Hello Pablo,

Keep learning and reading new stuff everyday. Moreover you have to build things on your own. If I will give you an advice it would be TRY and don't be afraid this is how we typically learn and grow about new things.

Enjoy and keep in touch!

That's great idea to start with and also link your Linkedln profile with your github account so you can perfectly present your projects.
Good luck !

Pablo Carli

Hi @sathwik14 , how are you choosing frameworks? I have been told to focus on JavaScript and just keep an eye on frameworks because there's always a new one coming up and it's hell to update a system from one to the next one, it's like toss it and start from scratch. Which is very expensive and time consuming in developing a web app.

Many hats, many skills a classic jack of all trades master of none. This may take a paragraph or two ...

I started with BASIC, and then Pascal and machine code, stripped copy protection of a few games in the '80s under the banner "Destroyed by the Releaser" after playing one that was "Released by the Destroyer". At the time this involved single stepping disassembled machine code to reverse engineer the security implementations.

They were all fairly simple up until they got very complicated. The first popular effort was encrypting the machine code, and running a little decrypting loader. Alas was easy to disassemble the decrypted code. The started making it much harder by distributing parcels of decryption across the run time and peppering the code base with checks. They won ... the aim of security is of course not to make something impenetrable, nothing is ... it is to make it so costly, expensive and time and resource consuming to penetrate that no-one can afford to ;-).

Long story short then I was a engineer working on steel production machinery, automation systems thereof, working on PDP 11/73s, MicroVax machines and an HPUX minicomputer for some while, then for a decade or so a globetrotting vagabond blogging under the moniker "The Thumb" for some years in the mid '90s (before the word "blog" existed really) moving into telecoms in the process and working on Windows NT systems and servers and a bit of Debian Linux, coding various solutions over time in FORTAN, Pascal, ASM, C, Ada, Perl.

Started building websites around then too, basic HTML with Perl CGI backends mostly and ended up working in the Telephone sector for a while, modelling GSM cells for find tuning in mountainous regions and then delivering, installing and training customers in telephone network management systems.

Have been working in support of Fisheries research for a good while now, since the arrival of children, and commitments, and debt and so on. And over that whole story have worked in mathematical modelling, liaison, technical writing, programming, customer support, quality assurance, project management, sales and more oft times managing teams in those disciplines.

With three children now, and reduced work hours (because I love my kids and want to spend time with them, unlike my dad) I have also come to recycle discard IT kit from various work places as web servers and more in my basement and deliver modest services therefrom for my various clubs and interests while I maintain treasury for a bike kitchen and a games club.

On the side, we have a quarter acre block close to town and a shortage of time to maintain it so I have for a long time hosted travellers on WWOOF, helpx.net, workaway.info and in recent years airbnb on the side and coordinate block and house maintenance.

My main interests in development at present are Python, Django, Microsoft TrueSkill and of course Javascript client-side and I run and host mainly LLUPP stacks (not LAMP or any other fashion as as I invented it worth clarifying that is Linux, Lighttpd, Uwsgi, Python, Postgresql - could throw a D on there for Django but hey I have a Bottle site too). Given all that I consider myself not a full stack but a super stack developer if you will, as I embrace not just the server up in my basement but the switches and routers as well and hence work a bit with OpenWRT, and maintain the local DNS, DHCP, DDNS and SSL needs as well.

I landed on dev.to for reasons lost to time. I think to be honest some of my searches which normally hit Stack Overflow pages (where I've contribute a good few questions and the odd answer) but increasingly on dev.to posts, and so over time have found more and more useful posts here that I've bookmarked and in time ended up pinning the site along with my other pinned sites that I keep an eye on in the background because interesting things waft by.

Hello everyone!

My name is Sepehr. I've been a Front-End web developer for two years now, Focusing on JavaScript and React.js. I've been amazed by the web environment from the start. Thinking about all the things you can implement using only code just blows my mind and makes me want to get better at it every day.

I hit a speed bump when the pandemic started. I was not motivated anymore and I couldn't bring myself to work or study.

Now I'm getting back on my feet again. Trying to recollect all the stuff I forgot and improve my knowledge. Doing so can be difficult sometimes, so I was looking for a community to keep me motivated and help me push forward when I stumbled upon dev.to community.

I'm looking forward to being an active member and experience the learning process of Front-End development with you guys. I'm also open to any collaboration on fun projects with other devs, so always feel free to contact me.

Thanks for this opportunity to post. Right now, clueless! Been doing IT support for 20+ years, leaning towards cloud tech and in particular Azure and/or DevOps. I see the trend with "bootcamps" and flooding the market with beginner developers, reminds me of when I first started but with MCSEs and Microsoft certs that meant nothing after a few years. Scary. Would love some REAL career advice and finding out this is a very loaded term, MENTORSHIP...

Python Jobs Online

Hi all,

I’m a Python developer who got sick of constantly scrolling through multiple job boards to find a 100% remote Python job. So I created pythonjobs.online to help solve my own problem.

It’s a free newsletter which aggregates and summarises all of the latest 100% remote Python based jobs of the week.

The newsletter also includes a “Learning Corner” which is a summary of any tools, articles, tutorials etc which I have found during the week and are worth sharing.

Hopefully this doesn’t come across as spammy. Just thought I’d join and share what I’ve been building, as there are no doubt a lot of other developers out there who are being forced back into the office with the inevitable easing of COVID restrictions. So I know some people are on the hunt for new permanently remote jobs.

All the best to everyone :)
