Hello everybody! I am new to programming and currently dabbling in Python. I am passionate about Wildlife Conservation and Carbon Management and want to create tools for both.
Any tips on projects/people to follow are welcome.

Hi! I heard about dev.to from the podcast Ben did on The Changelog back in August. I've been getting into Medium lately, and loved the idea of something like Medium, but even more focused on software engineers.

I am a Computer Science major and former kid who loved programming who has worked in various multidisciplinary roles over the past decade, but is now excited about getting back into programming and becoming a full-time software engineer. I have a broad range of experience and a handle over the fundamentals, but am now immersing myself in modern software development tools, frameworks, and practices.

Hi everyone! I'm Marissa, a software engineer in the frozen flat tundra of Fargo ND. When I'm not at work (anyone else use Thingworx?) I'm often working on various web dev side gigs. On summer weekends you'll find me running the tower computers for the timing system at the local drag strip.

I've been reading here for a while and finally got around to making an account. Everyone seems pretty cool and I'm looking forward to sharing neat ideas.

My current main side project is a suite of tools for DMs for D&D. It's small but it's cathartic to work on something different from what I do at work.

Hi All

I am using the Facebook Graph API to post the link on the Facebook page.

For that, I have generated the "page access token" which is used as the parameter when hitting the API to post the link on the page.
It is working fine.

is it okay to push the access token in git repository by the security perspective or is there any better way to implement it such as getting the access token from the backend using the API call?

Can anyone please help here?


Hello everyone. I'm Remco Buddelmeijer from Amsterdam, Holland and I am currently a software developer for NEP Group Inc. where I mainly focus on media and broadcasting services.
I am currently in love with making microservice based applications which help the Dutch television branch. Which is gladly enough also my current job.

For the past 7-8 years, I have been a (Java) Developer where I mainly focussed on making anything that came to my mind and anything that I loved. From Minecraft (Bukkit) plugins to big applications running for corporations.

I found dev.to a couple of years ago through Twitter and loved it ever since. And I hope to enjoy this as long as possible (and mostly to help others while being here).

Currently, I am learning more about Cloud-based applications where both architecture and low-level test-oriented programming comes to mind. Working with both CI/CD and Kubernetes has been a blessing for me.
I love to write (sometimes a bit too much) and can lose track in that, which might happen here (oops).
Next to that my passion is in embedded programming where anything is possible (no matter how big).

With being 20 years of age, I am currently the youngest programmer at my company and I am very happy with what I have achieved to this day.
Feel free to ask me any questions about my experiences as a (quote on quote) "young" developer at a corporation, as I will be writing a post about this in the near future.


Hi, I'm a scientist (chemical, biochemical) who has always worked with various streams of data covering a range from various types of spectroscopy and mass spectrometry to data from longitudinal drug studies. Eventually, the data rate/volume became so high with improved instrumentation and other efficiencies that I needed to learn programming to scale my work. I currently do work related to health, including data engineering, data science, machine/deep learning in the health, infectious disease, and weight loss spaces (chatbots for the latter case). I'm very interested in ML/DL projects as well as improving my dev/data ops and signal processing skills. My main language is python, though I have some proficiency in R. Just to keep it real (grew up on the command line in pre-hard drive era of computers), I use VIM as my IDE :).

Hello everyone. I'm Samuel Okolo from Nigeria. I studied Mechanical Engr. at school. But today, I am deeply in love with the 21st century trend which I believe is programming. I've learnt up to PHP and I'm presently working on a project with Laravel 5.7; and you know what? It's fun doing the project. I also have the plan of learning Python/Django after my Laravel projects.

In addition, I have the dream of learning Ethical Hacking and Android Development in the nearest feature too.
Your career advice and help will be gladly appreciated.
I joined via Twitter and am glad to be here.
Best Regards.


Hi guys! I'm Dmitry, a software developer from Russia.

I've been coding since I was 10. I had my first Spectrum ZX-80 computer, with no HDD, no Internet and no network at all, only 48kb of RAM and the floppy disks! :)

Many years have passed since then, and now I'm coding on Python with huge amount of data and computing resources.
I also enjoy the world of IoT, such things as Arduino, Raspberry PI, etc.

My second passion is traveling. I've already been to 20+ countries and I'll keep moving forward to the new ones.

I'd love to share my experience with you!

Hey Everyone! I found dev.to through a freeCodeCamp Medium article, and I'm so glad I did! I'm on day 6 of #100DaysofCode and I'm excited to be starting this journey.
