I’m Abdul Basit, a self-taught MERN Stack Developer. My background is in Mechanical engineering, and the last year of my degree, I discovered my interest in coding.
That’s why when I say “Self-taught”, I mean I’ve learned it by experimenting with code.
I have worked as a full-stack developer in different small and large companies. My expertise is in MongoDB, Express.js, React, and Node.js. I am passionate about building web applications, APIs, microservices, and the cloud.
Besides coding, I enjoy keeping an eye on trending tech innovations and technologies and reading to satisfy the cravings to consume quality content.
Having a different background was a challenge for me to get into the tech field. I coped with it by jumping from one point to another and fortunately found the right direction.
I started this blog to share my experiences and lessons from shifting to a new field, building web applications, and new learnings.
As a developer, I often struggle to select font colors with background contrast for my passion projects or write articles for codevertiser. So, I created a web app to list down color contrast I come across on the internet. It has 67 curated "Background with Text" colors contrast. You can choose the best contrast for your landing pages, stores, and blogs.Visit Project
I also developed a free ReactJS waitlist template with a light and a dark theme. It has styled Components for styling. I have tried to have structural and clean code, and isolated components that you can use in any project. I used site data or a dummy data folder for the navbar, footer, and other component.Visit Template
I have a portfolio built with Gatsby and Markdown. My portfolio has everything about me: my journey, projects, and articles on the dev community. I am considering redesigning and rebuilding the portfolio in NextJS.Visit Portfolio
Apart from the above projects, I create valuable repositories on my GitHub. My GitHub has all the challenges and tutorials explained in my blogs. You can use them for practice or learning.Visit Profile
