I just want this post to be a short documentation of my current thoughts and perspectives as we rush towards 2024. As I’m writing this, 2024 is just a few hours away. Can’t believe that it’s been four years since 2020 feels like yesterday and the fact that the year 2040 is nearer than the year 2000 the year of my birth. Don’t know what to think about these past few years, feels like too many things have changed and much going on, but at the same time does not feel like much happened at all.
I like to try out new things and experiment with my systems quite a lot, and because of that, sometimes things break or don’t quite work as expected. Sometimes it’s a compatibility issue or because I messed up something. And that has sometimes cost me a lot of unnecessary effort and time. I mostly never have to worry about most of my data, as I keep backups for most of it, or they are on cloud storage that I keep in sync with my local storage.
I distro-hop quite a lot, sometimes to check out the new features of a distro and get a little feel for it, other times just to check the compatibility of different pieces of software. For these reasons, I might stay with a distribution for a long period of time or just for a few things here and there, but no matter the reason, I need to create a bootable media from the respected ISO files and burn them to a USB and so on, and I have to do it every time I want to change the distro for some reason I need a bootable media.
It’s been more than a year since I’ve started working with typescript and the Node ecosystem, and throughout I have not written a single line of frontend code, Which I think is strange for some folks since I get asked about most things related to frontend, and they are surprised when I say I don’t know ReAcT. So I decided to change that and take a look at the frontend world.
