Solo dev here with a story as old as time - I quit my job after saving up about 16 months of runway. So I've got a healthy amount of time to try, pivot, and try again.

My current best bet is Overmind - a knowledge-sharing app for projects and teams.

I truly don't know exactly what I'm doing, so hoping to learn from the community as much as possible.

Wish me luck!

Hello All,
I came to this space through a link on Ansible by Mr. Mwenda Harun Mbaabu. I am an old timer who saw the evolution of client server from early thick clients to the last century 2-tier/3-tier J2EE model. Now I am learning the same in Cloud especially development. deployment and monitoring cloud native applications in the most popular containerized form.
Wish me good luck

Hi, I’m Maxine!

I joined the DEV community earlier this year, as a way to learn from others and start my own technical blog.

I absolutely love DEV, the community is superb. Almost everyone here is friendly, informative about something, and/or looking to collaborate.

I also really enjoy the listings section, as it gives you a great chance to meet new developers.

Thanks for maintaining such an awesome site!

I got here via google. I found the community cool. I wanted to register.

Currently, I work on personnal set of html/css components to speed-up frontend of my projets. if it's not too rotten, I would surely share to the public. I remake almost all components from zero and design new.

So, sorry for my bad english.

Hello all,

Iv been coding professionally for ~5 years now. I consider myself a lifelong learner and always looking to learn something new.

I have been thinking about the benefits of starting to blog about programming where I can not only share my learning but also things I find useful/interesting. I think this would be a great way to not only increase my own learning but perhaps someone else will find the information useful as well.

DEV seems like a great area to begin and I look forward to meeting the community.

Good day all,

I wanted to know the difference in performance between set.has() and array.includes() in JavaScript and Google was kind enough to bring me here.
As I suspected, set.has() is way more performant, if you're interested.

I'm working in the Maritime Industry, responsible for the safe operation and technical integrity of 20+ seagoing vessels.
Writing code, creating and learning algorithms, is my hobby (almost an unhealthy passion) and although I'm getting quite proficient in JavaScript and just started to learn Python, I still consider myself a noob. Still having difficulties wrapping my head around generators, go figure.
So, I'm sorry to say, I won't be able to contribute much. Just eager to learn as much as possible. You look like a friendly bunch to me, so I'm sure I'm forgiven.

This is my way to expose my journey of learning Golang and microservice architecture . Hope I can show that making mistakes and not knowing things - is ok. Tha is the best way to learn.

Hi all.

I quit working for companies, with full-time job contract, for about 5 months.

I felt I was just doing stuff that was required for the company but that I had no pleasure doing that stuff. Working most of the times with old technology and working with old-messed-up code from others.

I'm trying to go as a freelancer and learn different technologies doing different courses and reading blogs (like DEV =] ).

Just did my first certificate, AWS Cloud Practitioner. Nothing much but was a good starting point.

Hope I can learn a lot here with all these experienced developers and I hope I can have fun implementing my ideas and getting some money (that is also important :D )

Hi there!

I'm a beginner here in London about to quit my job in finance and start my bootcamp journey. Very little experience coding in MATLAB in university.

Just completed my Ruby tree on codecademy and got to 6kyu in codewars. Am planning on sharing my journey here from day 1 so we can learn together! Also mainly to write notes down that I/other people in my shoes can refer to and find helpful in the future :)

Wish me luck!

Hello, I'm John...

I've have been in various Software Engineering and Managerial roles and am currently documenting my thinking about the various factors that make the experience of being a Software Engineer a joyful one, or at least the best it can be.

I'm pulling all of my thinking together into a website which will include protocols for 'People First' Engineering as well as blogs and podcast interviews with Engineers.

I'll be sharing some of my thinking here and am interested in thoughts, feedback and suggestions to improve our collective understanding on how to navigate the 'people' side of Software Engineering.

Decided to look for a community with similar interest to help me grow on in my journey and become a better version of myself. Hopefully we can all be in this journey together.

Hi Everyone,
I’m a SW dev with 20+ years of experience working for medium to very large companies. Haven’t worked for a startup yet but very interested in keeping the “startup culture“ going in any organization. Left Google after almost 10 years for a variety of reasons but the growing overhead and lack of flexibility was certainly part of it. Curious about where this community is headed, so I’m here :)

Graduated a year back with a computer engineering degree. Been QA in both my current and previous position. Always wanted to get a DevOps position but haven't had much luck.

Cluelessly doing LeetCode questions and taking random "devops" tagged courses right now but doesn't seem like a good plan. I'm not familiar with either but I hope I can get some guidance here .

By the way i am a new Java fullstack developer for one of the biggest banks. On top of that I have good experience in mulesoft.So i am here to learn more.
