Hi there!

I am writing this article to remind myself of how much growth I made in a year. My birthday was on the 9th of October, which is usually a mark that reminds me of starting my journey into mobile application development using flutter and dart. This years' was a remarkable one. I mean there was no obvious celebration and all. But reflecting on how much I've grown and achieved in a year, I smiled. wiped my tears and now I am back to doing all the scary things I always avoided.

This not-so-technical-article is going to be a prelude to a series of technical articles that I will be sharing with the community. As some may already know, I derive so much joy talking about technical terms, but most especially when I need to explain to them using food recipes and amazing new dishes.


My name is Cynthia Chidera Peter, popularly known as "Obiagu" on Twitter, that combination already tells you that I am female and from the eastern part of Nigeria - preferably referred to as the Igbo's. I take so much pride in my tribe and culture and do my best to represent positively.

I have a Diploma in computer science. And some certifications here and thereπŸ˜‚ as my Nigerian folks would say. In my early days, I dabbled into visual basic, graphics design, content writing, blogging, Social media marketing, data science, and a series of programming languages that I obviously failed at.😣 Well, I learned from all these experiences and these I will share in my blog.

However, my biggest win has been going from not knowing what flutter is on the 6th of October 2019 to landing my first job at a tech company in September 2020, and what's better? I work remotely.πŸ’ƒπŸΏπŸ’ƒπŸΏπŸ’ƒπŸΏ The experience has been crazy, but worth it. I've had days I cried, days I broke my stuff when I throw a fit, there were days I just wanted to stop trying. But all thanks to some really good and supportive friends, I had to keep going.

In the next few months and years, as I learn and struggle through this path to becoming a better mobile app developer and technical writer, I also wish to share my experiences and this includes the mumblings, small wins, big wins, technical shots, all the tips I learned on this journey and the hacks that worked. I am horrible at consistency, but I hope for this one time, y'all amazing humans will hold me accountable.

Finally, I hope that this blog brings not just information, but inspiration and motivation for everyone that's on a path to becoming better.

Thank you for reading!
