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


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.


Hey, All! I'm Ryan. Formerly a data analyst, currently a software engineer. Working on a personal project that uses Python, Javascript, React, Flask, SQLAlchemy, PostgreSQL, jQuery, Jinja, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, and D3. Any tips? I'd love to hear them!

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.


Thank you, Jesse! Yes it's a great feeling!

Looking forward to learn with the community and share to the community at dev.to!



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.


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.


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!


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, 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!

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!


Hey all, I'm a new devops engineer coming from the systems/networking side of the IT world.

Hi! 👋I'm, Gulshan Saini, a full stack developer.

I transitioned from SDET(QA) profile to full stack developer in 2018. I am playing with Web Technologies(HTML, JavaScript, CSS, PHP) since year 2004 however seriously thought about moving to new role(dev) in 2017. After preparation(learning modern JavaScript) for almost a year I applied for IJP in my current organisation where I got as selected Staff Software Engineer role. I must say JavaScript has matured in past couple of years.

I would like to say thanks to everyone who, made free content available on sites like dev.to, medium.com, youtube.com, egghead.io to name a few, that helped me in grasping new technologies and clearing my doubts.

Why I joined dev.to?
I thought it's time to give back to the community by sharing my knowledge/experience while I still keep learning from you awesome folks on web.

I even write at my personal blog
you can follow me on twitter

Hi all have been a mail administrator on the lotus notes domino platform for nearly 17 years and coder in lotus-script ,formula, and cobbled JavaScript. Am now pivoting to full stack developer and onward by starting with RoR and structured JavaScript .


I have been a 'developer' since 1980, the word loses meaning and depth with every passing day, in a tangent... ;) We have become slaves to an 'agenda' of data (habit) mining, marketing, McJobs and 'trending'... As John Dvorák said, the only important thing that happened in the automobile industry is the automatic transmission - the rest is just gadgets - although I like my '4-Matic' and 'AWD' with voice controlled GPS ;)

Today EVERYTHING is developed, if at all, in India, China/Russia and Eastern Europe - the rest are just consumers.


Hey, I'm Paul and I'm a senior software engineer currently focused on UX engineering from Cork, Ireland.

I have a simple blog and my aim for 2019 is to read, write, and design more often.

Really delighted to learn from you all here at Dev.to 🤗



I'm a senior software developer working with server-side Java technologies - mostly, with all these 2-3 letters JEE acronyms like JPA, JMS, WS, relational (and not-only-relational) databases and so on.

I'm running several open-source projects on GitHub that should make Java a better place to code. And I hope to find here Java devs who are passionate doing crazy stuff with Java -- like continuations, or C#-like async/await or whatever else that looks seemingly impossible. And I hope that someone even join me as a contributor, because it's getting harder to manage this zoo alone))


Hey everybody! I'm extremely excited to be here!

My name is Tenyson Partridge AKA instagram.com/codesthetics on IG and my current love is JavaScript, Vue, and Firebase. I love Unity3D and C# too but my current focus is web development.

Hello everyone my name is Jason.

I enjoy trying to stay up to do date on the newest technologies. I have been a .NET (primarily vb.net) develop for the past several years. I am currently trying to improve my webdev skills. My personal/professional goals for 2019 are to become more involved in the development community. I would also like to contribute to an open-source project this year so if you know of a beginner project or need some simple help with your project let me know.

I was initially drawn to this site from the article:


Hey, I'm Andy, a full stack software engineer. I enjoy writing about tech and learning new things. I'm at my happiest when I have my headphones on, working through a problem.

Here are some of my medium articles:

Nice to meet you all 😀

Hello fellows,

I'm JD. I've been there since October of last year (found this website randomly), but I finally decided to make myself known to the members here. Strangely, I've submitted my first post here, before introducing myself.

Currently learning (or trying to improve on) JavaScript, and interested in React and Vue. Fun fact about myself: I'm mostly self-taught, and my learning process is slow.

Anyway, pleasure to meet you all. :)

Hey people! My name is Sebastian and I am trying to get my CS degree and learning Full Stack Web Development on the side.
I am an immigrant in the United States working on getting my residence status and hopefully someday become a full fledged American Citizen!
I am passionate about politics, non-profit organizations (specially those dedicated to education), and Artificial Intelligence.

I came to this site after reading an inspiring piece by Maribel Duran in Medium titled "My journey from first generation college grad to Software Engineer" where she recommends various great communities like this one. I recommend her articles if you're struggling with motivation or looking for some basic resources to tie concepts down.

I know it's a long introduction, but long story short, I have been trying the "lone wolf" approach to learning and it has been hard and frustrating, so I decided to beat the shyness and language barrier and put myself out there, and I cannot wait to share my experiences and read about everyone else's around here!

Thanks for reading!
If you have advice, or are going through a similar situation do reach out and let's talk about how to make this exhausting path we've chosen a smooth ride!

Hello all,
I'm coming from an IT systems consulting background and am currently focusing full-time studying for a career change to front-end web dev. Been using Treehouse, FCC, CS50 and more, focused mainly on vanilla HTML, CSS, JS to get a good foundation. Just starting React and plan to spend some time on WordPress as well - hoping that this set of skills will help me land my first dev gig and looking forward to learning/participating here!



Hello. I'm Sunil Kumar. I came here by reading this article - dev.to/dechamp/25-years-of-coding-... which is trending on Hacker News today. I'm currently working as a developer at Plivo, India.

Apart from work, I keep working on my side projects. In the long term I want to leave my 9-5 job and depend solely on money earned through my side projects. I don't have any project which is bringing in the money right now but I'll definitely get there. Are there people here who earn from their side projects?

Hi everyone, I'm Samantha Ming 👋 I'm a Front End developer who loves learning new things and sharing them with the community.

I've been mainly sharing my weekly Code Tidbits series on my Instagram (@samanthaming). But I'm super excited to start knowledge sharing here on Dev.to 😊👍


Hi there,

I'm Marton I was just listening to the indie hackers podcast with Ben, while plaining wood at a wood yard in the Hungarian countryside.
: )
That's how I heard of dev.to.

My creative path is:
Photographer--->videographer--->hand drawn animation creator--->graphic designer--->webdesigner--->frontend developer (no JS)--->hustler of web creations.

Besides our creative family business I became an employee (after 4 years of entrepreneurship) doing woodwork outdoors mixed with process and overall development of the wood yard. I love wood, and dealing with people and processes, so am enjoying this adventure too.

I would really like to know some more coding languages, so I could create some more stuff more easily, and therefore live this life more freely. I haven't yet been able to spend enough time learning because honestly, covering our basic needs as a family is quite a task...but that's the challenge I chose to overcome.

This is my first time introducing myself to a community... and finally taking some steps towards sharing my knowledge and experience, and in the process learning from others.

I love the site design, and the feel of the whole community.
I'm grateful to be here!


Hello! I am Antonio, I am a Frontend developer mostly focused on ReactJS at the moment.

I would like to share and acquire knowledge within this community.

Right now I'm publishing mostly on medium and also started publishing on my Twitter account @antonio_pangall .


Hey people!

My name is Zeljko. I am a computer science student from germany. Currently I am focusing on machine learning, deep learning and data science. I am reading post/articles here on dev.to sometimes but have never replied to any of them. So I am A long time lurker here on dev.to. I have not been ever active on "social media" platforms anywhere so I wanted to give dev.to a try because the community here looks nice and friendly.



I'm Rik, a full-time indie product developer dad from The Netherlands. 🧔🧀

Been working as a web developer and designer for about 15 years. A couple of years ago I decided to start freelancing and save some money so I could take a chance at making a full-time income from selling web plugins. I work from home so I can spend lots of time with my kids (a 1-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son, crazy times). Also, I love snowboarding 🏂

Mid 2017 half my income came from selling web plugins on Envato, and the other half from client work. Near the end of 2018 I released Doka.js and it's starting to look like Doka is raising my product income to almost enough to stop client work and focus on products full-time.

I love writing about web development and have a dusty own blog. To compensate for the commercial plugins I sell (it always makes me feel like I'm promoting my own work) I also build fun and useful open source plugins like FilePond.js and Shiny.js.

I'll most likely write about little tips and tricks I use in my products and how to use my open source products (and maybe one of my commercial products) in your projects.


Hello guys! I’m Daniel from Budapest, Hungary.
I’m going to finish university this semester where I’m studying computer science. I’m also working for a small startup as an iOS developer.
I started to read this site a long time ago, but today is the day when I decided to create an account :)
I’ve read lots of articles here, maybe it’s time for give something back :)

In my free time I’m learning Português:)


I have had web development experience during the old days when javascript was at infancy.PHP MYSQL were my forte.

I am back to learn the latest drastic change in web development technologies.

I hope I can learn and at the same time contribute with the little knowledge I have to this group



Hi there. I'm Dan, a developer in the South hoping to gather knowledge and share the trade within my area. I'm a full-stack developer but would love to learn C# one day.

Hi all.

Been trying to find work as a Front End Web Dev since getting my college degree, but relocation is not an option and there aren't many companies in my area hiring for it. So I've been working other jobs while trying to get established as an independent contractor... but it's tough doing it on your own sometimes. About once a year or so I get into a funk where I try to find remote work, thinking it'd just be easier to work for someone else, but my lack of experience makes it impossible to be seen or given a chance.

I've seen a few people I follow on Twitter sharing things here on DEV, so I figured it was time for me to check it out and start sharing some of my own stuff.

Most of my projects are on bitbucket.org/sunfireweb, and I'm on Twitter @chillsunfire

Looking forward to learning and connecting.


I have always been passionate about computers. At first, they use to look like magic boxes that could do things based on the desires of their owners.

The first time I got to touch one, I realized that it wasn't that ready to do what I wanted. It made me understand that there are steps in order to talk to it. Our first date was awful. I could not make the lady talk much. Then I asked myself the ultimate question:

How, on earth, can I make this stuff work?

This question changed my life.

It helped me set goals. It guided me here today. I am still in the quest to answer the question. Because of it, I had to learn:

  • many languages(to talk to the lady lol)
  • graphics designing
  • web designing
  • web development
  • frontend & backend stuff

This was helpful. I was able to make her say some words. But as we exchange some words on a daily basis, I am starting to understand that there is still a lot to know about her.

So, I decided to make a dissection of her body(yeah) so that I can understand the basic components and functions. And there is a science for that. I had to learn it. Then I learned:

  • physics
  • mathematics
  • electronics

Here I have started to see why she couldn't talk to me anyhow.

I kind of know how to go about talking to her now. Her sub-components are extensively many and complex. It's built on top of a fantastic logic. It takes a lot of time to study them and how they relate to each other. In fact, if I am to understand them well I need a bit of chemistry... well it's deep.

I am zooboole, I study computers and along do what people do with computers.
