If you’re my close friend, I have definitely told you about my dream of retiring by 30. There is only 1 problem, it has been a dream for around 8 years now. I have been living in la-la land and I had not noticed until someone challenged me to rethink this at the end of May 2021.
FIRE stands for Financial Independence, Retire Early. According to Investopedia:
Financial Independence, Retire Early (FIRE) is a movement dedicated to a program of extreme savings and investment that allows proponents to retire far earlier than traditional budgets and retirement plans would allow.
Shell scripting is useful when it comes to automating redundant tasks. I have written an article that will help you get started with shell scripting in bash, you can refer to it here.
Decision making is an important process in life. When writing bash scripts it is inevitable that you will need to make decisions on whether or not some instructions should be executed. To achieve this, conditionals and logical expressions and are used.
Conditionals are used to make decisions in a bash script. There are two major types of conditional statements in bash; if and case statements.
I am a huge fan of automation, I don’t like wasting time on redundant tasks. There is a quote that has stuck with me from the first time I heard it but I do not know the author of the quote.
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the same water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of your life.
Hence, we should always strive to save as much time as possible, once you lose it, it’s gone and cannot be recovered. This is what made me get interested in…
I wrote my first article roughly 8 months ago. And a lot of things have changed. My skill set is on another level and I’ve learnt so much in that period.
My new commitment is to write one article a week documenting my journey and maybe even post some tutorials. The possibilities are endless.
Stay tuned 😄
I am a newbie in Android but I have over 4 years experience working with Java. Though not at an advanced level. When Kotlin was announced as an official language supported by Android I didn’t really understand what the craze about it was within the Android community.
That is until I encountered my first and later on numerous NullPointerExceptions. The application that I was looking at kept on crashing and so I had to catch every block that had issues. That is the case because I didn’t have a better alternative. You can leave better ways of me solving such issues in the comments.
So my conclusion… I will definitely have a look at Kotlin because I hear it has made great advances in solving the issue.
But for now, the journey of being a master Android developer using Java continues…
