Heyow I'm Michael, right now I'm a fulltime web developer. I want to get into freelancing and writing about my experience!

I would love to give back to the community by writing about my experience.

Right now I'm posting mostly on Instagram @lampewebdev.


Hi there, nice to meet you! Your instagram feed is awesome.


Thank you! Much appreciated!

Nice to have so fantastic people like you here too!


Hello! I'm Arnelle, a fulltime Web developer (mostly focusing on the frontend). Right now I'm into VueJS, and recently started learning React as well.

I have a personal blog, but looking into posting more here in the future.

Looking forward to learning and sharing more cool stuff here at dev.to! ❤️


Welcome Arnelle,

I look forward to reading your thoughts on the transition form Vue to React. I'm making a foray into React from Angular. I enjoy Angular 2+ and now I'm at a point where I'm ready to check out other frameworks. A few customers in my market have asked about Vue and so I think that will be my next look after React.


Thanks Stephen!

Will definitely write about my experience with React. I am rebuilding my personal site with React and have learned a lot from it. Still needs more practice though to get comfortable with it 😆

Vue is cool as well in its own way, totally worth checking out 👍


Hi Arnelle, 👋 to dev.to~

I can see how much effort you have put by how constantly your have shared you posts on your personal blog 😃.

You can also cross post your personal blog posts in dev.to by importing your Medium feeds (blog.arnellebalane.com/feed).

Hi Sung Kim! Oh wow that's really helpful, just updated my settings to also publish from my blog's RSS. Thank you for the tip! 👍


Hi, I'm Phil. I am a 39 year old undergraduate studying Computer Science at Sacramento State. I'm about half way through my junior year. I love math, puzzles, and solving problems in general. Starting this Spring I'll be learning about database management systems, computer organization, and software engineering, as well as linear algebra.

Outside of school, at the moment, I've been spending allot of time teaching myself about web development. Things like the basics, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and some other topics that fall under that umbrella, such as Python and Django and Flask, React, Sass/scss, etc.

I don't remember how, or where, but somehow I stumbled across this site and it seems pretty cool. For a while I was just lurking, but I though what the heck, why not sign up? So here I am!


Welcome, Phil!

What were you doing before Sacramento State?


Hi Jesse,

Before Sacramento State, and for most of my adult life, I was doing varying types of trade work. Carpentry, house painting, handyman work, etc. I owned a small business for several years doing this type of work. A few years back I was presented with the opportunity to attend school for training in any field of my choosing. I've always had a thing for computers, so I decided to give CS a go. Initially the plan was to just attend a local community college for an associates degree, but once I got going in academia I really enjoyed it. I decided to take it to the next level and go for that four year degree.


Hey there Phil, welcome!

Hope you find a lot of value with this community. I just started trying out some Django today as they use python at my work, maybe I can hit you up for pointers.


Hi John, thanks for the warm welcome! There's definitely allot to learn when it comes to Django. I'm a beginner myself, but if you ever run accross something that you could use an extra pair of eyes on I'd love to help out to the best of my beginner's knowledge!


Hello, I'm Longhi, I'm a fulltime backend developer, mostly .net. Right now I'm all into kubernetes and docker, also learning about AWS.


Welcome, Longhi!

Who do you look to for .NET inspiration? I am a fan of Jimmy Bogard, and I often find myself digging around in Damine Bod's articles and repositories.


Well I don't have one in particular but I often check Scott Hanselman blog. Also I follow Elton Stoneman for docker on Windows and I like Nigel Poulton pluralsight courses. Other authors that inspire are Martin Fowler and Robert Martin.


Welcome, Longhi! there are some people that are really into docker around here, I'm personally a fan as well e_e

Hi everyone! I'm Lauren, I'm an undergrad CSE student and Android Dev for a research lab. I just started working there a couple months ago, and it's crazy how much I've been learning. My brain feels like mush at the end of every day, but I love it! It's so cool to find this site and read about everyone's experiences, I'm bummed I didnt know about it before now. Anyways, nice to meet you all!


Welcome to the community, Lauren!

I live for that mush! Learning something new every day is the way to thrive, not survive.

Hello! I’m Lorenzo. I’m a big data engineer / programmer / computational scientist / tech geek.

Here you can find some more information about myself.

I hope I'll find the time to write a bit more about what I do and what I like here on dev.to

See you around.


Hi Lorenzo! Nice to meet you!

I'm excited to see what you have to share. Let me know if you have any questions about DEV.to or anything else!


Hello all!

I'm Bogdan, a frontend web developer at the moment, but throughout my career I have also done backend work.

My tools of choice: Laravel, vue, angular.

What brought me here is the desire to better myself in these fields, and learning about others as well.

Could someone tell me what kind of platform this is? Is it supposed to be a mix between stackoverflow and medium?



Hello to all! I'm Danny.

I'm currently a sys admin wanting to focus more on dev ops side of things by following a web developer learning path to see how everything is tied together (front-end, back-end, dev ops, etc.). This seems like a good place to get exposed to a bit of everything and share my own experiences on my personal development journey.


Hi, I'm Walter from Mexico.

I'm a 26 y/o PM.

My main goal for this year is to learn to code so I can deploy my own products. My current stack is nothing fancy, just HTML and CSS.

Before I move into JS I decided to do a real project and that is my personal website, you can see the work in progress here.

I've been lurking the Dev community for a while, mainly reading some awesome posts, but now I'm going to interact and maybe publish some stuff too.

If you guys want to connect on Twitter, please let me know :)


Hello folks,
I’m Fakhrulhilal, a .NET developer. I love to code in Microsoft stack and javascript also. I see many tutorials from this site. That brings me here. If you want to talk about azure devops and selenium in .NET, please bring me in. Let’s share experience together.


Okay! Hey everyone! according to my bio, that's who I am and what I do :).
I joined dev together so I can be able to reach out to many people as possible. Ehh! planning on writing some topics on design and the web generally. I am currently dating 'React' I broke up with 'Bootstrap', and yeah 'Vue' is my EX so we still meet. CSS>JS>SASS>AdobeXD>Photoshop are my good buddies. I'm planning on chilling out with 'Gatsby', 'webassembly' and random stuff. Nice to meet you all!!! you are wonderful and I'm AWESOME :).


I look forward to following your posts and learning more about design topics.


Hi all,

I'm Max, a long time freelance developer, used to be web development, but now I'm primarily involved in back-end python development for data management, devops, and privacy/security, with bits of web on the side. I'm wanting to learn javascript, and generally up my game, so this seemed like a great community in which to dive in.


Hi there, I'm Femy. I am a WordPress Developer looking to improve my JS skills for the new year. I work at a design studio building WordPress websites from their design mock-ups.

Hi Guys !!

My hobbies are stock Market investment and financial planning advisor


I'm Daniel. I'm a senior dev/consultant that's doing their best to live up to the title.

I'd love to solidify my skillset and streamline my workflow. At the moment, everything feels 'effortful' (oppose to being effortless).

Trying to balance work & fun in developing, I'm losing passion my passion for problem-solving. Everything feels like a task, instead of something I enjoy.

I wish to resolve this. Would DEV be helpful? We'll see!

Hope to get to know you all!

Hi my name is Ger and I am currently juggling, studying, working and being a dad. Loving all of it but feel the pressure time wise with the study.
Joined here for insight, help, others experiences and hopefully to be a contributing member some day.

Want to work as a programmer soon but have to finish my studies first.

Hope everyone is having a good start to 2019, best decision I have made today to join Dev.to.


Hello, everyone! Peace be upon y'all! My name is Mansoor Ahmad, but my online pseudonym in Crescive Delta! I'm a teenager who really likes front-end development and am doing my best to learn it as well as I can. Currently, I know HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript (up to ES6, but not all the features).

Currently, I'm learning React and planning to learn CSS Grid & Flexbox as well. I also plan to finish learning all the new JavaScript features, like async & await and so forth, so that I don't have too much trouble developing UIs in React. I also plan to start writing on publications like Medium & Dev.to so that I can expand my knowledge base while teaching others as well.

I love programmer humor, food, and coffee. If you guys have any of those at your disposal, feel free to tweet me @Crescive10.

Happy coding to everyone!
