Transitioning from SharePoint to Front-end Web Development: A New Chapter

How I discovered my passion for front-end web development and decided to change my career path.

My Experience in SharePoint Automation

During my time at State Trading Organization (STO) and as a Senior M365 Consultant at Cielo Costa, I gained valuable experience in SharePoint automation and frontend development. These roles provided me with a strong foundation in JavaScript, React, HTML, and CSS, allowing me to create efficient solutions for various clients. However, I recently discovered a growing passion for traditional front-end web development and decided to pivot my career.

At STO, I led a team of three and successfully digitized and automated paper-based processes across multiple departments. We faced challenges such as creating a common API module for List/Library CRUD operations and coordinating with various stakeholders. The most significant challenge, though, was the transition from multi-page applications to Single Page Applications (SPAs), which ignited my interest in front-end web development.

My Decision to Transition to Front-end Web Development

As I delved deeper into front-end development best practices, I realized the immense potential in creating interactive web applications. This realization led me to contemplate a career transition from SharePoint automation to traditional front-end web development.

My experience as a Senior M365 Consultant at Cielo Costa reinforced this decision. I worked with clients to design solutions using MS Form, Power Automate, and PowerApps. While these tools produced impressive results, I found myself increasingly drawn to the creative aspects of front-end web development.

My Goals and Expectations for the Future

As I embark on this new chapter, I am eager to tackle the challenges and opportunities that come with the transition from SharePoint automation to front-end web development. I am confident that my strong foundation in programming languages, problem-solving abilities, and dedication to continuous learning will enable me to excel in this new journey.

In conclusion, my experience in SharePoint automation has equipped me with the necessary skills to thrive in front-end web development. I am excited to explore new opportunities, grow professionally, and contribute to the ever-evolving world of web development.
