Hello World

May 29, 2021

Hi! My name is Miguel Espinoza and I’m a software engineer who deeply enjoys building awesome user experiences from mobile/web to chrome extensions. I've made the jump to start a blog and #buildinpublic.

I'm embarking on a voyage to build a successful indie business. I'll use this blog to document the process. I'm in the very early phase of building an MVP for TurboNav, a browser extension that will help users navigate through their tabs seamlessly.

We all know that overwhelming feeling of always having too many tabs. No matter what extension you install inevitably you end up with a mess, unable to find what you're looking for. It's simply hard to stay sane, I'm aiming to provide a solution for that. More details on that later.

Why trialanderr.com?

Now, a little bit about the title. Why trialanderr.com? Well first of all the price for trialanderror.com was

Other than that, I like the concept of trial and error, I've gained much of my experience in software development through this method. I think that's why I enjoy it so much. That feeling of working hard and staying focused to uncover an issue or get to a solution is priceless. I aim to continue tackling challenges and when I'm stuck just use trial and error to get to the solution.

It's awesome when other concepts just fit in nicely, for example I found this quote that comes from Alexander Pope’s "An Essay on Criticism, Part II".

“To err is human; to forgive, divine”.

To err Is human” really resonated with me, making a mistake is part of human nature. Learning from those mistakes is an opportunity for growth.

Lastly, because I’m a big fan of the Go programming language (I plan on using this for backend systems in the future). I really like how errors are handled explicitly and well the naming convention for error variables is err

_, err := helloWorld()
if err != nil {
  fmt.Println("🙃")

So there you have it! trialanderr.com is live! Thanks for reading, hope to see you back soon!

✌️ peace!
