Hello everyone,

I’m Mina, a Java developer turned C# developer. Although I’m a senior at my work, I still feel like there’s so much to learn. I think that’s the beauty of programming — constant learning.

I also blog on my spare time and am learning React natve. I’ve always dreamed of publishing an app but never really got around to it. I now focus more on writing on my blog (craftedserendipity.com) and programming.

My manager sent me an article from dev.to about code reviews. It piqued my interest so much that I decided to join the community.

Excited to learn from passionate, like-minded people, and to contribute my ideas and experiences to the community. :)

Hi Khairi, unfortunately, I have not tried programming in Lua yet. But, object-oriented programming is a type of programming design. It's kind of based on what the language is catered to.

So, in OOP, we can create classes and relate them to real-world entities. That is okay for, say, Java or C#. But in C, we can't do that because C language doesn't have classes.

Maybe you can apply the OOP Concepts in Lua language. These concepts include polymorphism, encapsulation, etc. Click here for more information on OOP. :)

Hi-ya everyone! My name's Spencer and I mostly do [ actually only do, really ] Javascript stuff. I'm currently trying to learn backend stuff as I've really only ever done things with frontend code. My favorite frontend framework has to be Vue.js, and I'm excited to learn GraphQL.

I came to DEV.to after finding it either through Twitter or Product Hunt, I forget which. The design of the website stood out to me though, and the community here seems great! So, yeah... Here I am :)

Hi everyone,
I'm Helen and i'm a junior dev in JS in a french start'up. I'm working on React (I tried vuejs too but I felt in love with react). I finished school in november 2018 so I've got lots of stuff to learn, discover... I'm enjoying my new work (I was a comics bookseller for 5 years) and I discover Dev.to on march 8th for International Women's day with "Nevertheless she coded".
I'm really happy to discover this community :)

Hi everyone, I'm Chris. I've been doing front end development for a long time, focused more on HTML/CSS/jQuery, with a little backend dev, a little UX and a little mobile app development thrown in. I've specialized in creating accessible sites lately, learned a lot about the WCAG 2.X guidelines.

I recently found this site through a couple of developers that I followed on Twitter. My coworkers mostly use Microsoft Teams to communicate.

Hi, Chris! I've been trying to wrangle better accessibility into our 25,000 pages and our content management system. So far, it's been winning, but progress is happening.

Hey, my name is Cedric. I was brought here from Twitter after doing a follow blitz of developers (Ali Spittel, Ire Aderinokun, and Sara Soueidan just to name a few). I wanted another avenue to learn from like-minded individuals beyond my job. I currently acquired a Javascript cert. after only having working experience with it and jQuery for 9 years.

My coworkers mostly communicate in person and on slack. Majority of our conversations involves who's buying the office cookies next and funny gifs.

Hey there! I prefer messaging people, but I always intend for the messages to be asynchronous. We as a team strive for async communication, and no one is expected to respond immediately. It's a great way to stay focused and get things done, while talking with one another when needed.

Hi everyone, I'm Stephanie, I'm a UX designer and mobile expert in Luxembourg, I also teach and talk at conferences.
I don't code that much anymore but I still like to keep up with what's going on in JS, HTML and CSS. I read a few articles on this site and decided to create an account :)
I'm currently learning the basics of swift with the apple playground app and I have to say, it's a nice and fun way to learn.

Hellooo :)

I've been a software engineer for over 14 years, focusing on javascript for a little over 10 years now. I've also recently become a Pluralsight author. I'm joining Dev.to so that I can get some technical content out there, and hopefully help someone with a problem they're trying to solve, just like so many articles out there have helped me get to where I am today. I'd love to write more articles about things that I'm working on, and I really like reading content on dev.to.

Hello world! :-)

I'm a Web/iOS developer and up-and-coming data scientist wrapping up my M.S. in Data Science in 7 weeks! I love a cross-section of software from FP in Swift to computer vision work with deep learning. I work often in the web space and love teaching! My friend Jake Dohm said I should join the community so here I am! I have worked at the same company RoleModel Software for over six years while I've been in school.

I am excited to share things I'm learning with others and look forward to learning from you all.

Hello,

I am new to programming (2-3 months) and looking for a home. My 12-week code boot camp is nearly over. It gave me a handle on the basics of HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, Linux, and PHPMyAdmin/MySQL. Currently, I am trying to learn Bootstrap to help me in the front-end (I'm terrible at design). I want to learn a library and a framework. My next programming language is Python, I hope!

Hi, everyone.

I'm Al (that's with an L, as in AL, not an I as in Artificial Intelligence). What brought me here was Opera Developer. I switch browsers monthly so I can experience each one as a heavy user. Opera is using Chromium so it's not all that far from Chrome (or soon, Microsoft Edge). Next month it's Safari's turn.

I'm a web developer with a fairly large local government in the US. In my spare time I teach a front-end class at a college, volunteer with Red Cross Disaster IT, volunteer with Creative Mornings breakfast lectures, and try to keep my son from overthrowing the world.
