Hey! I'm learning Haskell and working as a technical recruiter for DreamITJobs.
I hope to be able to make my own little helper tools with Haskell in the next couple of years.
I also find people cool remote jobs :)

Nice! You might want to follow this tag - #haskell (or maybe write a post under it 🙂).

Similarly, consider checking out DEV Listings and scanning the Available for Hire section to see if there's any folks you might can reach out to about finding jobs. Or, maybe you even want to write your own listing!

Anyway, just to say, I hope you have a good time on DEV!

Hi, I am a Software Development Manger living in the UK. 9 years ago I moved into management which has taken me away from what I love to do (Coding). I am now in a position to get back to being hands on and I'm very keen to learn as much as I can. My main skillset is C#, Architecture, Microservices and most recently JavaScript and React.

Hi Jesse,

Thanks for the welcome, much appreciated.
I've worked for small, medium and large organisations and to be honest it's more about the culture that they adopt. You're 100% right that you get to do a bit of everything in smaller companies which is my aim.
I'm currently learning React with Maximilian (Udemy course) and while the course is over 40 hours it takes at least 3 to 4 times longer by the time you stop and start the video, write the code, go back over stuff, but it has to be done. I'm new to dev.to but I'm guessing its about the community sharing their articles, thoughts, challenges and expertise? I'll contribute when I feel comfortable (would love to write some articles) but in the meantime I'll use this time away from work to learn as much as I possibly can.
Oh and yes, I have always lived in the UK.

Cheers
John

Izz • Edited on

Hello DEV community!
I'm 23 years-old. I graduated with a degree in Business Administration (General) and was pursuing a career in Finance. I've recently grew interest in programming and I've decided to switch my career. One problem is that I can't stop thinking I'm TOO OLD or that I won't be able to comprehend the knowledge a CS graduate has or someone who started coding when they were like 17 or something.
I'm a perfectionist and being just good at what I do won't be enough for me. I need to be excellent which is why I'm here; I'm hesitant to start learning and end up exerting my time and efforts on something that I may never be good enough at or maybe mediocre (my greatest nightmare). I need advice and friends or maybe learning buddies. Is it really too late?

Hi,
I'm a French engineering student (mostly mechanics and electric, but also a little touch of CS).
I'm here because I have a web app project and I found interesting articles here on many occasions.
The creation of this account made me discover what seems to be a very active and welcoming community.
I hope I will be able to give back to the community as much as you all.

nosseb profile image
Robinson Besson • Edited on

Well, in the French education system, we have two years of broad education before the selection for the actual engineering school. So although I am mostly studying mecanical and electrical engineering at the moment, I will still be able to apply for schools that have CS majors.

The reason behind the web app is that I stumbled upon a management issue within a nonprofit. The solution need to connect to the internet and have an accessible GUI and be cross platform, thus the web app.

Edit : Oh, and thank you for your greetings.

Hello Guys,
I'm new here !!
What's your opinion about this app?
Hope someone can give me an advice about should i learn advanced things in a lot of things, or is better to specialize in one language or one subject as mobile apps for example?

Collapse
piguicorn profile image
LogUI 🌈

Hi! New to this app too. If you wanna find a job, I think it's better to specialize. I have learnt a lot of frameworks and libraries for the last year and trust me, that doesn't work. Instead of spending 10 hours in mastering 1 technology, I wasted 1 hour in 10 different technologies. Now I know a little about a lot of things, but I am advanced in none.

Try to focus on one thing and once and only once you feel confident enough, change to another.

Collapse

Jesse M. Holmes

I'm not here to agree or disagree, but I spent three years getting really good at only Angular, and now I am in my second year as a developer in a React shop. Learning one skill really well can be transferable to other skills. Likewise, it wouldn't have been nearly as easy to learn Angular after ten years of playing music instead of programming if I hadn't specialized in PHP/WordPress beforehand.

Now that I've specialized in a few areas, I find it much easier to pick up a new, albeit related, skill.

Also, welcome to the community!
