Editor guide

Hello amazing developers. Am Rose Akoth, an android developer. I love java and kotlin. Am a beginner in learning web front-end development. I look forward in learning, sharing and connecting with you guys.


Welcome Rose, hope you learn many new things that enable you to advance your career.


Hi, welcome to community Rose.


welcome to dev.to, rose! hope you enjoy your stay. :)


Welcome Akoth :)


Hi Rose, I liked you hello-message. I almost never write in public forums, but your post inspired me to also do so 👍


Hi Rose, I just joined as well and happy to be here amongst like minded folks. I want to eventually get into app development as well. All the best!


Hello Rose, very nice to have people like you here.



I'm trying out DEV for my future blog posts.
I love python and am self taught, currently learning web development.

Nice to meet you all, I've enjoyed many articles from the DEV community. Hope to be a contributor.


Thats so amazing! what inspired you to learn?


After a while, the toll you see blue collar work take on yourself and the ones you love, pushes you over that line of indecision.

I didn't know if I could, but i no longer let that keep me from trying.


Welcome, Nellie.


Oh hey. Welcome Nellie!


Hello Nellie, welcome!


welcome Nellie, believe in yourself you have a great future ahead.


Came here because of a post I saw about the tragic death of Scott Allen. Even though I never met him, I consider him someone I looked up to and strived to be just like as a Pluralsight author myself. My fourth course on building Lightning Web Components for Salesforce was just released.


Yeah he was a great mentor, author, and teacher!


Hello ><, greetings.
I'm Asphira from Indonesia. I am a self-taught dev, currently I am a web developer still a beginner though and I'm here to learn and making some friends. looking forward to being a part of this community to learn new things and connecting with amazing dev here.


College in the US is terrible and insanely over priced. So I dropped out of Computer Science nearly 10 years ago and have been self taught every since. You learn a lot more for a lot less, plus you learn things in use today not 10+ years ago like college teaches LOL


High five to "self-taught" devs, figuring out stuff as we go along! Welcome aboard!


Ahaha thank you Dylan, high five!


Hi there!
I have learned more by myself than University has taught me.
So, good luck :-;


hello fellow Indonesian 👋🏻


Olá Asphira, sou do Brasil. E também estou iniciando no Desenvolvimento Web. Seja bem vinda.


Hello. I'm a self-taught dev. I currently work for a medium sized manufacturing company where I'm the sole dev for their custom built ERP system.

Not going to lie, I'm a bit burned out in my current job and I'm just looking to connect with other devs and figure out what I want my next adventure will be.



I'm the same. Looking to re-discover my love of tech, hopefully through Python.

All the best, good luck!



hey y'all - I'm a research librarian with interest in the intersections of libraries & information, and computers. I want to learn at the things. I love reading Dev posts and seeing how much overlap there are with the professions and how often we do not talk outside our silos.


Hi Tisha,
That's awesome! Libraries are an interesting place to watch the cross section of technology, information, and accessibility.


Sup, my dudes/dudettes? I'm Dylan and I'm a budding Quality Engineer who's moving from a career in manual testing to automation and web development. It's a big jump, and I'm currently in the "fake it 'til you make it" phase, learning as I go along!


hello Dylan!
in fact it is a big jump but nothing is impossible, just follow your mind.
i wish you archive your goals! Good luck dude.


Hi friends, am chris, java developer and a newbie in scala, was tracking a friend and landed myself here, I would really appreciate supports to help me learn. I might also have interesting stuff to share as well.


Hello. I am also a Scala Developer and I have a blog where I create lists of useful articles such as this one for Scala newcomers wp.me/pbkva6-9P and best practices wp.me/pbkva6-9r and this list of scala resources wp.me/pbkva6-1v I am also creating a Social networking platform written in Scala with a sample app written in Scala for developers to create apps based on the API. Register to stay updated about when the app will launch. I hope later this year. Scala allows for rapid development.


Thanks for your reply, will definitely checkout those links

Hello developers.
I am Cindy, 27 years old. Currently, I'm a Computer Science student in France and mostly self-taught. All my current knowledge learned in my spare time. I work with languages such as C, Java, C# with a touch of C++, and my learning is still going on.

My other interests include graphic design, animation and so on.

I discovered DEV while looking for a way to exchange and share information around programming and at the same time improve my English.
I have already read many articles from the DEV community that I have enjoyed.
Hope to be a contributor.

I don't know how I stumbled into dev.to, but here I am enjoying the day not working just refreshing ES6 syntax and going on with vue and vuex tutorials. Happy that to hear that I am not the only lost programmer, not knowing what he really wants in life, but still fighting my way to get my own product and company.


What wonders me is the world-wide community there is here!
It is great to read you all.
Thanks for your generosity and enthusiasm! These are what makes the worlds spins on and on!

BTW, I'm Mexican and live in a small city. I'm learning and learning and learning.
