About Us

Welcome to Programmer Block

I am Himanshu Gupta, a Software Architect, Cloud Enthusiast, and founder, creator, and editor of the Programmer Block Blog.

In my 12 years of experience, I have witnessed people get overwhelmed while learning new technologies and understanding where to implement them in their projects.

Why do we name it Programmer Block?

Programmer Block is a state of the creative block we developers usually experience that afflicts our development. There are numerous reasons behind this block.

  • You are overwhelmed when you want to learn new technologies and explore new avenues in the Programming world, but you get drowned in the ocean of tutorials and articles.
  • You feel pointless when you learn a new language but don’t know how to practice your learning or where to use the same.
  • With long learning hours and practice sessions, you burn out mentally and physically, leading to anxiety, low motivation, and distractions.
  • You learned the language, but you are stuck at some error, which is expected since you lack experience.

I have experienced all three reasons in my career, and unfortunately, there are significantly fewer resources available to get help, or you need to pay for the same heavily.

To address the reasons mentioned above, we have created a Programmer’s Block blog where we will share the Cloud, Spring Boot, and Java Tutorials. Also, to get the experience of your learning, we will provide Hands-on courses which guide you through a step-by-step process to implement or use any learned feature.

We are also planning to present the feature requirements, and you need to design and develop the solution via Lab Challenges. Lab challenges give you confidence in your learning, and with ever-growing our community, you can discuss your answer with fellow developers.

This blog will share our learnings from our day-to-day job and helps to learn Cloud Concepts and Java Programming.

What are Hands-On Courses?

Programmer Block provides the Hands-on Courses experience with a step-by-step guide to using the cloud or programming concepts.

We believe you only learn when you practice independently, not by mugging the concepts.

The hands-on courses have distinguished according to the difficulty and topic to help you decide which on-hands lab you want to practice.

What are Lab Challenges?

Lab Challenges are the requirements to challenge you to implement Cloud Development or Java programming development and help you to test your knowledge.
