Howdy! 👋

Been poking around on DEV for about a month now, but haven’t formally introduced myself I suppose. I’m US-based with a CS degree but have been working outside tech since graduating (over 5 years). Currently planning a career transition within the next couple years into tech and just here to learn and refine my skills 😄

Edit: currently learning the ins and outs of web dev, but have a healthy knowledge of OOP from college (C++ mainly with some Python) and some networking.

Happy coding y’all!

Just remember -- so long as you know logic, you're a programmer! (everything else is just vocabulary) 😂

Best of luck on your journey!

Hi. I'm here to share knowledge and learn new (for me) technologies. Ask me if you are interested to learn more about multithreading, multiprocessing, asynchronous communication and event-driven architecture. At the moment, all in C++
Want to know more: bridging C++ with Python, JavaScript, Java, C#, etc.

Hello! 👋

I just finished a few courses on Scrimba and was referred to this site to write about my journey. I'm returning to building things on the web after taking 4 years off to raise a tiny human.

My favorite food is peanut butter.

Happy coding everyone!

Hello! Google's been delivering dev.to stories to my feed for about a month now. Glad that I poked around to find the community!

Consider me a zengineer, a human capital investor (meaning coach, mentor, team leader), and an Open Sourcerer (borrowing that from someone else 😂), and a life-long-learner!

To that point, I'm working on my Executive MBA at Georgia Tech (focusing on innovation and entrepreneurship) while also tightening up my coding skills (all the fun stuff: OpenAI/GPT-3/Codex, Go, Rust, Python 3.10, Svelte/Sveltekit)

After a great 15-year run with WarnerMedia (Adult Swim, NBA, HBOMax, CNN), I am onto my next adventure, wherever that may be (focusing primarily in the Atlanta Start-up scene)!

Call it Economics of Empathy or Profit for Purpose, but I'm a little obsessed with mindfulness, behavioral economics/social psychology and business' role in creating equity and making space in technology and the world.

Please feel free to say hi -- I'd appreciate it as I continue my journey!

Excelsior!

When I'm learning programming by myself, I found that I'm extremely happy to share my knowledge with others.
And I'm very good at making knowledge easy to understand too.
So I come here to do what I'm destined for and hope to make a living on that.

Hey everyone! I am working with a team of developers to bring a new way for people to come together and build Web3 companies: an NFT community. Zombstein Country Club is actively looking for developers, creatives, and entrepreneurs to come aboard to work on project proposals or pitch us ideas to fund and grow. All members will receive equity in the form of an ERC-20 token. Paid job opportunities for devs to come in Q1 2022. Let me know what you think :)

Hi all 👋

I've been a long-time lurker, and recently started to write more technical posts on my own blog. I thought it would be great to share them on here, too!

I'm a software engineer and entrepreneur, and currently working on two side projects. The first one is called Fugu, and is an open-source and privacy-friendly product analytics tool that I just launched two days ago. The second one is called Mapzy, and is a open-source store finder (not live yet).

As you can tell, I'm interested in software that's simple, open-source and privacy-friendly. Both, as an engineer and customer.

Looking forward to meeting a lot of new folks on here :-)

Hi guys,

I'm Ali from Indonesia. I used to be a fullstack (PHP + Vue) because I made web apps. Now I'm focusing to backend. Mainly I use Go and JS. But it's kinda boring to create an API or integration for third parties. So I'm starting to learn React Native for mobile. Hopefully I can build my own mobile app.

Hi!

Just recently joined dev.to and so far it has been a great experience! I am currently a US-based software performance engineer with a former life in quantitative finance. Recently got a Masters in Data Science and I am enjoying the intersection of .NET optimizations and Machine Learning / AI. My skills include C#, F#, Python and C/C++ along with a tad bit of web dev.

My interests include playing guitar, recording music and have recently taken on a goal of reading 45 books this year: github.com/MokoSan/BookReviews_2021 (currently at 37 - Github needs to be updated.). Also, on my way of completing 90 days of meditation.

My goal is to learn as much as I can by reading and contributing! Look forward to prospective interactions!

Hello everyone!

I was introduced to DEV today by a scrimba instructor after finishing up a JS course with them. I decided to check it out and I actually quite like the site.

I went to school for information systems, but only hold a basic understanding of Python and Java. I'm currently working on improving my webdev skills while also holding general curiosity for a plethora of other things.

I look forward to involving myself and contributing to this community.

Hope you all have a good one!

Well hello! I've been involved with IT in general these past few years, been intrigued and curious about all things computers for way before that and have met some really cool people along the way. And I hope that trend, of meeting cool people while gaining even more expertise in all things computers, continues.
I found this dev.to community through a Red Hat's newsletter, there was a link to Bobby Iliev's post on Bash scripting, read his post, dug around other posts here and felt that I could enjoy my time being a part of this community.

Hi all 👋

I have a goal of creating an impressive full-stack application for my portfolio by the end of November 2021. I heard I can learn some React best-practices from this community, so here I am 😊

Some background about me: I have a degree in CS, but lack good projects and experience, so that's my main focus right now. Aside from computers, I love disc golf and piano.

Hey, I'm a newbie to software development; started studying last year in June! I'm interested in finding out more about the developer community, what it's like being a developer, best practices to keep a healthy balanced life as a developer, and just the overall lifestyle really. I'd like to immerse myself in the field more and really dive into the mind-set. I have plans for my career but am still learning the ins and outs and the details of the career itself.

Hey guys,

So after much contemplating I decided to join a community of software developers, I'm hoping to learn a lot from you guys. I'm a second year software development student from South Africa, I finish next year in June. I covered a lot in the last year and a half from Python to SQL Server, Java, C#, HTML and CSS with a bit of JavaScript.

To be honest I've never given software development much thought, but in this current day and age I thought it's a smart decision. My dream is to work overseas in Europe or North America and make a life for myself there.

I'm definitely not feeling confident in myself and second guessing things at every turn. What I'm trying to do is make my personal portfolio with some projects to showcase what I can do. I have some big ideas, but maybe I'm going about it the wrong way. Would love to hear about your experiences and how you got started and what you struggled with the most.

Cheers.
Marlon
