Introduction

At the beginning of this year, I began with my graduation project as a software engineer. There was one small problem, a pandemic was rising as well. In the beginning, I thought that it would soon all be over — but I was wrong. During the entirety of the graduation project, I was working by myself. This was not something I was prepared for during my education, but we all had to deal with it.

It was a tough 6 months but eventually, I graduated! Finally, but what now? No graduation party for me. No holiday. I decided to directly start my job at the graduation company, as I didn’t want to sit at home for some weeks. …

Introduction

Social media is one of the most important ways to reach a larger audience for your business. Today Instagram is one of the best-known social media platforms. Instagram is all about visual content. History teaches us that visual content — like images and videos — stick around longer in your brain than just a line of text.
