After watching Ben Awad’s video on his plans for 2021, I figure’d I would follow suit and write a blog post for what I want to learn in 2021, and what I learned in 2020. For this list, I’m defining “learned” as begin able to use something on my own, with minimal help from stackoverflow.

What I learned in 2020

I learned a lot in 2020, my current role really pushed me to learn things I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

  • Ruby on Rails

  • Ansible

  • Express

  • Docker

  • Gatsby

  • MongoDB

Those last 2 I learned on my own time, but they’re absolutely great and I think they’re worth trying out.

What I want to learn in 2021

Here it is, the big ole list of things I want to learn/use in 2021, pretty much in the order I want to learn it

  • Next.js

  • Prisma

  • Some fancy CSS technology like Chakra UI or Tailwind CSS

  • Dynamic apps in Gatsby

  • Definitely want to do more with TypeScript

And there you have it, that’s my learning goals for 2021. I’m getting my master’s in cybersecurity in May, so after that I want to hit the ground running on all this. And while not tech-related, I also want to learn another language (not programming lol). I’ve spent some time on Duolingo lately learning Japanese, and I’m hoping to be able to carry a conversation by the end of the year.

That’s all for now, see ya! 👋
