing and back to the market. I used this time well and I have learned a lot, being able to work as a Salesforce Developer (Full stack) now, even though I still mainly work as frontend. I am becoming more confident in React so I can go back to the market and search for a better job, looking for a € 45,000 - € 60,000 offer. 90 Days From Now I passed the PD1 exam certification for Salesforce, becoming a full stack Developer (on paper at least). I feel more at ease with the upcoming merger. The certification (and mentoring) has taught me a lot about testing and generally working as fullstack. I re-took the Assessment for Software Mastery and my percentages went up. I feel ready to start focusing my efforts into going Senior level, hopefully with Software Mastery, but if not somehow. I have some interviews to be able to negociate a salary increase.

@Daniel Malmgren de Oliveira Obrigada! Just do it, it's going to give you some positive vibes :)
👋 Hi, my name is Nick. I am a Senior Front-end Developer based in North Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿. I work mostly with JavaScript, TypeScript, React, and CSS (Tailwind), but since I was made redundant in January I have been trying to embrace a more full stack approach and have built a couple of applications end to end. I am here to gain more confidence in my own abilities as I absolutely suck at technical interviews, which in the past 5 months has been a lot. I am a very open person and always willing to learn at every opportunity.
