Let's stay in touch

Hey πŸ‘‹πŸΎ

My name is Ndeye Fatou Diop and I am a Frontend developer from Senegal πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡³, living in France πŸ‡«πŸ‡·.

My non-linear journey with Frontend development started in 2014:

  • in 2014, I interned in a company using WordPress β‡’ this introduced me to Web Development
  • 2014 - 2018: while in college, I learned basic Web Development and applied it to small projects. I could do basic HTML, CSS, Javascript, JQuery, Django, etc...
  • June 2018 - June 2020: I worked as a Software Engineer with Python, Spark, etc.. and occasionally with Javascript
  • Since June, I have been working full-time as a FE engineer

Sadly, until 2019, I couldn't level up my JS skills and understand why the JS ecosystem was so complex 😒. I tested different learning platforms (Codeacademy, Treehouse, Udemy) but still no luck.

Then, I stumbled across the YDNJS book series and FrontendMasters which helped me a lot. They also made me realize my biggest mistake: I didn't know the fundamentals. Because I was self-learned, I didn't take the time to master the basics and as a result, a lot of things look like magic πŸ§™πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ to me.

I don't want other people to make the same mistakes. That is why I am building frontendjoy to provide in-depth, engaging Web Development content. I want you to know why some technologies exist (CSS, React, Typescript, etc.), and what you need to know about them.

If you are learning Web Development and feel overwhelmed, join me on this journey πŸ₯³.
