Hello! My first programming language was Ruby. Think it really was the best starting programming language for me because it is:

  1. reads kind of like English
  2. doesn't require understanding too many symbols to start
  3. has an overall wholesome and kind community

I have high hopes for my next language, but it'll be fun to play around with either WebAssembly (I think it's a language?) or Rust.

I just became certified as a full stack developer @ Free Code Camp. My first language was HTML, of course, but I'm currently working on learning JavaScript in depth and seeking my first dev job on the Front End. On that note, what's the best way to find a remote job?
Thanks for all the great advice already. Keep up the good work!

Did you use anything to supplement the React portion? I feel like I need something outside of the curriculum to get up and going on that cert!

I just tried looking for help on the FCC forum and then googling the sections if I couldn't find the answer. What really got me through a good portion of FCC was Colt Steele's Web Developer course on Udemy. It's only around $10 last I checked. Also, I just thought "If HTML and JavaScript had a baby, it would be React." My mind is funny that way. :D

Hey, I'm sorry I didn't get back to you. I haven't been on here that much. I don't know many other resources that are free other than Free Code Camp. I'm currently taking Flatiron School's online Software Engineer boot camp. It has a React section I'll be working through. If your looking for concentrated courses, I'd check Udemy courses. They're affordable with great content. Also, check out Free Code Camp's Youtube channel. Good luck!

Hello there. I was introduced to this site by a friendly WebDev who gives me advice sometimes. I'm currently studying HTML/CSS/JS, did some courses in person and will begin watching online ones to carry on with the learning. I pretend to work on the Back-End too someday, maybe with PHP, but right now I got my hands full.

Hope to have a good time here and not be a pain in the ass.

Hey guys. I found this site through people talking about it on Twitter. My first language was Java in college. I'm currently mostly working in Lua for a WoW add-on and C# for a few other personal projects relating to game development.

Hey all!

To introduce myself: I'm a first year MBA student at Stanford currently, coming off of a five year career in tech finance, most of which I was a venture capital investor investing in enterprise software and consumer internet companies. Prior that I graduated with a degree in Economics from Yale University.

I have always been a huge tech nerd - building desktop computers, coding up websites as a kid, and most recently self-teaching myself Python and the various machine learning / deep learning packages (Sklearn, PyTorch TensorFlow).

I am passionate about using software and machine learning to make human beings more productive in what they love doing.

To that end, while an investor I lead investments in incredible developer tooling companies like GitLab and Epic Games (known for both Fortnite and the Unreal Engine).

Look forward to interacting with all of you!

Hi. I began programming almost a year ago and recently completed a programming bootcamp and General Assembly. While I'm still very much an amateur, programming, the web, and computer science fascinate me and I'm eager to learn as much as I can (and hopefully get a great job in the process!). Most of my experience thus far has been with Javascript, but right now I'm working on learning Python. My academic background is in international studies and human rights so I'm also interested in how to secure our data and make the internet a safe, productive space for everyone.

Hi everyone

I discovered this platform via Twitter and I've already read a lot of interesting articles here, so I thought it's about time that I become part of it.
I've been working as a software engineer for about 7 years, starting with Java and now working on NodeJS/Angular projects.

I just started to learn Kotlin in my free time and I love it from the beginning (is anybody else here also using/loving it?).

My plan is to publish some articles here on about Kotlin to get a deeper knowledge of the programming language for myself and to hopefully give something useful back to the community here.

Looking forward to exciting discussions with you guys.

Hi there,
My first programming language was python... at first I thought I could not understand anything, but then things starting making sense and that's when I knew that I wanted to be a web developer; so I began learning html, css and javascript... I completed Udacity's front-end web developer nanodegree (as well as their introduction to programming nanodegre as well) and did many of their other curses, which I found very enlightening.
I want to fully become a front end web developer, and I'll begin applying to jobs this year.
I am now starting to learn react which is looks like it's going to be a fun ride! :D!!

Hey 👋

I'm Nicolas, web developer in a start-up called Busbud, living & working in Montreal, Canada 🇨🇦

Mainly doing JavaScript front & back, but playing with Elixir & Elm from time to time and tried different others in the past (PHP, Ruby, Python and a bit of Java). I'm really into "how to build maintainable software" subjects (aka Software Craftsmanship) and always curious to learn more about functional programming, reactive programming and the like.

I regularly came here to read interesting articles on software development. I also use to blog on my personal website and re-publish the articles on Medium to connect with a broader community. But I'm tired of the writing experience of tech articles on Medium, so I decided to give a shot… And wow! Markdown, code highlighting… That's what I was looking for – thank you!

My first programming language was actually plain HTML/CSS with sprinkles of JS/jQuery – yup, essentially front-end integration. The next one would probably be Elixir, but I'm happy with JS/TS too 😄

Hello, I have good experience in Front-end development but I am not a good developer. I have worked more than hundred websites and applications. But it was basically a maintenance work and sewing the holes, not real programming.
So, I want to learn real programming, first I want to make myself well handled in OOJS. Then Angular and React.
Please help me out with more helpful feeds.

Thanks in Advance to everyone in the forum.

Hi! My first programming language was JavaScript and then I moved to C#, so I got to experience the difference between dynamic and typed languages right away. I'm hoping to go more in-depth with .NET Core this year as I am mostly a Linux user at home and love that its cross-platform. I'm also learning more advanced vanilla JavaScript.

I heard about Dev.To on the Coding Blocks podcast and I'm glad to be here. Hoping to learn a lot from the community and contribute some knowledge.

Hello, there!

I am an iOS developer who, surprisingly (to others), uses Emacs (Spacemacs) almost all the time for development, switching between projects, doing git. What amazes me about Emacs/Spacemacs is how easy it is to add a piece of functionality and how discoverable everything is (you can check out the source code of Emacs's built in functions easily)!

Anyway, hope you have a good day. Ciao!

I started programming at 7 and still love it at 32. My first language was Motorola 68k assembly followed by Amiga E and Pascal. I've been using Linux for 16 years. I'm experienced in C, C++, Python, and Ruby and have worked on distributed file systems, databases, networking infrastructure, desktop and web apps. I also have an MSc in maths.

I'd like to focus on learning three things:

  1. Continue mastering software development fundamentals and applying them in my work, whatever the language.
  2. Learning (UX) design to become a developer.
  3. Learning a language unlike the mainstream, e.g. Nim, Rust, Crystal, Haskell, etc.

I'm happy to be part of this community.

Syed Bhai

Hello everyone! I am Syed Kaleem from India. I am a Back-end web developer. I deal with Java and MySQL.

I stated coding way back in 2005(I was 10 years old) and QBASIC was my first language(I am guilty of using GOTO statements).

I then moved over to C and stayed there till I got a job as a web developer. My greatest regret is not moving beyond the algorithms and logical problems in C, had I known C was used to write most of the software we use, I would have taken a very different approach to coding. Not just as a tool to solve maths.

Fully aware of my past mistakes, I am now learning Rust. My aim is to build tools and document them and may be, if they are good enough, share here.

Hi everyone,
I registered here after reading a post from a member (Danny Dore) who was suggesting resources on learning programming for free.

The first language I was introduced to was C#, which is very demanding syntax-wise... I am very interested in front end development and have started freecodeCamp a while ago...
I would like some suggestions on how to prepare for an internship interview, as I feel soo "not ready" even almost graduating from a technical level study in computer programming.
I have learned .NET, PHP, C#, HTML CSS, Java, Android development, SQL... Yet I feel myself not knowledgeable enough to brag about any... Would that be a normal beginners' feeling?

Hope to have some insight from most experienced programmers here.

Hi, there!

I am an iOS developer but, fun fact: most of the time I use Emacs (Spacemacs) to do development work. :P
I love how easy it is to work with multiple projects and languages within the same editor, how easy it is to do git with magit, how everything is so discoverable, how I can use VIM keybindings and have all the helpful plugins in one editor. I guess that's why people would say "Emacs is an operating system."

I have a specific vision for how I see WebAssembly disrupting software development across the board. I've been spending countless hours in my personal time to work towards this end, myself. I'm very excited to see how we will solve very cool problems with a unified platform. With WebAssembly, WebGL/WebGPU, WebSockets/WebRTC, the web has evolved way past a simple document sharing platform, and WASM is a huge step towards a true application platform.

Anyways, I'm excited about it, and I'm just looking for ways to constantly be learning more about it, and perhaps even share some of my own experiences.

Hey, all! I've been in web development and software engineering for about 12 years, but I just recently decided to join here as I've been tinkering with some IoT projects at home.

My first programming language was actually TI-BASIC for the TI99 system back when I was a kid. I have evolved quite a bit, and I currently write JavaScript for all the things here at Disney: from serverless infrastructure solutions to render platforms to front-end web applications.

I don't really have a "next" on my radar yet, because there are so many aspects of JavaScript I still don't know after all these years!

I'm fairly new to software development. I tinkered around with programming a bit in college (C++, MATLAB) but attended a bootcamp and became a full-fledged Java developer just about 9 months ago.

I love everything about programming (back-end especially) and am honestly a little overwhelmed by the amount of things I would like to learn. For now, I am just trying to start building my online presence with a personal website and maybe a few blog posts here or there.

I love the variety of posts on here, keep the knowledge flowing people!

Hi I'm a government software engineer trying to keep my coding skills relevant in an age where technology is changing at an ever quickening pace.

I started learning to code in 1985 while attending college, using a main frame (HP2000) coding in COBOL and FORTRAN. I finally graduated college after a long hiatus in 2006. I have worked in both the hardware (electronics) as well as the software realms of computing. I am sort of a “jack-of-all-trades”.

Joshua Graham

Howdy. I started developing apps in 1996 and I've been doing it ever since. These days I work full time remote and spend a lot of my time managing projects, dev teams, designing architecture, etc. At the moment I'm working mostly with C#/Javascript/Typescript/Angular/React.

I've spent a lot of my career working fairly independently, which has suited me as someone who's never been particularly outgoing. However, I feel like I should always be looking to improve myself in a variety of ways. So I'm focusing more on meeting, working with, helping and learning from other people.

Some (possibly) interesting personal notes: I'm an American expat living in England (for nearly 14 years now). I'm working on a new podcast about building software. I'm also a hobbyist photographer and love spending my time taking pictures of things I find beautiful while hiking/biking/running.

Now I've rambled on a lot, so I'll leave some room for others!

Jason from NY/NJ. I have been an email developer since 2013, although I have continued to work on Java and my Java schooling. That is where I truly want to be, whether it's Java web services or, front end, backend, or nothing but gui developing.

My truly first language was TI basic long ago in my TI 99/4A. Although when I went back to school in 2009, it was Java and JavaScript.

I am a rabid reader, passionate outdoors-person, guardian of 3 kittens (read: servant) and home baker. I married my best friend, finally on our 15th anniversary. I love coding very much and want to leave a better world than the one we're living in now.

Thank you!


PS sorry if I babbled, it's a char flaw, or gift if you're generous.

Helloo,i'm new here. I'm a Software engineering student. It's been a year now since i've began studying web development. I've chosen the path of Javascript after some researches on Google. I'm working now with Angular 7 and preparing a Coursera certification in it. I'm looking on learning React and Node.js in next months. And i'm also looking for a summer internship in any company working with these Javascript and Typescript frameworks. I would be glad if you help me in my career or my learning path. Thanks for your advices in advance. I have great hopes in the DevCommunity 😁

Hello Guys! My first programming language was C. I was able to quickly start programming hardware with it and bring things to life.

Then I got interested in OOP and I had to pick up C++ especially because it felt and sounded like a level 2 for C, which is kinda correct. I picked up Java at my first internship and moved on to Python after I realized I could not easily develop a neural network and do data analysis with Java for my final year project then, even using NeuroPH. I realized how much I was missing with the whole pip install scipy and scikit. Fast forward to early 2016 I discovered TensorFlow.

I am looking forward to picking up GoLang.
