Welcome everybody! 👋

Quick tip: you can embed rich content using the following syntax:

{% embed https://... %}

That'll allow you to embed fun things like YouTube videos:

Or you can even embed things that exist right here on DEV, like the DEV Team org for instance:

You can embed things within posts as well as comments. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give a shout!

Hello everyone,
I'm glad to joint this amazing community.
I am a web designer, graphic designer, front end developer (html,css,js) for past 5 years or so but to be honest I'm feeling like a noob here. (image for context 😅).
I seriously don't know where I stand in this field after this long time. If I consider myself a designer then besides photoshop, illustrator, css I know nothing. As for considering myself a developer I only have a knowledge of html css , bit of js (so that makes me a ultranoob).
When I look at other designers or devs I feel so overwhelmed like whoa they know so much and I'm nowhere near them. Sometimes its so depressing for me. I seriously don't know what should I do.
Have any of guys been through same ! kindly let me know. Any advice / help will be appreciated 🙂
Thanks and looking forward to this journey on dev 👍🏻

Welcome to the community, @shammisharma! Don't worry about your peers knowing more than you; even the pros don't know everything. Comparing yourself to others will only cause you to underestimate and devalue your talent. I recommend that you primarily focus on acquiring the skills necessary to get the job done satisfactorily. After all, if you're proud of what you can create using the technologies you know, then why do you need to learn new ones? As you take on new projects, you'll have plenty of opportunities to learn more about the technologies you know and explore entirely new ones. Of course, if you feel that you need to study a new one, or you just want to learn it out of curiosity, then, by all means, feel free to do so. Just don't give yourself a hard time.

Hello @shammisharma i think you need to build some project that are dedicated to front end web dev like clone of Netflix or Twitter this will not only help you understand concept deeply but also give you confidence that you are not Noob :)

Hello everyone,
I'm really honored to join this amazing community.
I am a senior STEM student currently learning Android Development. I have knowledge of Java, and recently I picked up Kotlin. Now I have started learning basics of Android Studio and building some projects.
When I look at other students I feel so overwhelmed like whoa they know so much and I'm nowhere near them. Sometimes this is actually very depressing for me. I seriously don't know what should I do. I want to achieve financial freedom by the end of this year by freelancing, internships, or remote work.
Any advice / help will be appreciated❤️
Thanks and looking forward to this journey on dev 👍🏻

Hello everyone. I have a 6 year gap in my resume and I am trying to learn new skills as I am getting ready to get back to work. I took time off to raise my two boys who are now going to school.

Hello, World! My name is Colin. I'm a high school senior who aspires to become a full-stack developer. Even though I'm primarily interested in web development, I also want to create desktop and mobile apps. I'm currently skilled in HTML/CSS/JavaScript, Java, and Python. I'd also like to learn C++ one day. To further enhance my knowledge, I'm taking the freeCodeCamp courses. The letters "INTJ" at the end of my username are my MBTI personality type.

Hendra Manudinata

Hi, everyone! So glad I can join community.

I'm Hendra, a teenager from Indonesia. I'm a hobbyist coder, currently working on custom Android stuff (ROMs, recoveries) as well as contributing to opensource projects. Loving code since I was in 5/6th grade, I'm learning more programming languages and skills. My favorite programming language is Bash and Python. I like compiling Kernel-related stuff especially for Android. All these stuff are available on my GitHub.

I'm joining so I can read many amazing stories from amazing developers around the world, as well as their tips and tricks to improve my coding efficiency. Also is a way to share my knowledge, with the hope to inspire people.

Looking forward to "blend" with you all! :D

Pranav Kural

Hello everyone!
Glad to join the community and make connections and learn more! :)

I was very passionate about web development and even did some full-time work while I was in college after high school, but after completing college had to get into a job where there was no software or web development at all, because of financial circumstances & other reasons at that point in life.

Last year (after 3 and a half years), I finally quit the job and decided to get back into doing what I love, which is essentially coding, software development and designing.

Currently enrolled in CS bachelors and studying on my own during summer break. Right now focusing on gaining really good base in JS, CSS and no-sql. Planning to learn React and React Native first, then might lean into Web 3.0 development.

Hoping to be a good developer and designer in a few months, at least good enough to do some freelancing work and support myself while I'm studying in university.

I'm here to learn, become a better developer, engage with the dev community and to contribute where I can. 😄

quantumdev profile image

Hola everyone, my name is Justin. Im a self taught full stack engineer, w/ about 20 years experience, 10 of those developing and shipping internal Enterprise software.

I was originally sys admin with scripting skills and front end design skills. Somewhere along the line discovered MSHTA and allowed me to build UIs for my scripts and soon after, full blown apps.

MSHTA has been long deprecated, so I first picked up Node, then Electron. Eventually I would grow out of jQuery and picked up React, TypeScript and Redux so I could modernize my workflow.

I came across this site last year, with so much good content, its time I officially join the community.

Hello and thank you all!

Affinito Alessandro

Hi all,
I'm a devops engineer trying to take back some good programming skills lost after years of bash and pipelines scripting.
I'm learning go since a few weeks from the official go tour, plus go 101 and some random article.
I've created a small repo to share the learning process with my colleagues to try to share the knowledge in the team and to keep up also on the long term, since we don't have any internal go project right now

My goal is to learn it deeply enough to build small advanced programs like k8s clients and network apps to make our work easier, or to be able to customize k8s plug-in written in go when needed.

olankan profile image

Hello everyone,
I'm really glad to be a part of this community.
I've been working on website development for a while now and all of a sudden I feel like I need to go into flutter dev which is what I want to do majorly as a career.(flutter developer)

Now, here's the issue...I get so lazy at times to focus or work on myself.

After so many distress, I finally decided that I need a source of inspiration...I feel like a lone ranger probably because I'm just starting from the very beginning of flutter and I do not have anyone to gear me up or pressurize me to working hard.

I'm really hoping to find my inspiration on DEV.
If there's anyone that can help me out here, please do not hesitate. God bless you.
