Whoah. Hi guys. Just gotta say that I've been waiting for the next coolest social networking site, and I gotta say that this might just be it 🤓. How have I never heard of this place before?! 😲

My name's Maricris and I have over 2 years of prof. full-stack coding experience (mostly w/ JS, React, Node.js). Currently making the most of my unemployment days by working on a side project called Woga (using JS & React again for frontend but GoLang for the back).

I'm already learning a lot from awesome devs here and I can't wait for more/to share some of my blogz w/ y'all!


Hey! Welcome! I just joined as well. I'm also on Medium and saw that on your profile so I've added you :)


Hello Jamie! Thank you . :-) It's amazing how welcoming devs are here, haha. How's the learning journey going?

Not bad! Hit some snags because both my power cords for the 2 computers I own broke in one week, so currently waiting to replace them. But honestly I shouldn’t complain, because I’m lucky to have two computers to begin with. 🙈

Hey there, I joined a couple of weeks ago but never introduced myself. I'm Jerami. Sorry about the cords.

I think I've just finished writing my first article which touches on what to do when computer problems get in the way of code. I'll be publishing it in the next couple of hours.

Just wanted to say hello to some other newcomers. So, "Hello!"


Digitizing what I've been doing for the past 2 years to help me feel good/sane/balanced in life; Woga. I wrote a blog about it: medium.com/@maricrisbonzo/wogas-te....

But it's kind of outdated. Ended up not using a few of the tech I listed on there. I'll be updating it soon though!

How about you? Whatcha workin' on/interested in nowadays?


we develop and maintain various python packages to control the MeerKAT radio telescope. I have been on the team for 6 months now and its my very first dev job.


Ihaaaaaaaa! So, do you love so much JS? Great choice


haha, yes I do. It was my first language. Now I am learning Go. How about you?


Hi Maricris, I am also new to dev.to . I am a React Native developer. I want to learn backend development now as I have no experience with it.

I read that you have experience with both Node and Golang which got me excited as I am confused as to which one should I start my backend development with .

Can you share your experience using Node.js in production ? Also how easy/difficult it was for you to learn and use Golang ?

Can you share the resources you used to learn both Node and Golang ?

Thank You


Sudeepto, there is a good O'rielly book called Introducing Go, and NodeJS has many. Having a hard copy is nice but also ebooks do the job. I personally like using books when I'm learning new programming languages but other formats can be good too, it all depends. Also if I had to start a new backend web project today, I would probably choose Golang.


This is Vim girl from youtube! Happy to see you here.


Hahaha, omg hi! So awesome you know about Vim girl 😂. You made my day. What have you been up to?

Well not much. Preparing for the Technical interview 👨‍💻 to land a good Internship. Fresh out of college. Great to hear from you too.😀


Hi, I'm Vynce. I haven't figured out how to use this site yet, but maybe that's normal. I was a web developer for over 20 years, starting when Perl was normal, javascript was optional, and there was no CSS. Things have changed a bit since then. Now I'm pursuing other things that I enjoy more: talking and writing about tech, and making board games.


Hey! Fellow newbie over here :) Sounds like you've got some great experience. Do you publish your writing anywhere? And what sort of board games do you make? :D


I've got a few little articles; nothing major yet. I intend to get more serious about posting to Medium, at least.

As for board games - many kinds. I haven't gotten into the world of 3-hour euros, but I'm working actively on about a half dozen different games, including offbeat capitalism, co-op combat, and a deck builder for kids about being Fire Chiefs.

It's definitely a good way to practice!

There aren't enough co-op combat board games in my humble opinion and that deck building for kids idea is brilliant. Best of luck with it!


I love boardgames... especially novel ones different from others I've seen before.


Hey y'all!

I'm Will-- a software developer working at Cascade.bio. Grew up writing a whole lot of python and early TF for Kaggle competitions, ended up studying formal math + biology before going to work in pharma for a while. Dig a little competitive programming along the way, so broad language exposure there.

Fun fact: I'm an alum of Olin College, one of the smallest colleges in the country.

Excited to learn more!


What's your favorite place for competitive programming and what language did you use?


Hi, I'm Kait. The rabbit-hole brought me here: YouTube->Confreaks-> Molly Struve's 'Cache is King' RubyHack 2019 Talk -> @molly_struve on Twitter -> tweet about @msarit switching careers to software with a three month old. Right in the feels. I had to share too.

I joined a software bootcamp back in early 2017 when my son was 6 months old. It was in London so I could get up at 3am and be done by noon but still feed him and take care of him with only minimal babysitting from family.

I was really nervous about being a junior developer so I leveraged my past experience doing Customer Support for Uber to get a job in Support at a local startup with the plan that I would slowly transition onto the Engineering team. It was a really great experience and I've been coding in my day job for two years now.

I could really benefit from a community like this. Podcasts and articles and YouTube conferences can only take you so far.


That's an amazing story Kait, and congratulations to you! We mothers are REALLY kicking butt and taking names! Kudos to you for rising to the challenge and chasing your dreams!


I'm João, a Java/JS/TS developer that has also worked with Python, PHP, ASP, Delphi, C#. I've done some Go, Ruby, Haskell, Clojure, even a tiny little bit of Rust, Ocaml.
Also worked with RDBMS such as Oracle, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite, Firebird.
I'm 38 and still eager to learn!


Welcome! That's whole lot of stuff you've worked on!


Nice! The best part of being a dev is that we get to learn every day. :)


Hi everyone!

I'm Brad, I'm almost 58 and have been reading a lot of your welcome posts - a lot of you are young and itching to succeed.

Please allow me to submit a bit of my life story. I hope it inspires you.

I've been mucking about with programming since the old Tandy TRS-80 days. Most of you will probably not know what that means... LOL. 4k of ram. cassette for loading of programs, 80x24 green screen - ah those were the days. The source code, or should I say, individual byte codes, of a program that a mate and I developed in Z80 assembler, got published in a magazine! (And we got paid $50 - this was April 1985!)

Went along for a few years and then bought a 2nd hand IBM-XT - wow, and Windows!

A few more years saw me get to Visual Basic 6 Enterprise - what you couldn't do with that at the time! So many libraries, so many DLL's !!! Access, SQL Server, Oracle as databases. Wow.

Wrote a program (we call them apps nowadays don't we? :)) that a mate and I sold across Australia and the world (all right, just one other country) and it was selected by our Federal Parliamentary Library over an entrenched software company in the same space. Those were heady days! Oh, and it presented its interface in a web browser! (We also earned over $110,000 from that)

Also developed a Windows app for our Australian Ladies Professional Golf - a VB6 app that lets them enter players, tournaments, scores etc, and ultimately, prints cheques (checks) for the players of their winnings, and uploads the results to the ALPG website. Have been supporting them for over 30 years - the app is still going. :)

For a brief period, VB6 + Firebird DB, a fork of Interbase, for a project that worked really, really well, (and as I think of it now, was an EAV store essentially, and everyone at the time said that EAV was bad, bad, bad. And now we have noSQL. Pfftt :)) but never got anywhere because of marketing, or, not enough of it. Blergh.

Then I found PHP, mySQL - and the web (again) for a paid gig.

After a few more years, and now I'm fully using Meteor meteor.com and have just launched a new service - a mobile app development thing targeted to real estate agents - almost a "digital business card"

I will never stop coding - I love it.

Sorry for the long introduction, but for all you lovely people just starting out, I applaud you! You have something good to share with the world - never stop believing that!

Get out there, and make some noise!

You can do it!


Hey Guys

I'm Greg Sithole and I'm a Full Stack Software Developer. I am from Johannesburg, South Africa and my ultimate goal is to be a Game Developer & Designer.

I work at a Company called Entrostat where we work with technologies such as NodeJS, Angular, npm, Javascript, Typescript, HTML, CSS, SCSS, LESS, Nest.JS, Docker, Docker-Compose and a whole lot more.

My goal for the year is to at least have a couple of Open Source projects that I can say I've worked on and developed as I currently have none.


Hi Greg! I hope your dream of becoming a Game Developer & Designer comes true! Thanks for sharing!


I'm very excited to be here! I'm in my third year of university (out of four) and have been looking for a site like this since I started. It's all very well following tech news and tips articles on Twitter but I've been looking for something specific to programming. At last! My name is Katie, I'm self-taught in a lot of my favourite languages like C# and C++ but have university tutelage in a lot of web development languages and also Java. Thank you for having me! 😁


Katie, I think you're very lucky to have a community like this while going through college. I studied computer programming as an Associates before going into university and that Associates was the longest 2 years of my path thus far. I was all over the internet looking for people, communities, and answers. I'll make a prediction that DEV will come to be a gem for you in your last year. Congrats on 3 years and Good Luck on four. Cheers!


I've only been here for a short time and I already think your prediction is correct! I can't wait to get back to studying in September, purely thanks to this site and it's amazing content creators!


Heyo! I'm taking a project break after trying to constantly trying to make a project monthly for about a year now ever since I started to program. Don't get me wrong, side projects are still the best way of learning IMO but I'm spreading myself very thin here (or maybe I'm not tackling the right challenges 🤔).

Anyways, I'm learning how to efficiently design systematic programs with How to Design Programs. I think it's one of my weakest points and I want to invest a month learning about it! Feel free to give me any advice about it. I appreciate it very much!

Also, hello newcomers! 👋


Hey there! Fellow newcomer here. Sounds like we have a very similar mindset for working. I'm trying to teach myself how to use Unity before my dissertation project at university. How do you think is the best way to work? Do you set yourself hard deadlines at the end of each month or do you give yourself leniency on the projects to enjoy? :)


Personally, it's a bit of a both: I give myself hard deadlines and I'm kinda relaxed at the process to give myself joy in creating the project. I mean why not, the last thing I want to have in my side-project creation journey is absolute frustration. XD

If I didn't able to make it through the deadline, then I just contemplate and self-reflect on the development process, take notes on what I did wrong, write the solution, then try to apply it in the next project. Tbh, I rarely apply the solution since there are unique obstacles in each side-project. Though, it might be because the side projects I'm doing are vastly different each time or it could be my inexperience dealing with things but at least I could reference my notes for future (maybe similar) projects.

Do this, do that. Rinse and repeat. Hope this could help you. :)

EDIT: And welcome to dev.to btw. Hope you enjoy your stay!


Data is beautiful... so are foxes! Hoping to contribute as I learn...I found this lovely community via Twitter. Statistics are my strong suit ... currently refining syntax/catching up on coding languages..(bestPractices).. basis of jS&&py.


Hi all!

My name is Uwana. I've been a technical writer ~5 years and have started transitioning to towards software development. I'm 2 weeks away from completing a coding boot camp and have been reading a lot of dev.to articles lately. I've been teaching myself Python for ~ 1 year, and have experience with Ruby, JavaScript, Vue.js, and Django through my boot camp.

I'm looking forward to learning and sharing as I can. Can't wait to chat with y'all!


Congratulations for being at the tail-end of bootcamp! Where are you located? Will you be applying for jobs after camp or using your skills for business/startup?


Hi Arit!

Thank you! I'm in Austin, TX. I originally joined the program to enhance my own understanding of the developer experience to enhance my technical writing skills. However, learning about software engineering has piqued my interest in the field. I want to see if there's a way to combine the two skill sets. I've started applying for developer positions per my boot camp. Haven't gotten anything yet, but I'm weirdly thankful for that. I still feel like quite the novice.

I know exactly what you mean about the "novice" feeling. I struggle with that as well. That is so good to hear about your tech writing skills; as a developer, that will come in very handy in writing documentation (among other things). In fact, I would recommend getting into a few open-source projects and trying your hand at updating their documentation :D
What tech stack are you learning? Do you have an online portfolio? I've been through your GitHub - are your projects there deployed somewhere?
I have several friends in Austin, though I haven't had the chance to visit yet :)

I've been wanting to contribute to open source. I guess I'm still a bit unsure on how to get started and identify beginner-friendly projects. Right now, we're learning Rails and Vue. I'll have a portfolio and deployed project soon. We're starting that process right now.

I highly recommend a visit to Austin for the food alone. Might want to wait for fall though. The summers are brutal!

That's amazing sis. If you're learning Rails then the Dev.To OpenSource Project is PERFECT for you! Setting the environment up locally is the easiest and they have lots of great "first-timer" issues 😄


Allow me to introduce - drum roll - me! crickets ahem.. tap tap this thing on?

Third time (at starting blogging) is the charm! Looking forward to churning out the high value bits on this platform - someday, I hope to pass all those posts down to my kids, so they can know what it was like when people typed on 'keyboards', before neural interfaces were all the rage.

As a dotnet acolyte, I've been rewarded in recent years as my platform of choice has made a stunning and powerful turn towards open source. Now, I don't look like such a closed-source, windows-only curmudgeon, yay!

I've just started contributing to open source in my own little ways and in an attempt to bring exposure to my new line of side-projects, I figured I'd start to blog about my progress, which also serves, as many a dev-blogger has noted, to maintain a record of things I've done and then can't remember the specifics of. This includes anything that happened before yesterday, so I've got to act quick!

To the ~6 people who have read my few posts so far, good on ya, get in on the ground floor. You'll get to say you were reading my drivel before my audience blew up to tens or even dozens of people! :)

Thanks for having me!


As a blogger myself....I so love your attitude. (Wink!)



My name is Sapan Bodiwala. I'm from New Jersey currently working as a Senior App Developer at the Innovations Labs at ADP. I'm a big sports fan (Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Lakers, & New York Yankees).

I'm excited to join this community and learn from all you brilliant devs out there!


Hey its Max! I am a Software Developer who has worked with Python and JavaScript stacks for little over a year now. I started out with C++ and then moved onto Python to learn data structures and JavaScript for Full Stack Development. I love working with databases, especially with PostgreSQL and MongoDB. I am stoked to read and be inspired by other developers in this community!


Hi! Are u familiar with JavaScript? Wonder if you can help me. Hehe


Hi, I'm Panda aka Paula. It's great to find a really inclusive dev community with such a welcoming and helpful vibe. :) I am here to connect, find and share ideas and cool stuff, and hopefully write some posts of my own at some point as that is something I sometimes get anxious about (or just procrastinate and make excuses until I never write anything...)

I have been doing front-end dev for around 15 years now, and I still love pure HTML and CSS, but lately I am trying to get up to date on some of the new shiny stuff, such as Vue, and I am also loving the Greensock animation library.

I also love helping people whenever I can and especially chatting CSS.

Other than dev I'm a big fan of videogames, coffee, hanging out with cats and going on trains.

Nice to meet you all and look forward to reading, and maybe one day also writing :)


Hi ! A friend of mine brought me here, it looks super dope and I absolutely love the fact that this is a loving community of devs.

I'm currently working on some private repo's that are gonna be public later this year on github. The tool im working on won't do much but if it can help some people then my job is done :D Feel free to reach out to me I'm a typescript nerd and im also hardware savy. I learn Go whenever I can via O'reilly learning paths

I also live for the rules pictured in Clean Code (software engineering book) and I also am a big Object Oriented paradigm geek

Thanks for reading me 💁‍♂️🤖


hello! I'm both new here and to the dev learning community in general. Utilizing Codecademy, Treehouse, Sitepoint, and anything i can get my hands on really. so' i'll be jumping in here to pick some brains from time to time, if thats ok with everybody?! Thank You!


Hi, there everybody. I'm a newcomer in the dev industry. I'm also an entrepreneur and running a startup (tiaamo.com) and I'm also a e-commerce developer. I'm passionate about vue.js dev and I'm developing a e-commerce site using vue.js in the frontend and fire base as the backend.
Thank you.


Russell here. I am a year in to my journey as a principle engineer. This is a role I believe to be one of leadership. What do I mean by this? First that it affords me the time to fully investigate the best solutions for a given set of business requirements, within the constraints of the current Engineering proposition. Then it becomes a job of collaboration with the team to bring them on the journey you have made. If you cannot provide compelling arguments for the decisions you have made, and get the team on board, you haven't got the right answer! It is not the role of the principle engineer to dictate the solution but to light the way. The hardest skill to learn is when to disagree and commit (in the Amazon parlance). It is only possible if you do not take your position as one of manager. Only a teacher and collaborator will succeed.

Blah blah. I love to learn from other professionals and so look forward to reading content and interacting with the community here.


I feel ya. I’m at a similar place in my career, and I personally struggle a lot with knowing when to choose my battles. I do find that the amazon principle you referenced (Disagree and Commit) helps a lot these days. Anywho, just wanted to say welcome to a similar soul. I’ll be writing a lot very soon about collaboration and learning to be a more mindful coworker in some of my future articles. Feel free to follow and read along. Either way, welcomes and best of luck with leading your team. Oh and thank you for considering Principle Engineer to be a position of “servant leadership.” Sadly not every Priniciple Engineer sees their role that way. Kudos! :)


Thanks for the welcome!

Just reading your post on not bringing work home.

Yep, you cover it well. Add to that I have two young boys, and you get the guilt of waiting for them to go to bed so you can have another crack at that outstanding problem and you probably see why I ended up on anxiety medication :)

I like the ideas you list. Will give it a go and let you know how I get on.

Thanks again for your note.


Hello everyone!

My name's Parmesh. I have ~7 years of experience across the stack, but I find myself on the frontend exclusively these days.

I'm really excited about how frontend development as a whole has matured, such that it's becoming more like traditional software engineering and that it's embracing more computer science. I'm also passionate about the open source world and its continued growth.

I'm here to practice my writing, to find developer communities with diversity of thought, and to keep up with the latest community standards. I look forward to learning and contributing here.


Hi all,
I'm Muhaimin a Software developer for halsimplify.com.I'm passionate in web development also willing learn new stuff in this world web.Now i'm learning react js. I need improve my coding skills in all aspect.I think dev.to people will help me.


I think you'll find that automagic URL detection will work better for you if you always put a space after the period that ends a sentence or an abbreviation. Of course, you don't want one inside a URL, like halsimplify.com. Just the one that comes after that.

It will also make your text easier to read.


Hey guys!!!

This is Prem from India,

  1. I bumped into this just to googling out for brain.js, found a lot threaded message, felt i'm going to learn a lot from here.

  2. This is first time into a community like this, looking forward to learn and contribute.

  3. One of my hackathon projects - using user's browsing history to recognise, their industry , type of business, predicting how close they are into a product purchase journey..
    and lot of exciting stuffs :)


Hello! I´m learning in a bootcamp javascript. I've studied philosophy and social sciences, then a master in communication but now I want Switching Careers. My mentor @pekosog sent me one article from here and I like the community, there are so many things to learn in accessible language :P thanks!


Hi everyone, I have been on dev.to for some time but never saw this thread. I've been working as a full stack developer for around 5 years now. Currently my focus is with react native and flutter. I am interested in cross platform mobile apps. Feel free to reach out for react, flutter, or react native questions. Or just to say hi and chat!


Oh my god! is really going to be first ever reaction here. Didn't even thought of about finding such a rich community here and well in a social media taste. Ok, so my name is Andrew and I hail from Northern India. My passion is competitive coding, and I hope this becomes quite my introduction. Love to dabble with JS, currently learning Typescript. Hope to have an awesome time here.


I came across Dev.to today, when I was learning on MySQL query optimisation, and found this new site and wanted to go through and learn and share ideas.
Am running a startup company Aakro in India and looking to learn Database Management to deliver my clients with a seamless experience.


Hi folks!

My name's Patrick. I'm working as a full-stack developer based out of Vancouver, BC (Canada). I'm currently employed building sales demos using primarily Drupal, React, AWS. I've been at this job about 6 months, with a 2-year applied CS diploma, and I spent a bunch of time teaching myself various languages before that.

While I don't have any currently active side projects (taking a breather after school), I'm working on teaching myself more about data oriented design. I'm also itching to get more experience with React + Redux and TypeScript, and I really want to get my feet wet with functional programming (I figure more paradigms = more ways of tackling problems).



Hi everyone!

I am Oleksandr Poshtaruk, senior front-end dev in tonicforhealth.com (Ukrainian office, Kiev). Moved 3+ years ago from support L3 position to be front-end developer.

For now mostly worked with Angular (ngRx, Rx.JS) on work projects. Also write articles about RxJS and Angular on medium(medium.com/@alexanderposhtaruk).
Had a speech in Ukrainian JS conference(fwdays.com/event/js-fwdays-2018) in May, 2018 about using RxJS solution to renew tokens in iframed angular app.

Angular-in-Depth blog writer (blog.angularindepth.com/) .

Angular and RxJS mentor on codementor.io.

Recently released my video course for Rx.JS beginner (and advanced level devs as well): packtpub.com/web-development/hands....
Want to write a few beginners RxJS articles here as well (when having time, haha:). And you can ask me about some RxJS and Angular questions.

And I definitely want to learn more here about Angular and RxJS.


Thanks for course Hands-On RxJS for Web Development. I started learning RxJS through this course. Could you share your slides presentation material please.
Many thanks,Raj


Hi! Thanks for the feedback! May I ask you to leave written feedback on udemy? About takeaway materials for the course - it is github repo with Angular and codepen(master branch) examples. PacktPub is rights owner and they dont allow share video lessond slides.
But if you have some specific concern (like link on some slide or code) - tell me, I will try to help.

Left a feedback on safari books online. Cheers, Raj


Hi Devs! This site seems fun! I've been missing out on the action! I was trying to catch up with the world today and was listening to the Changelog episode with @emmawedekind that was pretty inspiring and pointed to some articles here. I have a knack for things dev and design, but spend most my time in backend NodeJS and devops, starting the learn Golang. Pretty much spend every day trying to avoid rabbit holes because I want to understand everything. Recently started a web extension boilerplate project in case anyone is curious, still rough around the edges. github.com/mandric/extension-testi...


Hi everyone! I was brought here by the amazing Jess Garson. I work with her on the developer relations team at Twitter.

I'll be browsing around here looking for cool projects and cool folks to connect with. Hopefully, I'll even see some of you at #TapIntoTwitter events. Let's be friends!

Hello World!, I recently discovered this social network, my desire is to learn a lot, to later have a lot to teach and share.
I'm fan of JavaScript, I mean client-side, server-side (Node.JS), AR-VR, etc. So I like React a lot too
My skills are:
(Proficient): JavaScript, React/Redux, 3D - Modeling with "Blender"
(Familiar): Django/Python, Docker, R, PHP


Hi Guys, Bored with routine stuff at office. Was looking for some interesting reads. My friend directed me to the best place -> "dev.to"
I am Vinod, I have experience in iOS development, used C#, ObjC and Swift. Got my hands dirty in backend development few months ago. NodeJS, MicroServices, Docker etc.
Moving towards being a Fullstack dev.
Its a great beginning starting here with this one! dev.to/softchris/5-part-docker-ser...


Hi everyone, I am a passionate Technology learner. My basic goal is to learn different techniques and design a model to integrate them. I haven't done any major contribution. it's my first post in an open source community so, I want to share a bit of my thoughts. I am learning elk stack, Jenkins and Openstack. Want to integrate them to create a modle for dev and QA testing.


Hello everyone! I'm Jesse and I'm new here. That's not really true, because I've read lots of articles on dev.to, but this is my first time actually signing in.

I've been around for quite a while. I started blogging about JavaScript back in 2005. But that blog has been collecting dust the past decade because I was hanging out on Twitter. But lately I decided to change that and go back to blogging.

Earlier today, I just published a blog post for the first time in forever. Right after, I was listening to the recent Changelog podcast interview with @emmawedekind and she was talking about writing on here, and I thought, Hey, I should post my article here too! So I did. :D dev.to/jesseskinner/formatting-dat...

Looking forward to lots more blog posts here. Can't remember the last time I was this excited about blogging :)


Hello. How have I not found dev.to before?

I'm a PHP / Laravel & VueJS developer working in the UK. Hoping to keep up to date with latest trends and always interested to hear other peoples ideas and opinions.

Hi all!

I'm Andrea, and I'm a fresh-faced Electronic engineer with 5 years of experience in embedded C programming and assembly, although just a single year of that is industry experience. I love embedded programming, but it's become too much of a comfort zone; there's a world of opportunity out there, if only I'd learn some more complex languages! I've dabbled in C++, python and Java, but have never seriously taken the plunge and made a commitment to something. Most recently, I have been learning Java again through Android Studio, attempting to make my own app (just for fun) and now I've discovered this amazing site I never knew existed I hope to use what I can learn from you all and be inspired into making some actual progress finally!


Hi Folks! My name is Coops. I'm a third year Computer Science student who spends a plethora of time working on open-source projects, including my own, Matterhorn. I've recently entered the world of game development because I absolutely love video games.

If anyone wants to talk JavaScript, Node, GameDev, burritos, dogs, or coffee let me know!


Hi people, I'm currently learning React, CSS Grids and animations. I've knowledge of HTML, PHP, Javascript and Wordpress.
I registered in DEV.TO to integrate more with the development community and contribute in some way to the community
Sorry if I wrote something wrong, English is not my native language


Hello there, my name is Haruan (R1),
I am here for a while (1 or 2 months I think), but I never introduced myself.

I'm senior Full Stack(Python/PHP/JS) developer that also worked with Obj-C and Swift, and some Java Android dev.


Hello Guyz,

I was looking for a platform where we can share ideas and knowledge about dev and related things. I am a Senior Software Engineer, mostly working as a devops engineer. I have good hands on chef, git and I am trying hands on Ansible, Docker and Kubernetes. I have used Softlayer and now trying to switch for AWS or GCP.
Would like to explore more in the related areas.

I feel a bit low when programming is concerned would like to improve on that too. My goal is to be confident in the areas I am working(also keeping a good health at the same time as I ignore it most of the time due to work) and can contribute to the society for well being.

Any suggestions or comments are most welcome. If someone need any help feel free to reach out with queries. :)


Hey everyone!

Been following the discussions and blogs here for quite some time now. Absolutely love the Dev.to community. I'll finally be posting about my work progress, side projects and junior dev war stories here.

I am a Technical Content Writer and Python + JS dev. I am a React newbie and would probably be talking about that a lot. When I am not doing any of this, I am either reading a book or writing about my life experiences. I love communities and all things #devrel get me super excited.

Cannot wait to share my work and experiences with y'all!


Hello guys

My name is Marco Antônio, I'm a fullstack developers since 2012. I work as fullstack developer at SmarttBot in Brazil. My core languages are JavaScript and Python, and now I'm studying golang to apply in my projects.

I consider myself a Devops evangelist and docker lover.

And also, I like cats :)


Hi all,

I was first reluctant to join such a developer blog. Am I too old among those young and fresh coders ? Am I rusted (pun intended ;-)) ?

I started long time ago on OS/2 writing Presentation Manager C code (gosh, back in the late eighties). I'm using Linux since 1995 and never stopped using it since. I'm a software architect in the IT department of some big company dealing with enterprise issues. So I guess I'm not the most common background dev here, but who knows.

I'm not going to enumerate my IT skills, it's not my resume ;-) But I love coding for fun, and I'll soon post my first article on Python lists. Hope it'll be read !

Beyond posting articles, I'm also looking for a welcoming community, talk to other people and improve my English.


Hi guys!

I'm Shahadat Hossain. Last few months I access this site to get help. Here I get some awesome resource. I will try to share what I know.

I'm a full stack developer working on a different marketplace like Upwork, freelancer. I'm working on Laravel, WordPress, Vue, React, Nodejs applications. I love to take challenges and long term project. recently I publish some articles in medium.

Recently I'm learning AWS, docker, devops thinks. and I am enjoying it. Excited to learn more!

I like to read books and novels. also, I like gardening. there are about 45 different flowers in my garden.


Hello Guyz,

I was looking for a platform where we can share ideas and knowledge about dev and related things. I am a Senior Software Engineer, mostly working as a devops engineer. I have good hands on chef, git and I am trying hands on Ansible, Docker and Kubernetes. I have used Softlayer and now trying to switch for AWS or GCP.
Would like to explore more in the related areas.

I feel a bit low when programming is concerned would like to improve on that too. My goal is to be confident in the areas I am working(also keeping a good health at the same time as I ignore it most of the time due to work) and can contribute to the society for well being.

Any suggestions or comments are most welcome. If someone need any help feel free to reach out with queries. :)


Hi, I am Robert.
Thanks to all your great articles on this site! ❤️
After reading many I would love to contribute stuff, too.
I will start sharing some of my experiences and knowledge ...

P.S. Please ask me anything about #graphql + #react if you like 😄


Hi! I'm Xyza. So far am a beginner on most fields. I am ultimately curious of a lot of idea. I was ann IoT Engineer, now a Frontend Developer. I've been reading a lot of articlese in Dev.to that I decided tonight to officially make an account now :D


Hey! Someone posted the link of this networking website on facebook, now, I am here. I do python/django and C++. Thinking of getting into flutter development but I am not sure and I don't know anything about mobile development. God help me, confused. Will be graduating in like 3 months.


Hi guys, am new on this platform. Hope to share more ideas, learn and #argue with codes. lol! I love breaking new grounds and take new challenges.
We can discuss if you need a helping hand.

I have 3 years hands on coding, design and video/photo Editing experience, and worked on some projects, have decided to have a team to work with soon.


Hello world!

I've been coding for fun over the past 20 years but never reached anything serious in terms of moving to professional. I always got stuck there at the tutorials. 3 years ago I started college part-time and I'm still one year before graduating but I already got my first professional position!

I'm currently working as fullstack web with Angular 6 and .Net although I've been doing bits and pieces in React a year ago. I'm interested in learning as much as I can.
My dream is to build educational games for my children as they grow up, so they can use those for learning.


Hi everyone. I have been reading stuff on this website for some time. Finally decided to sign up and become a part of this.

I am a software engineer working primarily on Laravel and PHP for more than 6 years.

I hope to learn a lot of things here from awesome people and willing to share my knowledge as well.

Thank you for building and keeping this community alive!



I have worked on a project called "Mp3 Music library".I made this project in early days of my software development.I love this project because it was my first GUI based software which fetch songs from api (that was also made by me) and I made it with my heart it is very nearest to my heart.But my professor didn't loved it he said you got to be more productive in thinking ideas and implementing them at first it broke my heart but lately I realized that yeah he was somewhat right and I moved on with previous learning. Now I am a Web App Developer

My Tech Stack is: C# , asp.NET core and JavaScript


Did the professor demotivate you?

I know exactly who you are talking about!


I'm happy to be part this dev social plotform. Dev.to is a unique plotform and we can learn more from it. I'm a experienced person from LAMP, PHP, node.js, MySQL background. Looking for job as a freelancer or full-time job in any country. Currently making the most of my unemployment days by working on a side project in Vue.js, Laravel, PHP7 and Bootstrap.


Hi guys 😊. I am happy 😃 to be on this platform and get to interact with other developers.

My name is Cliff and I have the 2 years of programming experience using languages such as Java Android and JavaScript with frameworks like React, Angular js, Node js and express js.

I am learning a lot from blogs posted on this platform and I hope to also start posting blogs and share with other developers.😃


Hi guys, I'm Robin. A long (?) time software developer, here to help you be more effective in coding and at the workplace.

I started coding on a ZX Spectrum (1), but got semi-serious only later using Turbo Pascal. Got to administer the school's Linux servers (we wanted to download movies using wget with an unimaginable 20K/sec speed). Got in good company, learned C, went to uni.

Got some research experience, also worked as a programmer at Ericsson, Epam and finally Google. I stayed there for 5 years, tech lead a small team for the second half.

Recently I went entreprenurial with family & friends. I'm actively working on juremy.com (tool for legal translators) and my book [Programming Without Anxiety][treetide.com/book/programming-with...].

I also belive we programmers don't read enough code. So I want to make good code reading material accessible - to that end I open-sourced Underhood, my code browsing frontend (2).

Feel free to ask me about situations related to programming as a day job (stuck? unmotivated? insecure? bored?). I'll do my best to answer.

(1): I try to recreate the atmosphere in a modern environment, see twitter.com/hashtag/zxhs and github.com/TreeTide/zxhs.

(2): This is pretty early stage yet, can have a peek at codeunderhood.com.
Code at github.com/TreeTide/underhood.


Hi guys, just want to say that I'm looking forward to learn more about programming and CS.

My name is Rafael and I have 3 years of experience in .Net with WinForms, and I'm always searching to learn more about web development and SQL. Currently working in some projects on my own to learn and study more about patterns and architecture. Feel free to look at my Github and comment into my projects to help me develop my skills.

Thank you and sorry about my grammar mistakes, I'm from Brazil and trying to learn English on my own.


print ("Hello Community!")
greet = ("I'm happy to meet you all! ")
print (greet * 1337)
my_heart = input ("Do you like my greet? y/n ")

if my_heart == ("y"):
print ("Thank You! :D")
elif my_heart == ("n"):
print ("-,-")


I'm so glad I found this amazing community of developers. I'm a passionate Ruby on Rails beginner. I love to ask and give opinions to questions :)… Please, forgive me in advance if my question gets too much.


Hey y'all - I learned how to code last year at a bootcamp and have been working as a developer for 7 months now. I'm starting to learn Python, having originally learned with JavaScript only. Excited to join this learning community!


Hello. I'm Waris. Coding is sort of a hobby and I'm not so good at it. I know python quite much. Have worked on a personal project of a homework manager application for students. It was going well, almost completed it, the databases, the back end, everything was fine until the GUI wasn't working for some reason. So I left the project and have been studying kotlin ever since. Still learning.

Hope to make friends here who could help me on my journey of becoming an actual developer.


Hello! I’m an engineering manager with a physics and computer science background, here to learn! I recently moved jobs from a machine learning, big data system written in Scala, to a front-end focussed one, where everything is React and node with a Go backend. So I’m here to educate myself and get some support hopefully along the way! 😊


Whoah. Hi guys. Just gotta say that I've been waiting for the next coolest social networking site, and I gotta say that this might just be it 🤓. How have I never heard of this place before?!
like it


Wow it's amazing. I'm medium. creator Lightny Wizard who strives to learn everything from this Multiverse Currently I'm learning Angular along with HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT. I'm just nooooob who was just started getting fun using Android App,ROM,WebApp, Embedded ((Automation)).


Hi everyone! I'm a UX and graphic designer planning to lurk here to try to learn some more about development and coding, and maybe ask questions. Fun fact: I play pick-up basketball with a bunch of other middle-aged women.


Hi guys, my name is Mohanad and I'm a mechanical engineering graduate from Egypt. I specialized in mechatronics and got really interested in embedded systems. Then my friend who went through an experience in making his own business, talked to me about being an app developer (mainly Android at this point). I'm still in the very beginning of the learning phase, but I'm really excited about this network and feel like I'll be learning a lot from everyone here and that people are very welcoming 😀


Whooooh it's amazing. Hi guys I'm a medium here begin learning WebApp Development using Angular/Fire along with HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT. Just nooooob, Just Started Fun with Android App,ROM, WebApp Development wow it's awesome 🤩🥰😜


Hi Guys, Just joined & glad to be here.
Cycons is a Cyberrisk Consulting Services Startup and my fourth children. :)
As a consultant I am open for exchange knowledge & experience.
May the Force be with us.. Great community.


Hi everyone.
I'm Luca from Italy, Full Stack Something, Wordpress Engineer, bla bla bla.
Coding since 1987.
Love this platform. Finally a dev-oriented social super cool thing /w a super-cool merchandise!

Love you all.


Hey all,

It was about time for me to find a new social place, and now with the integration with repl.it, you got me for good!

My name is Rafael and I've been developing this web card game for 5 years... wow it's been a while. So the game is open source and written in JS with jQuery, the backend is Node with mongoDB, no frameworks nor engines.

I also love maths, shaders and optical illusions. I try to help at stackoverflow and I've made some neat stuff at codepen. Do send me meems 😆


Hey there!
I am Clara and I feel in love with programming while doing a coding bootcamp in Berlin. Previous I was working in law.
Now I am a teacher for the same Coding Bootcamp but in Tel Aviv and a web developer :)

Mainly working with Ruby on Rails but also curious what other languages and frameworks hold. What's your favourite language/framework?


I just happened upon this site while reading on reddit. I’ve been teaching JS for 4 years and use Java and previously Robot-C for our FTC robotics team. I just became a dev this year so my Comp. Sci. & Engr. students could publish their apps in the Google Play Store, MrB1543. play.google.com/store/apps/develop...
I have a steep learning curve, but I’m hopeful that insights from others will help me and thus help my students.

I’m stuck right now trying to simplify my code on a Genius Hour Projects app that keeps crashing. I use MIT App Inventor, and it gave me some tips that I’m trying to figure out what they mean.


I'm Joe! I've been a software developer at Microsoft for almost 4 years now working mostly in backend c#/sql server.

What brought me here was a desire to learn more and improve myself beyond just what I learn at work everyday. I want to get into some personal projects, but not sure where to start. I really like the idea of data science since I'm a big Power BI fan. I'd also love to get into python/frontend/anything cool 😎 I'm open to suggestions.


What's up!

I'm Advaith. I can't wait to start creating, sharing, and learning from the content on this site! I'm really interested in telling compelling visuals. My core languages are Javascript (love using D3) and Python. And this is my latest project: (North American Industry Visualization)[naics-employment.surge.sh/].


Hi guys. I must say I am really impressed by dev.to this looks really nice. I had exactly the same thoughts as Maricris as I first visited this site today: "How have I never heard of this place before?" 😄

I'm Dimitri and I work as a researcher at the Fraunhofer HHI in Germany. My work is mostly focused on high quality 360 video streaming. I am also involved in several standardization activities such as 3GPP and MPEG.
From coding perspective I am more a C++ & Python guy but I was also involved in some projects for Android and Unity so that Java and C# is not really a big deal for me now 😄
Last project of mine was a pure JavaScript implementation of a 360-degree video player based on the latest MPEG spec. At the same time, it was a great opportunity to learn some JS and I have to say that although I've read a lot of negative stuff about JS (mostly jokes how silly it is etc.) on the Internet, JS really impressed me. I'm a big fan now 😄

Have a nice day to all!


Hello everyone! My name is Witt and I'm in the SysOps world with a focus and fascination for monitoring, scripting, and automation. My GOTO (😉) languages are Python and Powershell. I'd like to learn Golang at some point in the future too, but I'm focusing on getting more experience and deeper knowledge with Python right now.
My current, long-term goal is to land a job on the DevOps side of things using my years of systems and monitoring experience and insight to the dev world.


Hello! I've been seeing some great posts on this site and decided to join and see what it's about :)

I've been blogging for a while on my own site, so I'm borrowing a post from there to kick things off: dev.to/bgschiller/mongo-schemas-wi...

Right now, I'm excited about TypeScript and how to make node express servers more ergonomic and type-safe. Hoping to have a post on that finished in a couple weeks.


In July 2018 I decided that my job at the time had kind of taken it's course and there wasn't really anywhere else to go with it. I was working as a remote tech support agent for a company based out of New Zealand. I loved the people I worked with, and working from home, but I had learned pretty much all I could for that position, and as a very small, established company, there wasn't much room for growth or other opportunities. So, I started teaching myself to code using online tutorials, videos, books, etc.

By November, I was applying for an internship with a local company who had an amazing paid internship program, were really into self-taught developers and those who had taken a different track, and had a great success rate for their interns. I got a call back and they let me know they actually wanted to hire me full-time. I was floored. I was still very much a newbie and had a lot of learning to do, but they were willing to take the risk on me, take me on and teach me the ropes.

I started as an Entry-Level Developer with the company in January and have learned a ton since then. I absolutely love my job, they seem to be happy with me and my progress, and I'm ready to keep learning and leveling-up. When I saw someone I follow on Twitter mention dev.to, I figured it would be a good place to connect with other Devs and help me keep growing and learning. So here I am! I'm super excited to be a part of this community, to become a better developer, and to grow.

Currently I work with mostly Python, MongoDB, PostGres, and AWS on the back end, but I also work with Go a little as well. I'm really interested in leveling-up my Python skills more than anything.


Hello Guys,

Awesome platform for us, Good to be here and surrounded by amazing developers :)

mY Self Jaydipsinh, Having 6+ years of experience in Information Technology Industry, Working as full stack developer.

Just Before a month, I quit my job after realising that spending good time with family and work in my own style is much better than tedious job culture. I started working on some product ideas, meanwhile i got involved in freelance projects and living healthy life.

Right now i am working on Image Processing app with MEAN stack technology and tesseract.js


Hola and buenas!!! First comment and hopefully not my last. I know I'll have plenty of questions as I embark on my journey. Learning to code at 46 and looking to change my career. I look forward to learning from all. Thanks.


Hi everyone, my name is Dean Kayton. I am from Cape Town, South Africa. Currently living in a remote area of South Africa called Kosi Bay.

First and foremost, I am an approachable person who responds quickly, please feel free to get in touch.

I am primarily a Python developer with some recent experience in Julia. I moved into programming from software quality assurance (before that I was a transport engineer, having completed a master's in civil engineering in my previous life!), automated testing, then Devops and cloud deployments. Big fan of infrastructure as code and using tools such as Docker, Packer and Terraform.

I am focusing more and more on statistics and datascience at the moment, having most recently worked in supporting a bioinformatics team.

I like to be able to interface with a broad set of industries and disciplines but for me, machine learning is where I want my future to head.

I use gitlab - gitlab.com/dnk8n (more recent) and github - github.com/dnk8n


hey buddies i'm a newbie to this community and whole programming world as well,right now i'm persuing my graduation in computer science and engineering.

so guys your little help will be much appreciated 🙏.


Hi guys, I am excited to bring my development experience to a whole new level by signing up to this site. It is weird that I have never heard of this site before lols XD. Looking forward to learn new things.

I am a Web Developer for 2 years but I am not really confident with my skill and I know this site will be a big help for me to learn new stuff.

I know this devs here are already senpai .


Hi everyone,

I graduated in Computer Science in 1998 and was an awful coder. It traumatized me to this day :)

I am now trying to relearn to code specifically web/front end development to see if I can overcome the trauma and shame of being a CS graduate that cannot code. :) I'm currently doing the #100DaysOfCode challenge following the #freeCodeCamp curriculum, you can follow me on Twitter @franciscaeiro.

I love technology but mostly what it can do for people. I have started introducing my kids to coding at the age of 8 and always incentivize them to learn as I honestly believe that coding is going to be the next literacy frontier.

If you love giving newbie tips and laugh at silly questions I'm probably your guy. :)

I'm a huge Star Wars fan so I'm more than happy to "trade" Star Wars fandom knowledge for coding tips.

Looking forward to checking the dev.to community!



Hi All,

This is Sivanthi. Working as a Senior full stack developer in one of the company. i'm from Chennai , India. I have 9 years of working Experience with Javascript. recently working with Angular, React, Redux , Node.js etc. Joined here to learn and teach more.


Hi everyone 👋👋👋

Glad to be a part of this community. I'm founder of TECLA. We are a hiring marketplace that connects companies connect with remote developers throughout the Americas.

I used to build iOS apps so I'm proficient with Obj-C and JavaScript, but I can't say that I'm at a professional level with my coding.

In my "off" time, I'm building a clicker RPG game with 3 other colleagues.

During the day, I'm focused on helping companies and engineers improve remote culture and distributed team collaboration.

Looking forward to sharing and learning with this community.

See ya around!


Hello Devs!

I’m a veteran designer who has always been fascinated by the code and systems that make websites and apps do what they do. I was around in the early days of the web so I’ve perpetrated my share of really bad JavaScript (and some really bad HTML and CSS too if I’m being honest). I really got my start in front-end work when I had them pleasure of working with Hampton Catlin, the inventor of Sass and Haml, back at Moovweb in 2013. I found Sass to be a very potent introduction to development because it was both an extension of my CSS skills but also introduced me to Rails and that paradigm of project structure and approach. Now I know my way around modern PHP, Rails, a little React, and hopefully much more Vue in the future. I’m also interested in SVG, Animation, Static Site Generators, and Pattern Library tooling.

I’m in the process of rebuilding my DIY php-based personal site with Kirby 3 and a custom CSS framework based on Harry Roberts’ InuitCSS. (Of course that means I need to create a Vagrant box that perfectly matches my MediaTemple server, which requires me to figure out how to update PHP to 7.2 on an old version of Debian, which requires that I ... so much to think about!)

I’m looking forward to learning more from folks here, sharing some ideas and challenges, and growing as a developer-designer hybrid.

If anyone ever needs help with CSS (any approach or flavor), hit me up. I love CSS and sharing ways to make it work wonders for both designers and developers.

Thanks for having me!



Hello world! I found this place because lots of much smarter nerds that I listen to / follow kept mentioning it.

One of my favourite things these days is how easy it is for a non-programmer like me to spin up a website using the latest cool toys with a service like Netlify.



Hi !

I'm @rvictorino ! I've been a professional dev for approximately 2.5 years now, and I'm loving it!

I currently code in Groovy (Grails Framework) at Kazaden, a french start-up. I'm mostly a Java guy, but I enjoy JS and often find myself trying to learn new programming languages with a lot side projects that I never finish ¯_(ツ)_/¯.

I spend some time on exercism.io these days too; getting great mentoring and learning a lot (if you don't know exercism, go check this awesome project asap).

I've been stumbling upon a few articles on dev.to the past few weeks, so I thought I might join this community too!


Hi guys, I'm an experienced dotnet + full stack dev/architect (11 years+ experience in professional software dev).

I love all things software, and take every opportunity to learn something new and share that to others to make them better software engineers.

Would love to contribute to a new open source project/pet project if anyone is seeking help so that I can learn new things and hopefully also share my knowledge.


Hi guys, My name is Stephan from the Netherlands. I've been a WordPress/php/javascript developer for the past 18 years or so. I started out as a php and actionscript developer and grew into a development manager role. I then moved on to become a freelancer, building mostly WordPress stuff.

After two years of downtime due to medical reasons, im now working as a parttime WordPress developer at a local marketing company, and spend my free time writting and tweeting about anything WordPress dev related.

And I just joined this site because it looks like a great community :)


Hi fellow devs.

I am a full stack developer at BitcoinAverage, we provide realtime and historical crypto price data for all sorts of startups and projects.

I'm also building my own personal organization/productivity/self-improvement software on the side called LifeHQ, I'm about to launch it in a few days so that's exciting.

Overall my native language is Python but I dabble in NodeJS and Javascript (can't escape it even if you want to). I also like experimenting with more obscure languages like Elixir, Elm etc.


I am Hadrien.
I've started working on conversational bots to automate medical intake & triage process using RASA framework. Super interesting & challenging project so far. If anyone has good reads on the subject, please share!


hi everyone,
I've just joined but I've been reading dev.to for a long time. I'm a software engineer based in London, I work primarily on building software and web apps for the enterprise.
I'm currently working in an open source project for building dynamic forms in Angular, it's called FormQL (github.com/formql/formql).
I'm here to connect with others and learn, I really enjoyed reading the great articles and I like how everyone is so welcoming!


Whats up devs.
To be honest I dunno how I bumped in here but its the coolest site ever.

My name is Sunil and I am from India. I am freelancer web dev, just an year old. Open to learn and contribute.

I have a website of my own. Feel free to visit my website

Hope to make good friends here, learn and share the knowledge.


Hello world! I've finally made it down to the DEV community and I have so much excitement.

My name is Shanice, I'm a current college student studying Game Design. I've been programming for a couple of years, but haven't done anything spectacular yet. Currently learning Python, Javascript, Blender and Unreal and it's honestly scaring me, lmao.

I look forward to learning from everyone here, sharing my meetup adventures and the tricks and tips that I've picked along the way.


Hi Shanice! Good to have you here! Game design is a topic that I don't know a whole lot about, but the little I've seen is really interesting, especially tying in Python and Javascript (which I know a little about) into Blender and Unreal (which I don't). Anyways, I look forward to seeing your posts! Let me know if you have any questions about anything :)


Hi y'all! Where has this place been my whole life?! This place is amazing and I'm excited to see all the cool things everyone has going on! A little about me, I've been a data scientist for 7 years and has started getting more interested in how Python can be used outside of data science. Specifically I've been exploring how I can make hyper-personalized applications to myself that can help me make decisions throughout the day. I'm excited to share and learn with you all!


Hey all! My name's Emeruche Cole. Self-taught full stack developer. But lately back end has proved to be a real headache, plus it's kinda ugly. So I'm going frontend now. I know HTML, CSS,vanilla JS, React (with Redux), and Python's Django and Django REST frameworks.
Most beautiful things I've learnt and I'm fascinated about is React and APIs - wonderful lovelies!
I'm working on a side project with a friend online I haven't met, and do not hope of meeting! We mean to get serious with it and monetize it. So my first question, is it safe working on a project with someone you've never met before, but is more advanced than you, and you feel will cheat you out of it?


Phew!!! Vue brought me here. I'm toying with Vue to create my next single page Web App.

I have tried working with React and Angular, but frankly speaking I'm able to get on with Vue much faster.

Most of my experience has been into Mobile app development and Backend development using Java. I wanted to start with web app development anyhow this year. So here I am, after 10 years of software development, back to square one :D , and I'm loving it.


Hi, my name is arinze I'm a new to software development...started my journey last year September on codecademy and I enjoy working with the MEAN stack, although I haven't quite gotten a hang of it..I'd really like to start building my own projects soon and quit jumping from tutorial to tutorial lol...my goal is to build software that can help accelerate development of underdeveloped countries


Hi! I'm brazilian and bachelor on physics. I love math and sciences. On code, I like PHP as backend serving Rest API while I consume that on frontend JS. I like Slimframework, React, React Native and SASS. I'm Linux user and enthusiast. I like bash to automate my jobs as much as possible.


Hello Friends, My name is Vishal. I was surfing and some how I landed on one of the blog on DEV, It got my attention and after that I dig little deeper and what I got is, this really a cool networking. Love to be a part of this community to learn, to share and have some fun.
Little more about me. I have 7+ years of experience. Worked on different things e.g. Web application, creating Libs, Big Data, Kafka etc. Now working on Gemfire which is IMDG (In Memory Data Grid) and Apache Spark.
Primarily working on Java but have used Scala, C#, C++, Cuda and JavaScript


My name is Enrique René, I'm brazilian and bachelor on physics. I love math and science. On code, I like PHP on server side, serving as Rest API while React and React Native consume that to render beautiful screens which I love building. My favourite job is on frontend development.


👋 Hello everyone,

I'm Thiago, product designer and learning Js and React. I'm actually building GitDuck, a platform to help people to learn to code by watching other developers work.

Excited to learn more here!


Hi guys, I am Pushkal Singh. I came across this community through an article on CSS Sigrid. I found the article useful and interesting and to follow the author I joined. On joining, I found that this is a rich community full of enthusiast and knowledgeable people. Currently I am a beginner in web development. I am learning it to change careers. I have 5 months of experience in the field with knowledge of HTML CSS3 jQuery Bootstrap PHP MySQL. I am a beginner in the field though I have 9 years of experience in other fields (mainly management).


Hello I'm Reina, I found the DEV community on twitter and got curious. I'm a math teacher and my goal is to become a web developer/web designer. I found coding to be so interesting. I survive on Dove chocolate and my fav Cuban coffee. I'm just getting started with Basic JavaScript and finishing up CSS grid on FCC. I'm glad I found this community. It's cool.


Hello, lovely people.

I've been working in tech for about 16 years, covering a lot of ground, including full(ish) stack web dev, infrastructure and a lot of database work. A while ago I took a year out to complete a Masters in Machine Learning, and I've been enjoying the surprisingly unhelpful job title of "data scientist" as a result. For coding-fun I work on miscellaneous data projects and experiment with game development, which I am very bad at but enjoy all the same.

I'd like a quieter, gentler place on the internet to talk about callbacks or mixins or whatever without people yelling at each other or sweating blood. That'd be great.


Hello , I'm happy to join such a great social network site.
My name is Malek from Syria, I'm Java developer since very long time (since Java 1.3)
Now I'm full-stack developer working with native tools and frameworks
like react, react native for web and mobile apps
and for sure Java as back-end and express-js sometimes
I brought here by someone I follow on twitter, I read about the site and liked the idea of social network for developers so I joined the party


Hello house. I've been an avid reader of dev.to, The sense of community here is so strong, also the emojis are really cool 🤓. Thanks to the teams @thepracticaldev that made this possible.
I'm a self taught developer with a background in Java. Currently, i'm working with PHP/Laravel and learning ReactJS. In my spare time, i build apps for Android whilst learning Kotlin.
Glad to be here!


Hey y'all,
Literally just joined. So, about me - by day, I work as a consultant - biz/tech strategy, and by night, I try to keep up with software engineering roots, which is mostly focused on building enterprise applications typically using Java as middleware, sql dbs, getting into nosql dbs, front end development and some devops, which btw is way over my head.

Happy to be here and hoping to learn + engage with many of y'all.


Hello fellow knowledge seekers! you guys are doing great! Glad to be a part of dev.to. Let us have some fun by doing something meaningful and spreading our knowledge to the rest of the members. Looking forward to learn and contribute.


Hey y'all!

Finally a nice site where I can learn things and find inspiration!
I'm an undergrad majoring in CS in final year. I mostly work with C# and Python.

One of my favorite projects was a chat application that communicated over web-sockets. Learnt a lot of web security principles and industry practices. This also gave me the necessary knowledge to go ahead and build my website from scratch!

Great to be a part of this community!


Hi Guys! I'm Kath! A Bachelor of Science in Information Technology graduate, but I am currently working as a Graphic Artist. I.T. is really a large field, I thought I am into software developing but didnt learn a lot of language. We are focused on VB.Net and I am afraid to say I am not qualified. But now, I found what I really love. I love designing and I love to solve problems.

I wanted to be a Wed Designer or a Front End Developer. I hope I will be one, soon. And I know I will learn a lot here. Thank You!


Hello there!
New to the site and I love it!!
I was brought here by a good friend of mine who I’m fortunate enough to be starting to work on a project next week.
For most of my development career I have been working on the backend with C#. For the past year or so I have been doing more frontend development using Angular.
A lot of what I’ve been learning recently is about cloud technologies and how those could be applied for my projects.

I can’t wait to read all about peoples experiences here!


Hi! 👋I'm late to joining dev.to, but happy to be here! I'm an Analytics Manager with Amazon's Prime Video and based in Seattle. I'm really passionate about developing others, especially people who are excited to learn and love data. I've been working in analytics for about 10 years, mostly in startups prior to joining Amazon a couple years ago.

My favorite project right now is a co-teaching pilot with North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. I'm currently on the plane back from spending two weeks on campus teaching their students on "Data-Driven Leadership" and how to bridge the skills gap between college and industry. My goal is to get them excited about the tech industry and de-mystify the way we run our organizations so they can figure out the right place for them to succeed.

I've been a longtime lurker on dev.to, but my students really inspired me to dive into my own learning journey even further, so here I am. 😊🏁


Hi everyone. Found this site and thought I would give it a chance. My situation is little different from the post I've read so far. I will be retiring at the beginning of 2020 and I want to code. I was able to get my degree for software engineering while working. There's one draw back. I haven't been able to develop a portfolio and I have no experience. I would like to be in a position, once I retire, to take on some freelance work in front-end web development.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks for reading.

Hi guys,

My name is William Cai. I'm based in Beijing China. I have been working in identity management field for 15 years. My favorite project is Speedle open source project. It was published on GitHub github.com/oracle/speedle recently. My colleagues and I spent quite some effort on it. And we believe it is the best product in access management area in the world. I hope we can contribute a bit to the world with this product.

thank you and look forward to discussing with you on interesting software development questions.



Oh hey! 😊

I'm Julia, proud mom of @DevRelAvocados and all sorts of 🥑shenanigans @nexmodev .
In the past couple of weeks I've been dipping my feet into the world of Node-RED, and here I am, tinkering my nights away one flow at a time.

I tend to learn by sharing, so I'd like to lurk around less and write more - all things Node-RED, programmable communications, DevRel, developer communities, JS and some sprinkles of design on the side.

My favourite project is one I'm currently working on - I've started a series of weekly tutorials about building communications into your Node-RED applications. - The first one just went live this week 🎉:

I love it for a number of reasons, but working with an open-source project, the great community behind it, the constant challenge of learning, building and breaking things comes to mind :)


Hello World, नमस्ते(Namaste).

Just had my eyes on the dev.to repo on GitHub and found out such an amazing social network!

Excited to be here and interact with people and exchange information and ideas.

Thanks to the founders of dev.to for making this place. This thing looks amazing.

My name is Vatsal. I'm from India, just completed my undergrad B.Tech in Computer Science. Have been doing some fun projects testing out my creativity and skills what I've learnt.

Will share my stories through posts soon.


Hello dear Aliens!
I just signed in because I like the cleaning face of this site.
I came to stop here through an e-mail received from Dan Bader talking about "dev burnout" and this topic brought me to an article on this website, written by Daragh Byrne.

I really wish all success for the devs of this space and that we may grow up as human beings, learning with each other.


First time mom of a very hyper and beautiful little girl. Was a Gaming Editor for 9 years, worked with four different esports gaming companies. (Huge Gamer Here 😊) Trying to juggle school, work, and a household. Also, coffee is everything to me.☕️


Hey everyone, dint knew about this website so here i’m ! Waiting to see , meet and discuss !

I’m currently works on a Dev*Ops position for a fin-tech. Been involved with FLOSS world for around 10 years now. Currently learning rust and looking how to change the web and the world a bit ;-)


Hello everybody:)

I'm a Russian girl with medical background who decided to change the career to IT.
I'm a self-taught Junior Developer. My first language is Python and right now I'm learning Kotlin for Android dev.
I'm excited to be a part of this community:)


Heelo guys, I've just discovered this social network!

My name is lincey I'm a software developer student for 2 years in college, I'm trying to learn some new things (even if it's difficult but I'm trying my best) and I'm looking for some advices. Currently learning in c#in back-end and front-end only html css for now. I cant wait to learn some more 😊


Hello, fellow programmer! I was looking for a place to enjoy the company of other programmers.. Looks like I have came to the right place!

My name is Or, and I'm about to join the army soon. I'm a student and I'm in love with coding, and especially with full stack development. For the past 3 years I have been studying it at my school and outside of my school.

This site helped my a lot with React and I though it would be nice to hop on the train and start hanging here, learning and helping as much as a can!

Hope to learn a lot from you, and thanks for the help you already gave me!


Hey everyone. Just getting signed up and everything filled out. I've been mainly a C# developer for the better part of the last 12-13 years or so, and now I also run the developer blog at our company.

We just got it going late last year (after years of "we should totally do that"), and chose Medium initially due to the ease of having a single "publication" that individual team members could contribute to and own their own work. It's important to me that each author get credit for what they write. With Medium, I could add each of them as writers to the publication and we could review and give feedback on the submissions prior to the publication date.

I'm not a fan of the direction Medium is going with the strong arming every reader into being a paid user, so I'm considering alternatives. Dev.To seems like a great place for developer focused articles, content, and discussions, but being new to it, I'm not sure how, or if it's even possible, to simulate the workflow that we currently have.

Any feedback or insight from users that have made a similar journey would be much appreciated.

I just found the "Organization" section. Reading up on that now. It sounds like exactly what I was looking for. Awesome!


Got into dev.to when referred here by a colleague. It's interesting to see forums like this to pop up. I was a coder turned into a systems tester turned into interaction designer turned into project manager who turned into engineering manager who took a side step to become product manager. I nitpick about stupid interaction/UX mistakes (favorite: UI's with multiple languages at a time - did they run out of strings to translate in the contract?). Really interested in business problems of organisations who make money with software, directly or by using software systems. Dad, husband, retro computing nut (Apple 2 & Macs).



I'm Kayac lived in Taiwan.

Begin when I start looking the documents on MDN and found this cool place.

I'm currently work on Web Casino Game Development using Javascript.

And nice to meet you 👋.


Wow. I did not realize this was a social/blogging site. Ok.

Hi. My name is Matt. I am a programmer. Yeah that sounds like an addiction. It is. I like to program. It's why I've never been a team leader or a manager or anything like that.

I'm a Perl programmer. Oh I can do Python, but, ugh, shudder; sue me. I have done lots of SQL, C, Java (more ugh) and going WAY back some C++, Fortan, Basic and RPG II.

For some strange reason I am really hooked on source code control. I have written some sort of wrappers around every source control system I have ever worked with:
CMS (extra credit if you can tell me what OS that ran on), RCS, SCCS, CVS, ClearCase, Perforce, SVN and git. In fact, my git wrappers total 58 shell scripts and functions whose 'wc' stats are

8328 25985 212823

not to mention a Perl scripts whose purpose is to take the comments in a Changelog formatted file and turn them into the commit message of a commit. On the fly. During the commit. Hmm, perhaps my git setup should be my first post.

Anyway, that's all for now. Time for bed. Cheers.


Hi, I'm Iqbal, indonesian front end developer and UI UX Designer since 2015. Just joined the site about a month ago and always open this site every morning before work and at lunch since then. Come here looking for friends ( maybe someone who come from the same country or overseas ) and great reference to refresh my brain :-)


Good day to all members and Dev staff. My name is Ryan Els. I started programming about 10 months ago. I am very passionate about the core frontend web technologies (HTML, CSS and JavaScript).
I also have an interest in memory training techniques, like the Major Memory System, and I hope to be able to make a useful Web app to help other people to learn and practice the memory techniques effectively.


Hello All!

I'm currently enrolled in a full stack web development course and am looking to break into the industry once completed.

I'm about halfway through and have learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, NodeJS, and am now getting into MySQl and Express. This course is centered around the MERN stack, so I'll eventually get into MongoDB and ReactJS, as well.

I've been in IT (Infrastructure) for over 20 years and am excited to break into this part of the industry. Web Development -- coding, in general -- is something that I've been passionate about for years. I'm looking forward to making this my career! 😄
