Hi 👋 I'm Tatsuya, a self-taught front-end web developer from Japan. It's been 4 years since I started my career as a web developer, and I've been freelancing since the beginning.
I am passionate about learning new things, and web development is the best for me because it never stops evolving and it's fun to keep up with the latest technologies.
Currently, I'm interested in React, Next.js, TypeScript and other front-end stuff. Also, as I go deeper in the front-end world, I became more and more interested in back-end. Eventuallly, I am planning to become a full-stack developer.
Aside from work, I love traveling. I often use Couchsurfing and hang out with people from all over the world. You can often see me traveling in SouthEast Asia.
I started learning web development in 2018 November. After 3 months of self-study, I got the first project on a crowdsourcing platform. Since then, I've been freelancing and I've worked with many companies and freelancers.
For now, I'm in partnership with several tech companies in Japan. Most of my tasks are WordPress theme development, and corporate website coding.
My goal at the moment
For the past 4 years, I've done so many WordPress projects but I got almost no experience in using modern tech stack like React, Next.js and other. (In Japan, WordPress is still dominant)
So I started learning Next.js and this blog is the very first project that I built using Next.js. From now on, I'm gonna learn modern tech stack like React, Next.js, and Jamstack and hopefully get some projects. Also, I'd like to work for clients outside of Japan.
About WebTech Note
In this blog, I'm gonna write about web development, mostly front-end stuff. My current interests are Next.js and React, and Jamstack so there will be a lot of articles about these topics.
The reason I started this blog was because I wanted to build a blog with modern tech stack. I actually have a blog webdev.tech on WordPress and I still post articles once in a while, but it's been almost 3 years and I'm getting bored of using the same stack.
In this blog, I use the following tech stack:
- CSS Modules(Sass)
I briefly explain how this blog works in another post, so check it out if you are interested.
