Hello! I'm Celine. I am visiting from beautiful, sunny Santa Barbara, California. I do software engineering for an awesome company called Apeel Sciences. We develop plant-derived technologies that help extend the shelf life of fresh produce.

I just started in the software space, been at it for a couple of years now. I come from a background in data science. I hope to give back to the data science community by recommending good coding practices to make your data science models more reproducible, scalable, and robust.

Thanks for having me! Excited to be here (:

Hello!

We add a little extra "peel" to naturally slow the rate of water loss and oxidation — the primary causes of spoilage, but our product is made out of materials that are found in every bite of fruit we eat.

Software is generally used to help the scientists collect data and run their experiments at a large scale, then be able to visualize their data on a dashboard so that they can make better decisions on how to optimize the formula, etc. We are a small team currently and work mostly as a support function for the organization (:

Thank you for your curiosity! I hope I have answered your questions well.

Not available for general purchase yet, we only apply post-harvest for now. But I will let you know when it is! (:

That’s pretty cool! Predicting for investment portfolios must actually be quite difficult, no? Because they’re so volatile and hard to predict?

[deleted]

Wow that’s cool! What’s your company called again?

Do you also do investments for sustainable companies? Like ESG?

 

Hello. So nice to meet you. I lived in socal for about a 9 years. Hope to pick your brain about some languages hehe.

 

Haha you're welcome to, although I am also new to React and Javascript so not sure that I would be the right person to ask (:

hahaha well well. It is really fun though. Are you currently working in the field yet. We have about ten days left in our bootcamp and hopefully, i'm able to land a job in it.

Yay good luck!! I’m sure you will find one. React is the hot new language (;

I started about a year ago, so I am still fairly new 😎 but loving it so far!

 

That is incredible :3 You are cool

I've been developing for almost a year and I hope to learn a lot with all of you.

 
 
 

Be welcome :)

I'm always excited when people show up with ideas that at some sort will help the planet. I'll be following you to watch the news about this tech!

 
 

Hello,I am param from India, I want to become a data scientist.
Can you suggest me,which programming languages I need to study.

 

Python is the best! You can learn the tensorflow library created by Google. And you can easily follow good coding practices like domain driven design and writing unit tests and acceptance tests.
To manage databases I recommend SQL. PostgreSQL is a great way to learn because it is open source.

 
 
 
 
 

Hey Celine!

Would be curious to know if there are any best practices for testing in data science models? What would that look like?

 

I think writing unit tests for statement coverage and integration tests is the most important thing. You want to make really easy for yourself by writing a testing script that you can just run every time you have a new iteration to your model or the functions you use for preprocessing so that you know you haven’t broken anything and you can trust that your code works.

I’ll start writing some documentation to provide examples and make this concept easier to digest but for now a quick google search might help you (: Hope this helps!

Right on - in your experience, is it something that happens with a lot of data science teams? (The writing of tests, I mean.)

I'm a weird convert towards testing, if it isn't immediately obvious hehe, but I'm always surprised at just how few tests can be found out there sometimes.

No, I don’t see a lot of testing in the data science world (: I agree, I think there could definitely be a lot more of it. It would make writing data models a lot easier to scale, instead of building code and fix models. But I feel like a lot of data scientists aren’t taught how to write good tests and that’s why they’ve been able to survive without it. Are you a data scientist? Where did you learn how to test?

 
 
 

Hi Celine,

the company sounds really interesting!
Best of luck with your work and thanks for helping the data science community!

Best,
Sam B

 

Thank you! Best of luck to you as well (:

 

Thanks for talking. How're things in sunny California?

 

Things are pretty good (: how about for you? Where are you based?

I'm currently residing in the United Arab Emirates. I'm doing okay. My day wasn't good to be honest. Hopefully that isn't the case today.

 

Hiya, I'm currently working in food and hospitality and I'm self studying for 1 year coding, mostly in Android Studio(Java) , but I learned HTML, CSS, SQL, Firebase, Realm, Git. I also have experience with Figma, InVision Studio, Photoshop, Illustrator. I made 4 web pages, 2 full apps (30 small) , 4 UX designs, 10 illustrations(logo, icon) and around 20 edited images. Looking forward for new stuff to learn😊

 
 
 

Wow! You've done a lot. I have a background in hospitality too. Do any of your projects combine the 2 industries?

 

Thank you. Some image editing and logo designs yes but not coding.

 

Thats great!! You area of expertise is astonishing. All the best!!

 
 

did you work on any android apps? I'm also programming with Android Studio Java and Firebase.

 

Cool! Yes, I'm currently working on a Music Player.How about you?

cool, I'm working on a note-taking app with a focus on location-based reminders. supernote.org you got your project on github?

No, I haven't created repository for this project. Sounds a good idea chagai95.

Well, is nothing something to special, it's basically a music player which gets all your audio files from your device and you can sort it and create your own playlist. These projects I'm doing for my portfolio. 🙂

chagai95 how long you been working on your app? is it finished or is under building? 🙂

 

Wow, that’s awesome!! Looking forward to seeing more about your work!

 
 
 

Hello, I am working in the hospitality industry as well and I am studying code. I have just started and I am practizing the basics for now HTML/CSS. I want to learn more and connect with people in this field and this is why I am here.

 
 
 
 
 

Hi, I'm Tom, I've been a professional developer for 4 years and a hobby developer for many years longer than that. I've recently started trying my hand at writing tech articles and this seemed like the perfect space to share my articles. I'm looking forward to being a member of the community!

 

Hi Tom! What programming-language do you work with?

 

Hi! Most of my work is done in an Angular/.Net Stack, what about you?

Ohh sounds interesting. I am currently trying out Go and vue.js. But only for a hobby-project, I'm a student :)

Are you using APS.NET?

I keep meaning to look into both Go and vue, I have had almost no exposure to either of them. And yes I am, both ASP.NET Framework and ASP.NET Core.

Ohh nice. I also want to look into ASP.NET. A fellow student showed me how easy it is to create an API with it and automatically serialize objects to JSON.

 

Hello ladies, my name m... I'm don't like my name and family name, however you can call me 'gavel' or as I'm call myself in the Internet 'igavelyuk', what actually contain my name and family name all together.
So previously I was top Holland Marine Officer but I'm from country what I actually also hate and name of this country is Ukr..., lets call this country Utopia xD.
So after almost 14 years as Marine Officer, I'm starting loose health, I'm not smoke, no drink, no woman, however I'm 35 now with weight 53 kg and cataract on both my eyes (cataract developer LOL or blind developer xD).
Lets deep dive, so in Utopia after 30 y.o. nobody hire you whatever you know, unfortunately I'm living in the village and this is much more tragedy than everything else what you read before, so to not die I'm developing close loop Frontend/Backend/Database/Hosting to able satisfy people needs, because in my country 100$ for web shop it already going expensive so looks like this is my tier for now.
I'm starting developing on Vue and current project similar to this (Plain Html,JS,CSS, Firebase)
burgerpanda.com.ua/
burgerpandabc.com.ua/
sushipandabc.com.ua

Thankfully I'm single, don't have kids and don't have serious projects and don't have job, so this is actually great thing especially if will be end of days, you nothing loose. So for that reason we coding as last day in the life, writing messages in same manner. Just now realize about name of my future company "BlindDev" or "MonkeyCode" so basically if you code something really bad, simply do, like you not guilty it's name of company(like you can't do, s#itty company with s#itty name for this reason s#itty code in the end).

So I'm really glad to be part of community, LIKE if this post make your feel better or improve your mood, I'd like you feel LOL after this.

 

Reading your post didn’t make me feel LOL or better but I like your spirit and how you walk the line between misery and humour. Unfortunately, I can’t help you out but to wish that your eyes don’t grow worse rapidly – which is no help :-( … Of course, I gave you a like :-)

P.S.: BlindDev? Awesome :-D

 

Thanks for the story bro.
Stay strong! God bless you! :-D

 

I am Haseeb, a Computer Science student.I'm in the area for just over two years and I hope here with you to be able to exchange experiences, sharing a little that I know and learning a lot from you.
Thanks for having me! Excited to be here

 

Hi, Maximous Black (17).

I found this platform while looking for a good blogging site that doesn't limit the number of articles to read per month. ahem medium.

Well mainly I'm here to post my software concepts. Any one interested in helping me render them real can hit me up @maximoublk all over the internet

 

Medium limits the number of articles you can read per month?!

What types of concepts/languages do you post about?

 

I don't yet post about anything cuz I don't know how to properly document the concepts and to find an interested group of people. I also don't have time for most of it as I am preparing for my exams right now

P.S. medium allows 3 premium articles per month to a basic user but the thing is they're the best ones so I ended up here and wanted this to be my primary platform for posting stuff I design.

 

Hello! I'm Stella. I am from Denver, Colorado. I'm a Statistician and Data Scientist for IBM Watson Health, Life Sciences division.

I'm hoping to learn more about web development, in addition to keeping up with the latest and greatest developments in open source technologies.

I'm excited to join this community _^

 
 

Hi Stella! I wish you the best of luck in learning more about web development! :)

 

Thanks, Friend! Best of luck on your journey into the coding world! _^

 

Hello, i'm Andrew. I recently (not so recently actually, its been a year) finished my masters studies. I decided i wanted to learn full-stack web development last week to compliment my knowledge base. Then i found this community. I hope to learn a lot more from in here. Cheers

 

Hey everyone,

My name is Patrik Kiss(yes Patrik, not Patrick), I'm newbie web developer from Hungary. I finished a 2 year software developer course a few months ago.

There I've learned the basics of HTML, CSS, JS, Jquery, Jquery-AJAX, responsive design, Bootstrap 4, PHP/OOP/PDO and MySQL.

I've learned Java as well, but I haven't used it ever since the exams, since I hate it, so a "Hello World" is my only knowledge left in it.

Currently I'm using these technologies while working on my own website. Unfortunately I still haven't got a job, since there aren't many companies looking for beginners around where I live.

But I'm not letting this discourage me, I code as much as I can in my free time, constantly learning new things during the time. I code at least 5-6 hours a day, many times 8-10 hours, sometimes even 12. Believe it or not, I don't find it monotonous at all, I really enjoy web development(for now).

Since I'd finished my studies, I've learned a lot, especially organizing my codes and files properly, creating functions that can be reused with just a few changes, etc.

This is a big deal for me, since in my last big project I threw all files in one folder. It looked total garbage not gonna lie. Finding anything there was a nightmare. And let's not talk about the code itself...

I mean, I'm proud of the final result, and I didn't think the code looked bad, in fact, I found it good back then, but with my current knowledge, I realize how bad it actually is.

I've also learned the basic use of htaccess, so my URLs are not ugly anymore(I know it's not a big deal, but it is for me).

I only found this site because Mr.Google recommended me an article from here, and I liked the it from the beginning. I find the design really nice, simple, yet great, not "over designed". I read lots of interesting stuff here.

Also, I'm a weeb, so I like watching anime in my free time, or as a break during programming.
But I'm not a shut-in, I go out quite often, and I do sports regularly, such as running, football and body workout.

Well, this one turned out to be a long introduction, thanks for reading!

 

Hi Patrik!

you've done a great job - you've learned pretty big stack of technologies!
I live in Germany, and many companies are looking for junior developers, may be you could find something for you hier.

 

Szia Patrik, Budapesten élsz? Szeretnék jövőre oda költözni és ahogy olvastam, hogy még nem kaptál állást, kíváncsi vagyok, hogy vajon Budapesten milyen lehetőségem lenne állást kapni. 🙂

 

Hi guys, my name is David and I'm a development enthusiast. I'm in the area for just over two years and I hope here with you to be able to exchange experiences, sharing a little that I know and learning a lot from you =)

 

Hello, I am Adrian and I'm a .Net Software engineer. One of my interests is to connect business with software and i joined the platform to learn and also to share my experience.

 

Hello AdiBorsos 👋. Do you also work for a consulting firm?

 

Hey, yes I am working for a dutch outsourcing company which produces software for their local government, hospitals, fashion, banking.. quite a lot of VMS Companies.

Nice! You code? What does outsourcing mean to you? Idk if its same in US

Yes, I code, that's my first passion and I believe that code should start after understanding the problem you have to solve. This helps you pick the right tech stack and the right people for the job. Our company works with some US partners also, so it's pretty much the same. We are trying to position ourselves as the technical adviceor for companies, enabling them to concentrate on business, while we concentrate on driving the technical solution. They bring a 'problem', we deliver the solution.

Yeah! I love coding taught myself python in college. Friends dad was managing director at large private investment bank. Improved his Bloomberg model (gui not actual code) by 7% over a 14 year period by reducing number of stocks in portfolio. What he wanted more focused returns. Hated having to go to campus to use Bloomberg found quantopian.com but have to use python to build model. So learned python.

Traded my first stock at 14 made $100 USD and was hooked.

The description of your company could be cut and pasted for the one I work for. Great to help others with tech stack or problem. Let them focus on what they excel at and let me/us focus on tech issue.

What is your favorite stack?

But love coding all around not just for financial modeling.

Yea, exactly. I work mostly with the c# .net stack. I am a .net dev at heart. Pretty much anything except silverlight. Also, i poke CI/CD strategies, performance analysis etc.

I focus more on the tech improvement and delivery than on business.

Nice 👍. Yeah i love C# / .Net core.

Pleasure to meet u

 

Hi !
I'm Martial, coming right from Abidjan in Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast if you prefer).
I currently work as a Lead Software Engineer for a company named Chronostec, where i'm in charge (with my team :)) of building web and mobile apps for various purposes.

I love to solve daily life problems and build things that are useful to people around me.

Passionate of reactive UI, i really enjoy working with JS/TS, so naturally i use VueJS/NuxtJS and Angular 2+ (coupled with Bootstrap or Materialize CSS) for building front-ends.

I like to share my knowledge too. I already teach web development in some schools, but i would like to share with the world now. That's what brings me here!

Happy to be a part of the DEV community!

 
 

Hey! This is Jesus from Spain (Granada) living in Girona. I've been reading posts about what i find interesting and in this community there's a lot! I'll try to make some post to go throw #angular, #react, #php and more.

I'm 29 y old and I came here because I have left the comfort area.

Getting into javascript, php, node, frameworks and more! about 1 year studying already.

I'll be happy to help anyone.

Hey! Welcome you too.
Really appreciated.

 

Hi, I am Bill and glad to be here!
My background and experience is not as a developer but I joined a blockchain project about 2 years ago as an HR and Ops guy and have thirsted to learn more and more; learning a little python, a little HTML and CSS, what Agile is about, and now even sketching out an App idea.

I came upon DEV in a blogpost on Stack Overflow. I figured I needed a community to help me grow and maybe I can help someone else along the way too. I am not sure where to go from here, but I am confident it will all become clearer in time.

Onward! Bill

 
 

Hellllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllo

 

Hi everyone,

My name is Angel and a full stack software developer here in Southern California. I write code mostly in AngularJS and Gosu(a Java based scripting language). Our company is currently in the process of migrating our front-end code base from AngularJS to Angular 8 which is one of the main reasons of joining the community!

I heard about this community from the StackOverflow podcast and decided to join to hopefully learn and meet other developers around the world! Thanks everyone : )

 

Hi, I'm Mat, and I'm here to improve my skills and try to help others too (I want to come out of the shadows and not just lurk anymore!).

I work for a company that brings internet connectivity to public transport. It might sound trivial but it's actually really hard to give reliable, super-fast wifi to passengers at 100+ mph! It's not all about passengers either, we do some cool integration work with other systems too!

I manage a team of techies and am always looking for ways to improve either our output or our efficiency. Usually, this involves me automating (in python) or database-ing something. I claim it's to keep my mind fresh so I can converse with the team, but actually I just really enjoy getting into the detail and fixing/improving things!

Thanks for having me :)

I like your description of what dev.to is ("A Facebook for developers"). Didn't really know what to expect from this, but gives me a sense of what it is ;)

 

Hahh.
Facebook for devs seems like a good thing to be part of.
Not sure about the tits...

 

Hello I'm Ibrahim From TGD Dev ™
I'm pretty new here but I'm doing well!

 

Hey! My name is Bastian, currently I am writing my master thesis in computational imaging and hope to finally start working soon, yay!

Besides computer graphics, computer vision and data visualization i worked with web technologies a lot. I am generally interested in anything that has to do with technology, human interaction and interaction between humans and technology. Sometimes i feel like i have to many interests, there is way too much cool stuff around! I like pretty and well made things, data (it never lies!) and cookies. My passion lies in eSports where i have 15+ years of player and management experience in several fields.

Happy to join the dev.to community, have a fantastic day!

 

Hi! I'm Phil. I found this community a few months ago. I find myself referring to the insight that many others so kindly give. And it was cool to get a Hacktoberfest badge!

 

Thank you for the warm welcome. I am a software developer currently working AWS Services such as EKS, Kubernetes etc. I also have the expertise in VLSI and Embedded Systems being an Electronics and Communication Engineer. Earlier before AWS, I had been working on Blockchain technologies like Multichain ans IBM Hyperledger Fabric and Composer. Always keen to learn new things, growing and delivering productively in the process.

 

Hullo! I'm Dustin, new to the Dev community and new to the dev world in general. I just graduated from Prime Digital Academy in Minneapolis, MN and am excited to learn more about development and to find my first job! I am interested in software systems, how they interconnect, and the interactions between the clever people necessary in creating them. I love to talk about JavaScript, logic puzzles, soccer tactics, Thai food, the importance of travel, and cats.

Thank you for all of the helpful articles and tips so far, I look forward to learning more every day!

 

Hello folks! I am Akhil. I am a full stack developer with little over 6years of experience. I am a javascript enthusiast and i love exploring the nuances of vanilla JS.
I have a small github repo where I not-so-frequently pushes my hobby projects.
But I think this is a fantastic platform to learn and share the knowledge I have. More importantly learn from all the masters over here!
I have a small website i made as a portfolio for myself where almost 100% of the code is mine and no libraries are used
Http://akhilarjun.com
Do let me know how you like it.

Also did I mention, am a huge fan of UX and minimalism!

 

Hello, I am Prakash. It's nice to be part of this wonderful Software Engineering Community. I am a Cloud Solution Architect working for Credit Suisse. My interests are Distributed Systems using Service Fabric, Full Stack Web on Blazor.Net, Xamarin App development and Azure DevOps.

 

Hi, I'm Karl. I'm from Seattle and work at Blueprint Technologies, recently shunted into doing Web Development. I attended code bootcamp at CodeFellows and finished this year.

Super new in this industry and look to continue developing my code knowledge, which currently is full stack JavaScript, Angular, along with random smatterings of SQL and Python.

 

Oh and I also studied React and mongoDB when I was in CF.

 

Hello everyone! My name is Nick and I am from Allentown, Pennsylvania. I am a self taught software engineer in my senior year of high school. I currently go to a technical high school in their web design / web programming lab where I focus on software development and learning. I am a remote software engineer intern for a health care company called Family Directed.

My goal is to help other students who are interested in software engineering find ways to learn by themselves and stay self motivated.

Another goal of mine is to spread the Go programming language as much as possible. This language is amazing and I have been using it for a few months. I would highly recommend taking it for a spin!

Anyways, thank you for reading my post and have a great day!
Nick.
