Hello fellow devnauts,

Just signed up. I've been a dev for over a decade now! I've recently been looking for communities to connect with other likeminded people. Happy to see how kind everyone has been with the likes and unicorns and whatnot 🤘😁

If you like cannabis and you code, hit me up! ✌️😚💨 I'd love to see what kind of dank code you're creating.

I want to write an app with React Native but I need to do more in C++ first (I need it for school). But I think I will start building the app soon :) Will be something more private I guess but who knows what lies ahead?! :D
I wish you a lot of fun with your projects and of course at freeCodeCamp! I enjoyed learning there about web technoliges a bit too :) (not finished though - ha I'm such a slug)

Yeah! me too 😋 I also wanted to make Native app in the near future, but since I feel more comfortable using Vue, probably will use NativeScript 🤝

Bests coding ;)

Yo!
My name is George,
Just another big dreamer - little doer here.

Was in the IT field back in my high school, and didn't like code at all!
I've tried bunch of stuff, artistic mostly but left them half-way through.
Then I wanted to try and study something in the field of nature and forestry.. but being honest with myself, i can't even stand reading biology, geography and so on ^
Plus i was/am poor af, if you pardon my language. But that's another story.

So I decided to give code a chance after watching YT videos, reading articles, understanding that its probably the most wanted profession out there right now, etc.

Now I realize that, basically code IS Art.. tell that to someone that doesn't know a bit about it, and they will be afraid of it and tell you it's a bunch of lines-of-ultimate-frustration.
That's what i thought back in school too.

Nevertheless, gladly i got hooked with it ^ So from now on i want to make a turn in my life and finally develop a skill, so that i can too, contribute out to the real world and not be a little doer any more. (Tired of being a senseless waiter too.)

I am still in the "tutorial" part though, Web development is what i chose, after trying Java and Android as well.
I know it's a hard and long way to go, but then again... what isn't?

Looking forward exploring code with you guys, and i wish to all of us, to never lose hope and keep trying!
Stephen Hawking despite his hardships, found the courage and the motivation to become great!

Thanks _^

Hi. I'm new here, but not to coding. I believe I'm better than average, but I'm still only a mediocre programmer. I like Occam's razor, not only when seeking explanations, but also when building things; simplicity makes code, documentation, and licensing better. On that note, I think I'm done.

Hi everyone. You all can call me Drew. I'm from Quebec and I'm currently back at school in Sofware Engineering. I've been working as a developer for 8 years, primarily in Web.

I'm currently working on DevOps stuff, mainly trying to figure out how to use SaltStack in a process-oriented manner, meaning that installing and configuring software is one process of many others that a DevOps need to overcome: manage and test backups, update system, transfer services to other VMs, etc.

Have fun :D

Hello, I'm a 16-year-old high school in Taiwan.
I started to learn programming when I am 16-year-old, because I want to write my own plugin for Minecraft which is my favorite game.
So I start learning Java, and finally create a first plugin.
After that, I met JavaScript, which is my favorite programming language.
I like it because it is so freedom and easy, I don't need to write a lots of classes if I use JavaScript.
Currently, I also working on some tiny js library on GitHub because I feel satisfaction.

Sorry for my bad English...

Greetings and Salutations,
I'm a technophile since my dad bought me my first Heathkit electronic kit. Later my step-dad introduced me to Apple II and original IBM personal computers. From there, I've assembled PCs, networked them using Lattisnet and Netware, on to Windows 3.11, servers, interwebs, virtualization, security and beyond. Decided that just keeping them running and connected wasn't enough and started writing software. Haven't stopped. Still learning. Came here to network and share.

Hello everybody!

This is the first step I take to develop a new view on learning and helping others while doing so.

I haven't been involved in any online movements so far and i regret doing so.

This is such a good opportunity to learn and to connect with others in a fun way.

I plan on writing about stuff I learn along the way and also provide feedback on stuff that I am already good at.

Looking forward for this journey with you guys.

Hello people, first of I love the fact that this is in Consolas font-family. I'm Divyesh 22 y.o. I've completed my Bachelors in ICT ( information and communication technology which is basically all the Computer Science courses plus few electronics)

University messed up my grades so had to lose 4 job offers on campus and had to come home since then I have been learning practicing , DS & Algorithms with Python on geeksforgeeks.org , and going through FreeCodeCamp for web development lead me to learn more about Backend development. So I learnt Django Python and created my simple blog site, you guys can see it here: blogbuster.pythonanywhere.com and now playing around with Node.js creating simple webapps like login-signup and blog site.

Would love to be a part of this community and learn from you all

I've been a dev then sales engineer, but I'm getting a little bored and demotivated lately, and I joined to look at and participate in interesting discussions.
