Hi all 👋 (Olá)

Hi All,

I’m Luís, a Full Stack Developer (previously more focused on FrontEnd but now focusing more in Backend). I’m Portuguese but I’m currently living in London and working for Bulb, an energy provider Startup based in London.

Since I work for a startup as a Full Stack, I have to work with a variety of :hammer_and_pick:. Below is the current tech stack I’m currently working (sorted by decreasing knowledge):

  • ECMAScript (JavaScript)
  • CSS
  • Node.js
  • React + Redux
  • TypeScript
  • Docker
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform
  • GraphQL + Apollo

I’m currently juggling my learning through the following:

Technologies & platforms:

  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Terraform

Other:

  • Algorithms & Data Structures
  • Design Driven Development (DDD)
  • Functional Programming
  • Leadership & soft skills
  • Communication & writing skills
  • Software Architecture

When I’m not working/studying tech/career related stuff I like to draw (is mostly scribble) and play guitar (is mostly noise :slight_smile:).

Hi @Will :wave:

Thanks for welcoming me :smiley:.

There are the resources that I’m reading for Leadership (they aren’t purely leadership but they have a bit of Management as well):

Things that I want read/watch in the future:

  • The Unicorn Project
  • The Manager’s Path
  • The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership Fable
  • Culture Map
  • The Mythical Man Month
  • Accelerate: Building and Scaling High-Performing Technology Organizations

(I only managed to put one link since I have a new account so it doesn’t allow to put multiple links sadly)

Do you have any resources for leadership that you would recommend?

Edit: I found this awesome list that could be useful https://github.com/LappleApple/awesome-leading-and-managing

Hi @laurosilva for Algorithms & Data Structures there is a ton of good resources.

Academic approach to Algorithms & Data Structures:

  • Stanford University Videos that you can watch in Coursera specialisation or youtube playlist of Stanford
  • Princeton University Videos that you can watch in Coursera or O’Reilly Learning
  • IMT Open Courseware -electrical engineering and computer science introduction to algorithms fall 2011

If you prefer or learn better in JavaScript:

  • Egghead includes some algorithms videos
  • FrontendMasters Algorithm videos
  • Bigmachine Mission Interview
  • JavaScript Data Structures and Algorithms (Apress)

More hands on approach:

  • LeetCode
  • Interview Cake

List of other learning resources in github:

  • washam - coding interview university
  • ossu - computer science
  • jdsutto - Technical Interview Megarepo

Hi Luis :slight_smile: your description sounds so much “like me”, that I need it to check the avatar pic to make sure that is not “my description” :)))

cheers,
Cristian
