Today I want to explain why this blog is called sayari3, A few months back, I was watching a video on YouTube about Kevin Systrom the founder of Instagram and I really liked it. You can watch that video here before I continue telling you my story. The video is shown below.
If you have read my About Me page you will realize that I am a self-taught software developer and I don't have a background in computer science, I have a degree but my degree is not related to computer science. Kevin Systrom the founder of Instagram did not have a background in computer science, he was self-taught too.
This is the main reason why I got inspired by this story, we can learn that even if you do not have a background in computer science, you can still build a great product if you have the skills.
I am not saying that a computer science degree is not important, what I am trying to say is, if you cannot afford it, don't worry, you can still bring to life that amazing idea you have.
But If you can afford a computer science degree, go for it, it will open so many doors for you. For example, getting a job may be easier if you have a computer science degree.
so what is sayari3
Sayari 3 means planet three in Kiswahili language and it comes from a side project I created by modifying open source projects (bootcamp), the main purpose of the app was to post beautiful photos of our planet.
Open the link below in a new tab to check it out, but it is read-only (I disabled the file upload system), you cannot add more videos to save on cost.
Sayari 3 was just a side project which I was using to learn, after I was done with it, I wanted to shut it down, but then I told myself, let me convert it into an educational blog where I will be sharing the things I have learned. This explains how this blog got this weird name, I never changed the domain, I re-used it and changed the home page to point to the educational blog.
My final comment will be, stay curious, keep learning and keep growing and remember failure is not the opposite of success, it is part of success.
