A few months later, I was a full stack LAMP developer. I built mostly custom products for consulting firms and my own startups. Then, something changed. I was introduced to the world of mobile apps and given the recent explosion in apps, I wanted in. I became a full stack swift developer and learned cocoatouch. I began using tools like Parse and Firebase to make my own mobile apps, however, I always noticed that I wanted more freedom, like in the old days of LAMP. That's when I began learning Node.js and mongodb.
I was introduced to the world of APIs as a backend. This forever changed the game as I was quickly able to build my own backends and deploy them to multiple front end clients such as iOS, Android and Web Apps using a single API as a backend. My applications became more robust and I was able to improve the way I did business. Now, I want to spread my knowledge with you all, and more important I want to teach you the importance of understanding the code RATHER than copying blindly from other developers.
