I look forward to being exposed to new projects involving the latest technologies and standards, and meeting new people to learn new mindsets and perspectives as well as to enhance my critical thinking, problem solving and creativity skills.
What would you like to achieve in the next six months?
In the next six months, I am excited and would like to expand my knowledge in full stack programming languages, learning methods, and tools to build and manage sophisticated applications.
