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 :)


Welcome Yuichi, nice to have you here. 😉


Hey I have DBA friend in Canada, but in Vancouver... hehe


Welcome, Yuichi. Nice to meet you too!


Can't wait to hear more about your blockchain work


Welcome to our great tech community!


Me too trying to switch.
Your story is inspirational.


Welcome everybody on Dev.to! I'm a french dev oriented Web, I created most bots on Discord and I updating all my projects.

I learn Ruby and Javascript, i started learn Gatsby last week!


Hi thomas i m new to dev.to and i m learning javascript.


Hi Anis i'm also new to dev.to and i'm equally learning JavaScript


🌿Hello, my name is Weiwei and I'm a newbie coder building a product a month with Javascript and no code tools!

I studied interaction design in college and realized that it's so much more fun if I can build out the design ideas that I have.


Welcome, Weiwei! Awesome idea! I am working on the same things, I started as a developer and am working on learning about interaction design and user experience!


Cool! I'm down to trade skills if you are open to it!

Otherwise, good luck! :)

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?

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.

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!

Awesome. Thank you for your recommendations. :)


I'm an economist that does and teaches data analysis. I use mainly D, R, and Bash, with some Ruby, Perl and a few others mixed in as needed. I started programming in the 1980s on computers with 1K and 2K of RAM. At last count, I've used over 50 languages, and am a strong believer in functional programming.


Hello, I would love to learn a bit from you. Following :)


Hey all! I'm a full stack developer with over 8 years experience in consulting and working with SaaS based companies.

I work actively with Golang, AWS, GCP, and Typescript and absolutely love my work 😊.

Currently, I'm doing a bit of soul-searching to find a new project to build and profit from.


Hi Stephen! What sort of projects are you looking for? Any top driving interests that you'd like to find a foot hold in?


Preferably SaaS type offerings. I like working with products that help other developers do better at what they already do.

Ah, cool. Feel free to reach out if you're interested in marketplaces, privacy, and data ownership. I'm working on a data marketplace and data collection app that will be a Progressive Web App SaaS offering.


Welcome, Stephen! Let us know when your new project finds you!


Thank you!! I think the inspiration bug has hit me a few times this week 😛


Welcome, Stephen! Keep looking for that next project. It is always out there. Fill a need!



I'm been a web developer for ~12 years now and have been working full-time for 3 years now on my Open Source project Gatsby!

Love open source & web development & company building.


Welcome, I'll have a deeper look at your project, from the first sight it seems interesting!


Welcome folks!

After you introduce yourself here, feel free to drop a comment in this other discussion thread I just created:

Great to have you in the community.


Welcome to DEV! I'm attempting to learn Rust and Web Assembly, but have not quite made an effort yet... Also, I've been learning what it's like to build websites for your family. Not super fun, but it's probably a good introduction to building things for others.


I only joined so I could comment on this post:
but hey
I guess I'm here now so...

Who are the best women to follow in this community (in your opinion)? Not trying to get into a battle of the sexes but I've only ever worked with men and damn is it nice to read what my demographic is writing.


hola me gusta mucho esta comunidad y me uní por que me encanta estar conectada con gente que le apasiona lo mismo que a mi, la programación. 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. Muchas gracias por aceptarme


Hola Nora, bienvenida. Contento de saber que también hay participación de habla hispana en dev.to


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!


Hello, community! I'm software engineer and researcher from Belarus.
I'm working in robotics and automation field. I love what I'm doing and my aim is to make robots more accessible and friendlier for people. I develop core libraries and
algorithms along with end-user applications.
My stack includes:
Python for high level applications, machine learning and research.
Java for robot's kernel.
C to interact with hardware.


Hi guys! I'm Hendrik, I don't code, I write concepts. So I'm interested in various meta-topics rather than concrete programmers work. (But at least I manage to maintain my personal website on self-hosted WP basis…)
Any recommendations for followings?


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.


Hi all! 👋 I'm Flor from Argentina. I've been working as an Applications Support Analyst my whole professional career and I started to learn to code a few months ago as I'm willing to change my career path. I'm also interested in UX and UI design. Nice to meet you all 😊


I am a newbie learning C# at university and everything else by myself. I must say that I am pretty lost. I have learned bit of HTML, JS, CSS because I wanted to make beautiful webapps and website, turned out I sucked big time in design. Now I am learning Java to start developing for Android and I hope to find a fried who has better eyes than I do :').


Hello everyone! I am a programmer from Canada. I primarily use NodeJS, Python, and C++/C# for development, and I sometimes dabble in game development.

(function() {
  console.log('Hello, DEV.to!')

Have a great day and thanks for reading my Welcome Thread post. <3


I'm Marvin,a newbie. I've been reading a couple of articles from dev.to and I've fallen for it. I do python scripting,a little of bash and I've gotten my way around some python for Data analysis. I'm excited to be here and look forward to interacting with these ever interesting minds as the posts I've read have proven. This is going to be cool.


Hey y'all! Cheers from Texas! 👋 I'm a student at Launch School studying to be a Software Engineer. Right now I'm learning Ruby, then we'll move on to back-end development things and then to HTML/CSS, etc. I want to learn as much as I can outside of that too! The dev community has been lovely so far so I'm glad to be here 😁


I'm BlueFox, from Brazil living in Montreal, Canada.

I am a software engineer at Bombardier with Java, Scala, some Python, Angular, React, Docker, and microservice stuff. I'm having fun learning other stuff like Blockchain, Machine Learning, etc.

I speak Portuguese, English, French, Spanish and some Italian. I love work out, and cook Brazilian bbq!

Nice to meet you all :)



I'm cath, a backend developer using PHP/ Laravel from Philippines. I have also started learning Python and Javascript just recently. Hope to learn something here and share as well. Nice to meet you all.


Been a paid member of medium for a while, been wanting to leave, and one tweet made that possible.

I want to contribute my knowledge to the development community and definitely learn as well. Please follow me.


Hi, dev from Brazil trying to make some open source and music things but struggling to have the time and resources to do it.


Welcome! What would you say is primarily taking up the time you’d want to be using to create?


Hi Ben, I'm really liking this platform and kind of surprised that you personally answer a lot of this welcome posts. Congratulations to your team for all the great work!

To answer your question, my comute is like 1h20min, so that's 2h40min a day (this is kind of common in Rio de Janeiro and other Brazillian big cities). Also in some weekends I go to another city to visit my parents.

Ah yeah, that’s tough. Perhaps in the long run you might be able to transition to remote to cut out the commute. I know that that has returned a lot of time and energy to me.


Hi all! My name is Jay, I'm a developer from London focusing mainly on front-end. I've been in the game for 13 years now (gosh I'm old) and have decided to join dev.to to write, learn and generally participate more in the tech community.

I've migrated my first (and only, so far!) blog post from Medium, and I'll be writing up my second soon - how I work with Google Optimize to A/B test non-trivial changes in my Angular applications!

Great to be here :)


Hi 👋, im a frontend developer from germany (cologne).

Most of the time i work with javascript (a lot) (React, React-Native). I also do some occasional backend stuff (Rails, PHP). We build a lot of Administration tools and mobile Apps for our customers.

In my spare time i love to discover and learn new languages/technologies like Swift, Elixr, ReasonML or fiddle around with my workflow/setup (vim (we are in an on/off relationship 😄), atom, terminal, ...). So im always on the lookout for interesting blog posts/videos or repos.

When im not coding for work or on some of my many (of course never finished) side projects 😄, i like to golf, run and mountainbike.

Nice to meet you all 👋
(I'm always happy if i can help others, so feel free to ask.)


Hello! Great to meet you! Wow, may I know how do you manage to pick up so many languages? As I'm new, and I was quite comfortable with HTML, CSS and Javascript, but then when I pick up React because I wanted to use GatsbyJS for a project, I feel like what I've learned in JavaScript was like a fragment of what's needed.


Hi! Nice to meet you too!

Javascript is like 90% of what i do all day. So the other languages i "learned" over time with sideprojects or for smaller projects at work where i could experiment a little bit. (Though im not nearly as comftable with Swift, Rails, PHP or ReasonML as i am with JS ofc)

It gets easier over time to pick up new languages, especially when they are similar to your "main" coding language.
But there are also languages that i just cannot really get the grasp of, like ObjectiveC. (tried so many times 😄).

React just takes a little bit to get used to and understand how to "think" in react components, but once you get it, its so much fun!
Have fun with React! (and Gatsby ofc)


Hi! I'm Soren, or Sore Bear. I am a University Residence Life professional, turned HR Professional, turned Developer. I've been working professionally as a developer for about two years now. My day job is full stack development work with Drupal. I primarily build custom themes and modules for large scale Civic sites. I've also done several freelance projects with React and Gatsby. My current side/personal projects have been diving into Dart and Flutter.


Hi all! My name is Taylor Crumpton. I work in the great city of Austin, TX for a small cybersecurity start-up. I majored in Data analysis but I was hired to learn front-end development using Lua and SQL. I am currently learning node.js and some machine learning, but I am eager to grow my python skill set. I didn't think I would ever become a developer, but its what my job called for, and I certainly love teaching myself new things. A more seasoned coworker (one of our backend guys) told me to check out dev.to and it is so exciting to join this community!


Hello! I am a learner of programming, I wanted to join a community of people who are passionate by tech, this is my first time joining a community dedicated to something in specific, I have read before some articles in DEV however never got the chance to join till today, hope to learn a lot and keep up the good vibes!


This is late - but nice to meet you Daniel! How are you finding the community after a few months here?



I am a developer looking to help others get into coding! I love teaching and development and I am trying to combine those two loves into a life long endeavour. I am really fascinated with the advancement in front-end engineering lately especially with React and RxJS.

I came here to try and connect more with people! I also adore those who can write, so I also want to practice my writing and storytelling!

Nice to meet you all!
