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.

Nevin Katz • Edited

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

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.

brieannad profile image

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! :)

🌈BruceTheGoose.Eth NFTs 🦇🔊

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 , 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.

I'm Akshaya, currently a Master's student studying Data Science and Machine Learning at UCL, London. I joined #DEV after seeing a lot of action on Twitter. I'm hoping to learn and write a lot about ML to share my knowledge and improve on it. I'm very new to writing, specially technical blogs (so this is probably my adventure this year! ;) )

Really excited to be here and connect with fellow DEVs!

nuestman profile image
Numan Usman

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.

Luis Laverde

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!

beetlejays profile image

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!

Greetings! I am a student pursuing Graduate degree in India. I still have a year to go before graduation. I have keen interest in web development and have been developing my skills for some time now. I have an average knowledge of HTML and CSS and have been working on to improve my skills in responsive design of webpages. I have recently grasp on how the display properties in CSS works except 'grid' property(a bit tricky😑). I have beginners knowledge on JavaScript and have started to learn React FrameWork(comment if it is a good idea or not). I have beginners knowledge on version control(this is a very interesting technology to me). I understand how much i still don't know about web development and i'm trying to learn step by step. I know that I have just started swimming across a vast ocean but I will perceive and swim towards my goal.
Thank you. Have a good day everyone🥳.

Hi everyone 👋, I've been a developer for 7 years, have been working on various web applications primarily on Javascript based technologies, although had worked extensively on .NET in my early days.
Currently have been working on Vue.js, React.js as the front-end frameworks creating and updating various web-components and developing RESTful APIs using Node.JS.
I consider myself lucky to have used AWS, which gave me a whole new understanding of micro-service based architecture and informed me of using cloud based infra instead of on-prem.
Currently continuing my learning and understanding of AWS and have recently taken up Python as my next adventure into a new language 😊

addygills profile image

Hi, my name is Addison. I recently dove into entrepreneurship and ran into some technical issues with my team so thought it incumbent upon myself to take up some dev skills.

It is with much chagrin that I look back at how I avoided learning to code during grad school - sticking primarily to Stata for econometrics and analysis - but have found great resources and really have fallen in love with the process and robust communities online.

Currently, I am working through the OSSU - CS while simultaneously using Team Treehouse as a more beginner friendly resource.

I am also interested in connecting with devs who are involved in/looking to be involved in startups - I am happy to help out if anyone has Economics related projects that they are working on.

Additionally, if anyone has questions about working remotely in rural America I have helped a few people move out of the traditional urban setting devs find themselves in.

vikrambhatt profile image
Vikram Bhatt

Hi Folks,

Hope you are well.

I am a Software Engineer living in Hyderabad, India. I work mostly on front end development using React, TypeScript, and Redux frameworks. I enjoy the final stuff I get to make and millions of users can play with it.

I love programming languages. I am currently working on interpreters, and previously fiddled with babel.js. For some reason, I enjoyed knowing and building programming languages, I don't know. It really push you to write scalable, performance critical code. I genuinely believe every dev should at least once create an interpreter or compiler using LISP (family) languages. I caught the programming languages bug while reading Bob Nystrom's book Crafting Interpreters.

I want to learn more about system design, architecture and distributed systems. I often find majority of app now a days are rarely monolithic systems. I enjoy software design patterns a lot, mostly UML has been really useful in my job.

Apart from work, I love playing football. I often find myself watching lot of Rugby.

Looking forward to meet like minded people.

Love you folks!
