I am new to the coding world and am intimidated a bit, but curious nonetheless to learn it. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! I should back up a bit by saying that I am not totally new to the coding world as I am the Director of Customer success for the wonderful company @Feldroy. I take care of a lot of different things that encompass the company, with the exception of the technical coding part of things. So, that's why I am here, to be able to better assist with our customers' technical questions.
Whew, I did it! As intimidating as it was, I feel good about taking the first step into this new world. Cheers everyone!

Hi everyone wave, I'm Debra-Kaye, a Graphic Designer. I've always been interested in Information Technology (design and programming) and studied I.T. at university, but coding didn't stick and I never got into the field. Now I'm re-learning coding through self-study as I aspire to become a Frontend Developer.

Looking forward to connecting with and learning from you all :).

How is your self study coming along? Where are you studying? I am on a self study right now as well. Currently I am on edX

Yo! Name is Jo, and I'm new here. I love a whole bunch of coding things, especially fun stuff. I found this place by clicking someone's link. Just starting out my first full time software developer job in a week using Python (which I've been cramming this week since I haven't learnt it before now). Before now I've learnt Ruby and Rails, Javascript and the MERN stack, plus the obvious HTML and CSS that go with web dev stuff.

So tell mw what's fun to do around here and what are some post I should definitely read?

Hello! I've lurked reading posts on for a couple years, and finally decided to jump in and introduce myself.

I'm a software engineer (mostly big data -- so much Hadoop) turned startup entrepreneur over the past 6 months. I dabble in personal OSS projects, and mess around answering questions on Quora, but mostly I work : ), so I figured the best way to introduce myself was to post what I've been building.

(the tl,dr is, I feel passionate about helping empower everyone at a company who can script. We've tried to make it easy for anyone to build cloud-native internal tools, whether they're a full-time dev, or spend 2 hours a week hacking in Python).

I've gotten a lot out of the posts I've read here, and hope I can contribute back now and then. Look forward to getting to know everyone (or at least some of you).

About me ? I'm not ready to discuss that but what brought me here ? Yes. So , I saw this tweet about an open source project someone is working on and I love it, it something that will be useful and fun. After I finish reading the article , I saw another one again . This one is all I want at this moment and I want to comment then I have to join and now have joined I don't know how to get to my previous page . I expect after the login it should redirect me to my favourite article I want to comment on but it brought me here 🙄.

Hello Everyone
My work brought me here, I was told to write a documentation for bitbucket pipeline that I implemented for the company I work for so, instead of writing the documentation/tutorial in google sheets as previous devs of the company did, I decided to write a blog post and share it with the world so everyone can benefit from it. First I resolved to write the blog on medium but it required a stripe account which isn't supported in my country. Then I came across the articles from from which I realized this is the place which is developer centric and I will write the documentation/tutorial on this platform

Hi, I'm new to Dev, I usually participate in Stack Overflow to ask and answer questions. I used to like blogging but can't be bothered to setup a blog using Wordpress any more, then stumbled across Dev whilst reading about a good example of a 'fast site'.

I'm contemplating writing some technical posts here, although I don't like the idea that I can't monazite the posts (ads)?
