Hi everyone, thanks for letting me join here. I saw this is a good web discussion. I think is the best after I read it for a while.

I'm a beginner front end developer, I just started my career as a dev since mid 2019. I throw away my 8 years experience as an electrical engineer even though I have already become a manager in JABIL CIRCUIT, and start fresh as a dev.

I always loved computer since I was a kid, so I think it's worth it to throw away my previous career and become what I always loved. I hoped I could become a great developer and contributing to other devs like all of you.

Hello. I like your post, and it spoke to me in particular because my original major was Electrical Engineering! I was made to take a class in c++ programming, and it hooked me so much I changed my major to Computer Science. Good post. I look forward to meeting more like minded people on here.

Hi Katie,

Hello there!

I'm Renan, a 28-year old programmer from Brazil. I'm father of two wonderful girls, I'm graduated as a IT Manager (but thankfully I have no intentions on managing anything beyond my code) and I know a bit of this and a bit of that about PHP, SQL and JS.

I'm getting familiar on how stuff works here and someday I might feel confident enough to write something for all of you amazing guys, but for now I'll stick to asking and learning.

Hope to get more in touch with you guys, I feel that I can learn and give a lot here!

(greetings :all)

My name's Jeffrey Desir (written: jffrydsr) and I am, among the hyper-creative, conscientious and scatter-brained members here, not entirely sure what I .do.
eHrM Started real-life with a sprint in Behavioral Psych & Comp Sci (A.I. dreams), and limped the rest of the way to Applied Maths - & now a full-stack web-dev student at Lambda School **(Great but too late 😐).
eHrM I'm proficient in Java, Python, Ruby, BrainF*ck (no, jk. 😐) & HTML/(S)CSS/JS, though I love to code _specifically & primarily in **Clojure
.
EhRm I'm trying to formalize and share my writings in applied mathematics, TSO programming, philosophy/theology, and other pontifications in life.

Overall, I'm learning to connect "my selves" into a functioning unit and with other Selfs to practice collaborating and sharing ideas for my burgeoning freelance career in, you guessed, all of the things.

Fun Fact: I know I can't be alone in this superposition of career focuses with open-source more accessible and profitable than ever before, nor will it be the end of me. Yet, I still hesitate to press submit scared to step into the unknown, but after 4 revisions and this cafe closing; I'm here to grow new connections and wisdom for my life tasks that seems to involve just a little bit of everything.

I noticed you like java, have you tried Kotlin yet?

Collapse
not_jffrydsr profile image
@nobody

I've checked out the documentation and it seems like cleaner Java with some simplified and modern conventions - it seems to be widely supported and hostable which is nice but it almost reminds me too much of Java to not just use what I know, for the moment. :P What do you think of it? The standalone compiler thing is hard to wrap my head around.

Thread Thread
fultonbrowne profile image
Fulton Browne

I personally like using much more than java, I can write the same code in half the time and everything gets automatically integrated with the build process, so you don't have to think about it.

Thread Thread
not_jffrydsr profile image
@nobody

Yeah I think now it's worth getting into maybe in some coding challenges cause you're right, much less boilerplate and smarter class types. after learning Clojure I'm finding less and less utility in "regular" languages these days but it's also about the build flow so meh, everyone should already strive to be a polyglot IMO

Hi, everyone!

I've been lurking on Dev.to for a bit now, and I'm just getting around to finally saying hello. I started learning web development part-time with the Flatiron School in October, and I've been enjoying Ruby and OOP. I can't believe how much I've already learned! If you're an expert or a new learner who happens to be diving into the world of Ruby, let's connect. Learning is more fun with friends, and mentors are welcomed.

As a full-time job, I'm a senior graphic designer at a decently large custom apparel company in Dallas. Prior to that, I was a math teacher and a graduate researcher in philosophy and linguistics. I focussed in a field of philosophy called ontology, specifically in relation to issues in symbolic logic, philosophy of language, and philosophy of literature. If you want to know what that means, shoot me a message or comment below! I love to talk about it! While I enjoyed philosophy and language a TON, I really really enjoy coding. =]

Fun fact: I'm also a CrossFit and USA Weightlifting coach! If you've never tried it, I highly suggest it... CrossFit is intentionally data-driven and definitely resonates well with programmers, engineerings, and doctors... anyone who thinks analytically will enjoy it! I swear! If you've ever tried CrossFit or are really into some other form of fitness (e.g. yoga, F45, pilates, OrangeTheory), comment below. I love to hear about fitness journeys!
