What Does Programmer Do?

Hey guys, I am a programmer, I learn to programme from an early age. The programmer is building stuff on the computer.

I started building a static website with HTML with a tool called FrontPage which generate a HTML code from WYSIWYG tool. Then I keep building and have a website hosted on the internet, and it's still alive, it was 14 years old and still online on Tripod.

For me building stuff on the computer is interesting, I love digital crafting so that I keep moving, use new tech and build stuff, either for web mobile or desktop, just love it. Especially when we can make a beautiful user interface which is elegant and easy to use.

Alright, the topic I want to highlight here is programming, what really programming does.

I program because I want to create stuff, programming a method to do that. Like any other tool to make something, you have to learn to use tool to make things.

And what it takes to be a programmer, I think, understanding patterns is a crucial element as a programmer.

To see the whole picture program build with codes, files, and folders. A compiler compiles everything to make a product.

The smallest part of that is syntax which is the grammar of the programming. We must follow the syntax to make the program works. We have to learn and understand the syntax to make the program workable.

Well, syntaxes are patterns that are created by people who make the tool.

I learn a multitude language of programmings. The rules are same, follow the syntax, learn how it works. So I keep learning. And I take notes, lots of notes about rules of programming. I keep a reference to the rules because I cannot remember it all.

So that's it, the master rule for programming is to learn the pattern of the syntax of programming language.

Sketch vs Adobe XD vs Figma

Topik ni agak menarik for UI designer, tool apa yang best untuk buat UI/UX untuk digital product.

Dalam dunia sekarang ada 3 tools utama untuk buat UI/UX:

1. Sketch
2. Adobe XD
3. Figma


Tool yang paling tua antara semua. Dan tools lain ada function untuk import dari file skech, jadi kalau design guna Sketch pastinya berguna untuk di transfer ke Adobe XD mahupun Figma.

Banyak resources. Senang nak start atau nak guna resource yang ada dekat internet.

Banyak plug-in untuk emudahkan kerja.

Stabil, tapi tersedia untuk computer Mac sahaja. Sorry Windows user.

Adobe XD

Ia tersedia untuk Mac dan Windows. Ia sebenarnya agak popular dikalangan pengguna Adobe.

Dan yang terbaiknya ia adalah percuma untuk digunakan.


Feature yang bagus untuk collaboration. Dan dia juga boleh guna on the web.

Kelas ZKM


First of all I keep writing up this blog since 2015 di mana terdetik untuk terus kan blog ni sebab ikut saranan Dr Azizan dalam MMM 2015. So here we go dah 2019 pun I keep update this at least 1 post every month.

Last week I went to #ZKM short for Zero Kos Marketing, and interestingly the cost to go there is zero also, yes it's free, sponsored by Richworks.

Alrighty, yes basically the class was the best, I gave my best to listen, learn and munch the information as much as possible. The knowledge is fresh, and quite advanced and deep. It's not long stuff but really packed. Just need time to implement it in the right way.

By the way, I shared my notes to the ZKM Group, I took note with my trusty iPad Pro ( mid 2017 ) and it was receiving such amazing feedback by group members. Best of all even Dr Azizan said 'dasat nota ni'... kudos to all of you for give such positive feedback.

The killer for the notes is the doodle I think, I just scribble the face the outfit as detail as I can. Hope if look like the real person. It's not easy to draw a character to looks alike someone right.

But yeah, it's a powerful and fun journey so far. I love what Richworks is doing and I learn many stuff of course in business. I think without the insight from them, I would not get what I achieved today.

And of course there is many to come, the strategy I learn is too powerful to implement many of them, step-by-step baby. 

Alright, till next time.
