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 (:



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?


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.


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.


Hi Celine,

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

Sam B


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


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?


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!


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😊


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. 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! 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.


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)

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


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! _^


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.


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. 🙂


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


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 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 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 =)




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


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 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!


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


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


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 :)


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


Hi, I'm Paul, an old dog developer trying to learn new tricks. I come from the Microsoft world with over 25 years experience. My focus has been on SQL Server, and the .NET stack. During my tenure as a developer, I never quenched my thirst for learning. I’ve recently become interested in four newer areas of .NET. They are: Azure, .NET Core 3.x, security, and APIs.

In my remaining spare time (and believe me, it’s SPARE), you’ll find me out in the neighborhood training for my next 10K.


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 community, have a fantastic day!


Hi everyone!

I’m Sarah (they/them), a multidisciplinary developer and designer based in Norway but originally from Belgium.

I do full-stack dev, but am specialized front-end and data visualizations, in addition to user experience design and research. Also have experience with project and product management.

I’m very interested in data science and AI/ML and am trying to move more into that direction, especially interested in combining it with ethics and social sciences.

Currently remaking my portfolio and having a goal for 2020 to start writing and be more involved in both the tech and queer community, and have some interesting personal projects planned as well. Excited to start sharing things here as well :)


Hello! My name is Jon. I'm currently a backend developer for CB Insights, in New York City. I primarily work in Go and (some) Python to help build our market intelligence platform.

I started out working life as a business grad and decided it wasn't for me, and made the switch to programming soon after. I'm now approaching 5 years of programming work, and I've enjoyed every minute of it!

Still figuring out my niche and "programming brand", but I've had a lot of fun taking projects from concepts and plans into fully functioning systems and features that align with business objectives. I'm really into building excellent user experiences, thinking through architectural decisions, and building lots of tests that bolster those user experiences.

In my spare time, I enjoy thinking about how to improve my programming skills in an accelerated way, and coming up with fun little app ideas and games.

Excited to be here!


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!


Hello Group Members,
It is so cool to see that this group exists.

I am Kenneth Fax ( I have working science, systems, engineering, quality assurance and technical project management. These days, I have been working on different, full stack, javascript, messaging platforms and mentoring groups for developers.

I like to invite developers to team up for fun, events, recognition and consider working together for noteworthy or paid projects. So far, great support from Samsung, IBM - to name a few.

I would like to invite more developers in or as passing through San Francisco. I don't want to be spammy, so just DM if you want an invite.


Hello, I'm Vince!
I graduated from a 24 week part-time full stack coding boot camp in July. I am looking for my first developer position. I learned HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Node.js, React, Express, and MySQL.
I look forward to solving real business problem regardless of how big or small.
💻 👀


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
Do let me know how you like it.

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


hi, I am Diogenes from Dominican Republic, I am Developer and work with DotNet, MVC and know all about microsoft tecnologies. So, I like this community and I feel at home.



I wrote my first code in 1977, in assembly, for a Z-80. These days I am slightly more modern, using Ruby, Javascript and some sort of Intel chip that goes much faster. I enjoy seeing how the more things change, the more they stay the same. Today's hottest code snippets are not actually all that different from code snippets written decades ago. Without history, without knowing the past, developers seem keen to repeat the errors of the past, but I am hopeful one day soon, that will change! In the meantime, I am learning from a lot of developers at this site, which is refreshing and maybe I can contribute to others with my experience.


Hello everyone
I am Yash from India.
Looking forward to learn and grow from this community and contribute as well.
I am currently an undergraduate doing majors in Computer Science, want to pursue my career as a Business Analyst and developer.

I want help from this community to grow and learn from my mistakes.

Hope, i get a lot of help.


Hi! I'm Alicia. A disabled computer engineer in a motorized wheelchair based in Spain. A former self-taught game developer who was mostly focused on programming indie games with C# & Unity (also made some gigs doing pixel art and some game designer documents).

This year I pivoted from gamedev to webdev, looking for remote-friendly opportunities and a stable income at the same time. In the beginning, I tried FreeCodeCamp and obtained the Responsive Web Design certificate, but around summer I obtained a scholarship for a full front end master learning InVision, Git, Flexbox, SASS, CSS Grid, Webpack, JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Angular... and many more!

As for hobbies, I'm an indie gamer enthusiast, roleplayer (D&D!), reading manga and some other geek stuff 🤓

I've been registered in a while but until now I didn't feel confident enough to be part of the community. Maybe shortly, I'll even dare myself to write some small articles here!

TL;DR: Thanks for being an awesome community and having me!

Have a good day :D

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!



This is Dinesh from India. I am a JS developer. Though I can still call myself a beginner. I adopted jQuery instead of JS earlier and I am kinda learning it from the beginning. I am reading speaking JS right now and joining communities to learn more about everything that I take in. In terms of good coding practices, coding ethics.

I am currently working as a UI/UX Developer. I will love to work on some projects that enhance my knowledge and skill of JS.


Hello. I'm Omar and I currently reside in the United Arab Emirates. I've been coding for a year now and my background is in design more specifically in photoshop and website mockups like lunacy and Figma.

Hi, my name is Gil. I started my dev career in Java, but fell in love in Ruby couple of years ago after I started digging into it. I just came back from RubyConf and that's where I learned about



I'm Sam, a backend engineer working in London as a Python developer.

I work for a company which helps retailers create marketing experiences their customers will love. The system is pretty challenging and I try to learn a lot here!

I'm interested in distributed systems, Python, Go, AWS among a lot of other things.

Outside of works I'm quite outdoorsy, I love hiking and camping. I'm also actively reading up about how to do remote work well, as next year I'll move to a more rural area to be able to more outdoor activities, and I'll work remotely for the same company - it's going to be a challenge!

Best wishes to all,
Sam B


Good luck with your remote work! Let me know how it goes. I’ve always wanted to be a digital nomad but I’m not sure how difficult it is to find a job on the road (:

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!


Hello everyone! I'm Anirudh. I come from Bangalore, India. I am in the process of improving my programming skills to land my first developer role.

It feels great to connect with the developer community and share ideas, and get better! Excited to be here!


Hello! I'm a computer engineer, and I do software engineering. I love to design software solutions from enterprise scale, all the way to software that runs on resource constrained micro-controllers and sensors.

Excited to be here, and can't wait to share and learn from you!


Hey! I'm Mark from the Philippines. Currently learning React in codewithmosh. I'm planning to work again as a Virtual Assistant to support myself while taking online education.

For all the years, I finally found something I love doing which is coding. My main goal is to work as a front-end web developer remotely. I hope I can contribute to this community as well.

Nice meeting you all...


Hi Mark! It seems like you are quite interested in developing your technical skills for your career, which is amazing!

Similiar to, you also have the Angat Community, where Filipino developers come to be mentored, share programming knowledge and build their careers with global start-ups.

I blame Erik Dietrich for my being here. One of his posts linked here and so far, at this point-in-time, he was right.

"It’s a refreshingly positive oasis in the large sea of angry Reddit commenters and “well actually” connoisseurs that is the broader software world."

Seems like the kind of place we'd like to take care of..


Hi, my Name is Qasim Nadeem. And I am a Web Application Developer. I mostly work on eCommerce solutions. I am working as senior software engineer, want to enter in the open source world of code. No matter whatever I learn, I always feel, that some thing is missing. So I am here to learn new things and share my knowledge with others.


Hey! I am Saujan. An electro-mechanical student turned Software Architect for past 6 years, self-taught like most out here. I am currently in the city of Eindhoven, The Netherlands and building a career with VTEC Lasers and Sensors.

I love working on IoT and full-stack, however my background allows me to stay on all phases of a product lifecycle, inception to RMA. And the little experience I have also puts me in the role of a project leader and mentor.

Currently I am occupied with solutions on health sector for gas and dust sensing. I think the work we do is very important for this time, and are slowly progressing to measure, present and distribute data reliably. We are relatively a new company in IoT so long way to go, and pretty quiet one with not much social presence.

Thank you for having me here, I am hoping to be able to write articles and maybe help the community out there and myself.

I'm a lifelong technologist and excited to be working with a great team of Devs building the world's most user friendly cloud.

@uffizzicloud we are building something that we would actually want to use - a public cloud platform that is built around you, your workflow, and your experience.

Thanks for having me!


Hi everyone! I'm a software engineer based out of Dallas, Texas.

I noticed that I have been clicking through a lot of articles in my twitter feed and reading threads on the #devdiscuss hashtag, so I thought I would come check it out. I have been blogging as a hobby and trying to write on a regular basis to exercise that muscle.

I am going to try cross-posting a recent article to -- with canonical url set. As I understand it, that is totally ok these days which is news to me!

It is always a challenge to keep up with everything when you are a technologist, but I would rather have it that way than to be doing the same thing over and over.

I am looking forward to learning more about this community.

Hello! I'm Nathan. I hail from San Francisco, California. I am currently a Product Manager at a startup, where I am focused on building a development tool for games.

I grew up programming and designing my own games. I have participated in multiple LD comps, and spent a lot of time with Unity/Unreal. Although an engineer at heart, I found myself attracted to leadership and problem discovery which landed me in Product Management. I just signed up to, but have been a lurker for a few months. I hope to spend my time here giving back to the community of people just starting out in game development, and potentially guide others in finding their calling if they decide the path of code is not the only thing that gets them out of bed in the morning.

Hello I'm Lawrance. I am from India. Currently I am Pursuing 2nd year of Computer Science and Engineering. I Love Coding. But usually I used to end up in Learning Whatever I see even though it is not Important due to Improper Guidance. I hope this place will help me to find the right path for My Journey into CS.


Howdy! I am Josh. I am a software engineer at Two Sigma in the day, and I like building things with 3D printing and/or arduino in my spare time.
I heard about this site from the stackoverflow podcast, as I'm sure many others did recently.


Hi everyone! I'm new to programming but I'm here to learn and take on challenges hoping to get the guidance from more experienced users.
I am a technical analyst but nowadays every one have to be able to code if we want to keep in this industry, so I am catching up and excited to be part of this group


Hi everybody....A big Hello to all the talented developers here!!! This is Anusrita.I m not new to Tech World.But am planning to start off to learn serious coding now, any help/suggestion is welcome. At this point I am really confused, where and what to start off with. Everything looks so vast from where I stand right now. Thanks for any kind of help in advance! I am really excited to be here 😊

PS: I want to become a good front end developer and build responsive websites...

I have built websites using HTML and CSS... but when it comes to coding( like the main logic part), my brain shuts down.


Hello! I'm a software engineer at Quartz (a digital news company). I'm a career-changer - came from Journalism and have been in CS full-time for a little over a year. :) Very into GraphQL at the moment and am loving the dev community.


Hi! I am a coder at an education company. I like Angular, JS/CSS/HTML, TypeScript, learning new things, and long walks on the beach in the mountains. I live near Denver and spend my free time mostly being with my family and working on projects in my community.


Hi, I'm Paul, an old dog developer trying to learn new tricks. I come from the Microsoft world with over 25 years experience. My focus has been on SQL Server, and the .NET Framework. During my tenure as a developer, I never quenched my thirst for learning. I’ve recently become interested in various JavaScript frameworks, i.e. ME[A/R/V]N, and the latest .Net/cloud bits, including Azure, .NET Core 3.x, security, and APIs.

In my remaining spare time (and believe me, it’s SPARE), you’ll find me out in the wild, training for my next 10K.

I'm thrilled to be here and look forward to interacting w/ you all.


Hi all, this looks like a great place to learn about programming :) in university I studied c++ but never really got caught by coding. In the last year I started a new job as tech support analyst and had more "free" time so I started working with Web development to create tools that can help with our daily productivity. Nowadays I code everytime I can trying to improve my code and create new tools. I use html, java script with jquery, css, php and sql. I'm looking forward to learn a proper java script framework, improve my knowledge and share if I can. Thank you for letting me join

Hey guys!

I'm Chris and I'm Brazilian

Currently I'm graduating in Information Security, but I got interested in IT because of programming, especially Python.

I've saw some really cool stuff from in my google feed so I decided to check out. Glad that "the algorithm" has choose me lol

I enjoy reading articles and learning from others, and a while back I decided to write about InfoSec, Computer Networks and Python on my personal Medium account but all in portuguese, maybe I'll give it a try and write something in english.

As you guys may have noticed I'm interested in Linux, Python, Cybersecurity, Programming, SysAdmin, Shellscripting, Rust and I have some friends that don't stop talking about Dart/Flutter so I also ended up getting interested in it.

Let's connect on LinkedIn if you guys want

Thanks a lot!


Hi all. I'm Andy from the UK, now living in Bangkok. I'm more of a coding enthusiast than a developer. I've been playing around with python for about 5 years. I've also been trying to learn various front end things off and on for about the same amount of time.

After a few years of running we sites on WordPress, I'm really getting into static site generators now. I really love Hugo and Gatsby.

I found after doing a search for something static site related and I've been hanging around for a few weeks already. I really love it. It's such a great place to learn new things. Just learned there's a welcome page, so I'm popping my head up now and introducing myself. Pleased to meet you all here.


Hello everyone! I am a software developer starting out right out of college. I found out about this place from a book I am reading on your first year in tech! I'm a native New Yorker. Very glad to have found this community!


Hey everyone, i'm Alex and i work as a DevOps/Backend developer at a marketing company. Just recently discovered the beautiful world of DDD. Currently learning event sourcing and CQRS principles.

Really looking forward to interacting with this community!



Hello, All I am Abhishek- Full-Stack Developer and you can call me abjo. You can google me by pixelbyaj too. I am from INDIA and eagerly learning microservices architecture using docker and kubernetes.


Hi! I'm definitely an edge case here: started coding as a hobby in my early 40's, got an AA when Java was at like version 1.2, actually landed a gig at a software company in my hometown if Pittsburgh, moved to LA to persue my first passion, music...and now I'm 63, semi-retired BUT...determined to become competent in developing web/mobile apps for the satisfaction of doing it. And at 63, it's unfortunately true that it takes twice as long to internalize new information as it did in my 20's & 30's! So I have to really bear down. And I'm enjoying the challenge. Nice to be here!


Hi! This is Hammad, a JavaScript Enthusiast based in Karachi, Pakistan. The purpose to join this community to learn from some cool developers out here and also help other people with my articles, which will be mostly about React!

I am excited to be here :)


I have been lurking around for quite a while, but after I was baited by this article on DigitalOcean, I finally pulled the trigger and invited myself here.

I'm Tob, a software engineer at Sertis. Our work as developers here is mostly making bridges (interfaces, applications, etc.) to connect our customers to whatever our in-house AI researchers, data scientists, and data analysts produce to satisfy their needs.

I spend my time mostly working with JavaScript, as our primary tech stack is JS-focused (Node and React/Redux), but that doesn't limit me from implementing stuff in different languages like Python and Elixir. The list will eventually expand I hope.

Outside of work I mostly dedicate my time to rhythm games, primarily Japanese and mobile. Somehow I ended up developing a tool that help a community I belong to manage a certain kind of event easier, basically automating a lot of tasks so that they can focused on moderating the event. It seems that as a dev, you are bound to create something to solve someone's problem, which is really nice.

Since this place seems so nice, I think it would be great to let my voice out and participate in discussions more. Hope to have some talk with no breaks here!


Hi! My name is Max! I'm a senior at a big high school in Texas, and I'm one of twenty kids in my CSIII class! I love software and website design and I can't wait to learn more! So far, I have experience in Swift, and a fair bit in Python, C++, HTML, and CSS!


Hello. My name is Nabeel and I'm a student in computer engineering. Python Django and Kotlin Android is what I'm learning about cause I find it interesting. As for what brought me here, Stackoverflow Podcast


I joined the community for answers and information on what to do for a new project. Mostly because I have been trying to help out with open source resources and tools to bring awareness to everyone who needs tech assistance but not have the means to. Very new to the community I ask for patience and understanding. Oh and I can't hide my excitement.
Reason I am here today is because I was a little bit of a gamer and after almost a year of building it up 6 castles and around thousand plus dollars.. One day just didn't have access or the system told me I didn't exist so I was mad. I Wanted to understand where I went wrong or why was I so acceptable to become hacked or "jacked" so here I am.


Hello there wonderful people. This is all new to me and at times extremely daunting as I am a self-learner. I seek to make a complete pivot to a developer from a government Contractor. I apologise in advance if my questions are too "newby." I am excited to gain a new skillset.
