hello, I come to dev out of curiosity and surround myself with more people who live technology through the pores

surround myself

I think immersion is one of the less understood elements of life-long learning. You can't really learn in the right ways just by popping some books or courses. You need to surround yourself.

Well, that's the best way to learn. You did a great head start. But do not just follow, execute something on your own to get hands-on experience.
Thanks.

Hi! I started my journey into programming with The Odin Project as well and it was definitely a great first step for me on this wild, but rewarding journey. Wishing you the best of luck and feel free to ask me questions if you have any. I love helping out newbies (especially because it wasn't that long ago I was that newbie myself!).

You surely will find something to begin with! Try to focus on a programming language to get a good idea of how it works in general and continue with other technologies, which fit well. Like JavaScript is good with HTML or C# with XAML maybe.
Later it will be easier to learn other programming languages or technologies. Also other people with some experience will be able to suggest nice articles, I guess.

I'm on the same boat. After watching some videos and reading a few articles, I've decided to take the plunge into JavaScript with CSS and HTML. I've just started and can't do much yet, but it's been fun. Whatever path you choose, I wish you good luck. :)

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the dev.to-community!

I'm Martin, I was a Senior Front End Architect / Manager at one of the world's largest interactive agencies, leading Front End Teams for international accounts. In 2018 I quit and now I'm traveling the world as a professional scuba diver and fully remote Senior Front End Architect / Front End Tech Lead for various international clients.

On dev.to I write mostly about modern Front End Development with react.js and next.js, other topics are design and pure code. I love handcrafted CSS, HTML, and JavaScript. However, a proper framework or library is essential for modern Front End Development.

Currently, I'm publishing the weekly "WebDevDigest: A curated list of the top five web development must-reads from last week" and a library of JavaScript functions in 1 line of code which you can also find on npmjs: onelinecode and GitHub: onelinecode.

If I have enough time, I write more in-depth articles about next.js + TypeScript, for example how to create multi-language pages with next export which is on GitHub:next-export-i18n and npmjs: next-export-i18n


I recommend following the general tags webdev, vscode , career and productivity and javascript, react, CSS. Head over to your Dashboard and adjust the tag weight for to personalize your home feed.


Here's a list of articles to start your journey as an successful developer and a great writer:


If you are looking for your next job, I highly recommend to buy the Book De-Coding the Technical Interview Process by Emma Bostian. It is hands down the best preparation for every technical interview.


If you're interested in my articles, follow me on dev.to/martinkr or twitter.com/_martinkr.

In case you have questions or want to get in touch, feel free to contact me on dev.to/martinkr.

And don't forget to start posting today!

Cheers!

Hi all, my name is Nat. I'm currently in the process of obtaining my Web Accessibility Specialist Certification. I decided to join the DEV Community to document that process and to write about other web dev concepts I have already mastered hoping to help out others that might be having a hard time grasping them. Figured this would be the perfect platform to combine my passions for teaching, programming and writing in a constructive way.

Hi there. at last ended up in a place where i could learn not only about the codes and things but also the working environment and the usual things a programmer or a techie go through in a daily basis. I need to understand the structures and things that we do while developing a tool. Where do i start???? Can you help me on that!!?
