Hi there 👋

I'm a self-taught coder, always learning, no CS degree. When I started 3 years ago, I had a hard time feeling overwhelmed by all the concepts I should learn.

Now, I'm working on a project that allows people to teach coding live to each other and learn together. I would love to connect with y'all!

Hi Everybody!
I started coding on mainframes back in the early 70's. Then 30 years later I started managing coders. (yes I'm old, but I love to be challenged!)
4 months ago (after managing our production company for 7 years) I started learning Python, Flask, MySQL, and WTForms so I could convert the current companies production/repair records from Excel Spreadsheets to a web based database application.
I have made real progress but still have a bucket-load to learn. I was struggling with having a single form that had 3 parts (always needed data and 2 parts that were not needed based on if the associated option was included in the hardware). That search led me here. But the potential solution I found here wasn't adopted. I ended up choosing a different approach which seems to work. (more testing eminent)

That's awesome! It's always super inspiring to read about folks that embody the "always learning" mindset. A warm welcome to DEV, Jerry!

Hello everyone!

I've been coding for over 30 years but just started a YouTube channel about the business of programming a month ago. I just published a new video on

How to Negotiate Good Tech Salary

This covers how to find out how much your job position pays then basic negotiating strategies and lastly advanced negotiating tricks for not only getting more money but a better quality of life.

Let me know what you think.

Hey everyone, new here. I really enjoy web dev with nodejs and javascript and also systems programming with Rust. Just finished a project with nodeJS + Electron that allows you to organize all of your steam games and emulators and launch them from one application seamlessly. It has box art, video previews, and works out of the box with retroarch libretro cores. If you wanna check it out it's on my github page.

Aside from that I also have been falling in love with the Rust Programming language as of late. Got some future projects I wanna write in Rust, one of which being a emulator for the NES and the other being a small hobby operating system in Rust. Future technologies I'm most interested in would probably be typescript and web assembly. I'm excited to join this community of fine developers. I look forward to writing some very interesting posts.

I guess I will need to learn Rust after all thanks for the enlightenment sir

Hello everyone!

Been coding for about 5 years. Although I got my degree in CS, I still consider myself a new programmer. Currently, I work for a company as a front end react developer after finding my passion for web development 3 years into my programming experience. Love to be a part of programming communities! Looking forward to reading articles from this community.

Hi everyone!

I'm new here, been in ITOps for more than a decades. Deemed I need some coding knowledge for career advancement. just finish first Javascript course on Codecademy.

I'm excited to be here.

Hi! 👋

I like to describe myself as a regular of the Tutorial Hell Inn, where knowledge abounds, eddies, and leaks—a voluntary regular, that is, as I really enjoy learning. I am a self-taught dev, although that term feels slightly wrong as most of what I've learned has come from the community.

Coding and writing fiction are two things I love, and after lurking and learning from this site for a long time I thought I would join and see what happens if I combine the technical aspect of coding with the reading ease of fiction—plus some bad comedy—in my posts. The outcome can only be disastrous.

That's mostly it! I would love to connect with all of you.

Have a wonderful day!

Hi, developers!

I am a self-taught beginner Front-End developer from Russia.
I have started learning JavaScript about 3 months ago.
My start journey was hard.
this, closure, prototypes - I keep learning these hard parts now.

After JavaScript, I want to learn React and find my first job.
I hope, at the end of my journey I don't get an undefined || null. 😄

Hi all,

I’m a mathematician who studies game theory. Most of the software development I learnt was from contributions to the axelrod which is a neat project for studying the prisoners dilemma.

I also teach programming with mathematics and mathematics with programming so I’ll probably be writing about that at sort of stuff.

Always looking to learn what I don’t know I don’t know. 😊

In my free time I like to throw frisbees for my dog.

Hi all! As a user of the Superproductivity app, I came here because I stumbled upon a few articles by its creator, all of which appeared here. I decided to create an account, and it seems I might actually like it.

Let's see how deep this rabbit hole is!

Hi everyone!

I am a UX Engineer (more of a Full-Stack Developer with UX-Design thrown in). I enjoy learning new things and working as a developer was for me the perfect choice to live out this passion (thanks to the continuous stream of new JavaScript libraries and frameworks).

Would love to connect with all of you!

Hey everyone!
I have been coding for more than 15 years. I fell in love with programming in my high school years when I tried Turbo Pascal and Comenius logo. Later I started my CS degree and parallelly launched my software developer career. I was focusing mainly on .NET fullstack development with angularjs front end. I tried a few other stacks (php, python flask, java, react) as well during the years. After few years of develpment I joined a private programming school startup as a mentor

When I have spare time I love to try out new technologies like how to write VS Code extension or Add-In for Microsoft Word and other fun stuff. Sometimes these expeditions led me to interesting recognitions and challenges which I thought would be worth to share. So here I am. 😎

Hi There,

I never new about DEV or I would have register long ago, but it's never to late isn't it?. looking forward to met great engineers and designers with great project, even just for discussing.

I have a project that been stuck in my head for a while now, and now I wanted to work on it since I have some free time on my hands. Crypto jump, to make short, a crypto trader mobile that does the trade for you with 1 click only. yea the app will do all the trading, and you can seat tight and just look at the money grow🤑. I'm not inventing anything new here, but just putting things together to help common foes who doesn't have much knowledge on crypto trading (and they don't really need too).

curious about the project? you can see more here :
and if you want to be part of the project:

Hey! I'm currently going through Flatiron School's software engineering program. I've loved technology my entire life, pretty literally (my mother would tell you I was on the family computer since I was born). My blogs here will be mainly about the projects I do with the program, as well as any interesting topics I wanna talk about.

I am interested in writing about tech, although I am not a developer or a code maniac, I have edited and designed tech blogs for a tech org.

I would really love if people redirect me to some sassy personal tech sites - with amazing blogs.. maybe on Rust, Haskell, Elm, etc.

Thanks! ^_^
