Welcome to Refresh

Welcome to Refresh Digital my development blog created by me Gary Miskimmons a Frontend Developer based in Northern Ireland. The first question you might be asking yourself why I started blogging. Was it for extra money or to develop my brand?

The answer is neither the reason is much simpler. The reason I started blogging is that it is a place for me to log my learning. In our Industry always good to stay up to date with new technologies and development trends. The older I get however the more difficult it becomes to get free time to learn something new. By locking myself away a few hours a week have started to log my learning experiences in the I hope to learn much more in with a pre-planned schedule.

Being at the edge of technology is so much fun while also challenging. All of which builds up your skills to solve problems and also increases your arsenal of tools. I’ve seen the benefits already with my first post. I’ve found out you tend to drill deep down into that and discover things I didn’t know or even think about. They say you never fully understand something until you try to explain it.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

On this blog, I’ll share with you the skills I learn so you can learn them along with me. This will include topics such as HTML, PHP, Javascript, CSS, APIS, Angular, React and much much more. Thank you for reading, visiting and being part of this conversation. If you would like to chat or have any questions drop me a message I’m always happy to talk.
