My name is Shawn Reisner and I'm a full-stack JavaScript expert. When I was learning JavaScript a number of years ago I read an article, maybe posted by @thepracticaldev or @bendhalpern, on how they made dev.to so fast. I've stopped by a few times since and decided to create an account a few weeks ago and start writing some tidbits of what I know to give back to my community.

My favorite weekend activity is my Saturday work sesh at Horizon Line Coffee in Des Moines, IA, my hometown! It's the most productive 8 hours of my entire week.

You, reading this, yes, you, check out my article titled A Quick, Practical Use Case for ES6 Generators, and if you like it, give me a follow! Or at least a heart. You can spare one measly heart, right?


Hey Shawn! Here's a question for you. What inspired you to become a full stack JavaScript developer? Why not some other language?


I'm not sure if I have a good answer for this. I use JavaScript because it's the language of the web, and I have the most fun building things for the web. Sorry for a lackluster response!


hi, I am Winnie Akello from Uganda, Africa.I am in college studying a non-tech related course but i love to code. i am currently teaching myself how to program in python.what brought me here is,i want to learn everything code and interact with the community.I believe i will find this here.


Hello Winnie, I've similar background with you,still in college but really love to code. I'm Nigerian and studying a pure science course. I started coding this year picking up javascript in bits for use in browser env and nodejs.
I hope you enjoy your time here.


Most definitely...thank you so much for reviewing my thread and am so glad that we identify on the same. i am looking forward to getting the best out of this!

awn!me too.
Are you into any beginner project yet? or you are just getting a hold of the language...?
"\ /"
_/ _...................................salam.

yessss,yes! There's this project that i am currently working on. Its my first ever and super interesting already. Begun this week!


Welcome! Awesome, Python is a solid choice, stick with it and have fun.


Hey Winnie! Great to see some students here ✨


No need to worry; I guess you ended up at the right place <3<3<3


Hi, I am Sung 😁

a software developer from NYC 🍎.

✒️ I signed up last year but not sure what brought me here due to lack of 1/2 year activity 😅😝

📚 Currently learning GatsbyJS & Styled Components.
But planning to learn Docker, PWA (Progressive Web Apps) & Elixir.
(I've been a .NET developer and want to focus more on front-end)

😂 Fun fact? (more like hobbies)
I like manga, anime (<-- I will list if anyone's interested), Japanese light novels (translated in Korean) & online Korean fantasy novels (Munpia).
I used to collect figures but stopped for financial reasons.

During weekends, I read, write a blog & code and catch up with Korean variety TV 📺 shows (Running Man, 2 days 1 night, I live Alone, etc).


Elixir developer here. In fact I just dived into it few months ago and fell in love with the language. I'm currently developing my first project.
If there's a way I could be helpful to you, let me know.


Thank you Juan.

Are there any communities (slack, forum, etc) that might help?

and I'd love to check out should you were to write about Elixir and you experience with it so far 😉

You should look at the ElixirForum (elixirforum.com). Also, I'd suggest you join the ElixirLang channel on slack (elixir-slackin.herokuapp.com/). In there you'll find topics both for begginers and advanced coders. Also, you could follow me on twitter (@JPYamamoto9), I usually post interesting articles every one or two days from the elixir community.
Spanish is my first language, but I'm looking forward writing my first article in english about elixir one of these days, I'll let you know as soon as I do.
Any help you need understanding Elixir concepts don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you so much, Juan for the resources mentioned 🙇

I've recently purchased Programming Elixir by Dave Thomas and hope to get started with it soon.

And I will keep monitoring your twitter for the update & looking forward to your articles :)

That's an excellent book. Great purchase. Also, you should read Metaprogramming Elixir once you finish.


I am also an Anime fan! Please post a few favorites :)


Hi @robotjulia .

Here are my favorite animes.

  1. Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch - The very fave ❤️
  2. Mobile Suit Gundam 00 - DNot a fan of Gundam series but this was great.
  3. Darker than Black - Mysteries & Actions
  4. To Aru Majutsu no Index - Story is great with this one
  5. Uchuu no Stellvia (the main protagonist, She can write code overnight without a single bug! Wow! 😲)

I didn't mention other classics like GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka), Cowboy Bebop, and Evangelion as they are liked by all in general

If you want to know more (such as my first anime/manga) I will list as well

I've been tracking my list on MAL since 2009
(MyAnimList) but it's been locked out after a week long shutdown (been trying to recover).

I've also written a .NET Frame library, MyAnimListSharp to call MAL library but can't update it as I have no access to it any more.

And here is the YouTube playlist of my fave anime songs.

Now, it's my turn to ask YOU 😛.

What are your favorite animes/mangas?

My favorite series has to be Ghost in the Shell. I also enjoyed Darker than Black :) To tell the truth I haven't really tracked all the anime I have watched... I used to watch a ton. Let's see, I also liked Attack on Titan but it does get tiring chain watching too mank episodes. Lucky Star is best comedy but not every guy thinks so.

Thank you for posting your anime list! I started watching Uchuu no Stellvia ;)

All animes mentioned are great.
It's just that we don't have enough time to watch'em all 😉.

Stellvia might be old (15 yo) but I hope you enjoy it 😎⭐️


I had a quick look at your blog and I found it quite interesting !!
What are some Korean TV shows that you'd recommend ??


Thanks @karenbvh for the interest 🤡.
I've been trying to blog once a week for few years 😎.

Korean 📺 shows?
Here are some I watch weekly (preference in ⬇️ order)

  1. I Live Alone (나 혼자 산다) - Airs on Friday Night.
  2. Knowing Bros (아는 형님) - Airs on Saturday Night.
  3. 2 Days & 1 Night (1박 2일) - Airs on Sunday Night.
  4. Running Man (런닝맨) - Airs on Sunday Night.
  5. My Little Old Boy (미운 우리 새끼) - Airs on Sunday Night.

There used to be a show called, Infinite Challenge, which aired for 10+ years but ended a few months ago (To whet your appetite, check out some Jack Black eps) <- this will always be my favorite TV show ever.

For now, my current fave ♥️ is "I Live Alone", which is a show about people living alone. It's the chemistry between each participants that's really enjoyable (not to mention their daily lives).


Hello! I have a friend who has been working with elixir for few months now and he has said nothing but good things about it!

ps. Your blog looks great!


Hi there, Tuomo.

That makes me want to ditch learning Docker and dive into Elixir
Any problem your friend ran into while working with it by chance?
AFAIK, Functional Programming requires a brain-rewire for OOP programmers

And thank you for checking out the blog, mate 🤡

Nothing specific problems AFAIK but you are right, he said the same thing that it requires a brain-rewire :P And also that at first it might be a bit hard (especially if you are coming from OOP world) but once you "get" how things are done in Elixir, it's just gets so much better!

Ah, it sounds challenging (but I wouldn't run away from one).

lol you don't really need a complete brain rewire. started learning elixir a month ago and coming from oop (python) it has been great. the syntax ain't that bad and you can always get help from the elixir forum whenever you stuck

I was reading a chapter on List & Recursion (Programming Elixir by Dave Thomas).

Implementing map wasn't so bad but reduce required some change in thinking. (And mapsum doubly so 😛)

But it's been a fun experience.


Hi, I am Vignesh :-)

I am a Software developer and currently working for Logistics Company.

I am primarily a backend JAVA developer working in Spring Boot, Docker. I am currently learning React and I would like to spend time with it.

My favorite activities are drink coffee, code and ride my motorcycle.


Hey Vighneshwar, I am also Backend Java Developer. Could you suggest me some good place to start learning Docker?


Hello name is Devon I would like to call myself Automation Engineer/Cloud Architect vs DevOps Engineer as I think the term is over used. I have a background in Java Development but I would not call myself a Java Developer but my focus is to become better at Node.js and Golang ..


Hey Devon,Could you tell me what path you folloed to become Cloud Architect?


Hi, guys!

I'm appreciated you cut me in!

I'm a front-end developer from Ukraine. In general, I have a knowledge and experience in the maintainable CSS and OOP JavaScript.

Now I am working on the project by using Angular. So, that's why I interested in this framework. Also, I want to improve my skills in the animations by using SVG or Canvas.

In my free time, I write the songs and play the guitar. But the most beautiful time I spend with my girlfriend by playing the table games or walking through the downtown or sea. I have a cat. She is very clever and scheming ... as my girlfriend =)

What is the best place in your city that you can recommend to take inspiration from?

Hey all!

My name is George Offley and I am a software developer currently working for a manufacturing company. A while ago I came across dev.to and followed Ben on twitter and decided I really liked his platform. So now any blog posts I write are written on here first.

For work I'm learning C#. In my off time I am learning CG art and animation, C and advanced principles of Python and software development. I'm also pursuing a degree in Comp Sci while I work as a software developer. I also like playing guitar.

My favorite activity for the weekend could be anything. I suppose spending time with the family is my favorite though.


I am Sameer .
Primarily, I make machines.
I switched to fossil[1] since acquisition of Github, but scripts I use to organize and process my code are still there. Some cut and dry , some original, some buggy.


I use a shell account, to telnet to my c64 (sdf.org/~sameers/) and at times to write random stuff, since I am no longer active on Quora.

[1] I am also experimenting with p2p and shifting most content from server client model . If you are in to that, checkout
and a test repo :
git clone localhost:43110/1HzjtGpGskdCz492xH...


Hi all. I'm a developer trying to improve my skills in CSS, JS, and looking to follow some skilled and passionate people.

Hi Rachel! Front End Nanodegree sounds cool! I was recommended to do Front end work because of my creativity.

What made you interested in front end development?

-Renee :)


I'm actually interested in web dev in general- front and back end. The opportunity in Front End came to me, so I decided to stick with it. I do really like being able to see (and show off, lol), what you are doing and making, which is much harder with back end.

Also- all the courses for the Nanodegree are actually available for free (minus support and such), if you are interested in learning more at Udacity :)

That's great advice! I'll look into Udacity. I take courses on Pluralsight. If you are looking for in-depth, easy to follow tutorials with complete explanations of a specific subject, it's a great site for that! They offer courses on many different subjects as well.

Good luck with your Dev journey! :)



I am Alexis, I am working daily on autonomous multi-robot solutions using both UAVs and UGVs such as Parcel sorting, Parcel delivery, Security, Surveillance, ...
My current languages: C++; Python; Node. I am willing to improve my skills in Golang. During weekends, I mainly code/learn new things.


My Name is Cameron, I am a dev who has wondered in the wind. I have done qa and dev work. I want to be around other people doing cool things possibly share and grow. Fun fact about myself, I taught myself french with anki cards and forgot it (nobody to talk to) I also knew Spanish as a child.

My favorite weekend activity is brunch.


Bonjour Cameron,

je parle le Frençais ,on peut parler un jour.


Hello Devs !!
My name is Karen and I am student pursuing education in UX/UI design.
I would like to increase my perceptions by interacting in a virtual tech community and as I grow some expertise I would like to share new things for others.

My hobbies cozy evening nights studying with yummy drinks, I love to read non-fiction, travelling and sketching !!

Nice to meet you all :)


Hey Karen! I also came here seeking a community of developers who I could relate and connect with. I am in school earning a certificate in Web Development and another programming related degree.

How long have you been studying UX/UI Design?

I also love yummy drinks and reading! Currently I am reading some Ray Bradbury, though he is definitely fiction! I like non-fiction too.

-Renee :)


Hello Renee !! Thank you for your reply !!
I been studying design for almost 2 years but I guess I been in school longer than that hehe

I wish you the best on your path to obtaining your certificates and building on experience b we should definitely follow each other's growth :)


Hey everyone! My name is Tae'lur Alexis and I'm a self-taught Front-End Developer. I've been learning to code for almost a year. For me the best part of building an application is executing a beautiful user experience. I am in love with gradients and fonts lol.

At the moment, I am building an app centered around selling a beauty monthly subscription with React, Node, MongoDB and have been learning Google OAuth. My comfort zone is front-end and I am definitely am seeking more opportunities to dive in the backend. I think that's why I've stuck with coding more than anything. I'm always tweeting my daily progress as a developer on Twitter (@taeluralexis ). If you want to check out my portfolio site, it's taeluralexis.com <3

Things I know: JavaScript, React, WordPress, Vue, AngularJS, NodeJS, MongoDB, a bit of PHP

📚 Things I want to learn: NextJS & Styled Components, GraphQL, some application security (I have a deep interest in fintech and am curious about cybersecurity)

A fun fact about me is that I'm a night owl. My creativity is fueled at night and so I sleep with my laptop basically next to me lol. I came across dev.to just an hour ago from posting this (4 a.m.)


Welcome :) Look forward to your contributions :)


Hey all. My name is Dhaval Vyas and I am Front end developer. I have been reading a lot on Dev.to since last month. Mostly, I was coming here to read about #productivity posts for few minutes and ending up here more than I planned 😄. I really love coming back here again and again. 🙂

Currently, I am redeveloping my own website (dhavalvyas.me) with new front end tools and technologies and hoping to learn something new along the way.🤓

I have created my Todo list for 2018 and being part of a community is one of them. I also want to start writing blog post in near future.

My all time Fav weekend activity is hanging out with friends. Place doesn't matter. 🍻


Oh that's great to hear. Would love you to meet you in person if you visit Halifax. :)


Using Wordpress to blog, with integration into an existing website, and the use of React API is what brought me here. Love the info in this post: dev.to/jchiatt/headless-wordpress-...


Hello to all the community!
I am Suneet Srivastava and an Android Developer. I contribute to open source projects and is intern at one of the open-source organisation.

I am looking for job opportunities these days.!

My favourite activities are CodE, Hustle and Breathe :P


Hello All,

My name is Leon and I'm a pretend fullstack Javascript developer. I say pretend because I often find myself not really knowing what I'm doing. I started learning to code about 2 years ago, I attended a bootcamp and failed...twice. The first time, I was doing okay until midway where I was hit by meningitis and had to miss the end of the bootcamp because i was hospitalized and needed time to recover from it. They were nice enough to re-insert me into the next bootcamp available. I still failed.

So I've decided to learn to code by myself, I picked JS because I bought into the hype that it's great and all. I went from tutorials to tutorials, and then I read about Tutorial Heaven, and then I read about JavaScript Fatigue. Great!!!!!! haha

I'm sorry if I sound like a downer, but right now I'm trying to write a very simple application for my portfolio and I feel like I can't even do it. I'm tempted to load one of those udemy course again and go through it, but I know that's not the route I should be taking. It's going to take too much time too. I could've taken the time writing this post to think more deeply about how I should tackle my project, but heck, this feels relieving.

Hope y'all have a good day!


Welcome to dev.to
Do reach out to people here and ask any help u need on coding.
Ask others or read about their first time learning to code experience.

Practice and patience was my motto when I try to learn something new. I remember learning object oriented programming. Couldn't get my head around it. Was thinking why can't we just do it the C way. This was in high school and felt like coding is not for me. But with more practice reading and moreover patience I was able to to embrace it.

Let me know if I can be of anymore help.

Im sure others here will be ready to offer some help as well. So reach out .
Happy coding.

Hi! My name is Kelsey Huse. I'm originally from Oklahoma but just moved to New York City for the summer to teach a program for Girls Who Code. I've been a freelance developer for the past year, and prior to that worked as a healthcare IT consultant for 5 years. I learned to code a bit in college and am glad to have finally made a career of it!

In my professional work I have used Cordova with Angular 1, Firebase, Node.js, React, and Gatsby (love). I am currently building an AR project in React Native and learning Three.js so that I can do 3D modeling in Javascript. I'm also interested in Machine Learning, Flutter, and TDD.

On the weekends, you can find me exploring in NYC: biking and listening to music, running in Central Park, reading at a bar with a nice beer, or at a museum. I love meeting new people and I love code!


Hi Kelsey! I would love to get to know more about "Girls Who Code" ... I'm very happy for all the girls that are starting to join school here in Costa Rica in our beloved area of study... I remember when I started school there was hardly like 1 girl per class, but now, 7 and a half years later, there's a lot more girls every year working hard to become engineers, and that makes me very happy! :)


Thanks for commenting :) That's great progress!! Feel free to follow me and DM me if you want more info on Girls Who Code.


Hi Y'all!

I am Santhosh--a Marketing Executive. I fell in love with programming while doing a small project for my University on Steganography. Following "Vaidehi Joshi" led me here to dev.to--I too am trying to learn computer science from scratch. I never ever wanted to get into the field of marketin--as I wanted to become a programmer fresh out of college. But, just to have a clear perspective did some explorations for almost 3 years, then decided that marketing would be my best carrier choice and that programming would help me to be unique marketing executive. Now, trying to become a unique marketing persona, sprinkled with a lavish spread of programming.

Being a part of my church's 'Sound' team is one of my favorite weekend activities, along with eating "Special Mutton Biryani" & Playing Tennis!

Hi, my name is Jake and I'm a web designer & front end developer. I really love vue.js and it has changed the way I make websites. I mostly work with Javascript, PHP, HTML, and CSS. I mostly work on ecommerce websites, listen to podcasts & KCRW 89.9, and hang out with my family. Visit my website at jake101.com and add me on here :)


My name is Matias, I'm a software developer from Paraguay (South America). I've been writing software for around 15 years now (got involved very early, as a kid).
I currently work on Tyk, an open source API gateway that's written in Golang.

I'm also learning Rust and TypeScript to collaborate with the Deno project. As a side project I've ported some of the Deno code to Rust.
My other side project is go-dotnet, a binding generator that makes interoperability between Go and .NET easier. It's still pretty much a prototype, currently targeting .NET Core.

I'm trying to improve my writing/speaking skills, for this reason I'm planning to write technical articles in the next months and also speak at more conferences (last year was pretty active, I spoke in four different countries!).

Would love to be in touch with other developers, if you ever come to South America, feel free to ping me, you will find my details on GitHub :)


Welcome aboard! Looking forward to reading your articles!

Hey everyone,

My name is Patrick Lafferty and I'm a software developer from Toronto. By day I focus on front-end webdev work (JavaScript et al.), but by night I focus on low-level systems design and write an OS for fun. I enjoy exploring the conceptual and theoretical paths, and when faced with a problem taking the one less travelled by. I love to code, learn and be exposed to new ways of seing problems, so I'm excited to join this community and share what I know.


Hi, nice to meet you! I remember back in school when I had to finish and open source OS call NachOS... It was made for academic purposes and it's online available to download and work on it... So in my OS class we had to make it work in order to pass!! That was a fun time haha, maybe you can try it sometime... It's made in C! :)


Hi I'm Shazni Shiraz I'm still in college and I'm still a slow coder but I'm trying my best to work my way out and I've come across (C++,Java,PHP,C#,R, Dart-Just started) and now I'm facing finals so working on a project so i just kept looking for some communities to get some help and i found this cool platform :D hope to meet some awesome coding friends.

I usually watch a lotta Tv shows(a lot ;D) and listen to a lot of music(specially when i code).

I'm so excited to be here and meet new people across the globe and get to know their coding experience etc.

Thank You :)
Hope everybody's having an amazing day.


Hi everyone! My name is Eve and I am a newbie web developer currently undertaking a coding and design boot camp. I'm putting my academic career on hold for a bit (I have an M.A. in History of Design) so that I can one day develop interactive museum and library sites and apps! That's the dream anyway.

So far I've learned mostly front-end stuff (HTML/CSS, Javascript, responsive design, Bootstrap) and right now I'm working on Ruby and Sass, trying to cram as many things into my brain as possible but also trying to take a break to let things gel. I love everything I've learned so far and am excited that I found a place to write about what I learn here - don't want my writing skills to get rusty! 📝


Welcome! I love the idea of the museum apps! Theres aren't enough apps that promote culture if you ask me


Hi there, my name is Andrés Osante and I'm a beginner developer from Costa Rica. I am kind of in the middle of a dilemma since I both like Javascript and Java a lot. The web dev path seems to me as appealing as the Java development path. But I'm still too much of a beginner to know.

By now, I've done a couple of web apps where I register, modify, delete, search for, and list user data using a bit of Javascript for form validation, and a free MongoDB database for storage. Other than that, I've done some landing pages trying to implement things I learned in the @wesbos JavaScript 30 courses. I've also learned a lot from places like Codecademy, Pluralsight, and FreeCodeCamp, but I've made the classic mistake of spending my time learning and learning, and not doing enough. I plan to change that soon and I am currently making a list of projects to do by the end of September.

In Java, I'm currently writing small programs to really grasp the concept of object oriented programming. I first started doing simple stuff with simple core programming concepts, but now I have moved on to implementing other concepts such as inheritance, polymorphism, overriding and overloading etc.

I came across dev.to a couple of months ago browsing around for knowledge, and thought it may help in that aspect. I was right.

Lastly, my favorite weekend activity is surfing. Waves are beautiful here in CR, and there's some all year long.


Hi, my name is Nesli, I think I am a mom of a future software developer who is at the age of 10 now, from İstanbul, Turkey. My daughter loves coding, so I am searching for the places who can help her in her early career to develop her abilities and guide us. She is now attending Apple coding courses also going to a summer camp about it. But there is no further opportunities here. If you can advise which course she would attend first or which way should I follow to support her, it would be perfect.

My name is Kingsley Victor, a junior software developer based in Nigeria. I don't consider myself a code god or an expert. I'm proficient in Java and Spring at a considerable extent. Recently got a hang of Express JS and hope to learn Angular 6, Ionic, NativeScript, Git and Linux. My recent project was a library management app leveraging Java and Spring. I admit I still have a lot to learn though..
PS: I don't have an job yet.. Once I get a hang of the entire MEAN stack, I might decide to work as a freelancer till I get called into the industry...

Hi, I am Bertino. I am a Junior Software Engineer, but for now I haven't been given any real programming works. It is more like editing json and all. I am here with the intention to learn to code and do justice to my job title.


Hello world! Vedant here... I'm from India been coding a bit for almost 3 years now. I'm mostly into C++. But I have a fair amount of knowledge in python, Java, C(Obviously), Javascript and MATLAB. I'm currently pursuing Electronics and Communication Engineering from IIIT Delhi, India. To be honest I'm hoping to find motivation to code more without debugging frustrations. Getting versed with good coding practises and read some interesting techie stuff.
Peace! :)


Hi. I am Samia Ruponti from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I am currently working as a front-end developer in BongoBD, a leading startup in our country. I mostly work with CSS,SCSS,Javascript (the vanilla kind) and Twig. I've been meaning to learn vue.js and react.js for a while but procrastinating. So hopefully I'll finally stop procrastinating and teach myself some frameworks.

My favorite weekend activity is reading. Currently I'm in the middle of Altered Carbon Series (you might have seen the netflix adaption,but the book is much better). I am also researching universities who will accept a non-CS major in a CS masters program.

If anyone's interested, you can see some of my pens in CodePen.


Hi everyone I'm Julia, I program in Java and Python and have been doing GUI programming in Swing and Javafx. Learning blockchain dev on my own time and went from self taught programmer to second year in University. I came here looking for opportunities.

Hi, my name is Yusuf Omotoso from Nigeria. I am a computer science student interested in Front-end Development. I recently read an article here by sarah_chima which i saw the link via twitter, and that gave me an interest to reading more from here. I will like to end my 2018 as an intermediate front-end developer if not a pro in front-end development.

Thank you.


I´m Erik and I´m starting with programming. I´ve done some small programs in c# and a whole game in GameMaker. I´m currently considering starting a career as programmer, because I think this is so much fun.
I like to waste my free time on videogames, both playing and, since I know programming, making them.


Welcome Erik!

I totally agree. You'll be hard-pressed to find something more fun than writing software for a living if you ask me.


Hi there people. I am Alban, but you can call me Bani for short. I've been into programming world ever since 2006 but barely could tag myself as an expert of any subfield of it. I indulge myself into learning new things, in this case I recently started to learn React, since I'm a JS lover so to speak. I'd like to share my thoughts and also hear from others in the broadspec of programming world, especially in JavaScript and it's future.

I haven't written any article (to satisfy the reader's need) but I'm eagerly looking forward to it. Thanks for reading this, much appreciated.


Hi, I am Dallas. I am a DevOps engineer for a Japanese security firm. I found this site because of Paula's irssi's post and after some researching i thought it would be a nice place to join. Python is my language of choice but I do not get to use it at work. I prefer a linux workstation over mac or windows. I am by no means bothered by spelling (yours or mine) or proper punctuation.


My name is Joe Branch. I am new to dev.First day sorta speak. Next step is to join code academy. Never to late to learn a new skill. I'm late to the game but eager to learn. Any thoughts, recommendation, good websites for free tools, training, insight would be appreciated.


HI everyone, I am a software engineer from Uruguay, doing a master of research in Syndey @ Macquarie Uni. Will be working on formal verification of web assembly, which looks quite promising, in particular for the speed improvements it has to offer.

I am passionate about programming languages, design patterns and software architecture.

Found this resource on Twitter and seen many useful articles and links and did not doubt in joining the community.

While studying I also work for Udacity as an android mentor and reviewer, which is an amazing experience to help students doing this online courses, which by the way, I truly recommend.

I will share some of the progress on the web assembly verification for those interested and thank you all for your articles, keep up the good work!


Paul here!
Just discovered this little corner of the internet. Started my dev journey August 16th, 2016. So far I've completed a 3month dev boot camp, two 3month internships and finally landing my first dev job! I enjoy my new role and am very eager to continue to grow my new found superpowers so I can make the world a better place :D


welcome aboard! August 16th, 2016. That's a pretty specific date :-) what happened there?


On the tail end of a "Remote work jobs" google search, I decided yes I'm going to become a developer. I had this tiny notebook I'd keep with me to study whenever I got free time and the first page is dated. I looked at it a few months ago and it really grounded me. Instead of looking up at the mountain I still have to climb I look down at how far I've already come :D


Hi there!

My name is Andrés and I'm now working at web developments using PHP language. I has working with other technologies as Java, C#, Python, ... , along 20 years in my life as developer.

I hope improve my technical knowledge thanks to this community, and I will hope can help about in any way others members.



Hello, I'm Leo (leron8 on dev communities) from Mexico. Sofware dev currently working with web and mobile apps. I love Firebase, NodeJS, Ionic, Angular, and starting to love ReactJS too.

I'm a sense8 passionate fan and like to learn new tech every day!

Take a look at this site I'm collaborating in sensorium.online


I am Josh Reighley. I do training and technical support for accounting software on the IBMi AS400 platform.

I have been learning Clojure for the last 3-4 years, and write a lot of tooling to make my job easier. When a customer calls rather than going through 7 or 8 troubleshooting steps, I build a web page that runs my whole troubleshooting tree concurrently and reports back with the highlighted results.

I originally learned Visual Basic (back in college in the late 90's), and had a fairly successful small business for a while selling my programs. I have always been able to pick up any language and accomplish what I needed to accomplish (usually hacks like I described above) but I was always very pleased to stop thinking about code when I was done. Clojure is the first language that I could not put down. The more I use it, the more I want to code.


-I am a full stack developer, I have learnt a lot of things in this computer science in a very short span of time.

-Now I must share the knowledge and experience I earned to help and growth every community along with personal growth.

-I know great tools like core PHP, Frameworks( I prefer Laravel), Docker, Angular 6, node js(basics), React js, Ionic 2, Jmeter, Maven,

-I came up by searching for CORS issue medium->dev.io

-I am still passionate about music I aim little higher than my calibre.

-Teaching is my research, Music is my catalyst.

I am named "Krishnan Rohan"...


Hi, I'm Sarah. Three years ago, post college graduation, I made the switch from veterinary medicine to software development. Given my family history in tech, I guess I was always destined to be a part of this community no matter how hard I tried to deny. At last, here I am.
5 months ago someone at my current job sent an article from dev.to. It has been my favorite site to scroll through while riding the train. I want to give back to the community and support others the way these articles have helped me. @aspittel posted an article about algorithms that I really enjoyed and then I saw her personal website - wow! So fun, creative, inspiring.
I'm on a journey of creating my own personal brand, Downward-Facing Tech (Downwardfacingtech.com), under the alias Tech-Yogi. I am constantly learning about new things in both tech and general well-being, which I think a lot of people in this industry can benefit from. I have a lot to learn in the dev world, and excited to share experiences and learn from others on dev.to.
I was brought into this land as a backend developer focused on C#, .Net, Entity Framework, MVC. After crossing the seas and expanding my horizons, I am currently a full-stack developer, dabbling/drowning/flourishing in JavaScript/React and all things UI. I am interested in strengthening my front-end skills with React and getting some experience with Elixir and NodeJs... and I need a lot of help solving interview algorithm problems.


Ahh thank you so much for reading!!! Welcome! If you are interested, I'm posting code challenges every day on my Twitter and people have the coolest answers that we all discuss -- getting to see Clojure and bitwise operators today!


Hi! I'm frontend developer with Uploadcare. I live in Russia, Saint-Petersburg (beauty historical city). I created and maintain the big frontend community "SPB Frontend" that focused on networking. Also, I speaker. Now I speak only in Russia. I hope someday I'll be performing in English somewhere outside the my country.

In work I like to use React, postcss, Rollup for our npm libraries, picture tag and webp format for responsive images.

On weekends I usually coach-potate and watch serials, a lot of serials 😅

Hello all. I'm Cristian from Romania. I love building applications and diving into new or cool programming languages. I am living for java, but got to work with various stuff along the way like Kotlin, Ruby, Python and the three C's. I also love dogs, especially my own dog, Capy. So I can't wait to read stuff from all you guys, and hopefully I will manage to write something off my own, so fingers crossed. Cheers!


Hi All, I am Nitin Sharma. I just went through a post about (1/28) AWS from @helenanders26 and it was so nice to see a lot of simple to understand articles for AWS learning.

I used to learn a lot around security and automation. I am fond of AWS cloud with a Python spirited soul. I usually blog around 4hathacker.in and continue my quests in core and cloud security with a lil interest in DevSecOps.

I am a strong believer of active learning, foodie and fitness lover with a lot of dreams to achieve in this life time.
Lets see how it goes here at DEV.TO


Hi there, my name is Dmytro Rashydov and i`m a junior web developer. My tools are: Ruby / RoR / Angular / React / Vue.js / PostgreSQL and a cup of coffee. An article about Rails Presenters brought me here.

Hi, welcome! I think electronics is one of the best careers to connect with computation and coding in general terms... they are meant to be :D


My name is Abhinav Sharma and I am a full stack web developer. I was reading the Go lang article written my @rhymes and liked the UI. Started exploring and thought maybe I can write about the problems I encounter too. I will read some articles though before jotting down my own experience.

I have been working as a developer for about 3.5 years now and have a keen interest in this field. On weekends I usually spend time playing guitar or watching series/movies.


Yes please, contribute :-)

Welcome to dev.to!


My name is Vineeth Sathish, I'm a Ruby developer who can also code some JS and Clojure.
I'm from Bangalore, residing in Berlin. Hit me up if you want to hangout and drink some Beer.
One of dev.to posts on twitter got me to sign up on the website.

I'm trying to read Zen and the art of Motorcycle maintenance, see how that can be made to fit into my thinking process of programming.

I like to sit in the nice parks here in Berlin during the weekends.


I have been a web developer for many years, owned a business, worked lots of contracts and now manage a happy staff of application developers and creatives. I'm always looking for new ways to make things better — which is not to say I am swayed by trends. I believe that the best way to really learn technology is to share it with other people, and the best way to do that is eye-to-eye. But mediums like this are pretty good too.

On my off time, I like to eat ice cream, camping and playing Pokemon Go with my teenager. We are all rabid Whovians and Trekkies at my house, to the extent of designing new spaceships and printing them in 3D.


Hello folks, I am Thomas Van Roy an Integration Engineer with a passion for developing in as many languages as possible. I found dev.to by reading articles on my phone presented by Google Now. Just like many of you I loved the content and decided to join.

I am mostly here for absorbing your knowledge and I hope to find a way to give back to the community of course.

Personal interest: #linux, #JavaScript, #anyothersexydevlanguage, #basketball.


Hey everyone! I'm Navneet from India and I'm learning to be a JavaScript developer. I'm a non-CS graduate and currently getting myself some work experience. I want to learn about the international standards which can help me get a remote job. So, I'll be reading most of the blogs here.


Hello, my name is Nabil. Currently, I'm pursuing my studies in the field of Ai and Machine Learning. I encountered this website while I was searching for learning material for my subjects and turns out this website was very helpful. It contains a lot of information, from one related to my studies to something that I like to read such as people experience, tips and more. Hope I could contribute and become a part of this community.


Hi guys! I'm Ricardo Roman from Mexico I'm a software engineer on the road to be a Hustler and I joined this community to understand other developers, learn something new, get fun and practice my English :)


Hi all. I am Vladimir, JavaScript developer from Bosnia. What brought me here is that I want to learn, share experiences and give back to the community. My favorite weekend activity...I love to spend time with my daughter and grab some new technology, read some tech articles, work on my knowledge, maybe have a nice, long walk...


Hey. I'm Chile Owhondah, and I'm really delighted to be able to share what I'll be working on, and to learn from you as well.
I'm learning how to program proficiently.
I'm currently exploring Python, Java and JavaScript.
Besides programming, I love reading: poems, essays, novels and travelogues.


I'm Ryan, always been in tech to some fashion. Got a CompSci degree some years ago but didn't directly use it. Found myself not enjoying my career and wanted to get back to the techie in me I loved. Now I work on programming and design projects while trying to grow my portfolio and hone my skills.

I've been fortunate enough to work for some great start-ups and meet some amazing people. Hope to continue that here.

Happy coding


Hi am Tobi from Nigeria, new to Javascript. Sarah Chima's post on Destructuring Arrays in ES6 brought me here. Learning about using js (node) as a server side.
I love writing / reading very simple codes ...get tired when the code is complicated.

Favorite weekend activity: Watching youtube videos, reading articles on new concepts in the tech world


my name is ethan miller. im a full-stack """""engineer"""" from kansas and do it as a hobby although i want to freelance it or work for a company some day.

my favorite languages are ecmascript (js), python, c++, haskell, elixir, and go, although i stick to es and python since i do web development primarily. right now in terms of libraries im learning reactjs since everyone has been on it for a while now

my favorite things to exist are my loving boyfriend, bass guitar, and desktop. my favorite genres of music are indie, jazz, metal, and classical, although im extremely open minded. im a taurus sun, taurus moon, cancer ascendant, infp-enfp-intp-entp ball of angst. my favorite jazzer is adam neely and every time i wake up you will see me quoting the lick in some form

other than programming/scripting/engeineering, im into music (im a composer, arranger, producer, upright bassist, electric bassist, electric guitarist, acoustic guitarist, guitarist, and drummer), writer (fanfiction, poetry, lyrical work), and waste of space (i lurk forums and social media like youtube a lot and do whatever catches my tiny attention span). i also like vidya. philosophy and psychology are pretty big interests of mine as well

i do all of these things amaeturely because of my lack of direction and purpose. nobody wants to hire someone as young as me. i often do struggle with petty things like how to structure projects or be comfortable with git or whether to bite the RESTful api bullet.

if you need freelance labor for something and want to take a chance on a young person, hit me up. im very ambitious and need something to focus my energy on.


Hi! I’m Inna, I was born in Russia, Saint Petersburg and now I live in San Francisco Bay Area.

Hello! My name is William and I'm enrolled in Austin Coding Academy learning JavaScript. I'm a newbie that loves reading articles here that are way over my head. Hopefully it all comes together soon.
I am really into bowling and Netflix on my free time. It's hard to step away from studying for fear of falling behind. Let's pray it all makes sense before it's too late.


Hello everyone. I am Katherine, a jr/intermediate Software Developer from Canada. I've been around tech since I was little and have always loved it. However I am also currently in school part time working a double major in computer science and mathamatics.

My favourite weekend activity is... Working on personal software and web projects, reading documentation and dev resources, and learning new things outside of school or work. And also umm... I suppose... Hmm... Doing chores. Yes... I 'enjoy' getting chores done on the weekends... Well at least the satisfaction of knowing its done is nice. Not so much the actually doing it part... 🤔


Hello Friends, I am Prakash. I work as a senior dot net developer in Pune, Maharashtra, India. I work on C# and ASP.NET. I like learning and exploring new skills. While I was reading an article on the comparison between NUnit, xUnit and MSTest, I was brought here to this wonderful community. Thanks to Practicaldev, for offering this platform to enrich the knowledge and connect with like minded people.

By the way, I love to dance and play Cricket, Chess, Table Tennis. I also enjoy biking on my RE Desert Storm 500.



Hey all!

I'm Will and I live in Austin, TX. I have been learning web development for the past ~1.5 years after deciding to change career paths. I used to work as a business analyst for Apple but found myself wanting a more creative/rewarding profession.

I took a bootcamp to start and then landed my first freelance gig a few months after that. I'm still very much in learning mode but am excited to embark on what's next in my journey. I learned about this site through a link from a daily newsletter I get on web dev stuff (Versioning).

Currently trying to wrap my head around functional programming and also Node since my goal is to be a full stack dev eventually. Also excited about GraphQL and Gatsby.js!

Anyone have any experience with PIXI.js? I'm thinking of using it to create interactive street murals in the style of Keith Haring for my personal site. Which leads to my fun fact...

I'm also an avid digital artist and I create pretty much exclusively on my iPhone. If you have interest in checking out my work search me on Instagram: @wolfensparger

Thanks for reading!

Hello world ! My name is Simon, I am french a student in computer science from Reunion Island and I would like to pursue in Web development.

To be honest, I never wanted to be a developer, until discovering a whole new world. And now I want to learn everything... which is impossible :(

I came here with Why Bother Presenting as a Developer?.

Effectively, I'm a bit shy, and this article made me aware of the need to overcome this shyness !

Okey, now let me ask you a question :

What is important for you as a developer ? 😉


Hello everyone,

I am Jose Sal y Rosas from Peru.

I am doing web development since a while, basically LAMP, but not an expert just always learning.

I have background knowledge in php, vagrant, docker and some puppet and TDD.
Since Angular 1.x, I've been more interested in frontend technologies. I am learning Angular 6, Typescript, NodeJS and I really like Polymer, love the concept of web components.

On weekends, I read about technology, watch some movies, and since two weeks ago, I am playing PS4.



My name is Andrey Dmitrenko! I'm from Ukraine, Dnipro. My city used to be a space capital in former USSR. I'm finishing my bachelor's degree. Now I'm learning Java for backend development.

Software developer mostly using C#, SQL, ASP.NET WinForms and javascript; with some experience in SharePoint, Access and webservices.

Neither good or smart, just a code monkey - I realized that a few weeks ago.

Since this is a anonymous profile, I'll keep it short and simple.

Want to learn android and game development = but it's too expensive :(


My name is Victor Alvarado and i'm a system engineer, i'm from Venezuela. I develop with Python, PHP and Javascript. I get to this page searching about good programming practice and know @gugadev ( a good friend) bring me here to see a tutorial about nodejs.

Hi, This is Tobias, a German Software Engineer in Shanghai.

I love JS, and recently I found more and more post from this community on by facebook. and there is so much cool stuff, so I joined.

Mostly I do javascript, and I consider myself to be pritty good.

my github and npm is full of cool stuff too.
Here is my this weeks weekend project: npmjs.com/package/trompt


Hello, I'm Hugh. I just graduated from computer science, and have found this website very interesting for different articles regarding technologies I am currently using in my work. My favorite weekend activity is either skateboarding, soaking up some sun and drinking on a patio with friends, or playing soccer!


Hi I'm Teresa Schofield an electronic engineer living in the UK. I started my career as a VLSI design engineer at TI and was at Motorola automotive and in tech xfer at a university. I've been an IEEE member for 30 years and both my sons have Masters degrees in engineering and one is taking a PhD at the top uni in Europe.
I came to the Dev site because I'm naturally curious to see what progress female techies elsewhere are making and spotted an interesting AMA. I still attend many events where I am the only technical female present and find things are actually getting worse.
But still I'm incredibly optimistic and curious (about Cloud, HPC, Comms and devices/systems). This is the most unpredictable time ever I hope soon we will solve problems we have waited a long time to be addressed. So education, design, health, manufacturing, and environment are areas I tend to monitor as I'm fortunate to be able to access London and Cambridge events.
My weekends are busy with family as we've had a very tough few years with health issues. But I'm a Formula 1 fan (several teams ~half an hour from me) and I have a garden I'm trying to transform with lots of trees.


Hey guys, new blood here, found the site from twitter and already love the place. Solid community of people genuinely trying to help each other. Really is awesome.

Thanks a lot guys and can't wait to get to know some of you a little better!

Hello, my name is Brett Sullivan. I've been doing software development professionally for the last 8 years. I've mostly focused on .net development but have recently decided to try and make sense of modern javascript and the infinite amount of frameworks available.

I've recently decided that its time to put myself out there and start interacting with the dev community and meet some new folks. Maybe I'll even be able to contribute something myself one day!


Hey everyone, I am a web developer, mostly focused on frontend. I've been working for over 3 year as a web developer at a public University in Chile, until I decided to move to Europe. I am now living in Austria while learning/practicing VueJS and looking for a job.

I am currently doing the #100DaysOfCode challenge, the project I am working on is a hub of apps made with VueJS, the repo is here: github.com/pinguinosod/pinvues-hub

As some personal hobbies, I used to play D&D with some friends on my hometown, I used to play the bass, and I used to ride my skateboard. Now I walk two awesome dogs and I get paid for it (best job ever), and play with my two little nieces :D.

Hi, I'm Marco Gasi, 56 old italian who now lives in Tenerife, Canary Islands.
I started to learn programming in the far 1996, just because I was fascinated by that incredible hardware we call PC.
Now I'm a web developer, I like Php, used to CodeIgniter but felt in love with Laravel... I like Javascript and jQuery, of course and I'd like to learn amny other things, like React and React Native, Node.js, Python and... But, do you know, it's hard to me just learn what I use daily so I have to leave away everything is not immediately useful :)
For the rest, the only truth is by Neil Young: rock'n'roll can never die

Favorite weekend activity is learning new things and try to experiment with those.


My name is Ofer Gal and my 30 something years experience is mostly with the Microsoft Stack.
Last few years I am doing mostly SharePoint customization most with jQuery and Kendo-UI. This exposed me to the beautiful world of open source.

I am interested in learning the new web development trends like React MongoDB and the likes.

If someone will find me a job that will allow me to work from home, I will be much obliged.:-) I am still a fast learner and good problem solver.


Hi everyone, I'm Payton and I'm a full-stack Web developer. I specialize in PHP, JavaScript, and CSS but I enjoy getting a bit of hands-on experience with just about anything and everything (e.g. Python, C, Ruby). I took an interest in programming when I was twelve, and this year marks my ten year anniversary since I began learning how to code. 🎊


Hi there, I am just a little happy man from Odessa, Ukraine, who has passion, and an opportunity to study web development.
Love the look of the site and you in advance.
And will be happy take your advice and practice my english speaking.

I usually like to shake my head on an underground scene on weekend, often as possible.


From an announcement, VAT in Dubai is evolving with a new zero-rated educational goods and services supply policy. However, the terms and conditions chart defines that the supply must be from any of the subsequent “qualifying educational institutions.”
Nurseries, Pre-schools, Schools
Higher educational institutions owned or affiliated by Federal or Local Government
The above of the qualifying institutions can recover the VAT that they have paid on related goods, at the time of tax return filing. The educational services from the entities that are not listed above, are subjected to the standard rate of 5%.
Here you can find apt answers to the common queries that the mass is looking for since the new VAT rules. Read the blog and understand the practical details before you miss out something

Hi, I’m Aliciea from NY. I’m a super newbie to coding, in the process of learning the basics via a free bootcamp prep from FullStack. I’m trying to grasp the fundamentals before I engage in a full bootcamp program. I’m also a stay-at-home mom so an online boot camp that is free or affordable is key. Please feel free to shoot me some pointers. I’m open and excited for a new journey in coding!


Olawale Arowolo, nicknamed whales. I am a WordPress enthusiast with great interest in JavaScript. I dabbled into Data Science some months ago, but ran back to intensify my knowledge of JavaScript. I hope i have a lot to learn.


Hi. My name is Miguel Palhas. I'm a back-end developer (mostly Ruby and Elixir), currently learning a lot towards the blockchain industry.
I started out as a student of High Performance Computing & Computer Graphics, from which I still keep & use a lot of insight towards optimization & benchmarking, but above all, towards sticking to the mantra "Premature optimization is the root of all evil"

In my spare time, I'm also a wannabe game developer. A couple of years ago I was finally able to scrape some free time and publish a mobile game.

I'm also a frequent writer on my own company's blog, and an occasional public speaker.


My name is Riley Haluzak and I just finished college for my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. I am currently proficient in: Java, C++, C#, JavaScript, and Python. What brought me here was to get away from the Stack Overflow community. I just want to be able to get help for my code without being harassed.

My favorite weekend activity is hanging out and playing video games.
