Hi! Most of all our team have positions in Latvia, that include option to work from office or hybrid version (office and remotely). However, if there would be some 100% remotely position, I can post it here too.

Hi, I checked the information about the courses from our partner. Courses includes an opportunity to learn remotely. Learning material is in English, however lectures speaks on seminars in Latvian. If it is okay for you to learn from a material and ask some simple question in English via email, than I can post the link, that includes more information.

Hi everyone. I am just starting my coding journey. I want to learn Front and Back end web development as well as Python. My first mission right now is learning JavaScript. I'm self-learning and sometimes it has been a pain, but I'm determined. I will write codes! Counting on community support.

Cool coder🙏, I also know basics of JavaScript and planned a list of things to learn in JavaScript to be a pro JavaScript developer.

In a job market, at least European, it is very useful to know frameworks too. Most of all Angular and Vue.js in case of web development, in some cases React.js too. Also is very useful to understand what you want to create - is it web pages, web applications, or mobile applications. There are so many variables to use JavaScript, as well as other languages.

Hola dev.to !

This is Pere from Barcelona, a senior hobbyist programmer.

Long long time ago, I began programming in assembler and BASIC for z80 processors. Soon the IBM PC was born; with its IBM Macro Assembler and Turbo Pascal. I then moved on to Windows, using C, Borland Delphi, SQL and REXX. Few years later, the brave world of Web; and java and javascript were everywhere; and I found myself in the the joyful PHP and Python playgrounds. And today I am still enthusiasticly having fun with my nodejs backends and react frontends.

So here I am, glad to be here. To have fun, and to learn, and maybe to share some of my experience.

Lovely story, Pere!

I still have a z80 flying around - my father's first computer... :-) when was the last time you touched one?

All the best,

Hey guys, I was brought here by repeatedly hearing the words 'post on dev' and decided that this was probably a good place to be.

I am a beginner developer, learning mainly Javascript, React, Node.js.

I'm looking forward to becoming competent enough in code to help others learn and thrive in the fast developing programming world.

Dylan

Hi everyone! My name is Dylan from New York. I graduated from undergrad last year with a major in computer science, where I spent most of my time coding in C++. I came into the major a bit late during my time there and feel like I lack a lot of practical experience as I didn't have the chance to get any internships. However, over quarantine I have been trying to teach myself some new skills such as webdev, and other languages like Java through courses on Udemy. Over the past year I've been struggling to get my foot into the door jobwise and found dev.to on Twitter and became interested in the community. I look forward to connecting with cool people here!

Hey, I'm Gerrit, from Germany and very excited to be here :)

...hardly used my skill for any real world problem.
I did actually search for a dev community not a long time ago and now I found you, I guess dev.to seems to be a very nice one :)

My current learnings: rust, react and dgraph
My current project: a compiler generator in rust :D

Have a nice day 😊

Hi everybody! I'm from Rome, Italy and landed here because of my everlasting wish to improve knowledge about what I know and learn some of the many topics I don't know yet. If I can help anyone to solve some doubt I'll be happy. Since starting my career I believe that only knowledge sharing can lead to real progress for everyone. I studied many languages of the past (assembly of some micros, Basic, Pascal, COBOL, ...) and some now pervasive (C, Python, MicroPython) and built applications with many of them. I attended some M.l. and D.L. Coursera courses but never built anything "intelligent" yet! Now working in IoT embedded systems developing device to monitor and control energy consumption (and hopefully optimising its use!). Enthusiast of electronic music, 3D printing, A.I. and other topics. Feel free to get in touch for comments or anything, I'll try to answer everyone.

Lorenzo Villalobos

I am a developer.

I thought my life was going to pan out differently. That I would be in an office somewhere working in a traditional setting. But alas the stars were not in place and that vision never panned out. Instead, what I found myself in is a highly competitive and thrilling field where changes occur at the drop of a hat and code speaks louder than words. Where the glow of the monitor brings me absolute joy and satisfaction.

I enjoy development because it's one of the few fields that doesn’t discriminate. Your code either runs or it doesn’t and if it runs that's a huge plus! No amount of fast talk and convincing can hide that fact. I feel good knowing that I can convey my skill as an employee through speech and action. I tend to be considered a go-getter by my peers. I tend to propel myself in the direction of what I need without direction.

My specialties include quickly picking up new skills, problem-solving, responsive design, website optimization, SEO, along with a slew of development chops to match (HTML, CSS, C#, JS, Python, Node, PHP to name a few). I am always enthusiastic about learning new languages and don’t shy from doing my part to become production-ready on a foreign stack on my own time & dime.

My passions include long conversations over topics that are foreign to me. Investigating ways of filling gaps in my skill set, listening to people, and being there for those in need. I also lack the ego that sometimes is afforded to those at my rank. I like for everyone to learn, grow and prosper. You should reach out to me if you are looking for someone who is technically savvy, motivated, and resourceful.

Hi, I'm Kevin. I've been aware of DEV for some time, but I've only had a reason to post recently.

Professionally, I have a mix of experience typical for someone growing up in the 90's in the US. LAMP, server administration in general, nginx, Ansible, Docker, Kubernetes, various specific libraries/platforms like Meteor and Drupal, recently TypeScript and Angular (and AngularJS from the old days)...and probably things I'm forgetting.

It's nice to be here.

Hi All,

I'm Chris based in Ireland. I have been working within the I.T. industry for approximately 20+ years. Saying that makes me feel really old! I would class my experience more as a generalist than a specialist as I like to have my fingers in a few pies. I also enjoy the crossover between business and computing and have a small business.

I hope to be able to add some quality articles to dev.to in the future but bare with me as it is my first entry to blogging. Feel free to connect and follow!
