FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi 👋, im a frontend developer from germany (cologne).

Most of the time i work with javascript (a lot) (React, React-Native). I also do some occasional backend stuff (Rails, PHP). We build a lot of Administration tools and mobile Apps for our customers.

In my spare time i love to discover and learn new languages/technologies like Swift, Elixr, ReasonML or fiddle around with my workflow/setup (vim (we are in an on/off relationship 😄), atom, terminal, ...). So im always on the lookout for interesting blog posts/videos or repos.

When im not coding for work or on some of my many (of course never finished) side projects 😄, i like to golf, run and mountainbike.

Nice to meet you all 👋
(I'm always happy if i can help others, so feel free to ask.)

 

Hello! Great to meet you! Wow, may I know how do you manage to pick up so many languages? As I'm new, and I was quite comfortable with HTML, CSS and Javascript, but then when I pick up React because I wanted to use GatsbyJS for a project, I feel like what I've learned in JavaScript was like a fragment of what's needed.

 

Hi! Nice to meet you too!

Javascript is like 90% of what i do all day. So the other languages i "learned" over time with sideprojects or for smaller projects at work where i could experiment a little bit. (Though im not nearly as comftable with Swift, Rails, PHP or ReasonML as i am with JS ofc)

It gets easier over time to pick up new languages, especially when they are similar to your "main" coding language.
But there are also languages that i just cannot really get the grasp of, like ObjectiveC. (tried so many times 😄).

React just takes a little bit to get used to and understand how to "think" in react components, but once you get it, its so much fun!
Have fun with React! (and Gatsby ofc)
