Hi there, welcome to Frontend Meditations. In this blog you’ll find topics related to frontend software development, the process of making online projects and other related areas like software engineering in general, UI/UX development, and, once in a while, unrelated topics that I feel might be relevant. I’ll write about my experiences in the field and you’ll probably find tutorials, overviews and opinion articles in here. Let’s see how it goes!

You might have noticed the blog’s name makes reference to “Meditations”. That’s a book written by Marcus Aurelius, a roman emperor and philosopher, recording to himself his perception and thoughts about different aspects of life for his own guidance and self-improvement. For Marcus, writing was a way to make himself humble, patient, empathetic, generous, and strong in the face of whatever he was dealing with. While I’m no expert in roman history, nor in philosophy, Meditations worked as an inspiration to start this blog, and so, the name and style followed and had to make reference to it!

While I hope writing this blog makes me more humble, patient, empathetic, generous and strong as a frontend developer, writer and person… if what I write here ends up helping you or any other readers, that would be quite a good start!

“Not to feel exasperated, or defeated, or despondent because your days aren’t packed with wise and moral actions. But to get back up when you fail, to celebrate behaving like a human, however imperfectly, and fully embrace the pursuit that you’ve embarked on.” – Marcus Aurelius

And that’s it for an introduction. I might revisit this post later, but, for now, I’m eager to start writing about the actual topics. If you have any ideas or requests, I’d love to hear them and you can write them below in the comments! Thanks for reading and see you on the next one!
