Are you on TikTok?

I don't know about you, but I frequently find myself lost in TikTok's #techtok content. There are so many brilliant content creators and software developers there sharing clips of their skills, inner monologues, humor, and beyond. Who knew that so much could be communicated and captured in just a few seconds? 🤯

If you're a software developer who's also on TikTok, share your profile in the comments below so we can all follow you!

I also wanted to let you know that, whether you're on TikTok or not, there's an awesome opportunity to be featured on the CodeLand 2021 program using your skills and personality as a developer...

CodeLand Recess is a community-sourced track of short TikTok-style videos that will lend some fun, humor, and developer-realness to the day's events. We'd love to see a video submission from you!

All CodeLand Recess video submissions are due by August 20th by 11:59 PM PT (6 AM UTC the following day). Get yours in soon! Instructions and examples here.

Share your TikTok profile in the comments below — and consider submitting a video to CodeLand Recess!

I make content for the Spanish-speaking community, both on TikTok and on Instagram I appear as @emprendeyourlifestyle, I publish content on web development, digital marketing and tools, and if you like, follow me on Twitter as @SebasttianDaza.
Thanks

I'm on TikTok 😀 tiktok.com/@allthecode?

I mainly post my Instagram reels there, they seem to go down much better on IG (two of my reels are on nearly 200K views on IG and only a few thousand on TT) but it's fun either way

Mainly dev career stuff, getting your first job, getting to senior dev, that kind of thing

I genuinely never realised anyone used tiktok for anything apart from miming along to songs I don't like. It never even occurred to me that people might use it for tech. I know someone made a bunch of instagram "post-its" with tips on them, which was cool.

Tbh I used it for two weeks and uninstalled it not long after. People have said you have to 'give it a chance' to get to know you but all I saw was high tier cringe and lowest common denominator content. I much prefer twitter and this site for dev content. I think the short snappy nature of TikTok just promotes less in depth content. I also have worries about how data is mined on that app. I mean I know they're all at it but TikTok does seem to give a deeper level of access to your phone from what I have read.

Tldr - not my thing, don't get the appeal, worried about how the app mines data.

I am on TikTok but I rarely use it because the app is too damn addictive. Never realised there was a dev community on there.

Honestly, I am not into TikTok or Snapchat and I also do not like it, because nowadays it is just bullcr*p content.

I used to until it was banned in my country. It was a bit distractive, psychologically but I do miss the "cool tech hacks" type of videos :D
