My first video on instagram was edited on Canva

I am not a designer. I don't really have any creativity in designing anything.

However, as I am a Software Engineer and running my side hustle, I need to do some designs myself, like a logo design for my website and software products. Photoshops, illustrators, and any other similar tools are quite complicated for me. It took me so long to actually design something and it didn't really look great. Not because of the tool, but because of my creativity. 😅

So, I came across Canva and it changed the way I see the design. It doesn't really have to be that hard overall. Canva provides really great templates and a variety of graphics, photos, and fonts to use. It is very friendly for non-designer like myself. I started using it for almost everything to do my job, such as logo/icon design, business cards, pitch decks, presentation slides, and sometimes even for some landing page mock ups. It's just awesome.

Among all those cool stuff, there is one amazing thing I have ever done on Canva, which is Video Editing.

Recently, I wanted to create a music video with all my Instagram stories combined. I don't want to overcomplicate myself to edit that piece of video. So, I searched on the Internet and see if there are any simple cloud-based video editing tools. I tried a few of them but didn't quite like it.

Then, I realized what if I try that on Canva? I downloaded all my Instagram stories and uploaded them to Canva. Then, I started putting them frame by frame. With the help of Canva animation effects and audio, I finished my very first music video for my Instagram. It probably took me roughly around 3 hours to get all of it done. It's just AWESOME!

For every software project, it starts with the first line of code. The code design, implementation and architecture for your very first release is what I call, Genesis Code, which will determine how far your software can live without refactoring and rebuilding it.
