Hey! I'm Tiffany and I am a frontend dev from Toronto. I am currently working at a startup and also looking for new opportunities. I am a fairly new dev and just trying to navigate through this industry, spoiler alert, it's kind of hard! I started out trying to do full-stack but found that I was spreading myself too thin and I had more of an interest in frontend so that is what I am focusing my energy on now. I look forward to being part of this community, sharing, and learning from you all!

Hi Tiffany! Welcome to DEV :) It feels hard in the beginning to be a dev, especially because everywhere around you everything looks amazing. I think joining a community like this can be a great way to keep up with what's happening around you, without putting to much stress on it.
If at some point you feel like you should be posting more, writing another article, learning another tech; remember that this is not meant to be a second job, but rather a community of nice people to hang around. I remember when I started learning web dev that people around me were writing articles, or trying all the new things; and how that fed my impostor syndrome. Taking it slow is usually the answer. Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.

Hey Tiffany, great to meet you! 👋🏻

What kind of stuff do you find yourself using most in your front-end work? I’ve always struggled with front-end, so I’d love any insight you have!

Hey, nice to meet you too! I use React most of the time, it makes frontend a lot more fun for me because you can really just get going with building interactive things. I have also begun using SASS for my CSS because it can keep things very clean! I definitely have the same feeling towards backend stuff haha

Hey everyone! I'm Ricky and I live in LA. I'm a front-end web developer who has been learning HTML and CSS for two months and is about to start learning JavaScript. What brought me here were the stickers that I kept seeing on Twitter, as I follow a lot of developers there. I just thought wow, where is everyone getting these awesome stickers? And I ended up discovering this very cool community, luckily. :) I'm here to share as I continue to learn web development, start writing some blog posts, and to learn a lot from all of you. Cheers!

Hi Ricky!
Cool story about how you found DEV. I see you are now moving to JS. When I started learning HTML and CSS, the first project I did was creating a github page with just css and html. After that I decided to learn js to make a game. Ended up participating in a ludum dare game jam. Thought it was really fun, highly recommend it :)

Hey Tiago :) Can you share more about the Github page you created? I'm trying to build as many HTML & CSS projects as I can :) Also, I had never heard of a ludum dare game jam. They sound awesome! I'm going to keep learning JS and maybe I'll participate in the next one!

Sure, but I am not very proud of that page nowadays :p
The "portfolio" section was added after the ludum dare and updated once I started working, but the rest of the page was done when I was still learning.
tiagojdferreira.github.io/
Also be sure to look for meetups or other communities near you :)
I have now started a new site tiagojdf.com :)

Destiny Aigbe

Hello Rick, I'm glad you asked. Ruby on rails is a web programming framework of the programming language ruby. It is a full stack web framework and it is used to build website. It's about 70 percent back, and 30 percent frontend. So for jobs and internships, it is more of backend they refer to it as.

Hey everyone! I’m currently a grad student working towards my MSc in Data Science—I did my undergrads in Comp Sci and Mathematics though!

I’m a long-time Python programmer, but I’ve recently been moving on to Rust (which I absolutely adore way more than I ever imagined) and Haskell, and I’m eyeing Scala somewhat longingly. I really enjoy building backend systems and packages, especially stuff that can be used by the FOSS community! And I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for implementing academic-oriented stuff when I can.

One of my biggest guilty-pleasures is in computational logics—in my short PhD stint, I took a course on this and was absolutely enamored! I love learning about different logics and thinking about their applications to concepts, and I really really enjoy the process of drawing out logic proofs. Still haven’t grasped logic programming though—just never wants to fit into my mental model just right. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Long-winded, but hey! It’s me!

Hey! I hope one day I can delve into more comp sci/backend technologies. It interests me so much, but it is a little harder for me to get good at. I look forward to what you have to share :)

Hi Danielle,
I can tell you a little bit of what worked for me when I learned web dev. It might not apply at all to your case, but who knows.
When I learned web dev, I had a bit of free time in my hands (was looking for my first job), so I bought myself a 6 month license for codeschool (they've been bought by pluralsight and changed a lot, so I can't really say if they are good or bad nowadays). Having a program, and a structured path for learning really helped me staying focused.
On top of that I did a few projects that helped consolidating all I had learned. The first was building my CV as a github page and after that I challenged myself to make a game. Ended up participating in Ludum dare and making a small game.
A part from that, I started going to meetups, discovering the community around me and learning new things.

Hello Tiago,
I appreciate your feedback, thank you! Ludum dare sounds awesome and congrats on the game, I'll have to check it out. Looks like the structure from a good code school helps connect the pieces and fill in any pockets of uncertainty. ...I'll look into the school you recommended.
I've never seen such a supportive community online like there is for coding. I'd love to meet people in my area, I'm sure its extremely fun to work on projects/learn together.

Thanks again for sharing your journey and providing some insight :)

Hello world. It's my second day using dev.to, it's def catching on and I really enjoy the ease of usage compared to blogging on medium, however it feels very similar to blogging on medium, wordpress latest updates, and also it's a little easier & fells overall "leaner" to get content out there.

Somehow that image upload made me happy and i like how it's a little header service that carries through the content VS having to be within a menu/wizard.

Smart idea that... looks around

'any-who' cool ux kudos aside, im digging this place, a lot.

I wrote a blog already, really enjoyed doing it too; dev.to/itylergarrett/hello-world-w...

Connect w/ me! Excited to network and meet everyone.

Mostly, I'm excited to learn more about data science, computer science, and anything data or machine learning related. Lately I've been plugging away a lot in making automated NEWS feeds via RSS, and eager to do more text mining solutions to benefit end users to potentially help spawn a healthy looking press website that people might want to team up with me to engineer into something valuable. When I'm not consulting in data analytics, I'm managing a desktop app that does task scheduling utilizing electronjs & vuejs, and in closed beta - aim to release in next few weeks once everyone catches up after the recent snow storm in austin/dallas texas area.

I have about 18 years of experience in design, front-end development, and digital marketing, and in the past few years, I've also lead teams and held management positions in various organizations. This inspired me to become a content creator and share my knowledge with the world. For now, I just have a Romanian YouTube channel focused on convincing more of my countrymen to get started with a career in digital / IT, and I'm planning a second channel in English in a few months, which will tackle both entry-level and strategic senior-exec level issues in the web and digital industry.
