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!

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!

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.

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.

Hello! Google's been delivering 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!

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.

Hello folks!

I studied mechatronical engineering in stuttgart and decided to keep on with my profession to software and data. I am working as a data engineer at bosch and making websites for friends and co. I am mainly interested in data engineering, AI, technology as a whole and the future. I will be here to keep up learning making beautiful websites <3

Give me some questions if you want to.

Cheers, Janik

I have an Me (Mech) too (as in started work on automation systems on steel mills). Won't find many mechanical engineers here at a guess, so was sweet to see one ;-). I'd think twice about thinking of it as a "transition" as I like to think/suspect there are many skills from your engineering background that carry forward as relevant and useful. That said, life is a stream of transitions ...

(Oh and as a side coincidence I stem from down the road, in Kempten ;-)
