Hello guy you work for LG Electronics.
That's great.

 
 

Hello! good to have you here.

 
 

Hello everyone, my name is Raji Oluwatobiloba, I am a software developer. I love to write and I am planning on using this platform to teach/communicate to people from my own little experience!

 

Hello how are you ? My name is Robinson and I write to you from Venezuela. I just started to learn Reactjs ... and I would like if you could guide me on the beginning of the session. I already have the Login interface and I redirect to the dashboard (in this case) ... but I don't know how to handle the user session? also the expiration time of that session? I've seen examples with LocalStorage but I don't know if that's a good practice ... I'd like to know if you can help me with an example? I did my backend with NodeJs Express connected to a Sql Server database ... Greetings...my email : loretoruiz@hotmail.com

 

Hi nice to meet you. You might be able to get some experience in the following project github.com/hyperledger/blockchain-... where I've joined as a OSS contributor. The project is using these tech stacks and always welcoming a new contributor. Cheers!

 

Hi Robinson, happy to help. Can we chat on hangouts or whatsapp?

Hello, thanks for answering ... I do not speak English ... I speak Spanish ... but can you help me with the google translator ... can you show me an example of what I ask in the forum?

Okay, if i were in your shoes, i'd use localstorage or cookies.
but I prefer localstorage.
normally you will be getting a token from the backend when you are logging users right? so just do it this way:

this will be at the point of logging in users
axios.post ('url', {
user,
})
.then (response => {
localStorage.setItem ('token', 'randomstringtokentopersistdata');

then on your dashboard page, just go like this.

const token = localStorage.getItem ('token');

you can store this token in a state and use it all over your app as it can be accessed anywhere.

I understand friend ... and how do you manage the session expiration time?

You can use JavaScript session storage

sessionStorage.setItem('token', 'randomstring')

const data = sessionStorage.getItem('token');

// to remove user data from sessionStorage

sessionStorage.removeItem('token');

I understand friend ... I have a doubt ... how are global variables handled in Reactjs ?? that is ... if I want to save and be able to use the variable == >> const name = '' in ALL my application; that variable will take a value when the user enters the system ... and from another component I want to use it ... that is, I want to get the value of that variable name ... can you help me?

You can store that variable in state and pass it as props to whatever component you need it(you'll need to read more on passing props) React official documentation is the best place to start.

Moreover, you'll reach a stage where passing this supposed variable from one component to another will be a pain in the ass, then you should use a state management, the popular one is redux. You'll need to go learn redux too. But for now, since you're just starting to learn react, try learning how to pass state as a props from one component to another.

Let me know if you need more clarification.

 

Hello Raji, nice to meet you :)

 

Hello, nice to meet you! Awesome to see your already helping others out!

 

Welcome Raji.. That's the great goal to teach people.. best of luck here

 

Hi Raji! Same here, I think teaching is a fundamental way to solidify our own learning.

hey Juan, take a look at our website Mangoitsolutions, here you will find most of the relevant topics related to web development

 
 

What kinds of applications do you like writing?

 

Hello, well my current skills allow me to build static sites, but would really want to be able to add a lot more functionality to the sites. Currently learning node.js, mangoo and cant wait to start react. Goal is to land a job as a front end developer and ofcourse keep learning and improving.

Hi, Where are you based ?

Im lead dev at MEV Suite (mevapp.com) and we are looking forward to hiring Frontend Interns from anywhere in the world who may join our team fully.

See you around here.

Hello, I'm in Montreal, Canada.

Thats nice, Have you hosted any work so far already ?

 

Hey, Call me wiz lol..... Amma keep it short... Really hope this platform can help advance my development skills

 
 

welcome wiz.. I hope same too.. :)

 
 

Hi Folks! I'm a software dev (mostly Ruby) and a random hobbyist. I've been stumbling across dev.to posts for a while, finally decided to take the plunge. Happy to be here ^_^
-Viki, she/her

 

I would really like to learn Ruby

 

welcome Viki.. whenever I see ruby developer.. I feel happy.. Ruby is underrated and people often bash ruby :(.. but I really enjoy learning ruby.. currently trying to get better in ruby and rails..

 

Thanks! ^_^ I really enjoy Ruby, and it's perfectly fine for a lot of things. It does have some limitations I don't fully understand, especially around concurrency and performance, and that's okay. Not everything has to be as fast as it can possibly be, and Ruby can also be made performant enough for a lot of use cases.

I heard ruby 3 will introduce static type checking and much more to make ruby fast.. let's see

 
 
 
 

Hello, this is Daniel Roy Greenfeld from Los Angeles, California, USA. I am python, javascript, and C#/Unity developer who has worked for NASA, EventBrite, and an InsureTech. I've written books on software, Two Scoops of Django and Django Crash Course. I'm working on more books for Python and C#/Unity.

I love being a constant learner and student. I eagerly devour what people have to say on coding. The day you stop being willing to learn is the day your career as a developer is over. :-)

 

I agree with you 100%. The desire to learn is integral to success as a developer. I've been a developer for over 20 years, across many different languages and technologies. Whenever I'm asked about this type of career, I point out that you will never really feel like you have arrived at a full understanding of anything - there is ALWAYS something new to learn and so many different areas of expertise. This is part of what I love about it! Never bored. ;-)

 
 

Hi Daniel,

Nice to meet you here. Your book helped me to develop better system with Django at our place. Thank you very much.

 

Hi Devs! 👋 I'm Víctor and I'm a Full Stack developer. I love code, the Cloud, DevOps and also interested in cutting-edge technologies that can help solve real-world problems, such as Artificial Intelligence or Big Data...I hope to contribute to this fantastic community!

Woow nice to reading! i am starting as a trainee in a big company in my country, it is supposed i will get full-stack and I will do my best to get it!

 

Debugging and troubleshooting got me here, but the dev articles made me stay .. Unlike Medium (sorry) I find dev.to to be more tech focussed, meaning less of promotion and more code..

PS: I am an active 9gager too.. so here's a 🥔 (potato) for long post.

 

Hello, I'm Jared!

I'm (professionally) a web developer, but (unprofessionally) I try to tackle graphic design & illustration, game design & development, 3D modeling & animation. I also enjoy reading, wood carving, archery, the earth, my girlfriend and my 2 cats :)

I followed Dev.to on Twitter for quite some time, but never found my way to the site!

Well, I'm here now and excited to see what I can learn. 👋🏼

Hi Guys!

Im David from Spain, actually working like Junior Web Development and studing CS Degree, also like make little projects with arduino.

Im here because love the community and want to learn a lot of new things and improve my code and Why Not? make some new friends.

Thx for read!😊

 

I have a pyspark project where I have a dataframe shown below:

   +----------+--------------------------------+
   | Index    |           flagArray            |
   +----------+--------------------------------+
   |    1     | ['A','S','A','E','Z','S','S']  | 
   +----------+--------------------------------+
   |    2     | ['A','Z','Z','E','Z','S','S']  |
   +--------- +--------------------------------+

I want to represent array elements with its corresponding numeric values.

     A - 0
     F - 1
     S - 2
     E - 3
     Z - 4

So my output dataframe should look like

   +----------+--------------------------------+--------------------------------+
   | Index    |           flagArray            |           finalArray           |
   +----------+--------------------------------+--------------------------------+
   |    1     | ['A','S','A','E','Z','S','S']  | [0, 2, 0, 3, 4, 2, 2]          | 
   +----------+--------------------------------+--------------------------------+
   |    2     | ['A','Z','Z','E','Z','S','S']  | [0, 4, 4, 3, 4, 2, 2]          |
   +--------- +--------------------------------+--------------------------------+

I have written an udf in pyspark where I am achieving it by writing some if else statements. Is there any better way to handle the same.

Hi guys!
I'm a freelance Product Designer, I lived in Milan🇮🇹 but then moved to Paris 🇫🇷.
I'm currently working full remote for a blockchain powered startup.
I'm interested in software development methodologies and the way designers and developers can effectively work as a team. I'll learn something new here but of course I will also share my experiences.

Hello all,

I'm a software developer with about, ah, 30 years professional experience. Lots of C++, Objective-C, Python, Java. Increasing amounts of Swift. I've done a lot of media programming and I'm currently working with an avatar start-up in Venice, California. I've been living in Los Angeles for about five years, and previously spent many years in the UK and Australia.

I'm joining because a Microsoft employee published an article on Twine here, which I though was pretty damn cool, considering that I'm an Interactive Fiction aficionado.

 

This week is my first week as a Developer Advocate for JFrog. I'm excited to learn from all of you and hopefully leverage my years of development experience to contribute some meaningful content. Can't wait to jump in! At the moment I'm looking into the history of containers and deep diving into how we use them today.
