Hi everybody, my name is Augustine and I'm fairly new to this platform. I started my journey into programming around 2017 and I've genuinely found real joy in the whole process, both in the challenge of it and the reward of finding creative solutions to simple and complex problems.

However, one area I found particularly challenging was how often random chunks of information were laid at my feet as a Computer Science student. Any intermediate or experienced developer will confidently tell you the importance of understanding data structures and algorithms if you plan to undertake any serious programming or even seek employment. College often presents them as two arbitrary fields with no clear dependence between them, a flawed strategy which inadvertently turns a fun engaging field into a frustrating chore.

I found that the best way to take back the joy of coding while learning as much as you can is to find something else you truly love outside the world of computers try creating something exciting in that field. By doing this you'll find yourself placing the necessary context to units you'd have initially deemed confusing or unnecessary and understanding their place in a system of your design. It also places your career in a trajectory that lands you in a job or venture you'll ultimately enjoy and find fulfillment in.

Personally, I have a burning obsession with space, the cosmos and everything to do with the beauty and mystery of the universe. My goal is therefore to steer my career in the direction of space engineering, travel, software, manufacture, etc. My current project is a simple android app ' Astraphel ' for sharing astronomical media and information and discussing it with peers and I can honestly say its been my greatest learning experience. By taking on what may seem like a simple project, I've gotten better in my field while engaging more deeply with something I really love and ultimately birthing a new software tool by bridging two things I love.

This is my first blog post on this platform so forgive any poor structure. I hope to learn a lot from you guys and ultimately get better at this.

What is Flutter and why you should learn it?

Flutter is an open-source UI toolkit for mobile developers, so they can use it to build native-looking Android and iOS applications from the same code base for both platforms.
