Hi all, I鈥檓 here as a man on a mission. I have little knowledge about coding in general today, but was quite the guru in early dot com days. Things have changed so much, for the better, there is so much more involved. The challenge is awesome. I do however find myself chasing my tail quite often; I think I watch and read too much without putting it to practice because when I attempt to put it to practice it鈥檚 like I鈥檝e done no research and can鈥檛 do anything. I think I need a good YouTuber, beginner friendly, who knows how to record to an audience that is following along. Too many record screen and voice and just talk as they make code, without explaining very much or slowing down so we can do as they have. I have high aspirations of coding a web3 project. And the project of choice, drum roll please鈥.building the gig economy on web3.0. I recognize that I couldn鈥檛 have chosen a more complicated project to build, but come hell of high water I鈥檓 determined. First step, practice actually writing code, lol.

Thanks for reading and it鈥檚 good to be a part of the community!

Hey folks!

Welcome to DEV. 馃檶

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. 馃槈

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!
