Hi there 👋

I'm a Fullstack Developer, previously at IBM, based in São Paulo, Brazil, looking forward to grow with the DEV community over here 🎉

Feel free to reach all over my social networks, and I'll soon post a lot of content over here as well 🪴

A matter of curiosity: I'm completely passionate about open-source, astronomy 🔭, and retro stuff 💾

Hey Tyrell! I love all kind of retro stuff, but specially tech (I've a Thinkpad x240 and some old Nokia's cell phones) and gaming (I had a console collection but I needed to sell it, so I'm looking forward to restart my collection in the future).

Hello Thomas! Welcome to the community 😊 I am a self-taught Developer in progress.
Documenting the journey is indeed a great idea! (which I have been procrastinating on) Time to do that 🖖🏾

Thanks for the welcome Prakirth! You should definitely document your journey! It helps you retain information as it encourages active recall and you also leave a footprint which you can reference in the future!

Definitely! Couldn’t agree more. My problem is that all my documentation is scattered all over GitHub, personal notes, blog posts.. etc., need to aggregate all at one source. Any suggestions?

My only suggestion is for you to rearrange it and if it's too many, a little every day goes a lot. While doing that, start uploading already despite skipping some of your journey since you're still arranging it. That way, you're establishing the habit of documenting already. It's the most important thing, imo.

Hello there! 👋 You got such a cool career! ✨ How did you get there?

I got an interest in etchical hacking as well! Today I completed the Introduction To Ethical Hacking course on Codecademy which I started on yesterday. I also enjoy hacking games like EXAPUNKS! I got a whole bunch of hacker games (a little over 30), some of them even look quite realistic like the Hacker Evolution series! (You may disagree).

Much welcome to our wonderful community! I am the unofficial welcome committee of one 😁 ✨

Hi Anita

Cool, I didn't know that game yet!

The paths are often mysterious :) Actually, I've always been interested in security, but never had the energy to fully familiarize myself with it (I'm more of a 0% or 100% guy. I'm not good at anything in between). Then I got the opportunity and realized that there aren't that many people in the industry who can really program and know how developers think. I see the possibility that I can make a positive difference in my bubble. That gives me the energy :)

I am happy to be a part of DEV!

We have a great community and good posts here, feel free to follow some fellows and tags like

#sql

Posts on tips and tricks, using and learning about SQL for database development and analysis.

#net


#angular

One of the world's most popular frontend JavaScript frameworks.

#javascript

Once relegated to the browser as one of the 3 core technologies of the web, JavaScript can now be found almost anywhere you find code. JavaScript developers move fast and push software development forward; they can be as opinionated as the frameworks they use, so let's keep it clean here and make it a place to learn from each other!
