Hi everyone! I'm a self-taught work-in-progress developer and I can't believe I just discovered this place just yesterday! I'm really excited to connect with and learn from like-minded people who are going through some of the same technical challenges that I'm facing on new projects.


It's great to see and I'm also new here so let's learn together


Hi Teena! Let me know if I can help you with something.


I am in the same boat, both technical experience & new to dev.to


Hey Tina, It's great to see and I'm also new here so let's learn together.


Welcome to DEV! I just discovered this place today... kkkkk


Hi! I'm Chy! I'm a Full-Time Full-Stack Software Engineering Student. I'm Studying Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, React, Redux, SQL, Node, HTML, CSS, among other things. I love coding and the DevCommunity and I can't wait til I graduate!!!


Hello ! I Would be blessed to learn something about Software Engineering from you :)


Wow. You are welcome. I am also learning some courses as well


Interested Python Web Developer. I am currently taking online course on Python and my intention is to learn python for web and automation purposes. I have completed the automate the boring stuff and Python crash course books, learning flask by writing simple apps. I trust the journey I began and I hope to get better in python programming.
Any recommendations on the course or books to read after the aforementioned or even mentorship, will be highly appreciated.


Welcome buddy!

Hey those are really good books, congrats for reading them.

There are some good courses on Python for Data Science and Machine Learning in Edx, or Coursera, from MIT, Harvard, IBM and probably some others. I really recommend going through one of those :)


None of it is the boring stuff when you discover how significant it is to the overall learning and growth process. Enjoy the journey is the best advice sometimes. And programming mastery a worthwhile journey! :)


Welcome Nicholas! i use Python for automation and i can tell you that it's one of my favorite languages, keep up the good work!


Thank you. Means alot to get such a motivation.


Hi I'm Francis 👋

I signed up because I've heard really great things about this community! I'm software developer from England but living in the Netherlands. Professionally I write JS, but enjoy all kinds of development. Looking forward to reading and writing some cool stuff here.


Welcome! Excited to see what you write about!


Hi Francis - Welcome!

Yes, I love this community - I think it's great! Any travel tips if I were to visit the Netherlands? It's always been on my list of neat places I'd like to go :)


I live in Rotterdam, which quite a lot of people visiting overlook. It's a really cool place, by far the most modern looking Dutch city - and you can get here in ~35 minutes using readily available public transport.


I'll like to know more about programming as I am an aspiring full stack developer with little knowledge of HTML, CSS and Javascript.


Learn by doing! Join or start an open source project in addition to reading. :)


hacktoberfest was a great way for me to get better with github. I use git at work but finding easier projects to contribute to and learning how to fork, branch, push, and Pull Request was great for me. I would definitely look around for easier open source projects to contribute to.


Cool! Welcome! You should check out FreeCodeCamp ;) really helped me to understand HTML, CSS and responsiveness. Also, they have JavaScript.


YES this. I reset my progress on freeCodeCamp recently and just got through all of HTML and CSS again. It's mostly review but it's a great place to interactively learn and the projects are challenging!


Keep at it! Do personal projects! And never stop learning! That's what helped get me into graduate school. Keep up the progress!


Welcome, reading and writing is the best way to learn


Hi... my name is Diego and I am a web developer. (Support group: 'Welcome Diego!').

I got here digging into smoking weed, coding and keeping a dosed schedule.

As a Dev, I am a Full Stack Web Developer currently cruising data science waters with python.

Nice to meet you all!


Hi Diego! What type of data science are you most interested in?


Hello Chris! I've been looking into starting off working with financial data. To get myself comfortable with data science, I enlisted in the Data Science Path from CodeAcademy. After finishing that, I wanted to look into analyzing and visualizing financial data with python. Both artificial intelligence and machine learning interest, I will see where it takes me.w

Very neat! I hadn't seen the CodeAcademy Data Science path before - I'll have to take a look, thanks!


Hello everyone. I'm relatively new here. I have read a few posts but have never created any myself. There's a lot I want to write about but sometimes, I just don't think my post will be helping anyone as I'm not as experienced as most of the people I see here. I hope to become skilled enough so as to boost my confidence to cause a change in my community through blog posts and videos.
I am a full-Stack JS Dev with experience working with the PREN stack, I also recently started a course (python FLASK) on Udacity (fullstack Nanodegree program) and I should be graduating in about a month.
Once again, I'm glad to be here.


Hi all! I'm a Data Scientist working for the Office for National Statistics in the UK although I'm in the middle of transferring to a different company. Main interest is in how we communicate Data Science to others in organisations in a way that helps them understand its business implications.


That's an awesome focus! I've personally found that many new data scientists underestimate the importance and difficulty of getting stakeholder by-in.


Thanks! Yes completely agree, there’s a real gap in explaining the “why” and not just the “how”.


I come learning to code I just finished learning HTML and I came here because Google showed me some articles on web development developers not letting me here so why not sign up thanks Google keeps sending me and sign up here I hope to continue in my journey to learn different languages and such so that is why I took the step.


Hello dev.to community! My name is Sam and I am currently a full-stack student. I want to engulf myself in the dev community to better understand everything and how to write better code. I look forward to engaging with people that have experience and knowledge.


Hello everyone!

I'm a Full-Stack Web Developer. I woke up this morning feeling like starting my own blog 😄and luckily I stumble upon this great community. I like keeping myself up-to-date with latest trends and technologies for web development. I would like to share some of my knowledge/experience from the things I've learned so far as a developer, so if you have any tips/tricks on how to create a nice post please send them my way.

Have a great week everyone!


Hi ╰(°▽°)╯
Signed up as I'm looking for a home to do some tech blogging.
My interests are testing and security! I work across a lot of technologies and languages: java, docker, unix, currently learning python and looking after my first pwnagotchi.


Hi! and welcome to DEV :) Love the ╰(°▽°)╯


I am so disappointed in myself? Where have I been all this long?... That aside I am so glad to be here. I am a tech enthusiast with lots of passion. I am here to learn and help someone learn from me (woo...w).
I am currently perfecting my skills to becoming a fullstack developer in Ruby and Javascript. I will be glad to learn lots from all of you.


Hello world! I'm a French engineering student who can't believe he just discovered this great community! I'm interested and eager to learn more about the JAMstack, game dev, IT security, blogging and many other things.
See you!


Welcome! I just discovered this great community myself! Let's learn more stuff!


Hey Dev.to 👋

Super excited to be here. I love the concept here and though this would be a great place to learn new ideas and share what I do.

I am the technical co-founder of asknicely.com , I started building the site in my bedroom 5 years ago, now it's turned into a company with offices in Portland USA, Auckland NZ and now Amsterdam!

I spend most my time trying to keep complexity out of our product! Anyone can make the product more complex but it takes some real effort to keep it simple.

Looking forward to sharing some code and fun solutions to some interesting problems we had.

Cheers, John


Heyo! I'm Drew from Denver, CO. I make games in JavaScript and am currently learning the Godot engine, which is like Python, for my next big project. Stoked to be here!


Welcome to DEV Drew! What type of games do you like to make? I've always been interested in making games in JS, but haven't found a great game engine I like... any tips there?


Hey Chris!

I had been working on a retro-style RPG in my free time for a few years, similar to Earthbound, Pokemon, Super Mario RPG, etc. It came out on Steam earlier this year: store.steampowered.com/app/1064690...

We (a friend and I) used Create React App and wrapped the final output with Electron. It's nothing fancy - mostly simple divs and sprite sheets moving around on screen. It was simple enough to not need a physics engine or anything like that.

I haven't used it, but I know people love Phaser as a JS game engine:

Oh, that's awesome! I actually think I saw a talk, or podcast or something about your game (I definitely remember the graphics and that you built it with just React - but can't remember where I heard about it); that's really neat :)

Ah yeah, found it - it was syntax with Wes Bos :)



Hey folks ! Glad to be a part of Dev as a small independent dev ! Looking interesting to know facts shared in the forum. Recently started as a software developer intern in a silicon valley technology company ! Not yet out of college ! Joining the community to grow with you all. Cheers !


Hi everyone! I'm a self-taught work-in-progress developer and I can't believe I just discovered this place just today! I'm really excited to connect with and learn from like-minded people who are going through some of the same technical challenges.


Welcome to DEV! It's a great place to hang out with other devs :)


Hi, I am a teenager but I really love to be a programmer and now that I'm here I guess this is where everything begins to make sense for me. I'm self taught in HTML and CSS but I wanna learn JavaScript and Python but don't know a suitable material for beginners. I really glad to be part of the experienced and innovative minds here.


Hello guys, I just released today GitHub Compare and had already a few requests on how I built that custom select with input and dropdown in React. So I decided to finally sign up in DEV and write my first dev tutorial! Wish me luck :D


Hiiii - I'm a lovable open source kitty! 👻

In all seriousness, though, I care a lot about OSS and have spent the last year focused on trying to make it easier to OSS devs to earn sustainable funding from our projects.

I'm excited to be working on Saasify, a platform that makes it really easy to create monetized FaaS APIs from open source projects. All you have to do to get started is wrap your code in a serverless function, and we handle all the billing, accounts, frontend marketing site, docs, and support for you.

If you have a project you might want to saasify and start monetizing, I'd love to hear from you!

Looking forward to meeting & collaborating with some of you wonderful dev.to folks. 😀


Good day! my name is Gift Austin, I'm a self-taught programmer and gamer, I'm a student at a college and I just found out about dev just yesterday and I'm really excited to meet y'all and hope to learn a lot.



My name is Boss. I am a functional programming geek, loves learning about Maths and seeking for the beauty of the hidden patterns in things, be it code, business domain or human behaviors. Recently, I'm involving in infrastructure work a lot.

I'm also interested machine learning, data engineering and lots of other things. So maybe I'm just simple curious guy here :P

I have been reading many posts from here for awhile. I'm excited to be part of the community!

I know lots of Python and Devops stuff (mostly devops in the cloud, but I'm an old Linux wizard, if anyone needs Linux help). I'm joining here to post some of my learning and learn from the community.


Hello, I am Utibe-Abasi Emmanuel. I am a fullstack developer with so much to learn. I got to know about this platform through a blog post on micro interactions.

I am here to learn, interact and share with everyone. I would love to make new friends and work on projects with others here.

It is really great to be here.


Hi folks, i am versed in software testing and recently one of my friend connected me to this platform which sounds wonderful for knowledge sharing through blogs content and make technical connections as well.


Hi all! I'm a full-time software engineer writing full stack (mostly spring/java). In my downtime I love working on my side projects like flowist.io. Have been writing about the journey on Indiehackers, but now want to get into blogging and sharing my learning with others!
