Hi, I am a freelance web developer from India. I am in webdev professionally from 2 years now after having worked as a full time junior sysadmin. I started working with simple static pages using TailwindCSS and HTML as very small projects but quickly moved to Jekyll, Gatsby and similar static site generators. I now primarily work on Gatsby sites but have been using Next.js more lately and have started moving slowly to more dynamic sites which co-ordinate with servers for various uses and it's been a great rewarding journey so far and hoping I'll continue to learn more and more as time passes by.

I am looking forward to learn Rust and Go since Rust enables me to use low level code on browser using WASM and Go interests me since it feels like a great choice for lightweight and fast backend since the idea of using interpreted languages in backend, especially with the dependency structure of node.js was never something I felt comfortable with.

I have been active in Reddit programming communities for a decade now, but those communities have started changing for worse unfortunately and hence I was looking for a more open place for discussions which landed me here.

Hi all,

I am a web and app developer living in the Boston area. I work at Education Development Center and do a mix of front-end development, Drupal development, eLearning consulting, app development. I also work as a tutor / writing coach / homework coach and write about web development both here and on Medium.

At EDC we are right now in the midst of some Drupal upgrades and migrations, which represent the majority of our work this year. I have been writing about about my experience with a D8/D9 upgrade this week here on Dev.to.

Before coming to EDC, I taught high school biology & other sciences. During that time, I wrote and illustrated the Dr. Birdley Teaches Science series.

While I grew up in Virginia, I have now spent more of my life in Massachusetts. Outside of work I enjoy illustration, running, writing about technology, and playing my son at chess.

Nice to meet everyone and I hope to see you in some of the forums.

Hi!

I'm not a web developer but I really want to become one. So far, I have mastered the html language (I needed it for uploading content to the site) and the basics of css. Where would you advise me to start? I don't like paid courses, but eager to grow up as a self-taught person. Thanks in advance for the advice!

Hi everyone! I'm Brieanna, I'm from Pennsylvania, USA and I'm currently a Game Dev major (graduating Dec. 2022). I fell in love with coding about 7 years ago and finally decided to pursue what I really wanted to do. Most of my experience lies with C# and C++, but I do have some experience with Java and Python as well. I also have some experience with Git (as well as GitHub and TortoiseGit), Visual Studio, etc.

I hope to do some game jams before I graduate, and maybe even find some people to work on side projects with as well. Networking is always great too! :)

Hey all~ I'm not actually a developer, but this platform keeps coming up in my research so thought I'd pop in and potentially meet some people who might be interested in collaborating, and hopefully I'll learn a bit in the process. I've done a lot with no-code solutions, and visual deployment projects; but my main interests lie in blockchain, and more specifically in NFTs. Everyone has probably heard the term NFT thrown around this year, but most people don't really understand it. I've been full time in the space as an artist for about 2 years now, and in that time my insatiable curiousity, and overall enthusiasm for the underlying tech has turned me into one of very few genuine experts in the industry. I've got a laundry list of ideas for things to buidl, most of which would raise the bar in the whole space; because I understand the vast potential, I just don't have the mindframe or the attention span to learn coding from the ground up to be able to write/format solidity and then connect it all to functional frontend. Currently I'm the Founder/CEO of NFThub.com , all built with no-code solutions, and would love to find some people interested in getting in on the ground floor of what is practically guaranteed to become a giant in web 3.0 infrastructure.

Hi, I knew about p5.js but never got to use it until today and it got me very excited. As I was looking around to find about similar packages, and more about p5.js itself, I stumbled upon this site and thought it looks cool so I registered.

I have about 11 years of coding experience, on and off, but mostly from the scientific computing site of things (I'm a theoretical nuclear physicist by training). The past year or so I learned about three.js, web-development and loved it. So now I want to learn more :)

I also want to learn about Unity 3D eventually :)

So yeah.

Hey, y’all.

I’m a noobie at web Development stuff. I have no formal education of it.

I’m a Registered Emergency Nurse in Ghana, West Africa.

I’ve always loved playing around with PCs since I got introduced to it as teenager.
Never really doing anything specific with it, not really knowing what exactly to do with it. So just learning general stuff by myself and jumping from one program to another.
Y’all know that feeling/state, I guess. Hehe.
I took a short virtual course/tutorial on graphic design, and I now feel like I like web Development/the concept of it more.
So I’m self-learning about that stuff now.
I just stumbled on this site/community by accident tonight when there appeared a suggested article in my feed, cos I’ve been for some time now searching html/css stuff more often.

I read a few of the articles, and I’m here now.

Hoping to learn more about Development, and hopefully build a career out of it, instead of just exploring and solving common computer problems for friends for free.

Hello community. A pleasure for me to be here. I am a junior developer, born in Venezuela and currently living in Cordoba, Argentina. My profession is really dentistry, since I have been a dentist for 18 years, but the pandemic turned my life in such a way that I decided to reinvent myself and here I am, after almost a year and about to become a Full Stack (MERN). I love programming and listening to music and I consider that there is no better way to earn a living than this profession. I started out of curiosity with HTML, CSS, then I learned Javascript, then React JS and now I am already with Backend. In fact I am a Javascript tutor at the academy where I learned: Coderhouse. Who'd say? Well yes, sometimes I am surprised where I have been able to go and among my goals is to be able to develop in Blockchain and to be able to have some experience programming video games. I hope to be able to share knowledge and experiences with all of you, and to nourish ourselves with so much that there is in this techno-ecosystem. Greetings to all!

Hey folks! Well, finally I have made the step and joined the community :)
Even though a little late at 38 from Aschaffenburg Germany, but better late than never to get into Web Development. I have been working as a designer for about 10 years, (Designing Logos, Print and Websites) but no development at all.

After about a year ago I have been working with HTML and CSS and and now getting into JS (selftought). It has just been so great so finally see the things you design come to life :D

Been struggling a little lately, because there is so much to learn and trying to figure out for what is next. Node, PHP, Databases, when to use which and how, but I guess this is normal ;)

Greetings and have a great week!
