Hey. My name is Claire. I am 39 and a Python novice. Currently studying to become a full stack developer. I've been reading Dev for a while and thought it was about time I joined. I am looking to learn all I can to progress my journey. My new path. I love everything tech and value any advice or knowledge from experts or novices alike.
Hi Claire, I'm 38 and started studying front-end technologies few months ago.
I wish you good luck!
Hi Mazarzycki, I am 36 with grit to pick up some mastery around python, nodejs & php
Best of luck to you too Mazarzycki :)
Wow, you guys are inspiring. Hope you achieve your goals. All the best.
Kudos to both of you for taking on a career and path change. Can be scary, but will be exciting to learn so much
Hi Peter, thanks. It's been almost 10 months since the day I started and every day I like it more. It may sound weird to you but I feel comfortable being uncomfortable and learning programming gives me this opportunity so it feels like a perfect match :)
Hi Claire, I'm Katie, and I'm not saying how old I am 😊.
It's great to see more woman who code here on DEV.
Welcome to our community, and I look forward to seeing your contributions.
Developer has no sex, I’ve met a lot of women who code just perfectly! As for me it’s even easier to work with developer women 🙂
Really @andrey ? :P
Hello Wojciech, welcome to our community.
Hello Claire, welcome to the community , guess what , you already on the right track to be a badass Dev😊
Hi Oluchi, please can you teach me python? Please
Hello Collins, thanks for reaching out and considering me a good fit to teach you python.
I would be happy to help but before that I would refer some good materials that could be of help.
Me too Ma
Hi, I want you to teach me too.
Me too. However i have started going through YT Python videos and started learning Python. Everyday practice with simple code makes you perfect in coding. Try to implement your own simple code samples. Thanks
Learning through videos feel a good approach?
Until unless it has a good content too.
Everyday practice...That's a perfect quote...
Wow love to work with you
Hi, I wish you good luck.
Hello Thuli and hope the future is bright with all your endeavors.
I love this...

Hi Claire, I'm 27 and a fronted developer. Good luck.

Hi Amitesh, I'm Katie, one of the basic moderators here on DEV.

Hello, nice area of interests
Thx you where are you located
Toronto, what about you ?
Hi Amitesh, i also want to learn machine learning.... nice to meet you here
Nice to hear about u are interested in machine learning.

Good luck with your search and enjoy trying.
Into quantum comp? Can you connect to me or may be on Github
I'm Bader (it's an Arabic name which means Full moon), I've been working as a Support Technician for 3 years and a half now (since I graduated actually) and honestly, I hate how my job can be done by a trained monkey and how everyone on my team can be easily replaced regardless of experience because there isn't any actual skill involved,Plus the pay sucks. (Sorry if I offended anyone xP)
Also literally no one wants you to learn and nobody wants you to improve (or even improvise and think outside the box) because "We already have tasks divided by Teams and we do everything by certain procedures" (which is all gibberish and kills your brain cells because of how messed up in reality the situation is) and that thing has literally caused me embarrassment in many interviews because my CV is literally nothing to be happy about - Naturally I can't brag about Paper Jams cleared .
Anyway, I stumbled upon dev.to a couple of days ago while looking for something to help me out of my current closed-end path and I hope that this'll be the push that gets me on the right way and into a career that I actually love, which is programming.
I am a beginner in lots of aspects, but I hope to learn from you guys and share whatever knowledge I have.
You are not alone bro. What you said I literally felt it. Its good to see someone trying despite all the odds. Keep on moving ahead.
I am new too here!
Everything has a START ;)
Hi Bader,I feel your pain:)). A beginner myself in this field, looking to change my career direction. Best of luck!
Welcome to DEV Bader!
You are doing the right then to chase your ambition on your own. Showing that initiative means so much
Hello, My name is Faith Kilonzi from Kenya.
I describe myself a curious software engineer, with passion for problem-solving through implementation of high-quality software products especially back-end and web-applications using a variety of programming languages and technologies.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Ashesi University in Ghana. I love to learn and teach everything technology and data.
Happy learning. Awesome to see folks from all around the world!
Hi Faith, welcome to the DEV community! I see you have already jumped in and made your first post, congratulations!! I hope you find all your needs met as you go through your coding journey.
Hopefully! Thank you @katie :)
Just as a note: in DEV, each user is assigned a name in the system. Yours is kilonzif and you refer to them with the @ sign. Mine is @katnel20 so using katie referred to someone else.
Well noted @katnel20
Just hover over someone's profile image and you can see their username in the URL. (Should of said this earlier, but couldn't do it on my phone LOL)
I wonder how hard it would be to add a performant "insta-search" feature to DEV for usernames while typing them 🤔 a lot of tools with large userbases seem to use something like that. Could be fun.
Anyways, welcome Faith!
Happy learning and coding.
Hi, I´m Andree. I a fresh web developer, and i have read a lot of articles here. I like to study programming, and hope one day make awesome video games.
Hi Andree! Have you started using any JS frameworks yet like React or Vue?
Not yet but it on my study list, thank for asking.
That's actually good, it's good to start with the basics. Check out freecodecamp if haven't already :)
Thanks, I will check it out

Hi fam! I'm a fullstack dev of 5 years and I love the process of taking my idea to a real thing on the internets. I did a CS degree, but have learned sooo much from all the various tutorials I've found. So now I have finally written my first (of many!) tutorials, and posted it here on dev!
Hi and welcome! I'll keep an eye on those tutorials
Hi. How are you?
Good luck with the career shift Tibi! I did it few years ago but still dreaming of becoming a developer. Writing the future with code is a breakthrough to human kind :)
Thanks. I need all the luck in the world. Every so often I get overwhelmed and think I'll never be able to learn anything but then I see the cool things people do with code and get back to it. :)
Lol, thats a funny way of describing dev.to XD
it's the most accurate way I could think of :D
Hi I'm Eric. I work in the healthcare field but want to become a developer of some sort. Currently I'm taking classes to get an associates in web design and development in my spare time. I already have a bachelors in psych with a focus on neuroscience. Hopefully I'm on the right path.
I feel like this transition might be a little challenging because i make a good living as a surgical neurophysiologist and cant afford to take a huge hit on my salary during the transition. I'm also locked into being close by to where I currently live (south central PA, USA). So there's that! HELLO WORLD!
Hi, it seems like you'd have some great opportunities at the intersection of healthcare and tech, as you've already got plenty of domain expertise in the former.
Good luck with your courses and career transition!
