Hello everyone!

I got here after reading a post shared on Twitter.
I am a software developer with a wide range of interests in development, operations, project management, AI/ML, and cloud computing.

Here with open mind to learning and unlearning as well as contributing my experience whenever the opportunity comes up.

Between, I love the aesthetics of this website. Well done!!

Seriously! You are! HAha I never thought I'd be able to actually interact with you. Your articles especially your Gifs are simply brilliant! Some big name university needs to give you an honorary doctorate already for your ability to teach complex concepts

Hey Biyanmin, great question! If it can be any topic I would ask you to recommend a sci-fi book. I think it would complement the technical reading and code I've been consuming recently. Otherwise, if you have a technical book that has helped you become a better developer I'm all ears!

Hello Ben, my previous background comes from the hospitality and travel industry. Got my fair share of solving problems for people and this is a very similar in that regards. I am enjoying the technical demands of the career.

Hello there.
I ended up here thanks to my job's boss giving me some links for a better understanding of a certain topic.
Right now I'm focused on learning Entity Framework Core, ASP .NET Core and Angular, although I'd like to get on to learn more languages and techniques after I finish with them, since I've got ideas for a personal project I'd like to develop.
Sometimes I have problems understanding specific concepts or ways in which code can work, but that won't hold me down.

Hi everyone! πŸ‘‹
Personally my name is John and I am going to manage the account of the company where I work: Dotnetsafer.

I am a security-oriented .NET developer and reverse engineer. I have seen this platform that I did not know, and I liked it! You have some very good articles and it shows that there are a good atmosphere and friendship between the members.

My goal is to contribute .NET articles that are related to security and to help people who need advice or contributions to improve the security of their applications. So if you like security, encryption and this whole world πŸ”πŸ’», we hope to help you a lot!
