I love to write about my current learning experiences and explorations, which usually involves reading and experimenting with new software technologies. It’s always exciting to keep up with the latest developments in the tech world, especially with the explosion of LLMs (large language models).

I believe that the way we write software today will undergo significant changes in the next 1-2 years, leading to the development of more niche products and a further expansion of software into new industries.

I’m eager to share my knowledge with others and hope that my writing will be helpful to those interested in staying up-to-date with the rapidly evolving tech landscape. I’m also open to feedback, suggestions, and comments from those with different perspectives and approaches to learning new software technologies.
