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.


Cool good luck with that. Stay consistent and don't give yourself any excuses to stop!


Welcome to Dev Community Luciano! Keep Going 👍


good learning full of passion bro


Hey Luciano, I'm also a newbie here. Great to hear you challenging yourself and good luck with #100daysofcode


Good luck! I hope you write about the best resources you're finding on your journey.


Welcome buddy. Do feel free to give us a holler should you have any question and big-ups to you for joining the dev family.


From where are you learning? 🤔


Learn it very well because you are on the right path my dear.


Hello, good luck with the learning. I'm open to helping out with HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap 3 or 4.


Hello. Good luck with #100daysofcode and with the things you're learning.


Learning new things is always a good idea! Wish you fast improvement and the possibility to use all your knowledge!


Hey friends,
I'm Ebenezer Ndukwe, a passionate Frontend Developer who loves to convert User Interface designs into reusable codes. I so much love CSS, my friends call me Lord of CSS. I have over 3 years coding Experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Vue.js.
Here is my Portfolio Website ebenezy.dev
Hoping to write some articles with my few years of coding to share my thoughts and ideas.


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?


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.


Welcome to the community Ebenezer. What a great website you have! 🙌


Hi Ebenezer, your website looks sooo gooood!! welcome to DEV🎉


Hello! Welcome to the dev.to community! Your site look amazing! 🎉🙌


Thank you Luciano. I am glad to be here.


I love your site!

Have to say, despite coding and designing my own product prototypes, I've never been the type to advertise my efforts well. Hoping to gain some inspiration around these parts.


Thank you Dean. Am glad that my profile could inspire you.


Hope you've had a great experience so far! your website does look amazing. It would be a better read if your about section stays in 3rd person / 1st person, my 0.02$.


Hi Aarif, thanks for the observation, I will correct that.
Thank you.


Great Portfolio on your website. Congrats.


Hey Ebenezer,

You have such a simple and beautiful portfolio website. I am really amazed.
Good work!


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.


Welcome JD! The JS community is the most vibrant one around here, hope you enjoy your time reading and maybe even sharing some of those CSS tricks with the rest of us



Awwww wish you all the best with the new journey


Hey JD! I also went from backend to frontend. Glad to hear of more Typescript fans!


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.


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. 😀


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.


Hi all! I'm Chen, jack-of-all-trades engineer from Tel Aviv, Israel.
Currently heading engineering at a new startup.

Proud to join this excellent community and excited to learn as much as I can,
and to help others too!


Hi Chen. What kind of startup? Just out of curiosity. 🙃 I'm new here too!


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 :-)


Hi Chen

Me you both :)
Very excited to join the community and can't wait to learn from all the members.


Hi Chen, I'm Codin. May you find fortune in your future prospects.


Hi Everyone,
I am Ram, from the begging of my career started working in mobile development using Flutter. Slowly moving towards the web and started using Vue.js. Now heading towards React as it is very popular and personally started liking it.


Hello there! I'm using Flutter myself. What made you abandon it?


Hi Ram and welcome to DEV. You'll definitely get help and tips from others in React here!



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.

❤️, Lauren

Hi everyone!! I'm Nai, from Spain. I love to code, specially JS.
I am studying a course and starting to do my own projects, I hope one day to work as a developer in the UK or Ireland, it would be my dream.
Thanks !!


Nice Nai! JS is one of the most in-demand languages - you will find a job in UK or IRE I am sure :) Learn React if you can, it ranks highly for job offers.


Thank you very much for your response, I will study React as soon as I feel comfortable coding with JS, thanks for your advice !!

Hello dev.to community. I've been here for over a year but pretty inactive as work and college took most of my time. Now I'm expanding my horizons learning mobile development, better frontend practices and ML plus plenty of soft skills. How's your day?


Hi everyone! :) About a year ago I decided to leave my day job as a data engineer at a start up and become a company on my own. Yes, that's right. I am now a non-scalable, self-improving product you can rent per hour that will do all sorts of data science stuff for you! Especially deep learning and machine learning are favourite things to do and also 🔥topics in general and it is going to stay this way in this decade so you better buckle up and hop on! uuuuh weee! (I am a huge Rick and Morty fan btw) If you want to find out more about what I do and did go to my website MLisjuststatisticsindisguise.com, uuuh libiseller.work I mean. :))

(This post is an experiment. I usually act professionally in meetings. ☺️)
