Hi! I'm Ade, I'm an aspiring developer working on learning Python. So far, I'm learning how to fail gracefully and the value of persistence.

Fun fact: I was born with six fingers on each hand.


Awesome! Python is a great choice. Keep it up and I'm sure you'll be a pythonista in no time. I wonder if you still had the extra digits if you could code 20% faster... :)


@goatsaretasty so those fingers didn't work and you had them surgically removed?!?


They apparently wiggled just fine but they were amputated right after I was born so I just have nubs there.

Imagine what an advantage something like that could be if they functioned correctly.

Now I regret my mum's hastiness. On the other hand, how many more typos would I have if I still had them?

That's a peculiar thought. I would expect that you would run into other issues -- Namely, that you would wind up having to design your own unique keyboard to accommodate your extra digits, as the spacing and alignment/arrangement of existing keyboards would not fit your physiology?

It would be a very interesting thing to evaluate and see if there are any other people with similar physiologies, and see how it has helped or hindered them, and what obstacles they had and benefits they reaped.

Though, I do suppose that also depends on your own interest in things like that. For those of us who have not had the same experiences, it would be interesting, for you, it may very well be boring by this point.

Funny how our perceptions can vary so much based on our own experiences with any given subject.


Nice to meet a fellow six fingered programmer, mine was removed immediately after birth and I'm sure it's same with you


Hello my name is Lamine Diagne and i'm senegalese in West Afrika


Hi. I'm Mudia Imasuen.
Learning python.
I didn't read the code of conduct but I am very well behaved.


My name is Mikey and I finally joined this site! Ben (founder of this site) is my younger brother. Hey @ben ! Ben taught me the basics of Ruby on Rails a few years ago and I've been hacking my way around ever since.


Hi, My name is Pedro Fidalgo, I have been around since 1996 working with databases and software.
Since 2014 I decided to start using platforms like Elance or Upwork, I made so much code and I worked with so many persons since then that I decided to start sharing some tricks and thoughts about the projects where I have been working.

I love databases mostly when they are used to help decision makers.
Software development also rings a bell, mostly algorithm development and desktop software development.
I work mostly with Oracle, SQL Server, VBA, PLSQL, TSQL, SSIS / SSDT, IBM Datastage, C#.



Hey, I'm Ashley, and I first learned to build websites when I was a teen, wrote my first program at age 15, and fell in love.

Life took over (bills, jobs, adult stuff) and I lost my way career wise... I'm 28-years-old now and learning all over again. Currently I'm focusing on WordPress development, which everyone seems to loathe, but I'm enjoying it so far.

Fact: I'm 4'11" tall and I wanted to be the Pink Power Ranger when I grew up. I'll settle with just being a developer but being a Blood Elf Paladin would be cool, too. o . O


Hello Ashley!

Life happens but it’s great you’re making your way back to your passion. As long as we do what we love we will never have to work a day in our lives.

Wordpress I have not tried out yet but it is highly recommended by universities that are design and art based.


Good luck with learning! Any reason for choosing WordPress?

Also, paladins FTW. :)


Thanks, Andy.

Main reason for choosing WordPress is that I have two blogs and wanted a custom built theme with performance first then beauty. It seems like all the pretty themes available are resource hogs. I used to love building websites so I figured WP would be a good fit. We shall see...


Welcome. It doesn’t really matter if other people like it or not, as long as you’re learning something that is useful to you.


Hi all! I was an amateur coder back from 2009-2013. Unfortunately, I was in a horrific motorcycle accident in late 2013. I was in a coma for a month and have certain, serious lasting mental deficits. Specifically, my short term memory and my spatial reasoning and spatial memory were most damaged. Despite this, I'm still very high-functioning and good with words, so I'm still able to learn new things (after enough repetition). Nice to "meet" everybody. :)


With the right motivation, anyone has the capability to succeed at anything. Don't let your deficits stop you, and you'll go however far you desire - at your own pace. It's amusing to see someone else who writes with similar structure to myself, it's rather rare.


Welcome, Daniel! Nice to hear you are doing the best.


Hello from Toronto, Canada! I'm Alison, a maker (3D printing mostly), advisor to tech startups, diversity & inclusion activist (working on checking my own white privilege and lifting others up), and get-sh*t-done type of person.

My day job is working for RBC as the lead for Technology Community Engagement. It's a new role for me and the bank and I'm figuring out how to support peer-to-peer tech communities inside and outside the company. I've been spending most of my time connecting with Toronto-based meetups and groups, offering to host events, and finding speakers.

I thought I'd hate working for a big company, especially a bank, but I've been surprised by the amount of freedom I have to build out the tech community programs. I have previously worked for a dev shop, healthcare company, government gambling, digital strategy, and my own startup.

I'm a big proponent of design thinking and often coach startups on customer development.

My biggest regret is that I took typing instead of programming in high school in the '90s and thought that coding/math/technology would be too hard to pursue. Many of my (male) friends went on to do computer science and engineering and I wish I did too.


Hi Alison,

It's my pleasure to see someone from Toronto here. I'm studying in Humber College at Web Development program.

I'm much like you - regretting, that I haven't chosen programming earlier, in high school in the '90s. Though I was always keen on math/coding. It took me 15 years after graduating from University international tourism management program, that I really-really enjoy coding more, than anything else in my life. So, now I'm back at school again and learning programming)))

You mentioned in your intro, that you were in charge of hosting events for tech people. I was thinking about visiting some of that kind. Can you, please, suggest where to start searching? Have a great time!


Hi Andrei - I'm currently working on a section of our website for Toronto tech listings. It should be up in the New Year. In the meantime, I find meetup.com, eventbrite, Startup Here, and MaRS to all have great listings.


Welcome to the dev.to community! 👋🏽

If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask.

People are friendly and happy to help :)


Hello! I'm Adam, I'm a college software developer working on getting my degree in Computer Science and Software Engineering, working mainly in game development and robotics. Currently I'm working with TrickFire Robotics at the University of Washington Bothell on creating a robot for the NASA Robotic Mining Competition.

I've recently seen lots of the articles on this website and seen so many interesting points brought up that I figured I should join up and see what else is on here.

Pleased to meet y'all!


Hi to everybody! I am Jahanzaib, currently working with Java EE and doing some DevOps. Still trying to understand if i want to go more to the backend or the frontend (coming from a web dev background).

I have found this one a good place to learn new stuff :)



I'm Idrees, an amateur JavaScript developer & a future engineer. I have been practising JavaScript for about 2 years now.

I am here, because one of my friend told me to join here and create posts about side projects & also see what other developers are creating and get inspired by them.

Thank you Dev.to


Love the look of the site. Senior Systems Designer for control systems in broadcast helicopter video transmission and government data links. I followed a static site (JAMstack) developer here and it took less than a minute to decide to sign up. I surprised myself even further by posting. Obie Wan convinced me I guess. Jedis...



Hi everyone! I'm Josh and I lead the Developer Relations team at Algolia, your friendly neighborhood search API :) I like Ruby for fun, JavaScript for apps and Java for speed. Always happy to talk about search, developer communities, San Francisco or Paris - ping me anytime!


Hi everyone! I'm Alan. Once upon a time I was a facilitator at the Recurse Center; I've also worked at a few startups. I really enjoy functional programming, math, and studying French, and lately I've gotten interested in deep learning/neural networks. I recently decided to leave the last startup I was working at to devote myself full-time to studying machine learning.

My New Year's resolution is to write more: I've got too many half(... quarter)-written blog posts sitting around. I guess if I'm gonna be in-between jobs for a bit then I don't have any excuses!


Hi lovely folks, this is Chintan here. I'm a developer and have been designing and coding software for over ten years. I'm passionate about new technologies and languages. I'm here to learn,unlearn and share.

Happy Holidays to everyone!!


Hi everyone. I'm Kenji, and I got interested in dev.to after reading a couple of interesting articles in Japan explaining how dev.to is FAST (and some of them are actually on dev.to such as this stuff > dev.to/mizchi/-devto--b5 by @mizchi (article in Japanese)). I'm recently working on C++ and C# as a late learner of OOP, as well as Erlang, Elixir, and FreeBSD.

Fun fact: since age 17 for 35 years my right eye doesn't really work (lens removed due to cataract). So I've been writing code mostly with my left eye only.


im mohamed , 46 yold most of it in the software field development then management but also still develop , each some years i receive a shock about how the tools and methods changed then i try to follow and stay on the road , im web development expert , dot net mostly with some of php and adf , doing 2 masters now , MBA and the other one on IT , agile and big data now days subjects . All Regards for Every one


Hello, everybody!

I'm Kazuki, a developer living in Porto Alegre, Brazil. My interests now range from machine learning (my field of study) to web dev.

It's really nice to be part of this community! Thanks.


Hi! I'm Daniel, im a Brazilian developer, actually i work as a freelancer developing with Python and JavaScript. I discovered Dev.to from Facebook and started reading everyday some posts about carrer, dev and discussions. Actually im 20 years old, seeking to learn even more and someday, live in Canada or USA. Ps: Sorry for the bad english.


Hey there, I'm Aaroh! I'm very passionate about web development, particularly about React, React Native, and GraphQL.

I'm currently learning some native Android development, while comparing/contrasting that to my React Native experience. It's been really fun so far! (I started about 3 weeks ago.)

My 1-2 year goals are to:

  • Write more. See some of the things I've written so far: medium.com/@aarohmankad

  • Speak at a conference. I'd absolutely love to give a talk on one of my passions this year, and I'm actively applying to conferences that have open "Call for talk Proposals"

  • Start a podcast called Open Source Party. I'd love to pick an open-source project every week or two and contribute to it, talk about my experience, and maybe even interview the owner/maintainers!

Thanks for reading and I'd love to hear from you!


Hey everybody! I stumbled across dev.to from a twitter post and it seemed like a pretty cool place! I’m a student about to graduate with a bachelors in web development. I’ve got a great passion for Front-end and recently have been getting into a lot of React!


Hello, I'm Eke Diala Enyinnaya. I'm learning to code. I'm learning Java and Android. Its kind of weird (Java) as I had basic knowledge of python- the variable declarations and all. It's challenging and I happen to love challenges. It's beautiful being here. I've learned quite a lot. I was in a dilemma about native and hybrid mobile apps but an article I read here about React native helped guide my decision.
Great to be here.

Hi! Name's Tenashy and I'm currently trying to wrap my head around full-stack web development. I'm still knees-deep in JavaScript and hopeful that one day I will be experienced enough to call myself a developer :)

And I have no background whatsoever in computer science, actually learning how to code using google... [sillyGrin]


I am really Great all of your team ,
I usually read your website article from facebook and believe me it boost my Energy toward Programming.
I am a beginner and love coding beside that i am from a remote area and i grew up in a area where we don't even have complete solution for electricity and 6 year back i got interest in Technology and i didn't become developer instantly but when i saw animation images it drove my mind to the the exact angle where i wanted and then when i start using internet it used to make me wonder how website and all this stuff works and later i find out that's it's something called programming and then start learning HTML online .
and then CSS, JS , JQUERY etc then i started learning backend language and believe me i was very happy when i learnt getting data from user and putting it in database and then do whatever you want with it .
later i started learning Graphic designing and digital marketing , Today i can work in multi field such as Graphic designing , SEO , front end development and backend development . I am really happy to introduce myself here .

Hi Somesh here from India. I am a wannabe coder and am currently trying to get better with Python and ML after spending quite a bit of time with C++ programming.

I'm newly out of college with a degree in CS and had my first job in a big service oriented company (TCS). But I left that job in the first couple months itself because the work was downright horrible for someone who loves creating and coding (it was "application support and maintenance"; a profile which didn't even require one bit of programming knowledge).

So here I am, jobless and clueless, but still learning nonetheless!

Hi Everyone

I just want to say thanks to every. I am started my career in web development.
I mostly read your site post from social media accounts (Facebook) and trust me I can't explain in my words its really useful for me. when I feel tired from coding your posts articles tips always increase my strength I am not feeling alone when I need any help.
I am a beginner no more knowledge about coding. when I continuously following your post I have the best basic knowledge about web development and programming. Hope so in my next post I will appear as a professional programmer. Many basic things about HTML CSS and bootstrap I learn into my schooling. But due to weak base in programming, I need more improvements and hard work. Muzammil Malik

Hello there. I’m Matt. A web developer. I make things. I use many things, PHP, WordPress, JavaScript/ECMAScript, Node. I dabble in other things but mostly those. I’m constantly learning and getting frustrated at new things. Long time reader, first time caller. I work to live, not live to work, so I stick to non-startup companies, starting to steer clear of agency work as well. So, yeah. That’s me.

Hi, I am Justice. I have a fairly nice grasp on web technologies such as PHP, HTML, CSS & JavaScript, although am still learning. Now, am adding Java, Android to the list (let's see how that goes).

Hello there :)

My name is Magdalena and I'm developer-wanna-be :D So far I'm still learning HTML&CSS, and my goal for next years is JavaScript.

It's a bit hard because this is completely different than what I am doing, but I like to go out of my comfort zone and learn different stuff.

So if you have any advice for my lost soul please don't feel shame to share with me.


Hey, I'm trying to figure out front end development as well. I've decided give Ember a try once I figure out the back end stuff.

Best of luck!


I'm a student an TA at Temple University. I'm learning Python to write unittests for students who don't have internet in the home. That's why I'm here, I don't know Python except the last 3 weeks that I've been teaching myself, and even more don't understand unittest.


PS: I also like to use silly nicknames on twitter; and silly avatars everywhere else.


Hi, My name is Tobi, I am a javascript developer (Nodejs) mostly, I am familiar with Angular2 I am currently learning React and Vue (mostly Vue) so far it has not been too discouraging. Cooking is one of my hobbies


Hi! My name is Yanko. I am from Bulgaria and I want to learn java so I can make android apps. At some point in the future I will learn swift, because I want to know both worlds. So far in my experience I find it hard learning the language and knowing what to use. I hope this community can help me somehow progress in the dev world.


Hello all, My name is Michael. I started learning to program because I was tired of sending tickets to other people to fix problems that I felt I should be able to fix.

My previous non-dev job went bankrupt so I figured why not follow my childhood dream and just do it. I also started an SEO business with a friend and all my clients wanted front end website work so I got into web dev. The longterm goal is full-stack development with most of my focus on the backend.

Learning Python/Django, HTML/CSS, PHP, js/angular, linux admin and a little C and Ruby/rails when I get bored :)


Hi! I'm Ermir. Full-time coder with Microsoft stack, following latest trends in technologies, and of course reading python for fun!

Hi All,

My name is Anh Vo. I am a software engineer. Ada is my favorite programming language. The name Ada is honored after Augusta Ada King. She is considered the world first programmer. The top reason I like Ada is that approximately 75% is statically checked and 25% is dynamically checked. The second reason I like Ada because it is closest to English language in the form of subject -> verb -> predicate.


Hi there, I'm Massimo from Italy, I enjoy to exchange experience and interests around programming...

I used to program WO (WebObjects) back in the days... that's where I learnt OOP

Nowadays I'm mostly on Laravel (PHP MVC framework) and Vue.js

Fun fact: few days ago I discovered Contributor Covenant, then I posted the M.L.K. quote on my FB diary (facebook.com/massimoselvi/posts/10...)


Hi . I am M Hassaan .I am about to finish my Electrical engineering graduation . I intend to do a masters on either:
1) Electrical Engineering
2) Robotics and Automation
3)Artificial intelligence and Software engineering

My personal interest is to go in software , but since I have very less knowledge of software I am doubtful that other competing students will easily beat me and get the better jobs. Should I stay confident for my aim or should I go into Electrical power in which I am already good .

Just came across this wonderful community.
Hello everyone, I'm Yadi. I'm a new grad, software engineer and game developer!
Back when I was around 12, I used to play Warcraft 3 a whole lot. I got really into their map editor. It was a pretty sophisticated editor in which you can design not just terrains, but custom units, items and campaigns. It even has its own internal scripting language called Jass. That was the first time I started to sense the concept of programming logic and flow. So I just kept at it over the years. from visual basic to C, to Java... and the list goes on.
When I was about to graduate high school, my parents and I started planning to let me study aboard. One thing led to another, next thing I remember is that I was on a flight to Baltimore from Beijing and the crazy journey of mine just began.
... fast forward 4 years...
just got my undergrad degree back in June this year. It was quite challenging and rewarding at the same time. Met many talented people and responsible professors.
And I got an internship offer at a AAA game studio!
I'm a 22 year old kid just got out of school and slowly stepping into the next phase of my life. Wish my luck guys!
Nice to meet yall!

Hello... I'm Jeremy. Per my twitter bio, I'm a Rock Climber, Downhill Skier, Motorcycling Enthusiast, Ballroom Dancer, Father, Husband. Not necessarily in that order. Oh, and I program computers.

I'm in Michigan (live in Ann Arbor, work in Detroit). Grew up here, lived in CA (SF/SV) for 14 years, planning to go back in 2019.

I learned SWE by accident; my prior career was as a CAD engineer, which gave me the opportunity to learn some Lisp to customize the CAD systems. Learned Oracle with the assistance of a guru, shortly after launched into SWE'ing fulltime. Switched to Java development in '98, using Java 1.0 for a short time before Java 2 was released (to the relief of many). Ah yes, Oracle 7 and Java 1. Good times.

I've added several arrows to my quiver, but Java and data management is the core to my skillset, still. Looking forward to adding some more modern client-side JS technique/tools.

I'm happy to advise, coach, mentor other engineers, whatever their experience. Let me know!


Howdy all. I'm Dustin from Austin, TX. I've been doing the iOS developer thing for the past... oh god, nine years. Working on branching into full stack.
