Hi everyone!

Welcome to the dev.to-community!

I'm Martin, and I worked as a Senior Front End Architect and Engineering Manager at some of the world's largest digital agencies, where I led Front End Teams for international projects. After 15 years, I quit my job. Now I travel the world as a professional scuba diver, work as a freelance Front End Tech Lead and technical Recruiter for international clients. Besides that, I write about technology.

My latest book about The Complete Developer will be available from No Stach Press mid-March. It's an easy, hands-on introduction to creating web applications with Next.js, MongoDB and Mongoose. You can read more about how to become a published author in my upcoming article about writing books.

I am mentoring fellow developers on another platform as well as on dev.to. I am currently publishing the "LevelUp: Elevate your Career Today" series where I give Career and Interview advice based on my experience as Engineering Manager and Technical Recruiter. (It's bascially free mentoring, don't tell my paying mentees about that :D)

If I have enough time, I write more in-depth articles, for example how to create multi-language pages with next export, which is on GitHub:next-export-i18n and npmjs: next-export-i18n


I recommend following the general tags webdev, vscode , career and productivity and javascript, react, CSS. Head over to your Dashboard and adjust the tag weight to personalize your home feed.


Here's a list of articles to start your journey as a successful developer and a great writer:


If you are looking for your next job, I highly recommend buying the Book De-Coding the Technical Interview Process by Emma Bostian. It is hands down the best preparation for every technical interview.


If you're interested in my articles, follow me on dev.to/martinkr or twitter.com/_martinkr.

If you have questions or want to get in touch, don't hesitate to contact me on dev.to/martinkr.

And remember to start posting today!

Cheers!

Hi everyone! I'm thankful for this community, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you all and your stories.

I'm a Software Engineer of roughly ~20 years and have worked for large corporations and fast-paced startups. My favorite programming languages are Java/C#, PHP & Javascript/Typescript (in no particular order), and I always enjoy jumping into new technology.

I'm currently building a startup named Filerev to help everyone organize their files in Google Drive. The software is built using the Google Drive API and runs in AWS. I'd love to hear your feedback on my startup.

Hello fellow Devs! I'm John, and I've been crafting software solutions since 1992. I was young. I still love it! I've worn various hats - from being a lead, manager, and executive to serving as an enterprise, solutions, application, and/or systems architect often as a player coach.
In terms of coding, I'm proficient in C++(old school), C#, Java (especially Springboot), Javascript, React, and SQL. Last summer, I started the Python journey - still a bit ignorant, but I finished the intermediate courses.
I'm excited to share my knowledge and contribute to the community this year. I'm here to be a resource and to learn from all of you as well.

Hey folks!

Welcome to DEV. 🙌

Quick tip: you can create comment templates which you can set up for responses that you use frequently. For instance, I have a number of quick tips which I've set up as comment templates so that I can regularly drop them into these welcome threads and this is one of them. 😉

To set your templates up, just navigate over to /settings/extensions and follow the instructions under the heading Comment templates.

To use your templates, you'll need to click into the comment input box, click the ... menu, and click the icon that looks a bit like a book. You'll then see all your available responses.

Here's a post with more info on this feature:

If you have any questions about this feature or anything else, don't hesitate to hit me up. I'm happy to help!
