Hi all,

I'm a web developer on the Northern California coast. I've been employed in this field for a little over a year now, but have been studying programming and doing freelance work off-and-on for about 13 years. I prefer working on the back-end, but do front-end work as well. My latest challenges are learning how to build custom Shopify stores and writing Shell scripts to keep all of our sites backed-up and up-to-date.

I love to travel, and am going to try out being a digital nomad for a month, while traveling solo through 9 countries in SE and NE Asia. I leave mid-March!

I've been on this site for a few weeks now, and have learned a lot from the articles. I especially appreciate the "career" articles, as they have helped me think through my own career, where I want to be, and how to get there.

Hello there!

I am Vinay, a Linux Sysadmin with a strong interest in the DevOps mindset (atleast I believe it's a mindset than a role) who's eager to learn from each and everyone of you here, while giving back to the community and therefore I started following this awesome site {now 1 of my permanent bookmarks ;-)}

Looking forward to imbibe as much knowledge and share it as much I can.

PS: When I'm not dabbling with technology, I'm also an avid artist and you can check out my work here [bit.ly/2D1ZPgL]. Any sort of feedback on that will be much appreciated.

1 more PS: For any fellow artists here, please reach out to me to know more on how I've deployed the above, in case you wish to host your own.

3 cheers to the Dev.to community! :)

Hello World!!
Good to see everyone out here holding it down; looking forward to being a part of it.
I'm obsessed with coding a Starcraft 2 AI at the moment. It can't even beat the in-game AI yet, but maybe I can blame that on a lack of training time...

Collapse
peter profile image
Peter Kim Frank • Edited on

Will you consider writing an article about your Starcraft 2 AI? I am sooo curious. (Or just send me to some additional resources?) I used to play all the time and was reasonably competitive (Diamond League).

Does your AI have APM limitations? Otherwise, I know things can get crazy.

Does it play a specific race?

Does it use a general strategy? Or will it sometimes rush, focus on macro, drops, etc?

Just super curious 😇

cc @maestromac who might find this interesting, as well!

midblue profile image
Jasper Stephenson • Edited on

Awesome! I've only just got my feet on the ground, here, and I've been following this guy Steven Brown's guides on Medium: chatbotslife.com/building-a-basic-...
His guides work beautifully one after another to get you started on first making a bot that can do ANYthing at all, then working up to adding reinforcement learning and saved training data, etc. Highly recommended for a great weekend project (especially since SC2 is free now!)
The AI I'm working on right now is solely Protoss, and has no limit on APM, because I'm trying to see how strong I can get it at the moment. I have a coworker who's also gotten into it at the same time as me and we battle our AIs against one another, so APM isn't an issue. As of my current level, it rushes the hell out of opponents every game, but once I tackle the challenge of ai-friendly minor unit control and placement the AI might be able to teach itself how to macro better.
That's really the most interesting thing about this entire experiment is that you really don't determine what specific STRATEGY the AI picks so much as give it a realm of options and a reward algorithm and then turn it loose for a while.

Collapse
midblue profile image
Jasper Stephenson

And I'd love to post here but it's a little intimidating, especially considering that I'm a total novice when it comes to AI. Maybe I could post about how easy it is to get started!

Thread Thread
peter profile image
Peter Kim Frank

This is really fascinating. The idea of training your own AI to battle your opponent's version is really fun and interesting. For maps with only one spawn location, I would think a super-early proxy gateway strategy to train pairs of Zealots would be pretty deadly, especially with perfectly-managed usage of the chrono boost. For your coworker's AI to account for that threat, it might have to devote more resources for early defense and/or scouting.

I'll check out the article you linked, could be a fun weekend project (and justifiable escape back to SC2) once I get some free time.

A "how to get started" post would be great if you feel up to it; but of course, no pressure. I'm just sure a lot of us would be interested ! :)

Héctor Ramírez

Hi, Chris, thank you for your welcome. My very personal feeling of the biggest change I have seen in tech was the transition from proprietary to open, call it what you may: hardware, software, firmware, peopleware, ... To point out a specific case, FORTRAN compilers were not always compliant with the standards and there was no guarantee that some program written for an older version would run under a newer one; in those days we referred as "migration" the (possible but rather frequent) rewriting of programs after any compiler update.

Ah, that's a great point! open source has really come a long way, that's for sure. And yeah - that must have been so annoying if compilers weren't consistent - Makes me really appreciate what we have now.

What up. I'm Noah. I live in the Tacoma area (south of Seattle) and work even further south. I work as an Application Developer using mostly ASP.NET (still running web forms [I know I know...]) with a bunch of SQL database stuff and basic JQuery and JavaScript tied in here and there. I've dabbled in MVC (and we're eventually moving towards .NET Core MVC as well as moving to a cloud base), and have some experience in AngularJS (1.6+ but not Angular2), HTML, CSS, other JavaScript functionality, some SUPER basic API stuff and that's all for the code side.

I want to be a better coder. I want to have a better understanding on where and how things started and where things are going in the future and I want to be involved but I am seriously overwhelmed by it all about 94% of the time. And honestly, feel super lost without some guidance on what I really should be doing. So I come here. I read stuff. I hope to get a little bit of this and that on the side while learning-by-doing on-the-job.

I just started snowboarding again after nearly 10 years. I play guitar. I write sometimes, sometimes I play PlayStation, and I have some kids who keep my busy.

Say hi. Be my mentor. Flip me off. Whatever. I'm just really looking forward to expanding my knowledge by talking to people.

Hello everyone. I found this community via the merch site that popped up on Producthunt recently. I immediately bought 2 sweatshirts before I even realised that the site wasn't just a shop selling cool clothes for devs.

So basically for my first 5 minutes of Dev.to life, I was like one of those hipster girls who wear Led Zeppelin tshirts having never listened to the band.

Thankfully though, I can walk the walk - I've been a full stack developer for about 15 years. The last 10 years I've been 100% Ruby on Rails. I've dabbled a bit in some Node.js frameworks but Ruby/Rails is where my comfort zone is.

I've launched several products, some of which were acquired, more info here:
yongfook.com/about.html

After 1.5 years of working on my last SaaS product while beach hopping around Asia, I was seduced back into corporate life to a senior product / tech role at a global MNC in the finance industry. I've been doing that now for the last 2 years.

I'm here to keep my skills sharp and to maybe also provide an enterprise tech perspective on discussions, if that'll be useful to people!

It's been a year since I started using Java programming language. I was familiar with C++, but the transition still a big change for me, because I jumped in before learning to swim. After taking a step back, and starting from the beginning, I found that it's easy, but I still find myself still making rookie mistakes, so I am hoping to learn a lot from this community. Even get introduced to new programming language!

Hi everyone, greetings from Singapore! I recently found this amazing place while doing career research and general reading for enrichment and would love to be part of this community.

I've been doing IT in the banking industry for coming 8 years now, dabbled mainly in rdbms, some web dev, some backend, but I've been doing ETL stuff for the last 2-3 years or so (sql server, Informatica, oracle) and absolutely hate it. Looking at my career runway I'm starting to transit into a project manager role which I don't want. At this juncture I'm picking up python trying to transition into a ML career but it's proving tough to self learn while on a full time job.

Hope to learn lots from other people's journeys and get more clarity on my own!

Hi, I've started trying to learn programming again in the beginning of January. First time was back in '95 with a book for the assembly language.

Who knows, it feels fun to learn programming again :). About myself, I'm a 40-year old, laidback guy from Trondheim, Norway. I like prog rock, Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield, Jean Michel Jarre, Bach.

I've been in technology over 15 years, from tech support to IT to dev to consulting to training and now a mix of consulting and training. I love programming languages, and I've worked with a number of them - Perl, Python, Ruby, Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Visual Basic, C#, VB.NET, PowerShell, and some derivatives of other languages. I co-authored a book on PowerShell. I'm a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) in Visual Studio and Development Technologies - that means Microsoft appreciates my visibility in the community and gives me an opportunity to be a voice of the community when dealing with the teams who create Visual Studio, C#, VB.NET, and other Microsoft tools and languages. I speak at user groups and conferences on user experience for developers from a developer perspective, as well as various other topics as requested. I mentor people, mostly virtually, as time allows. I'm also a mom to 2 little guys and married to the love of my life (who is mentioned in my #shecoded2018 post).

Hello everyone!

About me:

I'm a full stack web engineer that has about 8 years of professional experience across mostly JAVA and .NET technologies. I've played around with Python, Ruby, and even Node.js trying to find what suits me.

Recently, I've decided to make the commitment to becoming an expert cloud based web apps with Azure hosting a .NET/.NET Core Stack/Microservice behind Angular (Although, I'm still holding out hope that Ember catches on).

Really enjoying this place so far, and look forward to not only reading, but contributing lots of good content as I learn more.
