Well hello there! I’m so glad that you found my little corner of the internet. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out.
The blog goal statement
According to the people who are good at this ‘content creating stuff’ it’s importent to have a goal statement. So here is mine, and a little bit about the process that led me to it, and to creating this blog.
I’ve always loved to read, and write, and create content. But somehow I ended up as a Front-end developer, and I never thought to combine these things. I’t was a case of major imposter syndrome, “I don’t know enough so I have nothing to share”. But then, after almost a decade in the industry I realised that everyone has their unique perspective of things, so even though I might not reinvent the wheel here, maybe my perspective will make something clearer for someone else.
In my experience I can read three different blogposts about exatcly the same topic, and only one of them makes sense to me. Therefore I’m adding my voice to the mix, and maybe one of my blogposts will be the one that makes sense of a topic for you.
My goal is to create content, mainly blogposts, about topics I find usefull in my work, and create resources that can help others.A cup of dev – goal statement.
I will strive to make content that is easy to understand for developers at any level.
Now that you know why I created this blog lets talk about me. My name is Eli H. Schei and I’m the writer of this blog. In the daytime I work as a senior consultant at a Norwegian company called Point Taken. This blog is my side project, and the opinions here are my own.
I’ve been working with SharePoint and digital collaboration solutions since 2013, so my career as a front-end developer have been shaped by this. Most people that has worked as a developer on previous versions of SharePoint will probably agree that… well, lets just say it was not the dream platform for a front-ender like myself. But I do love to help people collaborate better, and SharePoint is very good at that. Thats why I stuck with it.
And then Microsoft 365 and SPfx (SharePoint Framework) came along and it finally started to feel more like “normal” web development. But I imagine, that for new developers starting to work with the different M365 solutions it can be quite overhwelming (in some cases, it still is for me). Thats why I’m passionate about creating good content, especially for beginners in this sphere of the developer universe.
In the consultant business everyone is so concerned with certifications, so ofcource I have to show off mine as well 😉
