Hi, DEV! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

My name is Julianna and I am incredibly excited to announce that I have joined the DEV team as an Associate Software Engineer! This will be my second week working with the wonderful team behind DEV and I am thrilled to be here.

My first introduction to DEV was in September of 2018 while I was attending the Flatiron Schoolโ€™s full-stack software engineering bootcamp, but I didnโ€™t seriously start using the platform until October of 2019.

I have been so inspired by the DEV community and cannot wait to give back to the amazing people who make DEV such a special place to be a part of.

About Me

I am an East Coast native currently residing in the mountains of Colorado.

I began as a self-taught programmer, working on open-source software over three years ago and graduated from a full-stack software engineering bootcamp a little over a year and a half ago.

Since graduating, I have primarily worked on the backend of the stack, focusing on Ruby and Rails development and I am currently teaching myself how to program in Python.

When Iโ€™m not writing code, I really enjoy reading, running, writing, traveling, and attempting to be a plant mom.

Why DEV?

My resume is eclecticโ€”I am a published writer turned software engineer, making DEV the ultimate intersection of my skills. Being able to do what I love, while still continuing to be immersed in the world of writing is a dream come true.

Coming from a non-traditional background, I cannot overemphasize how important it is to have an inclusive, supportive, and transparent community to learn and grow from, especially when youโ€™re just starting out as a developer.

Open-source software has been a large part of my journey as a developer. I first learned how to program through an open-source community and I began contributing (albeit, very minimally) to open-source within my first few months of programming. The open-source community was what made me feel comfortable as a new developer and helped me grow into the software engineer that I am today. Giving back to the community that gave so much to me is something I hold near-and-dear to my heart.

I am so dedicated to making sure that I do my part in maintaining what makes DEV the amazing platform that it is.

If you have questions, tips on how to care for succulents, or just want to get in touch, feel free to message me or email me (julianna@dev.to)! ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป

Welcome to the team! We are delighted to have you join us.

As an English major and aspirational writer, I'm especially excited to talk about all of that with you whenever you have some time to step away away from the codebase.
