Hi, This is Bonnie!
I am a Web Developer, Technical Writer and Content Creator. I help developers get into Technical Writing by creating valuable, inspiring, and quality content. I believe in Hard Work, Honesty, and Willingness to help others.
Bonnie has worked as a freelance technical writer with exciting tech startups and companies such as Arctype, HarperDB, Fusion Charts, and Sencha. He is currently working with LambdaTest, a cross-browser testing cloud platform.
All I have always wanted is to use my creative ideas to create products or services that people love and solves their problem. Then in the process creating employment for myself and others.
I was admitted to the School of Engineering in 2016 to pursue a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical and Production Engineering. I was excited about this opportunity and what it meant for my future.
Joining the School of Engineering not only meant that I could land a well-paying job, but it also meant that I was getting a chance to do cool stuff and get my ideas out to the world.
However, after one year, all the excitement and enthusiasm had worn away. I thought I was here to do cool stuff but it was all theory on a syllabus that was at least a decade outdated.
While attending classes, you could feel that the lecturers were just doing it for the pay. Not for the passion in the subject they were trying to instil its knowledge into us. This made me switch from excitement mode to survival mode.
This meant it was all about getting good grades to graduate and get a job rather than learning cool stuff to solve problems facing the society.
It got to a point where the lecturers went for a 3-month civil strike followed by another 6-month strike. This gave me a chance to do some soul searching and decide whether this is what I wanted for myself.
I was a self-sponsored student and that meant my parents paid a lot of money to fund my education. I did not see the point of continuing to waste my parents hard-earned money through a degree that I felt I did not need anymore.
At that point, I knew even if I graduated I would take that paper, put it under my bed or hang it on the wall and go do something I was passionate about.
So I asked myself this question, "What is the point of staying here doing something I was not passionate about just to get a piece of paper that I was not sure if I would ever use it?"
In the process, I had joined an organization called the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. Opportunities and events that IEEE offered made me fall in love with technology. Right away I knew I wanted to do something in the field of tech.
The instant gratification I got from using these technologies and seeing results immediately was out of this world. Finally, I had found something that I was passionate about and enjoyed doing. For me, it was about building cool stuff.
