The strong start
I bought a subscription at knpuniversity, which is an amazing service for learning Symfony and everything you could possibly need on your way.
the videos are fun to watch and it never gets boring. I pushed through the Symfony like I was insane. I watched 2 – 3 hours a day on PHP and symfony.
I was very confident on Symfony. So I went on and started a own project, the rewrite of a website, which I take care of. It also went well. But then I stopped learning, because, yeah, I thought I knew enough.
The beginning of the end
And then the day-to-day kicked in and I didn’t spend too much time, looking into my Symfony skills. On my day job I worked mostly in Django or Python projects, or on sysadmin tasks. The night I spend with tinkering around on things like chatbots or shooting videos about ansible and building development environments.
I was productive, but I did not stick to the fucking plan. The plan was clear. LEARN SYMFONY AND PHP. There wasn’t happening that much. The half of the year was over and I hadn’t really advanced in any kind. The outline for the plan was way to loose. “Learn PHP” isn’t that much of a plan.
But of course, this could make me unhappy and sad and make me even more procrastinating, but no. That ain’t me. It ain’t that I accomplished nothing this year. I learned a lot of new things. But I need to make better plans. Outline the way better, what I want to accomplish.
In the next days, I will publish a post, about what will happen in 2018, with a timeline, which I will stick to.
