I'm Yuichi, from Japan living in Montreal, Canada.

I am software engineer at a startup using Node.js with Typescript, some Python, Angular, Docker, and microservice stuff. For my private time, I'm having fun using and learning other stack like Go (Golang), React, Ruby on rails, Blockchain, Machine Learning, etc. I like learning new stuff!

My previous jobs before becoming software engineer were Sales/Marketing rep, Translator, etc. I studied Business/Economics in University.
I have learned coding via YouTube, blogs, codecademy, freecodecamp, and googling around.

I speak Japanese, English, and some French. I love travelling, playing various sports and working out, and cooking!
Nice to meet you all :)

Greg Royan

Awesome! I am always down for a list of articles or books to read. Been reading through Refactoring UI and Sprint: How to Solve Big Problems and Test New Ideas in Just Five Days for UX readings. Any other suggestions?

What sort of projects are you working on?

Thread Thread

Weiwei Hsu • Edited on

I really liked " the best interface is no interface". I think the best way to practice interface design is to make one a day, and try to expand on the interface by making all interfaces for an app/product. For experience design, diagrams are often a good way to map things out. See dubberly.com/articles/using-concep...

I'm working on a series of generators that are web-based. Like upload a photo and change the size of those photos or paragraph generators.

Thread Thread

Greg Royan

I will definitely dig into the recommended readings!

Let me know if you have any questions that are javascript related. Some recommended tools I have used in the past are Egghead.io, any courses by Wes Bos, or if you have specifics stack overflow. But a lot of learning to code is pushing through and practicing. Experiencing errors and reaching out for help when you get stuck! The projects you are working on sound like they will definitely be challenging and should be great for learning some important concepts!

Soy ingeniera en sistemas computacionales y actualmente estoy aprendiendo python, aunque me he dado cuenta que mi lógica de programación no anda muy bien así que también ando dándole duro a eso.

Hi there!

I'm Kacper, currently living in Gdańsk, Poland. Self-thought programmer, graduated in Civil Engineering.

I'm working fully remotely as a full-stack engineer for the UK based startup. On a daily basis, I'm using React, Typescript, Ruby, and Elixir with a bit of Docker.

Recently, I've decided to resume working on my old side project (datamaps.co, github.com/caspg/datamaps.co). I'm planning to keep a dev log which will document my journey. I hope dev.to could be the right place for it.

Hello! I'm a Full Stack JS developer.

I love learning all about this universe so much that it's already my hobby :D

I have experience working with Laravel, NodeJS, React Native, Flutter, Angular, Ionic and other things, but I think my intention in this forum is to learn how other developers write their code, what stack they are using, what is the best architecture. for each project ... I have so many questions and I am sure that there are many developers with more experience here than me and maybe can give me advices about React, ReactNative, NodeJS good practices.
So Thanks a lot!

Greetings,

I'm approaching my 50th birthday far too rapidly and have spent the last couple of decades building Windows desktop/server/database apps for various healthcare related tasks. I've been an IT professional for 30 years now.

Late 2018 I decided to concentrate on developing web apps. Took a few courses (thanks to Colt Steele, Dan Wahlin and Max Schwarzmüller!) on HTML, CSS, Node & Angular.

I really like Angular/Typescript as there's a lot of similarities between that and my Windows dev tool of choice - Delphi - so there was a much shallower learning curve.

Nearing completion of my first project with an Angular front end and a Delphi powered REST API backend & I now feel excited about the future & have lots of ideas for Angular apps.

To find out a little more about me (yawn) I was on the ArrayOfDevelopers web site: arrayofdevelopers.com/2019/06/13/d...

Take care everyone :)

Hello, I'm a backend Software Engineer fall in love of Ruby and Neo4J.
I recently move to Japan (Fukuoka) from France (Nantes) to follow my family, so I started learning Japanese but it's more difficult than Ruby ;).
As a backend dev, I wrote several micro services for the Word Economic Form at Accenture. All of these services was coded in Ruby with the Grape Framework. I implemented some matchmaking service, Geolocation service, Recommendation engine, and many other things.

I'm learning Elixir, JS and Ruby on Rails.

Beside this, I'm a Doctor Who Fan and a Babylon 5 evangelist. I love playing Guitar and Bass and leaning new things (in mathematics, music, cinema, photography, cooking...)

I'm looking for a position in Fukuoka (I can speak English and French and hopefully Japanese soon) or in full remote. I have a preference for a Backend position, but I'm open to new horizon.
