Hello dear dev.to community! I am Luciano. About 6 months ago I decided to learn some programming. I am currently in the #100daysofcode challenge and am in the 30 day. I made some progress in HTML and CSS so far and am currently learning Bootstrap 4 and JavaScript.
I can't say what my goal is yet. However, I am happy to learn a lot of new things every day.

Man, your website looks amazing! I love that style. When you're designing something, do you start with something that looks great and then work out the practical stuff, or do you make something functional and then make it look cool?

Ebenezer Ndukwe

Thank you, Henry,
When designing something, I start with something that looks great and then work out the practical stuff.
The reason is, when your website is not looking great, nobody will bother to check the functionalities.
The good looks come first.

Hi everyone,
I'm JD. I used to do mostly backend stuff, but I've started migrating toward frontend.

I'm a huge fan of Javascript and it's ability to go anywhere, although I mostly write in Typescript these days.

I think privacy is important and I think more support is needed for browsers without Javascript or cookies enabled. I'm currently utilising CSS to make it do things it wasn't meant for, but makes a great alternative to JS.

Also, I have a soft spot for real time communications, such as IRC and it's modern day equivalents.

Hello Dev.to community! my name is Mary,
Am pursuing a degree in computer Applications, in my final year, I hv learned many programming languages like c,c++,data structure, html & css with js, java and php, I hv a little knowledge of all these programming languages but am finding it difficult to choose which one is good for me. My goal is to become a software engineer. I need some advice on how to choose the best programming language.

Collapse
 
tallangroberg profile image
Tallan Groberg

Hey Mary, thanks for following me!

The best advice I can give is Web Dev. I am biased and here is why.

The web is So visible. non-tech savvy people can appreciate your work and its easy to get into and hard to master.

the stacks to build web are moving into other areas like VR and AR as well as Mobile dev with React Native, Ionic, webGL, ect...

No matter what you get into, you're not going to love or hate the languages, in my opinion, you are going to love or hate your commitment level to a skill. I recommend that you specialize in one thing and then diversify.

Welcome, Mary! I suppose you can choose a programming language by asking yourself "What I'll be building or working on for the next couple of years?" Take that tech stack and learn that programming language, see if you're comfortable and are able to make projects or code on your own. That might be your next favourite programming language! Else, find an alternative.

I hope that helped. ๐Ÿ˜€

Welcome on board, Mary.
I think you should focus on these firstly HTML & CSS and JavaScript, once you master these, then proceed to learn JavaScript Frameworks and you can fly from there because the trend is shifting towards that direction.
In the process, find your strength (Frontend or Backend or FullStack Developer)
This is what I also did and am excelling in these areas.

Woah! What a friendly community.

Our startup: our team has been founding, growing, exiting and investing in companies for 20 years.

The problem we keep seeing: people are (generally) not effective communicators.
As companies grow, the issue becomes even more painful and
operations start to break down. leading to negative consequences for companies that CAN be prevented.

We're fixing it. Stay tuned :-)

Hello.

I'm a life long code tinkerer. It has recently come to my attention that I'm better at programming than I thought. Now I just wanna get better. So the internet brought me here.

I use SAS at work, but I rather enjoy Python. I'm better at R though. I started my code tinkering with C and HTML. I think Julia is really cool but haven't had much time to tinker yet. I should probably learn Java? Or JavaScript?

Idk, I'm rambling. Looking forward to reading.

Hey All,

Iโ€™m Beatrice, Bea for short! Iโ€™ve been teaching myself HTML, CSS and JavaScript through online courses and evening classes.

At the beginning of the year, I was accepted on to a bootcamp which started at the beginning of Feb.

3 weeks in and Iโ€™ve been introduced to C#, .NET, Razor, APIs, MVC. Also weโ€™ve learnt HMTL, CSS, JavaScript, UX/UI, Web accessibility and Web responsiveness.
I love CSS and how powerful it is - I canโ€™t wait to learn more. Also I enjoy putting the user first when Iโ€™m coding.

So far, Iโ€™ve been loving my tech journey through the highs and lows.

My goal is to get my first role in tech preferably front end development but as Iโ€™m also learning back end dev too, Iโ€™m keeping myself open to new possibilities.
